  1. Au revoir!

    These Welsh lads are going...


    So are these English fellas...


    And this Northern Irish bloke...

    Northern Ireland

    Heard the one about the Englishmen, the Welshmen and the Irishmen? They are all going to be taking part in the same international tournament next summer. No joke... Au revoir!

  3. Can Wales win the Euros?

    Wales 2-0 Andorra

    Robbie Savage

    BBC Radio 5 live at the Cardiff City Stadium

    "Going into a European Championship is unknown territory for Wales, but if they get a good draw, why can’t they do well? Germany were beaten by the Republic of Ireland, Spain are not the Spain of old. 

    "This Wales team will go there with confidence. I believe defensively they are very good, and with Joe Allen, Aaron Ramsey, and a superstar like Gareth Bale in the side, you’ll have a chance in any game you play in."

    "I think we're going in to the finals as the unknown - and that could help us. No-one gave us a chance to finish second, no-one thought we would take four points from Belgium.

    "We'll just go in, we're very humble, we know what our strengths are. We will cause problems with the players - and the pace of Gareth Bale - that we have. And the fact we are pretty much an unknown will help us next summer."

  5. Player reaction

    Wales 2-0 Andorra

    Wales skipper Ashley Williams hails the leadership of manager Chris Coleman as the pair celebrate reaching the Euro 2016 finals.

    "He simplifies everything for us," says the Swansea defender. "Every time we step onto field we are right up for it. We always try to perform for him, we are disappointed for him when we lose."

    Excellent question - arguably without a simple answer. But of the nine qualifying groups, eight comprised six teams and one only five.

    So when the points are tallied up for the teams in third, all of the nations in a group with six teams have the points taken away from them that they picked up against the side that finished bottom.


  7. And who has made the play-offs?

    Eight teams face a nervy two-legged decider to see if they can nab 

    one of the four spots available through the play-offs:

    Republic of Ireland, Bosnia, Ukraine, Slovenia, Hungary, Sweden, Norway, Denmark.

    The draw for the two-legged play-offs will be held on Sunday, with the matches taking place next month.

  8. Who has qualified?

    So to recap then: 

    Here are the 19 teams who have secured automatic qualification and will be joining hosts France at next summer's Euro 2016: 

    Czech Republic, Iceland, Turkey, Belgium, Wales, Spain, Slovakia, Germany, Poland, England, Switzerland, Northern Ireland, Romania, Austria, Russia, Italy, Croatia, Portugal, Albania. 

  9. Around Europe

    So that's the Euro 2016 group stage done and dusted. England, Wales and Northern Ireland are there, the Netherlands are staying at home, and the Republic of Ireland are still in limber over their summer plans. Let's have a recap...

Chris Coleman and his army of coaching staff pose for their own pictures a few yards away.

    The full-time whistle has gone, but no-one is leaving the Cardiff City Stadium to secure an early exit from the car park or dash for the last train. The Wales supporters have been promised a party, and have been teased about some mystery post-match celebrations.

    Wales win another corner - their 13th of the match - as the camera pans onto a dad and lad who are wearing French-themed fancy dress. The corner is cleared by Andorra. No-one cares. The 30,00-plus Welsh fans bust the Cardiff City Stadium's decibel meter with another ear-splitting chorus of the Welsh national anthem.

  22. The Netherlands fail to qualify

    Netherlands 2-3 Czech Republic

    It is all over - we won't be seeing theNetherlands at Euro 2016. 

    Defeat at home to Czech Republic has sealed it, although even if they'd won Turkey's 1-0 victory over Iceland would have made it impossible for them to climb above fourth in Group A. 

    That win means Fatih Terim's side go to France automatically, as the best third-placed team.

    A summer without all that orange...

    Netherlands fail to qualify
  23. Croatia reach Euros

    Croatia defeated Malta 1-0 and Italy came from behind to defeat Norway 2-1. The upshot of this is that Croatia claimed second place in Group H and can look forward to next summer.

    Gareth Bale makes sure that Wales will finish a victorious campaign with a win (as if it was in any doubt anyway). The Real Madrid forward scuffs in a left-foot shot when Ben Davies' low cross fall at his feet inside the Andorra area.

  28. Turkey score

    All over for the Netherlands surely? Turkey now lead 1-0 against Iceland - thanks to a free-kick from Selcuk Inan - and will finish third, claiming a qualification place as the highest ranked third placed finisher as it stands.

  29. Post update

    Wales 1-0 Andorra

    Young Wales forward Tom Lawrence has been a livewire since he came on at the break, neatly linking up with his team-mates and not being afraid of running at the Andorra defence. He fancies his chances from distance, only for Ferran Pol to gather.

    Is the comeback really on? 

    Robin van Persie stabs one home but the Dutch need to win - and for Iceland to beat Turkey - if they are to finish in third and earn a play-off place. 

    And moments later van Persie is booked for a dive in the box when a penalty looked likelier...

    It's Van Persie's 50th international goal but as it stands the Dutch are out whatever happens - Turkey and Iceland are drawing.

Sonejee hugs a few of his defensive colleagues, then the ref and entire Andorran bench. He's probably glad to retire from national service because he's sick of losing...

    Credit to Andorra, they are not showing any signs of rolling over yet. But equally they are showing no signs of claiming their first competitive away win in 46 attempts. Max Llovera perfectly times a sliding challenge in his penalty area to dispossess Jonny Williams.

