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.
Scotland moved top of Group 10 after a thrilling 2-2 draw away to Bulgaria but will wonder what might have been after conceding a 93rd-minute equaliser in Lovech.
Georgi Milanov gave the hosts a first-half lead only for two goals from Jordan Rhodes, his second in the 90th minute, to seemingly prise a victory for Scotland. There was a further twist, though, as Georgi Kostadinov restored parity in the dying seconds.
Billy Stark's team trailed the Netherlands by a point after five matches but knew a draw in Lovech would see them overtake them via their head-to-head record, while Bulgaria began proceedings a point adrift of their opponents.
Both sides failed to take early chances before Mihail Madanski's men broke through, Milanov exchanging passes with Aleksandar Tsvetkov before firing a powerful low shot past Mark Ridgers.
In the second half, Scotland came back strongly but had to wait until the 69th minute for the equaliser when Rhodes rose highest to head in after a quickly taken corner and cross from Gary Steven.
Another instinctive finish from Rhodes, his eighth in six group games, appeared to be decisive as the game headed into added time, only for Tsvetkov's last-gasp cross to reach substitute Kostadinov for a dramatic finale.
