The two nations struggled in Euro 2024 qualifying but both did register a win in the autumn international, which they will hope to take positives from heading into the first set of fixtures this year.

Cyprus were dealt a harsh hand in Euro qualifying, being drawn with Spain, an ever-improving Scotland, Erling Haaland and Martin Odegaard’s Norway and a Georgia side who may still reach the finals through the playoffs.

The Cypriots also struggled in League C of the Nations League campaign which preceeded qualifying, as a 5-1 defeat in Kosovo meant they finished bottom of their group, below Northern Ireland.

A surprise victory over neighbours Greece did limit some of the damage, but that remains their last competitive win, almost two years ago.

They would go on to beat Israel in a friendly game in November 2022, but they would need to wait another 12 months to taste victory against, beating Lithuania in their last match.

On the other hand, Latvia fared slightly better in Euro 2024 qualifying, but like their upcoming hosts, they finished bottom of their group.

Paolo Nicolato’s side were at least able to put some points on the board, as a victory over Armenia, which ended their prospects of qualifying, means Latvia finished with three points.

A 10-month spell between November 2021 and September 2022 saw Latvia go unbeaten in eight matches, winning six, with just two non-competitive games.

However, ending that Nations League campaign with a defeat at home to Moldova and a draw in Andorra has ended up being costly, and that allowed Estonia to take a spot in the Euro 2024 playoffs ahead of them, as the League D representative.
