England could face Scotland at Euro 2020 if both qualify for finals

London’s Wembley Stadium has gained four matches as a result of Brussels being stripped of the right to host Euro 2020 games

UEFA has confirmed that all Group D games of the 2020 European Football Championship will be played in London and Glasgow, meaning that Wembley Stadium was given an additional four matches besides the semifinals and final.

Cardiff and Stockholm - which hosted last year's Champions League and Europa League finals respectively - had hoped to fill the breach but the decision was made to expand Wembley's allocation.

According to UEFA, each qualified host country will play at least two matches at home.

"This means Wembley will host a total of seven matches since London was already set to stage the semi-finals and final of the tournament", it said in a statement.

UEFA also divided host cities into pairs, with each pair sharing matches in a given group.

The Football Association of Wales said it was "extremely disappointed" with the news its bid for four Euro 2020 games had been unsuccessful.

Bilbao and Dublin have been paired together in Group E and Munich and Budapest will host Group F games.

Brussels has lost the right to be a host for the tournament because of delays in the construction of the 60,000-capacity Eurostadium project on the site of Heysel.

Glenn, who has previously pledged that the FA will sink millions into upgrading the national stadium before the tournament, paid tribute to Mayor of London Sadiq Khan for his support.

Well if and WHEN we qualify for the next major tournament, it looks as though the green faithful won't have to travel to far in order to see the Boys in Green play.

Speaking at a press conference in Nyon, which was broadcast on its website, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said the decision to take the games from Brussels was unanimous after the Belgian authorities failed to provide guarantees the new stadium would be ready.
