Euro 2012 Qualification Review: Group I

Team P W D L F A GD Pt
Spain 8 8 0 0 26 6 +20 24
Czech Republic 8 4 1 3 12 8 +4 13
Scotland 8 3 2 3 9 10 -1 11
Lithuania 8 1 2 5 4 13 -9 5
Liechtenstein 8 1 1 6 3 17 -14 4

Hands up if you didn't have Spain winning Group I. If your hand is up, put it down. It's not ironic or funny and nobody likes you.

Anyway, with Lithuania and Liechtenstein propping up the group, things looked all set up for a shootout between the Czech Republic and Scotland for second place, and Scotland at one point drew to Lithuania, which left them needing to go to Spain and win in order to secure a playoff spot. Needless to say, that wasn't going to happen, and it's the Czechs who emerge from Group I alongside the world champions.
