Euro 2024: Scotland drawn against Spain, Norway, Georgia and Cyprus in qualifiers SNS Group

Scotland have been drawn against Spain, Norway, Georgia and Cyprus in the qualifiers for the European Championships.

The top two teams will qualify directly for the tournament being held in Germany in 2024.

Scotland went into the draw in pot 2 after finishing ahead of Ukraine and Republic of Ireland to win Nations League promotion last month.

As part of the triple reward for winning their Nations League group, Steve Clarke’s side also secured a qualification play-off place for competition that will be heard in Germany, should they need it.

That route was used to qualify for Euro 2020, which was held across Europe in 2021, after beating Serbia in a penalty shootout in the playoff final.

Spain will be favourites for the group with Scotland expected to battle it out with Erling Haaland’s Norway side for second place.

The Manchester City forward has been in red hot form this season and will be a major worry in the fight for second place if his form continues into the new year.

Georgia have also proved a tricky opponent for Scotland in the past with defeats in 2007 and 2015.
