The 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Championship comprises a qualifying group stage and play-off round to determine which seven teams join hosts Israel in the final tournament.
Qualifying group stage
Teams are split into ten groups – two of six teams and eight of five – and play each other on a home and away basis. The ten group winners and four runners-up with the best record against the teams first, third, fourth and fifth in their sections advance to the play-offs.
Play-off matches are played according to the knockout system, with each team playing each opponent home and away. The team which scores the greater aggregate of goals qualifies for the next round, with away goals, extra time and then penalties used to determine the winner in the event of a draw.
The final tournament comprises the seven play-off winners and Israel, who qualify automatically as hosts. The eight teams are split into two groups of four. Each team plays each other once in their group with the winners and runners-up advancing to the semi-finals where the winner of Group A plays the Group B runner-up and vice-versa. The winners advance to the final.
Further details, including the criteria for separating teams that finish level on points in a group, can be found in the official competition regulations.
Cavid Imamverdiyev struck a 91st-minute winner as Azerbaijan came from behind to seal a victory that moves them clear of bottom placed Iceland in Group 8.
Imamverdiyev capitalised on a moment of hesitancy by Hordur Björgvin Magnússon, dispossessing the centre-back and firing in. It completed a stirring comeback by the visitors in Reykjavik, who fell behind midway through the first half when the lively Björn Sigurdarsson headed in. Mirhüseyin Seyidov had a penalty saved by Árni Ólafsson soon after, but Azerbaijan restored parity 13 minutes from time through Araz Abdullayev's long-range effort. The stage was set for Imamverdiyev.
