UEFA Euro 2004 qualifying
Teams 50
Champions 10 teams qualified as group winners.
Runner-up 5 teams qualified via the play-offs.
Top goal scorer(s) Slovenia Ermin Šiljak (8 goals)

The finals of the UEFA Euro 2004, were held in Portugal between 12 June and 4 July 2004. The UEFA European Championship is a quadrennial football competition between national teams organised by UEFA, the sport's governing body in Europe. It was the first time that the competition finals had been held in Portugal.

Qualifying for Euro 2004 took place from September 2002 to November 2003. Fifty teams were divided into ten groups and each team played the others in their group twice, once at home and once away. The top teams automatically qualified for EURO 2004, and the ten group runners-up took part in play-offs to determine another five teams. Together with the host nation of Portugal, who did not need to go through the qualifying process, sixteen nations participated in EURO 2004.

Portugal qualified automatically as hosts of the event.
