I do hope you are correct Will, although the Mirror say it's the result of a draw??
England are among the top seeds for the Euros qualifying draw in Dublin on December 2 having won their Nations League group, and UEFA have devised the set-up so if Gareth Southgate’s men and Scotland both make it they will be in Group D at the tournament itself.
That means a draw will decide whether they meet at Wembley or Glasgow's Hampden Park in the complex Euro 2020 set-up, where the finals' early stages are to be played in cities across Europe rather than in a host nation or two co-hosts.
I don't think the Mirror have read the nuances of the Euro2020 rulebook It says that "Host association teams are entitled to play a minimum of two group matches at home. If both hosts within one group qualify directly, a draw will decide which team will play three matches at home.". In this context "directly" means as one of the top two in the qualifying group, rather than through the Nations League play-off.
So if Scotland don't qualify as either winners or runners up we can be confident that all three group games will be at Wembley.
This was discussed in a bit more detail in the thread below...
Will, you've clearly done your research so i trust that more than the likes of the Mirror and Sun etc.

Yoav AranI received an email saying I’m on the “Fans first programme” When will these tickets be relseased if I’ve understood it correctly?
According to the UEFA ticketing document, this will be in August - September (The Table on Page 14):
this is tickets that have been allocated but people do not buy before 18th August. I highly doubt there will be any of the cheaper tickets appear, it'll probably just be people who have been allocated a load of Cat 1s and the total cost is more than they can afford
In reply to Daniel Froud:
Daniel FroudMy only predicament is, that I now can't apply through ESTC for either of those rounds/games, which isn't too much of an issue for the QF because the other game would be St Petersburg
The 4 best 3rd place teams from the 6 groups will also progress to the knock out rounds. Regarding the QF, all 4 host cities are possible venues for England, although Rome and St Petersburg are much more likely than Baku or Munich.
Remember that Portugal, who won Euro 2016, qualified from their group in 3rd place.
