After tonight’s Euro qualifying matches, three new participants have emerged from Germany. Slovenia, the Czech Republic, and Italy all made it to the tournament after their respective wins against Kazakhstan, Moldova, and Ukraine.
Slovenia and the Czech Republic finished in third place in their respective groups, while Serbia is currently locked in fourth place. Italy is still waiting for the outcome of the match between Armenia and Croatia to determine their fate.
If Croatia loses to Armenia or draws with them, Italy can earn a spot in the third “hat” if Wales defeats Turkey or if they draw with them. However, if Croatia beats Armenia or draws with them, Italy will remain in their current position. Regardless of the outcome of this matchup, Italy and Croatia cannot end up in the same “hat,” meaning they will at least be grouped together at the Euros.
The results of tonight’s matches also confirmed that England will be placed in first place in one of the groups, with Albania and Denmark taking second place. The Netherlands were also assigned to a third group as well. Finland has been placed on “Path A” alongside Ukraine and Iceland after one of them loses to Croatia or draws with them. If Wales manages to qualify ahead of Croatia, they will play Estonia while Poland will move down a spot to face either Finland, Ukraine or Iceland in a playoff matchup (projected as Path B-Put C).
