Estonia could still play at Euro 2024 – despite not winning a single game in their qualifying group.

The Eastern European side finished rock bottom of Group F, registering seven losses and one draw. And that one draw came on the road to Azerbaijan, in front of 3,900 spectators at the Dalga Arena in Baku.

However, thanks to demolishing Malta and San Marino, twice, in the Nations League, Estonia have a lifeline. Thomas Haberli's side finished top of their Nations League group - and will have the chance to go Germany through Path A.

12 teams are selected based on their performances in the Nations League – nominally the group winners of Leagues A, B and C, but if they have already qualified they will then be replaced by the next best-ranked team in their league.

However, if fewer than four teams from one league enter the play-offs, the first available slot is given to the best-ranked group winner of League D - which in this case is Estonia.

Amazingly, San Marino have scored more goals in their Euro 2024 qualifying games – finding the net three times, while Estonia only scored twice. Rauno Sappinen netted both of the goals, one against Austria and the other in the draw with Azerbaijan.

Estonia could face Poland, Finland, Iceland, Ukraine or Wales in the play-offs, which will take place next March.

Wales had the chance to qualify automatically on Tuesday evening, but a draw with Turkey means they also face the lottery of the play-offs.
