    No, the associations in each gruop usually decide between themselves who the host is

    Sweden just gone 2-1 up on Scotland!

    It appears not, although that would have made a lot of sense - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_U...ication#Format

    Elite round: The 28 teams are drawn into seven groups of four teams. Each group is played in single round-robin format at one of the teams selected as hosts after the draw. The seven group winners qualify for the final tournament.

    2-2 with a couple of minutes remaining. We're safe enough anyway as Croatia are 1-0 up on Czech Rep near half time.

    We can always count on the Scots. Finished 2-2 so we are confirmed as top seeds.

    Final standings: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_U...on#Elite_round
    Draw on Thursday fortnight - the 6th.
    We can't draw the Netherlands, having played them in the Qualifying Round

    I'd take Hungary, Azerbaijan, and Cyprus
    Worst case scenario is Serbia/Russia/Czech Republic, England/Turkey, and Belgium/Croatia
    An improving Scotland in Pot 2 as well

    Interesting that there's a few teams that were in the same groups in Pot 3 - England & Turkey from Group 5 and Ukraine & Norway from Group 8 - this doesn't give them any advantage since two teams from the same group can't be drawn together, and two teams in the same pot can't be drawn together either

    Draw completed, Ireland facing Russia, Azerbaijan and Romania - with Russia hosting. Not the worst draw, considering some of the other groups

    Fixtures to take place in March - Romania on the 20th, Azerbaijan on the 23rd and the probably group decider against Russie on the 26th: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_U...tion#Group_1_2

    That's a great group, only limited by the fact we've to go to Russia. We've missed the English and the Belgians and the Serbs.

    Hopefully we're looking at a place in the finals now.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    Groups 3,5,6 are bad, but 7 is an absolute stinker. An absolute stinker.

    In a way it's a pity UEFA limit the scope of the Underage competitions, yet have all and sundry qualify for the Seniors....surely it should be the other way around???
