Euro 2012 Qualification Review: Group B

Russia is into Euro 2012 after defeating Andorra on the final matchday of the campaign, while the Republic of Ireland will enter the playoff draw thanks to a victory over Armenia. Macedonia had been counted out of the running long ago, while Slovakia were eliminated from contention late in qualifying in disappointing fashion. Surprisingly, Armenia controlled their own destiny as far as gaining a playoff spot until the very end, but they couldn't get a result away to Ireland. Here's the final Group B table.

Team P W D L F A GD Pt
Russia 10 7 2 1 17 4 +13 23
Ireland 10 6 3 1 15 7 +8 21
Armenia 10 5 2 3 22 10 +12 17
Slovakia 10 4 3 3 7 10 -3 15
Macedonia 10 2 2 6 8 14 -6 8
Andorra 10 0 0 10 1 25 -24 0

 

Ireland will be one of the seeded playoff teams, and cannot draw Croatia, Portugal, or the Czech Republic.
