Euor 2024: Spain, Scotland and Turkey qualified for the final phase

Spain, Scotland and Turkey won their ticket for the Euro football tournament on Sunday evening October 15, which will be played from June 14 to July 14, 2024 in Germany. The trio joins the organizing country as well as France, Belgium and Portugal, who are also guaranteed to be on the trip.

By winning (1-0) in Norway, Spain was guaranteed to finish in one of the first two places in Group A. Scotland, which was not playing, also benefited.

Memorable week for Turkish football

In group D, Turkey obtained its ticket to Germany by dominating Latvia (4-0). The success was large but it was slow to emerge, with right winger Yunus Akgun only unlocking the counter on the hour mark, before the score swelled.

This qualification completes a memorable week for Turkish football, which was designated to jointly organize Euro 2032 with Italy.

In the other Group D match played on Sunday, Wales, winner (2-1) of Croatia in Cardiff, is now master of its destiny before the last two elimination matches, in November.

Croatia, semi-finalist of the World Cup in Qatar in 2022, has a second defeat in a row and finds itself in danger. She has not missed a major international competition since the 2010 World Cup.

A flawless performance for the Blues

France qualified on Friday October 13, after its victory (2-1) against the Netherlands thanks to a double from Kylian Mbappé, who, on this occasion, overtook Michel Platini in the ranking of top scorers in the selection. The Blues are first in their group, with six wins out of six matches played in these qualifiers.

The match between Kosovo and Israel, initially scheduled for Sunday, was postponed by UEFA due to the inability of the Israeli team to travel after the attack launched against the country by the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas on Saturday 7 october.
