The European Championship will continue to Switzerland. The team of national coach Vladimir Petkovic finished third in Group A with 4 points.

Given Monday’s results in Groups B and C, Switzerland is sure of its place among the top four No. 3 in this European Championship. The country plays in the eighth finals against the winner of Group B (Belgium), E or F.

In addition to the numbers 1 and 2 of the six combinations, the top four numbers 3 also advance. Switzerland needs 4 points to continue. Wales qualified in Group A with 4 points as a direct number 2 for the round of 16, where the goal difference was better than Switzerland. Wales meets Denmark on Saturday evening in Amsterdam, which needed only 3 points to take second place in Group B. Finland and Russia scored 3 points, but the goal difference was less than the Danes.

Finland finished third above Russia and can still hope to follow the European Championship. Ukraine has a slightly higher chance of survival than the Finns. Ukraine finished third in Group C with 3 points. The goal difference is slightly better than the goal difference for the Finns (-1 vs. -2).
