Euro 2024 qualified teams

Germany (host nation)

The Germans didn’t need to participate in the Euro 2024 qualifiers as they were already guaranteed a spot in the final as the hosts of the tournament.

This will be their 14th appearance in the European Championship, with coach Julian Nagelsmann the one tasked to lead the home side to glory.

They have won this event three times, capturing the titles in 1972, 1980, and 1996.

Belgium (Group F)

The Belgians were one of the first teams to secure their place at Euro 2024 following a terrific campaign in Group F.

They qualified for next year’s European Championship after recording five wins and one draw in their first six group matches.

Belgium booked their Euro spot with a 3-2 win over Austria last Friday.

France (Group B)

The Frenchmen put their World Cup disappointment behind them, qualifying for Euro 2024 with relative ease after beating the Netherlands (twice), Greece, the Republic of Ireland (twice), and Gibraltar in their first six group matches.

They have won this tournament twice, capturing the titles in 1984 and 2000.

Portugal (Group J)

Just like France, Portugal crushed the opposition in the group stage, winning all of their eight matches there to secure qualification, per Eurosport.

They have scored 32 goals and allowed just twice during that span to finish top of Group J.

They will be making their ninth European Championship appearance in Germany next year.

Spain (Group A)

Spain bounced back from their 2-0 loss to Scotland last March, winning four group matches in a row to qualify for Euro 2024.

They defeated Georgia (7-1), Cyprus (6-0), Scotland (2-0), and Norway (1-0) to claim a place in next year’s European Championship.

They have won this event thrice, capturing the titles in 1964, 2008, and 2012.

Scotland (Group A)

Scotland will be making their fourth European Championship appearance next year after an impressive qualifying campaign which saw them beat countries such as Spain, Norway, Georgia, and Cyprus in Group A.

They qualified for Euro 2024 after Spain defeated Norway following a Gavi goal in the 49th minute, per the BBC.

Austria (Group F)

Austria qualified for next year’s European Championship after they defeated Azerbaijan 1-0 last Monday, thanks to a goal from Marcel Sabitzer.

They are level on points with Belgium at 16, heading into their final group matches next month.

Turkey (Group D)

The Turkish national team will be heading to Germany next year after they qualified for Euro 2024 last Sunday following their 4-0 win over Latvia.

They currently lead Group D with 16 points after recording five wins, one draw, and one loss in their first seven matches.

The Portuguese star scored a brace versus Bosnia and Herzegovina to take his goal tally this year to 40.

Ronaldo also passed the tally of Haaland, who has scored 39 goals for both club and country in 2023.
