The match schedule for the qualifying group stage of UEFA EURO 2012 is complete after a draw at the XXXIV Ordinary UEFA Congress in Tel Aviv determined the fixture list for four previously undecided sections.
Agreement had not been reached over the fixtures for Group B (Russia, Slovakia, Republic of Ireland, FYR Macedonia, Armenia and Andorra), Group F (Croatia, Greece, Israel, Latvia, Georgia and Malta), Group G (England, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Wales and Montenegro) and Group H (Portugal, Denmark, Norway, Cyprus and Iceland) by the deadline of Tuesday 16 March, so the games were arranged by Thursday's draw.
Among the interesting dates to look out for, Group H rivals Portugal and Denmark, who also met in 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying and who both go to South Africa, will renew acquaintances on Portuguese soil on 8 October, with the return fixture being the final match in the section on 11 October 2011. In Group G the British derby between England and Wales will take place on 26 March 2011 in Wales, with the return date on 6 September 2011.
