While Ireland may not be competing in the postponed Euro 2020 tournament this month, there is plenty to look forward to as the best international teams in Europe go head to head for the Henri Delaunay Trophy.

The current World Cup champions France are seen as hot favourites, but they are in the same group with current European champions Portugal, 2014 World Cup winners Germany and Hungary.

Euro 2020 will also be the first tournament in 23 years for Scotland after qualifying through the playoffs. The 1998 World Cup was the last time they took part in a major tournament.
