England and Scotland booked their places at next year’s European Championship in October while Wales’ fate will be decided on November 21.
In group C; they finished their campaign with a draw against North Macedonia after beating Italy in Naples and Ukraine at home, smashing Malta away and hammering North Macedonia at Old Trafford. When qualification restarted in September, however, a lacklustre draw in the return match with Ukraine put a fly in the ointment, but their impressive win over Italy at Wembley sent England through to the finals.
Scotland have qualified for Euro 2024. The Tartan Army won their first five Group A qualifiers including a famous 2-0 win over Spain at Hampden Park in March. Although they controversially lost the return fixture against Spain in October, they are guaranteed at least second place in the group and thus a spot at next year’s tournament. Scotland finished their campaign with a 2-2 away draw against Georgia and an entertaining 3-3 draw with Norway.
A 1-1 draw in Armenia on Saturday means Wales must win against already-qualified Turkey and hope Croatia fail to beat Armenia. Wales have already secured a place in March’s play-offs.
- Wales v Turkey, November 21
Northern Ireland ended their campaign on a high with a 2-0 win over Group H winners Denmark.
Defeats to Finland (twice), Denmark, Slovenia and Kazakhstan (twice) meant Michael O’Neill’s side had no chance of qualification.
The Republic of Ireland
The ROI were handed the hardest challenge of all, with the Netherlands, France, Greece and Gibraltar also in group B. So far, Stephen Kenny’s team have only beaten Gibraltar, twice.
How does qualifying work for Euro 2024?
Germany have qualified automatically for the tournament as hosts and Russia are banned from qualifying following their invasion of Ukraine, leaving 23 other qualifying spots available to play for.
The 53 remaining Uefa members have been divided into ten groups, with seven groups containing five teams and three containing six teams. The winners and runners-up from each group qualify for the tournament.
The three remaining teams will be decided through the play-offs. The 12 teams involved in the play-offs are selected based on their performances in the Nations League. The teams will then play in a semi-final and final for a place in the tournament.

Who will host Euro 2024?
Euro 2024 will be held in Germany, who fended off a bid from Turkey. This is the first time that the country has hosted the tournament since unification. West Germany hosted the tournament in 1988 and four matches of Euro 2020 were played in Munich. It will be the first time that any Euros matches have been held in the former East Germany, with Leipzig as a host city.
The matches will be played across 10 cities: Berlin, Munich, Dortmund, Gelsenkirchen, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Hamburg, Dusseldorf, Cologne and Leipzig.
