12 Nov

The qualification campaign for Euro 2020 has almost come to its conclusion with 17 teams already assured of a place at next summer’s finals tournament.

Nonetheless, there are still some key matches to be played this week as the likes of Wales and Ireland attempt to secure automatic qualification.

England finished top of Group A to book their place at Euro 2020

Euro 2020 qualifying standings (correct as of November 18, 2019)

Group A

England qualified with seven wins from their eight games, with Czech Republic finishing as runners up to also book their place in the finals tournament.

Kosovo and Bulgaria will participate in the play-offs, but Montenegro are out.


Group B

Ukraine are through as group winners with reigning champions Portugal also confirming their place in the finals.

Serbia finished third in Group B so will be in the play-offs.


Group C

The Netherlands followed Germany to Euro 2020 with their draw against Northern Ireland on Saturday.

The result means Northern Ireland must take part in the play-offs, while Belarus and Estonia miss out the finals entirely.


Group D

It’s still all to play for in Group D with Denmark, Switzerland and Ireland fighting for automatic qualification.

Ireland must beat Denmark on Monday to finish in the top two, while the Danes will progress to Euro 2020 with a win or draw. The only way both teams progress is if Switzerland lose to Gibraltar, who have not one a game this qualifying campaign.

The team who finishes third will progress to the play-offs, alongside Georgia.

The loser is assured of a play-off place, and they will be joined there by Slovakia.


Group F

Group G

The group is decided with Poland and Austria securing automatic qualification. North Macedonia and Israel are assured of play-off places due to their Nations League campaigns.


Group H

France and Turkey are through to Euro 2020 as group winners and runners-up respectively. Iceland finished third and will take part in the play-offs.


Group I

There is nothing left to play for in Group I with Belgium and Russia qualifying for the finals. Scotland are assured of a play-off place.

Finland qualified for their first ever major tournament by finishing second in Group J, behind winners Italy. Bosnia and Herzegovina have booked their place in the play-offs already.
