Russia, England, The Netherlands and Scotland have all qualified for badminton's European Mixed Team Championship after winning their respective qualification groups.

The Netherlands finished top of Group 3 following a tight 3-2 victory over the the Czech Republic, which gave them three wins from three.

That tie all came down to the women's doubles, and Dutch pairing Debora Jille and Cheryl Seinen defeated Czech duo Sabina Milova and Tallulah Sharleen Van Coppenolle.

In the group's other tie in Linz, hosts Austria defeated Slovakia 3-2.

Scotland won Group 6 after a thrilling decider versus Spain, coming from 2-1 down to win 3-2.

Kirsty Gilmour's retirement in the women's singles put Scotland on the back foot, but a comeback was on the cards and completed thanks to the men's doubles pairing of Christopher Grimley and Adam Hall, who demolished Spain's Luís Enrique Peñalver and Alberto Zapico.

The Scots won the decisive last match 21-8, 21-5.

Hosts Portugal could not end Group 6 on a high, losing to Ukraine to finish fourth, above only Latvia.
