No penalties in Italy vs France

UEFA have clarified the uncertainty surrounding the match between Italy and France. Should Romania win and the other game (Italy vs France) finish in a draw, it was suggested that a penalty shootout would be necessary to determine 3rd and 4th place in Group C. However, UEFA have stated that such thing will not happen, as the rule states that penalties can only be used in the case where a qualification place is up for grabs.

“If two teams which have the same number of points, the same number of goals scored and conceded, play their last group match against each other and are still equal at the end of that match, the ranking of the two teams in question will be determined by kicks from the penalty mark, provided no other teams within the group have the same number of points on completion of all group matches.” – Official UEFA Rule
