Who can Gareth Southgate’s England face in Euro 2024 Round of 16?

With four points from their first two games, England is guaranteed a place in the round of 16, regardless of the outcome of their final group match against Slovenia

Gareth Southgate’s England secured their spot in the UEFA Euro 2024 knockout stages after Spain’s victory over Albania on Monday. With four points from their first two games, England is guaranteed a place in the round of 16, regardless of the outcome of their final group match against Slovenia. However, the result of tonight’s game will influence who England faces next and determine their path forward thus ahead of England vs Slovenia let us see who England will face in the Euro 2024 Round of 16.

England win against Slovenia

If England wins against Slovenia, they will top Group C with seven points. This victory would mean that Gareth Southgate’s side will face one of the best third-placed finishers from Groups D, E, or F in Gelsenkirchen on Sunday at 5 pm. Potential opponents include Austria from Group D, Romania, Belgium, Slovakia, or Ukraine from Group E, and the Czech Republic from Group F. Despite some criticism for their lacklustre performances so far, topping the group would be a favourable outcome.

England draw against Slovenia

A draw tonight would complicate matters. England’s final position would depend on the result of the Denmark vs. Serbia match. If Denmark fails to beat Serbia, England will still top the group. However, if Denmark wins, both teams will be tied on points, and the group winner will be decided by goal difference, goals scored, and disciplinary points. Currently, England’s goal difference is one better than Denmark’s.

Regardless of how they top the group, this outcome would still mean a round-of-16 encounter with one of the best third-placed finishers from Groups D, E, or F. If England finishes second in the group, they will face the Group A winners, Germany, in the round of 16.

England lose against Slovenia

If England loses to Slovenia, they could still finish as runners-up in Group C if Serbia beats Denmark or the match ends in a draw. In this scenario, England would still advance to the round of 16. However, if Denmark wins, England will drop to third place in the table. As a third-place finisher, England would play either the Group F winner, Portugal, in Frankfurt on Monday, July 1, at 8 pm, or the Group E winner, currently Romania, in Munich on Tuesday, July 2.
