Murat Yakin, ironic before the match with Romania

The coach was asked if he wanted Switzerland to reach the first round to have a better chance of making an accessible group at the final tournament.

Disturbed by the Swiss microbiologists’ standards, which he considers excessive, Yakin ironically apologized.

“It doesn’t matter which box we are in. We will approach things the same, because we can beat anyone at the EURO. I am happy that we have qualified. It is the most important thing and at the same time deserved.

I qualified before the last stage, which has probably never happened before. But maybe I have to apologize that we haven’t qualified since the sixth stage”Yakin said, according to Swiss media.

The draw takes place next month

The first place in the qualifications is very important because it would ensure the “Tricolors” the distribution in the second-most valuable urn at the draw of the groups from the European Championship.

If it is defeated at home by Switzerland, Romania will fall to the fourth ballot, and the opponents will be much stronger.

For the establishment of ballot boxes, the results of these preliminaries are taken into account. The seeds are Germany, the host country, and the best 5 group winners.

The other qualified teams enter the polls according to the position occupied and how many points they obtained in the preliminaries. The results with the teams from the last place in the groups of six teams, such as Romania, are not taken into account.

  • The draw for the final tournament in Germany will take place on December 2, from 19:00 at the “Elbphilharmonie” in Hamburg.

Romania, Germany, England, Scotland, Belgium, France, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Albania, Denmark, Holland, Serbia and Switzerland are the already qualified teams at EURO 2024.

  • 20 countries qualify for EURO 2024 from the preliminaries, three from the play-offs, and the host country qualified automatically.
