Four teams in Group E of the Euro qualifiers took part of the 2016 tournament and want to qualify once again

Croatia, Wales, Slovakia, and Hungary were all part of the Euro 2016 in France and had very different results.

The Croatian went all the way to the Round of 16 only to lose 1-0 against Portugal after extra time.

But this year they have been superb, reaching the FIFA World Cup Final for the first time, with player Luka Modric the favorite to win it all in 2018.

Wales was participating for the first time and surprised the world by going all the way to the Semifinals, only to lose to the eventual champions, the Portuguese.

Meanwhile, Slovakia made its debut to reach the Round of 16, only to lose 3-0 against Germany.

And Hungary qualified to the same round too, only to being trashed 4-0 by Belgium.

And now, they are all part of Group E of the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying tournament together with Azerbaijan, who has yet to qualify to the European competition.

Matches will start in March 2019 and will be played up to November of the same year.
