Group A

Austria 2 Northern Ireland 0
England 8 Norway 0

England are through after destroying Norway 8-0. An unbelievable scoreline. Austria and Norway will play each other for the runner-up place. Austria are ahead on goal difference and just need a draw.

Group B

Denmark 1 Finland 0
Germany 2 Spain 0

Germany are through after defeating Spain 2-0 in the big game. Spain and Denmark will play each other for the runner-up place. Spain are ahead on goal difference and just need a draw.

Group C

Sweden 2 Switzerland 1
Netherlands 3 Portugal 2

Netherlands and Sweden have four points, Portugal and Switzerland have one point. We could end up in a situation where all four teams end up with four points. Sweden will play Portugal and Switzerland will play the Netherlands. The two favorites have not been super strong and the underdogs have shown some strength so Group C might end up being the Group of death.

Group D

Italy 1 Iceland 1
France 2 Belgium 1

France are through after a very un-convincing win against Belgium. Iceland, Belgium and Italy will all fight for the runner-up place on Matchday 3 with Italy v Belgium and Iceland v France to be played under a 30C temperature.
