France have booked their place at Euro 2012 as winners of Group D after Samir Nasri's penalty earned them a 1-1 home draw with Bosnia-Hercegovina.

Edin Dzeko had given the visitors hope of pipping France to top spot in the group, but Nasri's goal means they will have to settle for the play-offs.

Denmark, Greece, Russia and best runners-up Sweden claimed the other remaining automatic spots.

Both Portugal and Turkey were forced to settle for a play-off place.

Portugal had held top spot in Group H, but a 2-1 defeat by Denmark, for whom Michael Krohn-Delhi and Nicklas Bendtner scored, in Copenhagen consigned them to second place.

Turkey's 1-0 win over Azerbaijan meant they pipped Belgium to second spot in Group A after the Belgians lost 3-1 in Germany.

Scotland's 3-1 defeat in Spain, coupled with the Czech Republic's 4-1 win in Lithuania ended the former's hopes and saw the Czechs take the play-off place from Group I, while Greece's 2-1 win in Georgia meant Croatia finished second in Group F.

The draw for the play-offs will take place on Thursday 13 October, with the first-leg matches scheduled for 11 or 12 November and the second leg on 15 November.

Russia began the day needing only a point to ensure automatic qualification, but took all three courtesy of a comfortable 6-0 win over Andorra in Group B, a result which ensured that the Republic of Ireland go into the play-offs despite beating Armenia 2-1.

Sweden secured the final automatic place, as the best runners-up, thanks to their 3-2 win over Netherlands, which bought an end to the Dutch's 100% record.
