Which teams are out of Euro 2020? Turkey and North Macedonia on plane home

EURO 2020 is in full swing and teams have a greater opportunity than ever before to progress to the knockout stages.

With 24 teams competing, 16 will escape the group and live to fight another day.

But that still means eight unfortunate sides will be going home early.

Which teams are out of Euro 2020?

Two teams are out of Euro 2020. They are as follows:

  • North Macedonia
  • Turkey

North Macedonia were knocked out after two group games, with head-to-head rules making it impossible for them to finish third or above after their defeats to Austria and Ukraine.

Turkey departed the tournament after a 3-1 defeat to Switzerland saw a wretched campaign end without a single point.

Does third place in the group go through to the last 16?

Third place DOES go through to the last 16, and Portugal even won Euro 2016 after finishing down in third.

However, this only applies to the four best third placed teams from the six groups.

Northern Ireland were the lowest ranked third placed team to qualify at the last Euros.

They finished on three points with two goals scored and conceded and a goal difference of zero.
