With 21 of the 24 teams already booking their place in the tournament, Sports Brief explores who could take the remaining three spots and what each group would look like when that happens.

Which teams are in the play-offs?

Six teams are still in the running for the remaining three places at Euro 2024, including a side that has never qualified for it before.

Georgia will look to make history by qualifying for a European Championship for the first time but will have to get past Greece to do so.

The Greeks surprised many when they won the tournament in 2004 and will be looking to enjoy another deep run in the competition twenty years later. The two sides will meet in play-off C.

In play-off A, two giants of European football will meet when Wales take on Poland. Wales beat Finland 4-1 to book their place in this fixture, while Poland won 5-1 to earn their spot.

In play-off B, Iceland and Ukraine will battle it out for a spot in the tournament. The game will be contested in Poland due to Russia’s continued illegal invasion of Ukraine.