  43. Second spot for Wales?

    Elsewhere in Group B, Belgium have taken the lead against Israel - Napoli's Dries Mertens on the scoresheet.

    This means that as it stands Belgium will top the group with Wales second.

    With the score still 0-0 between Turkey and Iceland, even a three-goal comeback wouldn't be enough for the Netherlands to secure a play-off place and third in Group A as it stands.

    Italy have not lost a competitive home game this century but is that record about to end? The Azzurri trail 1-0 to Norway in Group H thanks to a goal by Norwich City's Alexander Tettey. Defeat for Italy will cost them top spot in the group. 

    There's an almighty battle developing for a play-off spot in Wales's group. Bosnia-Herzegovina started the day third on 14 points, with Israel fourth on 13 and Cyprus fifth on 12. Bosnia took the lead in Cyprus before falling 2-1 behind. The half-time score is 2-2. Meanwhile, Israel are holding Belgium to a goalless draw in Brussels.

The lanky Burnley striker heads goalwards, but Andorra defender Ildefons Lima is underneath it to nod off the goal-line.

  89. Netherlands 0-1 Czech Republic

    Pavel Kaderabek (24 mins)

    Are we heading for a summer tournament without the Dutch? 

    It is certainly looking that way - the Czech Republic have taken the lead in Amsterdam in a must-win match for the Dutch. 

    Pavel Kaderabek is played through on goal, it's a tight angle but the right-back smashes past Jeroen Zoet at his near post.

    We say it's a  must-win game, but if Turkey can draw at home to Iceland, the Netherlands are out anyway. It's currently 0-0 in Konya.

    "I think we'll see Dave Edwards come in to play where Jonathan Williams started the game, alongside Aaron Ramsey in midfield, and we'll see Williams pushed further up."

    The Wales physio makes that universal signal of "his game is over" by quickly revolving his hands towards the bench. Wolves midfielder Dave Edwards is the man who gets stripped off to replace him after Wales, eventually jogging on after his team momentarily go down to 10 men.

    Now there is an injury concern for Wales. Hal Robson-Kanu chases a loose ball close to the touchline, but rolls his right ankle as he tries to keep the ball in play. Ouch. He'll need a bag of peas on that tonight.

    The Wales fans are humming along to their adopted anthem of Zombie Nation as their side set up camp inside the Andorran half. They may as well have a tent, groundsheet and some pegs. Chris Gunter cuts in from the right flank, but sees his shot easily gathered by Andorra keeper Ferran Pol.

  95. Akpom scores on debut

    England U21 3-0 Kazakhstan U21

    Arsenal's Chuba Akpom scored on his England Under-21 debut as Gareth Southgate's Young Lions defeated Kazakhstan 3-0 in a Euro 2017 qualifier at Coventry's Ricoh Arena.

    Akpom, who is on loan at Hull City, hit a post before scoring his side's third goal. Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek opened the scoring before Norwich City forward Nathan Redmond found the net.

    England have six points from two qualifying games but trail joint Group 9 leaders Norway and Switzerland, who have both played more games, by one point.

    "Andorra, let's be fair, are useless. The Wales players are going past them like they're not even there.    

    "But Wales have got to move the ball quickly and not take too many touches because they might end up being clattered. That challenge by Ildefons Lima was terrible - it looks like Bale might be in for some treatment tonight."

    Ildefons Lima fouls Gareth Bale

    Wales 0-0 Andorra

    Jonny Williams reckons he is fouled as he competes for the loose ball after that Bale effort. No way, says the ref. Hmmm, that looked like a foul to me. Williams seemed to be body-checked inside the box.

    But Dutch official Kevin Blom does blow when Bale is wiped out by a filthy tackle from Ildefons Lima. Yellow. Bale sticks a curling 25-yard free-kick just past the left post.

  114. Relaxing evening for Wales - Horne

    Wales v Andorra (19:45 BST)

    Wales have become accustomed to dead-rubber qualifying matches over the years - but tonight is different. Very different. No muted atmosphere, no half-empty stadium, no rueful thoughts of another failed campaign.

    "It will be a stress-free night - a night of celebration," former Wales captain Barry Horne told BBC Radio 5 live.

    "I'm glad there is nothing on this game, there are no third parties that need or expect a performance from Wales. They can relax."

    "It will be a great atmosphere, the last one of the campaign, we have got what we wanted but we have to do a professional job again tonight.

    "We are on unknown territory and it is a fantastic feeling."

  118. For the hardcore permutation fans

    The picture in Group A

    Lemurs using an abacus

    The last bit of permutation business to settle takes in the wondrous scenario of which team qualifies for Euro 2016 as the best third-placed team.

    As we know, the teams who finish third in the nine groups are guaranteed a spot in the play-offs. 

    And of those nine, the one with the most points from matches against the top five teamsin their group only will be whisked off to France directly. Results against the bottom team do not count.

    As it stands, Hungary are leading the waywith 15 points.OnlyTurkey can overtake them, but they have to beat Iceland, and hope Kazakhstan climb off the bottom of Group A by beating Latvia. 

    This is how the above scenario would work: At the moment, Turkey have 15 points in total, but taking away their two victories over bottom team Kazakhstan leaves nine points.  

    Victory over Iceland would take their points total to 18, and if Latvia finished bottom instead of Kazakhstan, only two points would be taken off, because Turkey drew against them twice.

    Got that?
