The German national team coached by Joachim Löw have drawn Turkey, the team they beat 3-2 in the semi-final at Euro 2008, for their Euro 2012 qualification campaign. The other opponents are 1980 European Championships finalists Belgium, neighbours Austria plus Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan in Group A. The qualifiers are set to begin this September and finish in November 2011.

Fabio Capello’s England will face old rivals Wales. England have drawn John Toshack’s Wales side in Group G as well as Montenegro, Bulgaria and Switzerland for a place at Euro 2012.

Euro 2008 winners Spain, who beat Germany 1-0 to claim the Henri Delauney trophy in Vienna on June 29, 2008, face arguably their biggest test against the Czech Republic as well as Scotland, Lithuania and Liechtenstein in Group I.

Current World Cup holders Italy, who had a poor Euro 2008 campaign by their own standards, have drawn World Cup qualifiers Serbia, as well as Slovenia, Estonia, the Faroe Islands and Northern Ireland in Group C.

World Cup runners-up France, who had drawn the Republic of Ireland in Saturday’s practice draw, are up against Romania, Belarus, Albania, Luxembourg and Bosnia-Herzegovina in Group D.
