From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification UEFA Group H was a UEFA qualifying group for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. The group comprised England, Montenegro, Ukraine, Poland, Moldova and San Marino.

The group winners, England, qualified directly for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Ukraine placed among the eight best runners-up and advanced to the play-offs, where they were drawn to play home-and-away matches against France.[1] After winning the first match by two goals, they lost the second by three and thus failed to qualify for the World Cup.
