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

Group I of UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying is one of the ten groups to decide which teams will qualify for the UEFA Euro 2020 finals tournament.[1] Group I consists of six teams: Belgium, Cyprus, Kazakhstan, Russia, San Marino and Scotland,[2] where they will play against each other home-and-away in a round-robin format.[3]

The top two teams will qualify directly for the finals. Unlike previous editions, the participants of the play-offs will not be decided based on results from the qualifying group stage, but instead based on their performance in the 2018–19 UEFA Nations League.
