There were mixed fortunes for Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland, while England did not play.

The latest round of Euro 2020 qualifiers produced mixed results for the British and Irish nations.

Press Association Sport looks at how they all currently stand.

England – Group A (Played 2, Won 2, Points 6)

Involvement in the Nations League finals in Portugal meant Gareth Southgate's side were not in action during the most recent fixtures. However, it has not affected their position at the top of the table as although Czech Republic drew level on six points they have played three matches, one more than England, and have a vastly-inferior goal difference.

Northern Ireland – Group C (P4, W4, Points 12)

Back-to-back wins over Belarus and Estonia have taken Northern Ireland three points clear, although they have played more matches than their rivals. However, with Germany (nine points from three games) and Holland (three from two) having points on the board could be crucial.

Republic of Ireland – Group D (P4, W3, Pts 10)

A draw against Denmark and a win over Gibraltar kept Mick McCarthy's unbeaten side in pole position. However, the Danes, five points behind, have a match in hand while Switzerland, six behind, have two.

Wales – Group E (P3, W1, Pts 3)

Defeat to Hungary – following on from a 2-1 loss to World Cup runners-up Croatia – was a significant blow to Wales' hopes. They are now fourth in their five-team group, three points behind second-placed Slovakia and third-placed Croatia.

Scotland – Group I (P4, W2, Pts 6)

A win over Cyprus was the very least required and while a 3-0 defeat to a 100 per cent Belgium side was not unexpected, new manager Steve Clarke faces an uphill task. His side are fourth in the six-team group, three points behind second-placed Russia but still behind Kazakhstan, who inflicted a surprise defeat on the Scots in their opening qualifier, on goal difference.
