The Netherlands cruised through qualification and nearly emerged with a 100 percent record, although Sweden managed to trip them up in Stockholm on the last day to put an end to that. It was a bit too easy for the Dutch in a group that included both Moldova and San Marino, which is some pretty stupid scheduling by UEFA, if anyone wants my opinion.

Anyway, Sweden, with eight wins and two losses, managed to clinch the coveted 'best runner up' position, which came with automatic qualification to the summer tournament. Hurray Sweden. Boo rest of group! Especially San Marino and it's -53 goal differential. If you want to become an international footballer, I'd suggest moving there and naturalising. Perhaps you could overthrow the government and become a captain-regent too.
