2002 FIFA World Cup qualification – UEFA Group 2

The 2002 FIFA World Cup qualification UEFA Group 2 was a UEFA qualifying group for the 2002 FIFA World Cup. The group comprised Andorra, Cyprus, Estonia, the Netherlands, Portugal and the Republic of Ireland.

The group was won by Portugal, who qualified for the 2002 FIFA World Cup. The runners-up Republic of Ireland entered the UEFA–AFC play-off as the group's play-off berth was randomly drawn by FIFA for the intercontinental play-off against an Asian Football Confederation team rather than one from its own confederation.
