THE GROUP STAGE of Euro 2016 qualification concluded tonight and we now know how the play-offs will look.

Going by the latest coefficient rankings, the Republic of Ireland will be unseeded and will face one of the following sides in a two-legged tie:

Ukraine

Sweden

Bosnia-Herzegovina

Hungary

The four unseeded teams are as follows:

Denmark

Republic of Ireland

Norway 

Slovenia

On a pretty thrilling night, the big story was the elimination of the Netherlands while Turkey managed to sneak the best third-placed spot and automatic qualification after their last-gasp win over Iceland coupled with Kazakhstan’s victory in Latvia.

That meant Hungary dropped into the play-offs.

The draw takes place at 10.15am Irish time, while the play-offs will be played from 12-14 November and 15-17 November.
