Group A

Euro 2022 Group A

England clinched their place in the knockout stages as group winners with Monday’s thumping victory over Norway, before finishing their group campaign in style with a 5-0 win against Northern Ireland on Friday.

The Norwegians could still have joined the Lionesses in the last eight by beating Austria, but Irene Fuhrmann’s side beat the 2013 finalists at the Amex Stadium to finish as Group A runners-up.

Northern Ireland finish bottom of the group with three defeats from their three matches.

Group B

Group B

Germany maintained their 100% record with victory over Finland in the final group game, sealing top spot and avoiding a quarter-final meeting with hosts England.

Instead, the eight-time European champions face Austria in the last eight.

Spain clinched a late victory in their last group game against Denmark to take second spot and set up a quarter-final against the Lionesses.

Denmark finish third, while three straight defeats means Finland end up bottom of the group.

Group C

It was all to play for in Group C heading into the final games, with all four teams still in with a chance of qualifying for the quarter-finals.

Sweden, runners-up in 1987, thrashed Portugal 5-0 to top the group and maintain their record of reaching the knockout stage of every Euros they have qualified for.

Defending champions the Netherlands beat Switzerland 4-1 to take the second qualifying spot and set up a tantalising quarter-final meeting with France.

Switzerland and Portugal managed to pick up just a point apiece in the group and are heading home.

Group D

Group D

There was a dramatic conclusion to Group D.

France had already qualified as group winners after thumping Italy and edging past Belgium in their opening two group games.

They came up against Iceland in the last match but conceded a goal from the penalty spot in the 12th minute of additional time.

But the 1-1 draw was not enough as Iceland finished third and became the first ever side to exit the tournament without losing a game.

Belgium’s narrow 1-0 victory over Italy in the other game was enough to clinch second place in the group, while the Azzurre finished bottom.

France play a tasty last-eight match against defending champions the Netherlands, while Belgium are up against Sweden.

When do the quarter-finals take place?

Wednesday, 20 July: England v Spain
