Appearance move to sidebar hide

Group F of UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying was one of the ten groups to decide which teams would qualify for the UEFA Euro 2024 final tournament in Germany. Group F consisted of five teams: Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Estonia, and Sweden. The teams played against each other home-and-away in a round-robin format.

The top two teams, Belgium and Austria, qualified directly for the final tournament. The participants of the qualifying play-offs were decided based on their performance in the 2022–23 UEFA Nations League.

Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku broke the record for most goals scored in a UEFA Euro qualifying campaign, with fourteen.
