England's UEFA Nations League group-stage fixtures scheduled for Autumn windows

Friday 26 Jun 2020
England, who finished third in the 2019-20 UEFA Nations League, are due to face Belgium, Iceland and Denmark in this year's group stage

England's UEFA Nations League dates with Iceland, Denmark and Belgium have now been confirmed for the autumn international windows.

The Three Lions were drawn with Belgium, Iceland and Denmark in Group A2 when the draw for the 2020-21 Nations League took place in March and will now kick-off their campaign with a double away trip to Iceland and Denmark in September.

They will then host games in October against the Belgians and Danes, before it's back overseas to play Belgium before a home match against Iceland rounds things off in November.

Autumn 2020 international windows

  • 3–8 September
  • 7–14 October
  • 11–18 November
  • England were set to play friendlies against Italy, Denmark, Austria and Romania during the first part of this year, but all four matches did not go ahead because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    And with the remaining EURO 2020 play-offs scheduled during October and November, Gareth Southgate's side could now arrange two additional friendly fixtures on 7/8 October and 11/12 November.

    The previously-confirmed fixture list has now been revised, with England's updated autumn schedule as follows:

    Iceland v England
    5pm BST, Saturday 5 September 

    Denmark v England

    7.45pm BST, Tuesday 8 September

    England v Belgium
    5pm BST, Sunday 11 October

    England v Denmark 
    7.45pm BST, Wednesday 14 October

    Belgium v England
    7.45pm GMT, Sunday 15 November

    England v Iceland
    7.45pm GMT, Wednesday 18 November

    Venues for all six matches are to be confirmed. We will continue to update fans on the possibility of attending England's autumn fixtures in line with the latest guidance from UEFA and the UK Government, which currently only permits sport to take place behind closed doors.
