Qualification permutations:


Germany: Need a point against Northern Ireland to guarantee qualification. Top spot is very much up for grabs, and if Germany and Poland both win, it will come down to goal difference. If goal difference and goals scored finish identical, it would be decided on fair play record -- at present Poland have five disciplinary points and Germany three. As in other groups, if they cannot be separated on fair play, teams will be split on UEFA national team coefficient ranking (Germany are higher than Poland).

If Germany draw their game, they will finish top unless Poland beat Ukraine. With a defeat, Germany would drop to third if Poland get a point against Ukraine. The same tiebreak scenarios apply if Poland and Germany finish level on points for second and third, with Northern Ireland top.

Poland: Need a point against Ukraine to guarantee second place -- with a draw, Poland could not be overtaken by both Germany and Northern Ireland but could not finish top either. Poland must win to have a chance of finishing top, and would do so if Germany do not win. Poland will be sure of second if they lose to Ukraine and Northern Ireland do not beat Germany. Even if Poland do lose and drop down to third, four points is likely to be enough to reach the round of 16.

Northern Ireland: Must beat Germany to have any chance of a top-two finish, and would then win the group if Poland fail to beat Ukraine. A point against Germany would only see Northern Ireland finish third, but it could be crucial in trying to secure one of the best third-place finishes as it would give them four points.

Ukraine: Are the first team to be eliminated from Euro 2016.

Highest points total possible for third: Four

Lowest points total possible for third: Three


Spain: Have qualified for the round of 16 and need a point against Croatia to take top spot.

Croatia: Need a point against Spain to guarantee second place, but must beat Vicente Del Bosque's team to finish first. Croatia are guaranteed a top-three finish, and would likely go through in third place with four points.

Czech Republic: Must beat Turkey, and also hope Croatia lose to Spain, to be in the top two. Second place would then be decided on goal difference, and if that finishes identically, it moves to fair play. Going into the final game, Croatia are on four disciplinary points and the Czechs on two. As in other instances, four points might be enough to go through regardless. If it goes to UEFA national team coefficient, Croatia are higher than Czech Republic.

Turkey: Must beat Czech Republic and hope three points is enough for a place in the knockout rounds, though their heavy defeat to Spain makes that unlikely.

Highest points total possible for third: Four

Lowest points total possible for third: Two
