Group 1
Iceland and Scotland qualified on Friday, confirmed as at least one of the best runners-up after Finland lost to Portugal in Group 2. Iceland, yet to drop a point of concede a goal, need only avoid a four-goal defeat at home to Scotland on Tuesday to win the group.

Group 2
Spain have qualified, winning the group by beating Montenegro 13-0 on Thursday. The next day Portugal came back from two down to beat Finland 3-2 and move to within three points of second place. With Portugal having a better head-to-head, they would finish second and earn at least a debut play-off if they win in the Republic of Ireland and Finland lose in Spain on Tuesday. Points for Finland could well mean automatic qualification and if Portugal win, they might reach the finals without a play-off if Romania and Russia lose.

Group 3
France, already qualified, drew 1-1 with Brazil in a friendly on Friday and then face Albania in their last group match on Tuesday, the first games under under their new coach Olivier Echouafni. Romania have clinched at least a first-ever play-off thanks to a 2-1 victory against Ukraine on Thursday. Romania welcome Greece on Tuesday hoping a win could give them a chance of automatic qualification.

Group 4
Sweden, fresh from claiming Olympic silver, clinched their finals place on Thursday by beating Slovakia 2-1 to win the group with seven perfect wins. Fellow 2013 semi-finalists Denmark will finish second and know a point against Sweden next Tuesday would definitely mean avoiding the play-offs (they can afford to lose if two of Finland, Russia and Romania fail to win).

Group 5
Holders and Olympic gold-medallists Germany have qualified without dropping a point or conceding a goal and won 4-0 in Russia on Friday their first outing under new coach Steffi Jones. Russia, confirmed in second, must get something against Croatia on Tuesday to have a chance of qualifying automatically.

Group 7
England
had qualified before these fixtures and Belgium have earned a debut finals after beating Serbia 3-1 on Thursday and seeing Finland lose on Friday. Belgium will overtake England with a win when the unbeaten duo play on Tuesday.
