Graham Shaw’s historic World Cup silver medalists have again been drawn with England, the hosts of their recent hugely successful tournament. 

Although they were narrowly defeated by them in their pool at London 2018, the Green Army went on to record phenomenal results en route to the final.

They face England first at next year’s Europeans, kicking off their campaign on Sunday, 18 August before facing Belarus and Germany later in the week.
