Could England and Spain meet in the Euro 2024 final? All you need to know ahead of the knockout stages

ENGLAND and Spain could clash in a mouth-watering Euro 2024 final after each team’s potential route to the July 14 showpiece in Berlin was revealed.

With the enthralling group stage wrapped up, players and coaches now have an idea of who they may face as the tournament continues to progress.

England, who topped their group despite a trio of uninspiring performances, could benefit from a side of the draw which lacks many of the traditional big-hitters.

On the other hand Spain, who were the eye-catching stars of the group stages after coming through their so-called ‘Group of Death’ of Italy, Croatia and Albania with three wins and zero goals conceded, could face the likes of Germany, Portugal, France or Belgium on their way to the final.
