I wouldn't be surprised if Denmark and Portugal would meet up yet again.

But if I had to change anything it would be a better distribution of the larger stadiums in all groups, group A and B seems to have them all and group E got no one.
Norway and Montenegro have no stadium allocated for their match so they could get one of the big stadiums.

Ah yes, I didn't notice that, edited now. At the moment the stadiums hold these number of games:
Wembley- 7
Twickenham- 5
Olympic- 5
Emirates- 5
New Spurs- 5
Stamford Bridge- 4
New QPR- 4
New Crystal Palace- 5
The Valley- 4
Craven Cottage- 4
The Den- 4

now I´m just nitpicking but seing that both West Ham´s, QPR, Crystal Palace and Tottenham´s new stadiums are included are Chelsea not working on their own 60.000´ish stadium.

If its located on another site then Stamford Bridge could be kept for this tournament and the same could said about Upton Park Park (Boleyn Ground) both replacing the New New Den and Craven Cottage.

Wake up, dude, this will never happen! 200,000 (or more) fans of the participating 24 countries at the same time in just one city? Even though it's the biggest city in Europe, they couldn't handle this!

Hahaha i'm dreaming! Obviously it's not going to happen, you think the FA look on here?! Despite the fact it will never happen, i still believe that London has a good enough infrastructure to hold the tournament alone. I mean it held the Olympics more than easily, and during the euro's there would only be 2 or 3 games per day, less than an average saturday in London. There are enough hotels and training facilities too. The problems such as seggrigating fans are minor in comparison to some of the problems other euro bids have faced.

You never know, this might just happen. As long as everyone involved benefits, why not.

Doha 2022 is happening apparently. London is six time the size and would have to host 8 fewer teams!

And actually, worth pointing out that the Olympic Park handled nearly 300,000 people on its busiest days last Summer.

London could cope with this; though of course it would never bid and never be awarded it! It's an interesting hypothetical.

I guess a Euro 2020 in London would attract many more fans than a WC in Qatar!
The population in a 1000km-circle around London is (estimated) 200,000,000 ppl , they could reach London by car in a day or in 2hrs by plane!

btw, you can't compare the guests of Olympic Games with football fans:-))
