After victories against Scotland and Hungary, the German national team is in the round of 16 of the European Championship. What opponents are possible there and in the further course of the tournament? The scenarios.

The German national team has reached the round of 16 of the European Championships early. Six points after the victories against Scotland and Hungary (with a goal difference of 7:1) are enough to finish at least second in Group A, regardless of how the last games turn out. But what’s next for Julian Nagelsmann’s team?

If everything goes as expected, it would be desirable to finish the preliminary round as group winners. The reason: This would allow England to be the opponent in the Round of 16 be avoided. As group winners, the DFB team will face the second-placed team in Group C, in which Denmark, Slovenia and Serbia are battling for places alongside the Three Lions. England should also finish first in the table if things go as planned. So the others remain as possible opponents.

That would be something!
