Denmark, France, Russia, Sweden and Greece have booked their places at football's Euro 2012 competition after a tense end to qualifying rounds.

Portugal though will have to go through the playoffs to make the tournament after a surprise loss to Denmark.

Sweden had a 3-2 win over previously unbeaten Netherlands who'd already qualified.

Titleholders Spain and 2008 finalists Germany were also already confirmed as qualifying rounded off their campaigns without dropping a point as Spain beat Scotland 3-1 and the Germans beat Belgium by the same margin.
