Both nations were present in the UEFA Euro 2016 in France, and both qualified up to the Round of 16 before being eliminated
Switzerland and the Republic of Ireland have one objective in their mind and is to qualify again for the UEFA Euro.
The last time these two teams played there was in 2016 in France, where they reached the Round of 16 before falling against Poland and the hosts, respectively.
Now they have been drawn into Group D of the Euro 2020 qualifying tournament.
They are joined by Denmark, who missed the last competition and Georgia and Gibraltar, two nations that have yet to participate in any Euro.
Of these five teams, only the Swiss, Danish and Georgian are guaranteed a spot in the Playoffs in case they don’t qualify via this tournament.
Matches start in March 2019 and end on November of the same year.
