Group C permutations: Will Ukraine or Austria join Dutch in last 16?


roup C will wrap up on Monday, with either Ukraine or Austria – or perhaps both of them – set to join Netherlands in the knockout stages.

Two wins for the Dutch mean they are through to the last-16, while North Macedonia are already out.

That leaves Ukraine and Austria battling it out for second place and a guaranteed spot in the next round, but there could still be plenty of twists and turns in store.

Here is how things stand in the group, and the permutations for all four teams to qualify for the knockouts…

Pos Team P W D L GD Pts
1 Netherlands 2 2 0 0 3 6
2 Austria 2 1 0 1 0 3
3 Ukraine 2 1 0 1 0 3
4 North Macedonia 2 0 0 2 -3 0

The Dutch are through as group winners whatever happens against North Macedonia.


Second is a straight shootout between Ukraine and Austria.

Ukraine will go through second with a win or draw, while Austria must win to leapfrog their group rivals.

Having lost their opening two games, North Macedonia cannot finish third so their tournament is over after their last group game.
