Sports Mole looks at the Euro 2024 quarter-finals following a dramatic and upset-filled group stage.
Sports Mole

The Euro 2024 group stage has now come to a close, with hosts Germany, holders Italy, Spain, England, France, and Portugal among the nations all booking their spots in the knockout stages of the continental gathering.

The top two team in all six groups have automatically qualified for the last 16, while the four best third-placed outfits have also advanced from the group stage.

Here, Sports Mole takes a look at the final Euro 2024 group standings, which nations have qualified for the knockout rounds, including the best third-placed teams, the confirmed last-16 ties and projected quarter-final matches.


Who qualified from Group A?

Germany, Switzerland

Germany became the first team to qualify for the last 16 of Euro 2024 after following up their thumping 5-1 win over Scotland with a 2-0 victory against Hungary in their second Group A clash on June 19.

Die Mannschaft simply needed to avoid defeat against Switzerland on the final matchday to guarantee their status as group winners, although that was under severe threat by Dan Ndoye's strike before Niclas Fullkrug made himself the hero of the hour in second-half injury time.

As a result, Julian Nagelsmann's men head to the last 16 in first place with their unbeaten record intact - boasting seven points compared to five for Switzerland, who finished two better off than Hungary in third slot.

The Magyars also left it incredibly late to eliminate Scotland via a 1-0 triumph on Sunday, but it was ultimately not enough to claim on of the four best third-placed spots up for grabs, and they along with the Tartan Army have failed to advance from the group stage.


Who qualified from Group B?

Spain, Italy

Spain have progressed to the last 16 with a perfect record, following up a 3-0 victory over Croatia with back-to-back 1-0 successes over Italy and Albania, beating the latter on Monday night courtesy of a first-half strike from Ferran Torres.

Luis de la Fuente's side finish top of the group with a maximum nine points, five clear of second-placed Italy, who scored a dramatic 98th-minute equaliser to rescue a precious point in a 1-1 draw with Croatia to advance automatically to the last 16.

Croatia, meanwhile, finished third with only two points and have failed to qualify for the knockout rounds of a major tournament for the first time since the 2014 World Cup.

As for Albania, they sit at the foot of Group B and have also been knocked out of Euro 2024 after picking up just one point across their three group fixtures.


Who qualified from Group C?

England, Denmark, Slovenia

Thanks to Spain beating Albania in their final Group B fixture, England sealed qualification for the last 16 and were guaranteed to secure at least one of the four best third-placed spots ahead of their final Group C games.

The Three Lions simply needed to avoid defeat against Slovenia and hope that Denmark did not beat Serbia on the final matchday to top the group, two scenarios which came to fruition in drab goalless draws across the board.

However, those results meant that Denmark sneaked through in second and Slovenia were confirmed as one of the best third-placed sides, triggering wild celebrations from their elated players.


Who qualified from Group D?

Austria, France, Netherlands

Just like England, both the Netherlands and France qualified for the last 16 courtesy of Spain's Group B win over Albania, but the two European giants still had top spot to fight for on matchday three.

In a surprise turn of events, though, it was Austria who pipped both sides to the post with a sensational 3-2 beating of the Netherlands, thereby topping the group with six points and forcing the Dutch to accept a third-placed ranking.

Meanwhile, France's 1-1 draw with already-eliminated Poland meant that the 2018 world champions had to settle for second, despite going through the group phase unbeaten.


Who qualified from Group E?

Romania, Belgium, Slovakia

For the first time in European Championship history, all four nations within the same group have finished on the same points, as Group E quartet Romania, Belgium, Slovakia and Ukraine collected four points each from their three games.

Romania have surprised many by securing top spot, finishing just above Belgium in second place, while Slovakia - who played out a 1-1 draw with Romania on matchday three - have also qualified for the last 16 as one of the four best third-placed teams.

As for Ukraine, they became the first nation in Euros history to finish bottom of a group, and subsequently crash out of the tournament, while earning as many as four points, after drawing 0-0 draw with Belgium in their final group game.


Who qualified from Group F?

Portugal, Turkey, Georgia

Portugal entered their final Group F fixture having already secured top spot and subsequently made wholesale changes for their encounter with major tournament debutants Georgia, who deservedly claimed a historic 2-0 victory to finish third and qualify for the last 16.

Both Portugal and Georgia are joined in the knockout rounds by Turkey, who beat Czech Republic 2-1 on matchday three to secure second place and eliminate Jaroslav Silhavy's side from the tournament.


June 29: Switzerland 2-0 Italy (5pm BST | Olympiastadion, Berlin)

June 29: Germany 2-0 Denmark (8pm BST | Westfalenstadion, Dortmund)

June 30: England 2-1 Slovakia (5pm BST | Arena AufSchalke, Gelsenkirchen)

July 2: Romania 0-3 Netherlands (5pm BST | Allianz Arena, Munich)

July 2: Austria 1-2 Turkey (8pm BST | Red Bull Arena, Leipzig)

The first last-16 tie was officially confirmed at the beginning of the week, with Group A runners-up Switzerland to face holders and Group B runners-up Italy in Berlin on Saturday.

Later that evening, hosts Germany - winners of Group A - will do battle with Group C runners-up Denmark, while Sunday's action will begin with Group C winners England taking on Group E's third-placed nation Slovakia in Gelsenkirchen.

After Group B victors Spain meet Georgia, the third-placed team of Group F, France and Belgium, the runners-up of Groups D and E respectively, lock horns in Dusseldorf on Monday, before Group F winners Portugal face off against Group C's third-placed side Slovenia.

The final day of quarter-final action will see Group E winners Romania take on the third-placed side of Group D, the Netherlands, before Group D victors Austria square off against Group F runners-up Turkey in Leipzig.


July 5: Spain vs. Germany (5pm BST | MHPArena, Stuttgart)

July 5: Portugal vs. France (8pm BST | Volksparkstadion, Hamburg)

July 6: England vs. Switzerland (5pm BST | Merkur Spiel-Arena, Dusseldorf)

July 6: Netherlands vs. Turkey (8pm BST | Olympiastadion, Berlin)

Group winners Germany and Spain both avoided upsets to advance from the last-16 stage, resulting in an intriguing quarter-final showdown between the pair of three-time Euros winners.

Portugal have set up an equally enticing quarter-final encounter with France, whom they beat in the Euro 2016 final, after Les Bleus came out on top against Belgium.

England's late show against Slovakia has earned them a last-eight tie against Switzerland, who toppled the defending champions.

Netherlands, meanwhile, will take on Turkey in the last of the quarters in Berlin.
