Finland and Ukraine had the same result and a similar campaign in the european championship played between June and July this year - one win and two losses. The Finns were in Group B, the same as Belgium and Denmark, who advanced because they had a better goal difference than their Nordic rivals (1 vs. -2). The Netherlands and Austria finished ahead in group C, but the Ukrainians managed to advance in the last round as one of the best third-placed teams. Soon after they eliminated Sweden in the first knockout stage and in the quarterfinals they lost 4-0 to runner-up England.
