[EURO 2012 QUALIFYING] Euro 2012 qualifying moves into its final week of group play with games Friday, Saturday and Tuesday.

-- Germany, Italy and Spain have won their groups, and England and the Netherlands have all but clinched.

-- Russia holds a two-point lead in Group A going into Friday's game at Slovakia. Ireland, Slovakia and Armenia are all alive.

-- France leads Group D by a point with home games left against Albania Friday and second-place Bosnia Tuesday.

-- Croatia leads Greece by a point going into their Group F match Friday in Athens.

-- Portugal, Denmark and Norway are all tied for first place in Group H, which won't be decided until Tuesday's Denmark-Portugal game in Copenhagen.

-- In addition, the team with the best second-place record will clinch an automatic berth in the finals. (The Netherlands can do no worse than qualify via the top No. 2 spot.)

-- The other eight runners-up will pair off in November to determine four more berths.
