Luck was on Spain’s side this Sunday at the Frankfurt Convention Center, venue for the draw for the qualifying phase of Euro 2024 in Germany. The red one dodged England and France, the two most important rivals she could come across, and she should get her passport stamped without too much trouble. Scotland, Norway, Georgia and Cyprus will be their rivals.

The main attraction in the group of Spain, group A, will be the crossing with Haaland’s Norway, which was located in the third ranking of the draw, and against which it was already measured on the way to Euro 2020, although the current striker of the City was unable to play due to injury.

Before the duel with Norway, Riedle’s innocent hand had paired the Spanish with Scotland. The fourth member of group A will be Georgia, who was already the rival of Luis Enrique’s men on the way to the World Cup in Qatar and a few years before on the way to the World Cup in Brazil, all four games ending in victory for Spain.

The last member of the group will be Cyprus. One of the great unknowns in the Spanish key will be to discover who will sit on the bench in this qualifying phase since it should be remembered that Luis Enrique has a contract until the World Cup in Qatar and has not confirmed whether he wishes to continue or not.

It should be remembered that according to the rules of the draw, Spain, like the other three finalists of the Nations League (Holland, Croatia and Italy) has been framed in one of the seven groups of five teams, leaving another three of six. The qualifying phase will begin on March 23, 2023 and will end on November 21 of the same year.

The top two finishers from each group will join host Germany in stamping their passport to the European Championship. The remaining three spots will be awarded through the Nations playoff.

The European Championship will start in Munich on June 14, 2024 and the final will take place in Berlin on July 14.
