1 The competition rules state that the two best runners-up qualify to the intermediary round, with only the results of the runners-up against the winners and third-ranked team in each group being taken into account. However, due to the Bosnian-Herzegovinian Football Federation being suspended by UEFA and FIFA as of 1 April 2011,[1] Dalmatia, the worst runner-up, was allowed to progress to the intermediary round, replacing Bosnia-Herzegovina's representative team, Kanton Sarajevo, in Group 6.

Intermediary roundEdit

The 26 teams which went straight through to the intermediary round (after the exclusion of Kanton Sarajevo from Bosnia-Herzegovina, due to their suspension) were joined by the three group winners and three runners-up from the preliminary round. The 32 teams have been drawn into eight groups of four, with the following countries hosting each group's matches:

Group 1 –   Malta
Group 2 –   Portugal
Group 3 –   Republic of Ireland
Group 4 –   Slovenia
Group 5 –   Bulgaria
Group 6 –   Czech Republic
Group 7 –   Poland
Group 8 –   Ukraine

Matches in the intermediary round were played between 1 August 2010 and 30 April 2011. The winners of each group will qualify for the final tournament.
