    The final two teams to guarantee their spots for the UEFA EURO 2024 championships are Poland and Ukraine, who qualified on Tuesday.

    In Cardiff, the Polish team stunned Wales with a 5-4 victory on penalties.

    Daniel James’ fifth penalty attempt for Wales, which would have sent his country to the EURO in Germany this summer, was saved by Poland goalie Wojciech Szczesny.

    Poland, led by Robert Lewandowski, will compete in one of the tournament’s challenging groups, Group D, against the Netherlands, Austria, and France.

    In the meantime, Ukraine advanced to the EURO 2024 finals by defeating Iceland 2-1 in Wroclaw, Poland.

    After Viktor Tsyhankov and Mykhailo Mudryk put the ball in Iceland’s net, Albert Gudmundsson gave Iceland the lead, but Ukraine rallied in the second half.

    Group E now includes Ukraine, Slovakia, Belgium, and Romania.

    Earlier on Tuesday, Georgia defeated Greece 4–2 on penalties to secure a berth at EURO 2024.

    In Group F, Georgia will play Portugal, Turkey, and the Czech Republic.

    The match between Germany and Scotland in Munich’s Allianz Arena on June 14 will mark the start of EURO 2024.
