European Championship Qualifying : Group B Table

17 October 2007 21:47

P W D L F A GD PTS

1 France 11 8 1 2 23 3 20 25

2 Scotland 11 8 0 3 20 10 10 24

3 Italy 10 7 2 1 17 7 10 23

4 Ukraine 10 5 1 4 16 12 4 16

5 Lithuania 10 3 1 6 7 13 -6 10

6 Georgia 11 3 1 7 16 17 -1 10

7 Faroe Islands 11 0 0 11 3 40 -37 0

Key fixtures:

17 Nov: Scotland v Italy (1700 GMT)

21 Nov: Italy v Faroe Islands (1930 GMT)

21 Nov: Ukraine v France (1930 GMT)

The lowdown:

Scotland will qualify if they beat Italy in their final qualification game on Saturday at Hampden Park.

If Scotland lose, they are out.

If Scotland draw, then their hopes rest on Ukraine doing them a favour by beating France in the final set of group matches on 21 November. If they have drawn, a point for France in Ukraine would put Scotland out - barring the mother and father of all shocks in Italy courtesy of the Faroe Islands.

The odds to qualify:

France 1/9 Italy 1/7 Scotland 2/1

HOW ENGLAND CAN QUALIFY

European Championship Qualifying : Group E Table

17 October 2007 20:53

P W D L F A GD PTS

1 Croatia 10 8 2 0 25 4 21 26

2 England 11 7 2 2 22 4 18 23

3 Russia 10 6 3 1 16 5 11 21

4 Israel 10 5 2 3 17 11 6 17

5 FYR Macedonia 10 3 2 5 10 11 -1 11

6 Estonia 11 1 1 9 3 21 -18 4

7 Andorra 10 0 0 10 2 39 -37 0

Key fixtures:

17 Nov: Israel v Russia (1800 GMT)

17 Nov: Macedonia v Croatia (1900 GMT)

21 Nov: England v Croatia (2000 GMT)

21 Nov: Andorra v Russia (2000 GMT)

The lowdown:

England's qualification is out of their hands. Their best hope of qualification is to finish ahead of Russia. But if the Russians win in Israel on Saturday, they will be one point ahead of England with one match to play - and that match is away to rock-bottom Andorra. England will not expect any favours from Andorra, who are on a run of 28 consecutive Euro qualifying defeats.

If Russia lose in Israel, then England need only to draw (or win) against Croatia in their final match at Wembley to guarantee qualification. If Russia draw in Israel, then England will need to beat Croatia in their final match to go through, given that a Russia win against Andorra is all but certain.

There is one other glimmer of hope for England. If Croatia lose in Macedonia, then an England win over the Croats by a three-goal margin will put them above their rivals. A 2-0 win would also be enough, but a two-goal margin in which England have conceded a goal (eg 3-1) will not be enough - as Croatia's away goal will mean they lead the head-to-head standings between the teams. Of course, should Russia have dropped points against Israel then any win over Croatia will suffice.

The odds to qualify:

Croatia 1/100 Russia 4/9 England 13/8

HOW NORTHERN IRELAND CAN QUALIFY

European Championship Qualifying : Group F Table

17 October 2007 21:27

P W D L F A GD PTS

1 Sweden 10 7 2 1 21 5 16 23

2 Spain 10 7 1 2 19 8 11 22

3 Denmark 10 5 2 3 17 9 8 17

4 Northern Ireland 10 5 2 3 15 12 3 17

5 Latvia 10 3 0 7 10 14 -4 9

6 Iceland 11 2 2 7 10 24 -14 8

7 Liechtenstein 11 2 1 8 8 28 -20 7

Key fixtures:

17 Nov: N Ireland v Denmark (1945 GMT)

17 Nov: Spain v Sweden (2100 GMT)

21 Nov: Spain v N Ireland (1900 GMT)

21 Nov: Denmark v Iceland (1900 GMT)

21 Nov: Sweden v Latvia (1900 GMT)

The lowdown:

There are no two ways about it - Northern Ireland's chances are hanging by the slimmest of tiny threads. But there is a route through for them.

First up, they must win both of their remaining matches, at home against Denmark and away to Spain. Anything less and they are out. But two wins will be sufficient, providing Spain have failed to win in their other match at home to Sweden on 17 November.

If Spain beat Sweden, two wins for Northern Ireland will still put them through, but only if Latvia triumph in Sweden in the final qualifying match on 21 November.

The odds to qualify:

Sweden 8/13 Spain 5/4 N Ireland & Denmark No odds available

HOW THE REST CAN QUALIFY

8 Azerbaijan 10 1 2 7 5 25 -20 5

Poland will be guaranteed a spot at the Euro 2008 finals with victory over Belgium, though Portugal, Serbia and Finland could take top spot from them. Finland take on Portugal in their final group game, which could prove the decider.
