Germany will face the Netherlands in one of the toughest groups of Euro 2020 qualifying.

The draw, which happened Sunday in Dublin, pitted the Germans against the Dutch in the apparent "Group of Death." It's likely the most interesting quintet of the qualifying round and another chance to see the two traditional powerhouses - which met in the UEFA Nations League as recently as November - go head to head.

England and defending European champion Portugal can rest easy knowing they have manageable pathways to Euro 2020. Meanwhile, Italy, which missed out on the 2018 World Cup, prepares to do battle with Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Group A: England, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Kosovo

Group B: Portugal, Ukraine, Serbia, Lithuania, Luxembourg

Group C: Netherlands, Germany, Northern Ireland, Estonia, Belarus

Group D: Switzerland, Denmark, Republic of Ireland, Georgia, Gibraltar

Group E: Croatia, Wales, Slovakia, Hungary, Azerbaijan

Group F: Spain, Sweden, Norway, Romania, Faroe Islands, Malta

Group G: Poland, Austria, Israel, Slovenia, Macedonia, Latvia

Group H: France, Iceland, Turkey, Albania, Moldova, Andorra

Group I: Belgium, Russia, Scotland, Cyprus, Kazakhstan, San Marino

Group J: Italy, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Finland, Greece, Armenia, Liechtenstein

The Euro 2020 qualifiers will run from March 2019 to November 2019, with the winners and runners-up in each group handed direct tickets to the final tournament.

In addition, the winners of each of the 16 groups in the concurrent Nations League will have a chance to qualify via the playoffs. Group winners that reach Euro 2020 through the qualifying round will pass their playoff berth to the next-best team.

Four playoff spots will be up for grabs.
