Qualification permutations:


Italy: Have qualified for the round of 16 as group winners as they hold the head-to-head over Belgium.

Belgium: Need a point against Sweden to secure second place.

Sweden: Must beat Belgium to go through, no other result can send them through. If they win they can finish no lower than third, and four points is guaranteed to be good enough for one of the four best third-placed berths. There is the outside chance that Ireland could overtake them on goal difference for second if both win.

Ireland: Are guaranteed to qualify if they beat group leaders Italy, either in third on goal difference with Sweden or as one of the best third placed teams. No other result will be good enough. If both Sweden and Ireland win, the Irish would have to beat Italy by at least two more goals than Belgium win to go ahead on goal difference for second. If goal difference and goals scored finished identical it would go to fair play -- Ireland currently have three disciplinary points and Sweden two. If it goes to UEFA national team coefficient, Sweden are higher than Ireland.

Highest points total possible for third: Four

Lowest points total possible for third: One


Hungary: Have qualified as they are guaranteed to be one of the best third-placed teams at the very least. They need a point against Portugal to secure a top-two finish, but must win to guarantee top spot.

They will also finish top with a draw if Iceland do not beat Austria by at least two goals. There is the chance that Hungary and Iceland will end with identical records for first, if so the fair play position sees Iceland on five disciplinary points and Hungary on four. If it goes to UEFA national team coefficient, Hungary are higher than Iceland.

If they lose to Portugal and Iceland beat Austria, they will go through in third.

Iceland: Need a point to secure a top-three finish, and that would guarantee their place in the round of 16.

They must beat Austria to be sure of being in the top two. A point would also be enough for second place if Hungary beat Portugal.

Iceland and Portugal are currently level on two points, with Iceland second on goals scored (2-2 vs. 1-1), so if both nations draw it would first be decided on goals scored and could go to fairplay record if both nations end up with identical scoring records in the group. At present, Iceland have five disciplinary points and Portugal just two. If it goes to UEFA national team coefficient, Portugal are higher than Iceland.

A point would guarantee progress in third as Iceland would finished with zero goal difference and the two worst third-placed teams are on -2 goal difference.

Portugal: Must beat Hungary to be certain of going through, and that would be as group winners if Iceland do not beat Austria or if Iceland win by a smaller margin. The above scenarios for separating Portugal and Iceland with two draws (for second and third) would also apply if both win for the right to be group winners and runners-up.

As with Iceland, a draw will guarantee a top-three finish and a place in the round of 16 as they too would have three points and a zero goal difference.

Austria: Are now guaranteed to qualify if they beat Iceland, though that will only be good enough for the top two if Portugal do not beat Hungary. A Portuguese win means Austria can finish no higher than third, though if Austria win then four points would guarantee a best third-placed berth.

Highest points total possible for third: Four

Lowest points total possible for third: Two
