Zlatan Ibrahimovic's Sweden will face Denmark in a Nordic derby in the Euro 2016 playoffs.

Norway, another Nordic nation chasing one of the remaining four spots at the expanded 24-team tournament, was drawn Sunday to play Hungary in the two-legged playoffs next month.

Ireland, which qualified for Euro 2012 through the playoffs, faces Bosnia-Herzegovina this time. In a repeat of a Euro 2000 playoff, Ukraine and Slovenia were paired together again. Slovenia won back in 1999.

Alongside host nation France, the other finalists so far are: Albania, Austria, Belgium, Croatia, the Czech Republic, England, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Northern Ireland, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey and Wales.
