Home nations await Euro 2012 draw
Euro 2012 qualifying draw
Venue: Palace of Culture and Science, Warsaw Date: Sunday, 7 February Start: 1100 GMT Coverage: BBC 5 live & BBC Sport website
Three of the four home nations could face each other
England and Wales and either Scotland or Northern Ireland could be placed in the same group after Sunday's Euro 2012 qualifying draw in Warsaw at 1100 GMT. England are in pot one with the top seeds, Wales are in pot four, Scotland and Northern Ireland are in pot three.
Three groups will have a team from each of the first five pots. Six more groups will also have a team from pot six.
Holders Spain and Italy are also among the top seeds, as 51 teams battle to reach the finals in Poland and Ukraine.
There are 14 places available alongside co-hosts Poland and Ukraine for the tournament, which runs between 8 June to 1 July.
The road to the finals kicks off in September.
Each team in the qualifying groups will play one another on a home and away basis, with matches taking place up to October 2011.
The nine group winners will automatically qualify for the tournament together with the runner-up with the best overall record against the teams finishing first, third, fourth, fifth and sixth in their group.
The eight other runners-up will then face play-offs over two legs in November 2011.
Who do you want in the draw?
England find themselves in pot one alongside reigning European champions Spain, who won the title for the second time thanks to David Villa's sole strike in the 2008 final against Germany.
Fabio Capello has transformed English fortunes, guiding the team to this summer's World Cup finals with nine wins out of 10.
Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Portugal and France are also top seeds along with Russia and Croatia, who failed to book their places in South Africa.
After failing to qualify for a major tournament since France 98, Scotland will be hoping their luck will change under George Burley's successor Craig Levein.
Burley's reign came to an end following a 3-0 friendly defeat at the hands of potential group opponents Wales in Cardiff in November.
The Republic of Ireland are also in pot three and need their fortunes to change after suffering World Cup qualification heartbreak thanks to Thierry Henry's controversial 'handball' goal in the second leg of their play-off in Paris.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the former Soviet Union's triumph in the inaugural European Championship and this will be the main theme of the draw at Warsaw's Palace of Culture and Science.
While Poland's preparations are thought to be on schedule, there are doubts over Ukraine's ability to get their infrastructure properly in place, with less than two-and-a-half years to go.
Poland and Ukraine will be only the third co-hosts of the European Championship, following in the footsteps of Belgium and the Netherlands in 2000 and Austria and Switzerland in 2008.
