The two remaining places in Group D will be filled by one of France, Poland, Switzerland, Croatia, as well as Portugal, Turkey, Austria, Sweden, Czech Republic.

That means that Scotland could potentially be in a group with reigning World Cup champions France, reigning European Championship winners Portugal and England.

What format will the tournament follow?

The tournament will consist of six groups, with two teams progressing to the knockout phase.

Third place teams in the groups will be ranked by their group record on points, and the top four of the six third placed teams will advance to the knockout phase.
