After a year-long delay, Euro 2020 is finally upon us – 24 teams will compete at this summer's competition with dreams of reaching the Wembley showpiece on Sunday, July 11.

The tournament will kick-off on Friday at Rome's Stadio Olimpico, with Turkey taking on Italy.

It is the second time the European Championship will host 24 nations, after UEFA revamped the system from 16 teams to 24 at Euro 2016.

There will be six groups at the tournament, which is being played at 11 venues around Europe – from London and Rome to Budapest and Baku.

Here, we aim to give you a lowdown on the groups and which one in particular you should keep an eye on.

The best first-placed and second-placed teams will automatically progress into the round of 16, while four of the leading third-placed sides will also advance into the knock-out stages.

Who is in the 'Group of Death'?

All of the groups will be tough to call; England's Group D could throw up a few surprises, as could Wales' Group A which consists of Switzerland, Turkey and Italy.

But the customary 'Group of Death' tag can only go to Group F.

Who do you think will make it out of Group F at Euro 2020? Let us know in the comments section below.

That will host the two previous World Cup winners and the current European Championship title holders in France, Germany and Portugal.

This is by far the toughest group of the lot with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Thomas Muller, Kai Havertz, Paul Pogba, Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema ready to do battle.

Portugal and France are two of the favourites for the competition and the clash between those two sides could be a decisive and mouth-watering encounter.

With Hungary unbeaten in their last nine competitive games, Marco Rossi's well-drilled team should not be written off, either, especially considering they will be playing their games against France and Portugal at their home ground and in front of over 60,000 supporters in Budapest.

Germany will be hosting the rest of the games in this group. The Germans are home in Munich for all three of their fixtures, which puts Portugal and France at a slight disadvantage.

This is expected to be a tight call between who advances. It could also be one of the groups where the third-placed team misses out on advancing to the next round.

Group F will be of particular interest to England, too, because they will face whoever finishes in second in the group if Harry Kane and co finish, as expected, top of their group.
