Group 5 consisted of 6 of the 39 teams entered into the European zone: Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Luxembourg, Russia and Yugoslavia. In October 1992, however, after their away game against Iceland and home game with Russia were both postponed, Yugoslavia was suspended by FIFA as a result of the United Nations sanctions against that country stemming from the Yugoslav wars. The remaining 5 teams competed on a home-and-away basis for 2 of the 12 spots in the final tournament allocated to the European zone, with the group's winner and runner-up claiming those spots.
Note: The draw was made on 8 December 1991, at that time Yugoslavia was not yet called FR Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia was excluded due to UN sanctions in connection with the war in Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
During the draw Russia was known as Soviet Union and in 1992 as CIS, under which it competed at the UEFA Euro 1992. Following dissolution of the Soviet Union, a proposition of Ukraine to arrange a separate tournament for all successors of the Soviet Union and supported by Georgia and Armenia was blocked by Russia. The final decision on succession was taken on 1 June 1992 at the FIFA Executive Committee meeting in Stockholm.
