    UEFA has confirmed seeding pots for the 2020 European Championship, where some teams are slotted into groups ahead of the draw next week

    UEFA has confirmed seeding pots for the 2020 European Championship, where some teams are slotted into groups ahead of the draw next week


    An unusual draw for the 24-nation tournament is made on November 30 - four months before four final entries are decided in a play-offs round - and with seven of the 12 host nations already allocated to groups giving them home games in the tournament.

    The 20 direct qualifiers are ranked according to points gained and goal difference tiebreakers in 10 preliminary groups completed this week.

    Top-ranked Belgium, who are not a host nation, have to be pooled with Russia and Denmark in Group B played in St Petersburg and Copenhagen.

    Either Wales or Finland from seeding pot 4 will complete that group.
