[EURO 2008 QUALIFYING] Defending champion Greece, Czech Republic and Romania joined Germany and co-hosts Austria and Switzerland in the Euro 2008 finals next year after qualifying on Wednesday.

Greece earned a return trip to the finals with a 1-0 win over at neighbor Turkey thanks to a 79th-minute goal from striker Ioannis Amantidis. The loss left Turkey in third place behind Norway in Group C and needing to win in Oslo next month.

The Czechs crushed Germany, 3-0, on goals by Libor Sionko, Marek Matejovsky and Jaroslav Plasil just four days after the Germans had wrapped up one of the spots from Group D.

Romania won, 2-0, at Luxembourg on goals by Florentin Petre and Ciprian Marica. The Netherlands has a commanding lead on Bulgaria for the second spot in Group G.

Poland and Portugal lead Group A, while Sweden and Spain are in the driver's seat in Group F.
