Yes, somewhat easier, it was already after the last round. After Wales are still the last Team on the European championship qualifiers solved the Ticket to the final round, are all the pots and the group heads for the anniversary tournament (60-year anniversary of EM) in the coming summer, clear. Because the hosts in each group were allocated, and Russia is not allowed to play due to Uefa rules against the Ukraine, the group B is nearly complete. Only the Team from pot 4 needs to be assigned. This is completed only after the Nations-League-Playoff – but more on that later.

Important from the Swiss perspective: The possible venues were reduced at least by a third. Of the twelve host cities, eight are possible for Switzerland, because they can be classified neither in group B nor C. Why? The courts of the pot 2 have already been awarded to host (Russia and Holland). Thus, St. Petersburg, Copenhagen (group B), Amsterdam and Bucharest (group C) fall away. Rome, Baku (group A), London, Glasgow (group D), Bilbao, Dublin (group E), Munich, and Budapest (group F) remain:.
One of the opponents i.e. Italy, England, Spain or Germany – rank 1, is this ever anything other than a self-runner. The draw will take place on Saturday, 30. Of November, 18 p.m. in Bucharest instead.
the last Teams
to qualify the opponents from the Nations-League-Playoff: Stay here, Too, much, but not all of it definitely is. Complicated it is, for example, in the case of way a. Only Iceland has not played from the highest Division to the EM, therefore, three Teams to back. And although the Los will decide which three from Bulgaria, Israel, Hungary, and Romania it. The drawn Team is allowed to play on the third Division a finals. The four-way look like this:
A: , Iceland, Bulgaria/Israel/Hungary/Romania*
B: , Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovakia, Ireland, North Ireland
C: , Scotland, Norway, Serbia, Bulgaria/Israel/Hungary/Romania*
D: , Georgia, North of Macedonia, Kosovo, Belarus
Every path is a kind of mini-tournament that will be held in March with semi-finals and Final (one game). The four final winners will qualify for the European championship.
Depending on the draw, you are likely to hope the Uefa, that it is not a "bad" Team to use its last Chance. For Example, Kosovo. Because it is precisely in this case, it could be that this groups is so complete that you fail to comply with the Uefa requirements. And then? Yes then these groups would have to be drawn new. Congratulations for your birthday, EM!
