I'm reasonably pleased, although I would have preferred that England avoided a home international.

Group E is clearly the Group of Death, although Group D is fairly competitive, too.

If England win their group, and they should, they will play a third-placed team in the last 16 and then, potentially, Belgium, Italy or Portugal in the quarters. If they don’t lose on penalties in the quarters, they could meet Spain in the semis.

England got an easy group and should play a third placed team . Northern Ireland got a tough draw and will be fortunate to advance. Wales and the Republic of Ireland's best hopes of advancing are as a third placed team/
