Netherlands, Switzerland and Romania qualify for Euro 2024

The Netherlands, Switzerland and Romania have all confirmed their places at Euro 2024. The Netherlands went into their Group B clash with the Republic of Ireland knowing that a win would seal their spot at next summer's tournament with a game to spare. Wout Weghorst scored the only goal of the game in Amsterdam to condemn Ireland to a sixth defeat from their eight qualifying matches, while also clinching second place for Ronald Koeman's side by virtue of their superior head-to-head record over Greece. The Netherlands will finish a distant second behind France, though, with the World Cup runners-up making it seven wins from seven in ruthless fashion against Gibraltar. Les Bleus plundered 14 goals against their visitors in Nice for their biggest-ever win, becoming the first European side to score that many in a single game since Denmark beat Iceland 14-2 in a friendly in 1967. In Group I, Romania and Switzerland both stamped their tickets to next summer's tournament, with Romania beating Israel 2-1 in Hun gary to move into top spot. Also on Saturday, Wales saw their qualification hopes slip out of their own hands after they drew with Armenia and Croatia beat Latvia, while the other game in Group I saw Belarus beat Andorra.
