UEFA Euro 2020 Qualifying Group I

Group I of UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying was one of the ten groups to decide which teams would qualify for the UEFA Euro 2020 finals tournament.[1] Group I consisted of six teams: Belgium, Cyprus, Kazakhstan, Russia, San Marino and Scotland,[2] where they played against each other home-and-away in a round-robin format.[3]

The top two teams, Belgium and Russia, qualified directly for the finals. Unlike previous editions, the participants of the play-offs were not decided based on results from the qualifying group stage, but instead based on their performance in the 2018-19 UEFA Nations League.

Belgium won all ten of their matches, becoming the seventh national side to qualify for a European Championship with a 100% record, and the eighth instance, after France (1992 and 2004), Czech Republic (2000), Germany, Spain (both 2012), England (2016) and Italy (2020).
