World champions Spain will start their campaign for a third successive European Championship in a group with Ukraine, Slovakia, Belarus, Macedonia and Luxembourg, meaning an emotional trip back to Kiev for Vicente del Bosque's team who lifted the trophy there in 2012 .With 24 teams taking part in the 2016 finals in France, the draw no longer offers the daunting barrier it once did for the middle-ranking countries.France qualify automatically as hosts and 23 of UEFA's 54 member nations will qualify alongside them with the top two teams from each group assured of going through as well as the best third-placed finishers among the nine groups. Gibraltar were originally drawn in the same group as Spain but moved to another one because of political tensions between the two countries.
