-- 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.
