Portugal and Spain did not tremble this Sunday during the 10th and final day of the Euro 2024 qualifiers, winning respectively against Iceland (2-0) and Georgia (3-1) . The Selecao took the opportunity to achieve a full success with ten victories in as many matches within Group J, while Spain secured its first place ahead of Scotland, held by Norway (3-3), in the group A, and will be seeded in the Euro draw on December 2, 2023 at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Germany. Remember that the European Championship will take place in Germany from June 14 to July 14, 2024.
If the evening is marred by the serious injury of Gavi, who was injured in the knee (26th), Spain can take a breather after having secured first place in the group A standings. La Roja, who won an eighth consecutive victory in all competitions , saw the naturalized French defender, Robin Le Normand, score his first goal for the selection (4th). The inevitable Kvaratskhelia equalized (10th), but the broad Spanish domination materialized on the scoreboard by Ferran Torres (55th) and a CSC from Lochoshvili (72nd). In the same group, Scotland celebrated its qualification for a second consecutive final phase at the European Championship with a draw against Norway (3-3), deprived of Erling Haaland.
In Group J, Portugal achieved the feat of winning its ten matches in the Euro 2024 qualifiers, a first in its history, by quietly overcoming Iceland (2-0) thanks to goals from Bruno Fernandes (37th) and de Horta (66th). Already qualified since last month, the Seleção also added a ninth “clean sheet” and is making a big impression under the leadership of Roberto Martinez, its new coach. The Icelanders will have to go through the play-offs in the spring to hope to see the final phase. Already qualified, Slovakia beat Bosnia (3-1). Finally, in the last meeting, Liechtenstein ended its disastrous campaign by conceding a tenth defeat, against Luxembourg (0-1) on a header from Rodrigues (69th). Luxembourg, for its part, will see the play-offs to try to qualify for its first Euro.
