Italy drew 1-1 in Lithuania to finish a point ahead of of Serbia, who came from behind to win 3-1 in the Republic of Ireland on Friday and then beat Slovenia 3-1 (Slovenia's hopes ended with a loss in Lithuania on Friday). Serbia will be in the play-offs.

Group 3
FYR Macedonia have qualified for a men's UEFA final tournament at any level for the first time after a thrilling final day where both Iceland and France led the group early on.
