    Can someone please explain to me how 3rd place rankings work?

      Doesn't it give the groups that play later an advantage, as they'll know what they need to finish above Scotland

        Scotland will finish bottom so why would they care about them?

        Assume you mean the four teams that go through from third place.

        Every third place team are sorted by:
        1) Points; 2) Goal difference; 3) Goals scored; 4) Wins; 5) Lower disciplinary points total; 6) European Qualifiers overall ranking.

          Sorry, I didn't make myself clear. I meant how do the rankings translate into which 3rd place plays on the next round.

          For example, in the next round Spain will play 3rd from either A, D, E, or F. How is that determined as to which it is if say 3 of those 4 options go through?

          Does that make sense?

            I tried to copy and paste the explanation but it doesn't format well.

            See link for explanation.

              Thanks, that's really helpful. Not half complicated though!

                So England will probably get 3rd from group D. Austria or Netherlands most likely.

                  No idea - I haven 't looked at the tables and remaining fixtures. Even then, there are so many unknowns - one surprise result could change everything.

                    True. If France lose they could get them.

                    Or possibly Romania or Slovakia.

                      Cant see Georgia or Turkey getting 3rd. So its 3rd from group d or e basically. I think

                You just know Scotland will go out in glorious failure. They'll beat Hungary but somehow four other sides get four points and they go out on GD (by one).

                  There's more to it, but basically:
                  1. Head to head
                  2. GD

                  i.e. If you beat a team, you finish above them if there's equal points.

                  Kinda shit, because it renders a whole bunch of 3rd games absolutely useless now.
