The Republic of Ireland was left without a chance to qualify for Euro 2024 directly after losing (0-2) to Greece in Dublin. However, the victory (0-1) of the Netherlands in Athens has meant that the Irish team still has a remote option of getting into the play-offs if an almost impossible outcome occurs.
Currently, Stephen Kenny’s team is fourth in the group B with six points. Ahead is France with 18 (already qualified), the Netherlands with 12 and Greece with 12, although Koeman’s men have won the particular confrontation with the Hellenes and that is why they are ahead. On November 18, Ireland visits Amsterdam in its last match of this phase… and it would behoove them to lose to dream of the play-offs! All because of their classification in the Nations League.
This is group B
The ‘Oranje, in group A of the Nations League, would go directly into the Euro and would create an additional place that the ‘Boys in Green’ could take advantage of, in group B. Greece, for its part, has the play-off secured through League C. However, it would be impossible. Ireland, to get into the playoff, needs to have no more than seven teams from routes A and B ahead of it in the playoffs via Nations. a chimera
