England headed into their Euro 2024 qualification schedule looking to recover from the heartbreak of their 2022 World Cup exit.

The Three Lions couldn't hold their nerve against France in the quarter-finals but will be looking to go one better than their previous Euros outing when they were beaten by Italy on penalties.

Gareth Southgate has committed himself to another crack at an international tournament, but first, he needs to navigate the qualification stage.

Here's what you need to know about England's Euro 2024 qualifiers.

England's Euro 2024 qualifying campaign got off to the perfect start as they secured four consecutive wins over every opponent in Group, besting Italy, Ukraine, Malta and North Macedonia while conceding one goal.

It was a historic night in Naples for Gareth Southgate's Three Lions last March as they secured their first victory against the Azzurri on Italian shores since 1961, while Harry Kane became his country's all-time leading goalscorer.

A lack of control in the second period combined with Luke Shaw's late dismissal meant they had to grind out the three points in their first qualifier before they eased to victory over Ukraine.

Malta and North Macedonia were dispatched by an aggregate 11-0 win before Ukraine spoiled England's copybook. In the nation's nominal home fixture which was held in Poland, Ukraine held their lofty visitors to a 1-1 draw in September.

The bright start means Germany and Euro 2024 are already well within their sights.

How can England qualify for Euro 2024?

There are just five teams in England's group with the top two qualifying for Euro 2024. Group C looked tricky on paper, but a commanding start stands the Three Lions in good stead to top the group.

With three games remaining, England are on the cusp of qualification. A victory over Italy at Wembley would not only guarantee passage to Germany next summer but also confirm their status at the top of the group.


When is Euro 2024?

The month-long Euro 2024 finals will start on Friday, June 14, with the final scheduled to take place at Berlin’s Olympiastadion on Sunday, July 14.

The tournament will take place across ten host cities: Berlin, Cologne, Dortmund, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Gelsenkirchen, Hamburg, Leipzig, Munich and Stuttgart.
