Kazakhstan sent Moldova down to League D of the UEFA Nations League after a penalty shoot-out in Nur-Sultan, while ten-man Cyprus eliminated Estonia in the other play-out decider.
What are the play-outs?
As League C has four groups while League D has only two, the two League C teams relegated are determined by two-legged play-outs. The Faroe Islands and Gibraltar have already been promoted from League D to League C.
The play-out fixtures were determined by the overall ranking of the four teams finishing bottom of their League C groups. The first-ranked team (Kazakhstan) played the fourth-ranked team (Moldova) while second (Cyprus) played third (Estonia). The teams ranked first and second played the second legs at home.
