- Turkey 0-0 Iceland
- Albania 2-2 Andorra
- Czech Republic 2-1 Kosovo
- England 7-0 Montenegro
- France 2-1 Moldova
- Portugal 6-0 Lithuania
- Serbia 3-2 Luxembourg
The Czech Republic came from a goal down to win 2-1 against Kosovo to book second place in Group A behind England.

The Czechs came from a goal down after Sheffield Wednesday striker Adthe Nuhiu scored a 50th-minute opener for Kosovo.
Goals after 66 and 79 minutes by Alex Kral took the home side through to the finals.
Ronaldo hits another hat-trick
Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick inspired Portugal to a 6-0 home win over Lithuania to keep them on course finish second in Group B behind already-qualified Ukraine.
Portugal's other goals came from Pizzi, Goncalo Paciencia and Bernardo Silva.
Serbia remain a point behind Portugal following a 3-2 home win over Luxembourg as Fulham forward Aleksandar Mitrovic scored twice in the first half to put them in charge.
Gerson Rodrigues pulled a goal back before Nemanja Radonjic restored Serbia's two-goal advantage.
But a second Luxembourg goal by David Turpel made for nervous final 15 minutes in Plzen.
In the final round of fixtures on Sunday, Portugal visit Luxembourg while Serbia face the tough prospect of a home meeting with group winners Ukraine.
France and Turkey both qualified from Group H following the latter's 0-0 home draw with Iceland in the early game.
The draw also kept Iceland on course for a possible play-off spot and they will look to win in Moldova on Sunday while fourth-placed Albania take on France at home.
France went top of the group after struggling to a 2-1 home win against Moldova who took the lead through Vadim Rata after just nine minutes at the Stade de France.
Raphael Varane equalised before an Olivier Giroud penalty with 11 minutes remaining sealed the comeback win.
Albania led at home to Andorra through a Bekim Balaj goal after six minutes but a Cristian Martinez double put the visitors in front.
Rey Manaj ensured a 2-2 draw which keeps Albania three points behind Iceland whose goal difference is three better.
