Russia’s isolation from international sport continues after UEFA confirmed the country would be left out of Euro 2024 qualification.
Russia have been banned from UEFA and FIFA competitions since they launched their invasion of Ukraine in February, with the Court of Arbitration rejecting an appeal against the ban in July.
UEFA have confirmed that Germany will qualify as tournament hosts, with the qualifying draw set to take place in Frankfurt on October 9.
Fifty-three countries will compete for the remaining 23 places in the final. The 10 group winners and runners-up will qualify, along with three other teams via a play-off competition to be played in March 2024.
These play-offs will feature the 12 best performing teams in the 2022-23 Nations League who have yet to qualify through the conventional route.
UEFA have announced that there will be seven groups of five teams and three groups of six.
