    The road to the finals kicks off in September 2010 and runs through to October 2011.

    There are 14 places available alongside the co-hosts Poland and Ukraine for the tournament which runs from 8 June to 1 July, 2012.
    At the conclusion of qualifying, the team at the top of each group will qualify automatically. The second-placed team with the most points from games versus the first-, third-, fourth- and fifth-placed teams will qualify also. The remaining eight second-placed teams will contest two-legged playoffs for the right to join them.

    As in Euro 2008 qualifying: If two or more teams are equal on points on completion of the group matches, the following criteria are applied to determine the rankings.

    1. Higher number of points obtained in the group matches played among the teams in question
    2. Superior goal difference from the group matches played among the teams in question
    3. Higher number of goals scored in the group matches played among the teams in question
    4. Higher number of goals scored away from home in the group matches played among the teams in question
    5. If, after applying criteria 1) to 4) to several teams, two or more teams still have an equal ranking, the criteria 1) to 4) will be reapplied to determine the ranking of these teams. If this procedure does not lead to a decision, criteria 6) and 7) will apply
    6. Results of all group matches:
    • 1. Superior goal difference
    • 2. Higher number of goals scored
    • 3. Higher number of goals scored away from home
    • 4. Fair play conduct

          EURO 2012 GOSSIP

          England coach Fabio Capello was forced to use Arsenal's fifth-choice goalkeeper James Shea to make up the numbers at his squad's first training session ahead of the Euro 2012 qualifiers because of injuries to Ben Foster and Scott Carson.
          Full story: The Guardian

          Chelsea captain John Terry has revealed the hamstring injury that will see him miss the start of England's European Championship qualifying campaign dates all the way back to the summer's World Cup.

          Crouch has been ruled out with a back injury and will not be replaced.

          Goalkeepers Ben Foster (knee) and Scott Carson (back) missed Tuesday's training and 19-year-old Arsenal reserve keeper James Shea had to make up the numbers.

          Everton's Phil Jagielka, who had been expected to play at centre-back, missed training with an ankle injury.

            No major surprises in the results amongst the higher ranked sides, apart from France, who lost at home to Belarus. Their shit still seems to carry on.

            Good away wins for both of the Irelands, Norway and Turkey.

                The ref really did a number on us Estonians by not awarding a clear penalty which would have put us 2:0 up. In the end the stronger team won, but I still feel pissed at that spanish retard of a motherscrewing c*nt!

                  .. and in a late result
                  Portugal 4 - 4 Cyprus

                  This perhaps would have been the WTF result of the day, had France not lost at home to Belarus already. First post Domenec game, but Anelka banned for 18 games, Evra for three etc

                  For Portugal, Carlos Queiroz being banned for six months this week, probably had some effect here, I reckon.

                          Good thing that Portugal lost points. Though realistically, it's really obvious that Portugal and Denmark will advance from group H

                              I'll be amazed if Portugal reaches the Euro. They're more concentrated in their circle jerk to play ball... that was pathetic.

                                Portugal under performing - you have some great players! Always used to be Spain - they seem to have cracked it now though.

                                      Gogo Scandinavia!

                                      We're doing some good things against Iceland, still lacking a goal though.

                                      Finally!

                                      1-0 in the 90th minute!
