Moldova and the Czech Republic have completed the lineup for the 2010/11 UEFA European Under-19 Championship elite round after being confirmed as the two best third-placed sides from the qualifying round.
Holders France, four-time winners Spain – beaten by Les Petits Bleus in last season's final in Caen – 2008 champions Germany and 2003 winners Italy all safely negotiated the qualifying round, which kicked off on 28 September. The Czech Republic finished third in Group 5 and, on the final day of action, Moldova did likewise in Group 6, both progressing by virtue of their record against the teams who finished first and second in their respective qualifiers.
