Scotland are set to face England at Wembley in the group stage of Euro 2020 should they qualify for the finals.

Hampden had already been named as the host for at least two of Scotland's group games - should they qualify - and it was also known that England would be in the same section if they made it.

But Uefa have confirmed if only one of the two countries automatically qualifies, they will host three games.

England are set to make it, but the Scots are out of contention.

Manager Steve Clarke has already conceded that his side will not qualify automatically after they slipped to fifth in Group I following a 4-0 defeat at home to Belgium.

However, under predecessor Alex McLeish, they had already topped their Nations League group to secure a place in March's play-off semi-finals - meaning they are two games from a Euro 2020 spot.

As it stands, Scotland's semi-final opponents are likely to be Bulgaria, who finished second to Finland in their Nations League group. The Finns are on course to qualify automatically, meaning their play-off berth would go to the Bulgarians.

The other play-off semi-final is expected to be between Norway and Serbia, with both currently struggling to qualify automatically.

Uefa has also said a draw will be held to decide if Scotland would be at home should they reach the final.

Uefa's executive committee meeting in Slovenia also agreed on format changes to the 2020-21 Nations League.

It also confirmed that Scotland will be in the second tier - effectively a promotion - in the next Nations League.
