Olympic play-off dates set

Denmark will stage the first leg of their 2008 Olympic Games play-off in Viborg on 8 November, with the tie concluding in Sweden 20 days later.

Denmark's play-off against Sweden to decide Europe's third representatives at the 2008 Olympic women's football tournament will get under way in Viborg on 8 November.

Positions decided
Germany and Norway booked returns to China with their runs at the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup but England are ineligible for the Olympic tournament due to the nation competing as Great Britain. Consequently Sweden and Denmark, who were eliminated in the group stage, will meet home and away to claim the vacant position. The Danes stage the first leg (kick-off 19.00CET) with the tie concluding in Sweden on 28 November. The venue is yet to be annnounced.
