The team of Portugal was inserted in group B and starts the qualification in March of next year.
The Portuguese national team was on Sunday to face Ukraine, Serbia, Lithuania and Luxembourg on their way to the European Championship of 2020, which will take place throughout 12 cities on the Old Continent.
The men of Fernando Santos were drawn in group B, where they are only five teams, instead of six, because of the status of the finalist of the League of Nations. The same applies to England, Holland and Switzerland.
Ukraine and Serbia are the big ‘headaches’ of this group. However, the European champions are already aware that if they can not qualify directly for the competition, they have a guaranteed place in the play-off, having reached the final four of the youngest UEFA competition.
The walk to the Euro’2020 starts on March 21 next year and lasts until November 19
