France and Turkey qualify for Euro 2020

France and Turkey have qualified for the 2020 European Championship after Iceland drew 0-0 in Istanbul.

Iceland needed to beat Group H leader Turkey on Thursday to stay in the running for a direct berth in next year’s tournament.

Hordur Magnusson came close for Iceland, eight minutes from time, but his effort from a corner was blocked on the line by Turkey defender Merih Demiral.

Turkey moved to 20 points, one more than France, which hosts Moldova later.
