Germany is preparing to become a second seed in the draw for 2020 euros this evening after the UEFA Nations League group stage ends.
The Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland will be the third seeds as expected.
In the draw, four teams in the final of the League of Nations, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Portugal will be placed in a separate pot and drawn into only five sets of A-D Groups.
In the rest of the groups, each team will have six teams with one team. Ireland would play a game if it didn't automatically qualify, but it depends on how many teams from Pot 4 and Pot 5 are qualified. Each group is going to the first two main tournaments.
