Three more teams have locked down spots at EURO 2016 next June, as just two more matchdays or qualification remain.

Poland 2-1 Republic of Ireland

Another match for Poland, another goal for Robert Lewandowski. With the match tied at one, Lewandowski scored the game-winner for Poland to secure a berth in EURO 2016. The goal was Lewandowski’s 13th of the qualifying campaign, tying the record set by Northern Ireland’s David Healy in 2008. Poland finishes second in Group D behind Germany, while Ireland finishes third and will have to qualify through a play-off.

Armenia 0-3 Albania

Albania qualified for their first-ever major tournament with a 3-0 win over Armenia. Having never featured in a World Cup or European Championship, the win secured second place in Group I, sending Albania to France next June. Armenia remains without a win in qualification.

Constantin Budescu scored twice in the first half and Alexandru Maxim added a late insurance goal to earn qualification after missing out on the tournament in 2012. Romania conceded just two goals in ten matches, the best defensive record in the entire competition.
