Euro 2012 Qualification Review: Group F

In what was almost certainly the weakest qualifying group in Euro 2012 qualification, Greece was able to squeak through in dramatic fashion, winning Group F on the final day to qualify for the finals this summer. Croatia led Latvia for the entirety of their match, while Greece trailed Georgia early. However, an injury after they had already used all three subs took Georgia down to ten men and Greece pounced, coming back to win 2-1 away in Georgia to take the group. Here are the final group standings.

Team P W D L F A GD Pt
Greece 10 7 3 0 14 5 +9 24
Croatia 10 7 1 2 18 7 +11 22
Israel 10 5 1 4 13 11 +2 16
Latvia 10 3 2 5 9 12 -3 11
Georgia 10 2 4 4 7 9 -2 10

Croatia will have to qualify for the finals through the playoffs after finishing in second place. They are one of the seeded playoff teams, and cannot draw fellow second place sides Ireland, Portugal and the Czech Republic.
