Which of the bigger nations have failed to qualify?

Norway’s wait for a first major tournament since 2000 continues after they finished behind Spain and Scotland in Group A, while Sweden are another casualty, as they failed to qualify for a European Championship for the first time since 1996.

There’s no place for North Macedonia, who were in the tournament for the first time in 2020, while Russia will also be missing from the teams that played in that tournament because of their suspension from Uefa competitions after their invasion of Ukraine.

Finland and Ukraine also qualified for Euro 2020 but their involvement will depend on their success in the play-offs.

Who was the top scorer in Euro 2024 qualifying?

Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku is top of the pile when it comes to qualifying goals with 14. Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo is next best on 10, while France’s Kylian Mbappe scored nine times.

England captain Harry Kane found the net on eight occasions, while Manchester United duo Rasmus Hojlund of Denmark and Scotland’s Scott McTominay rounded off the top five with seven each.

Who are the form teams?

Six teams were unbeaten during qualifying, but Portugal were the only side to win all of their matches.

Portugal head coach Roberto Martinez saw his side scored 36 goals and concede just twice in their 10 wins as they look to win the European Championship for a second time.

After finishing as runners-up at last year’s World Cup, France won their first seven games in qualifying, but were held to a 2-2 draw by Greece in their final game.

The other unbeaten sides were England, Belgium, Hungary and Romania.

Spain also won their final six games in qualifying to ensure they finished above Scotland at the top of Group A.
