The Orange team will have Georgia or North Macedonia as an opponent at the European Championship

The Dutch national team has gained more clarity about its last group mate at next year’s European Championship. Georgia and North Macedonia will compete for the ticket to group C at the final tournament on November 12. Romania fell after a 2-1 loss to Iceland.

The Romanians should have won the play-offs of Division A in the Nations League to be assigned to the Orange, but it already went wrong in the semi-final. Gylfi Sigurdsson scored twice before half time for Iceland. Alexandru Maxim used a penalty after the break.

Iceland now meets Hungary in the final battle for a European Championship ticket in Division A, which, thanks to Willi Orban, Zsolt Kalmar and Nemanja Nikolic, took the longest against Bulgaria with 3-1.

Poulmate Orange

In Division D, Georgia and North Macedonia will therefore mutually decide who will qualify for a European Championship final round for the first time in history. The Georgians beat Belarus (1-0), while North Macedonia was too strong for Kosovo (2-1).

The winner of the meeting will be classified in group C at the European championship with the Dutch national team, Ukraine and Austria.

Penalty shootings

Serbia, which eliminated home-playing Norway 2-1 after extra time, and Scotland, which eliminated Israel after penalties (due to a miss by PSV player Eran Zahavi), compete in Division C for a ticket to the European Championship.

In Division B, penalties had to offer a solution in both duels. Slovakia was stronger than Ireland in the series (4-2) and Northern Ireland kept its nerves under control better when visiting Bosnia and Herzegovina (4-3).

All finals will be completed on November 12.
