✔️ Final four Euro 2020 spots decided as Scotland ends 23-year absence from major tournament

Scotland's 23-year wait to feature in a major football tournament is finally over, following their triumph in a EURO 2020 playoff match played on Thursday night.  

In one of four matches played in  Belgrade, the Scots stunned the hosts in a  penalty shootout, with Fulham's Aleksandar Mitrović missing the decisive kick. 

The visitors had led through Ryan Christie's strike early in the second half, but Luka Jovic equalized to force extra-time and into penalties. 

Slovakia edge past Northern Ireland

Slovakia saw off Northern Ireland in Belfast, in a match that was also forced into extra time. 

Juraj Kucka gave the visitors the lead after just 17 minutes and seemed to be going through only for Milan Škriniar to concede an 88th-minute own goal to force the match into extra time. 

Michal Ďuriš then ensured Slovenia were through with the second strike in the 110th minute.  

Hungary comeback against Iceland

Dominik Szoboszlai scored the winner as Hungary came from a goal down to beat  Iceland 2-1 and book a place in next year's showpiece. 

Gylfi Sigurðsson gave Iceland the lead in the 11th-minute with a well-taken free-kick, but the hosts battled through the match and got an equalizer in the 88th-minute through from Loïc Négo.

It got even better in the final minute as  Szoboszlai got the winning goal to see the Hungarians complete a memorable comeback. 

The remaining spot was taken by North Macedonia, who saw off Georgia thanks to a Goran Pandev goal in the 56th minute.
