The first batch of qualifiers for next year's European Championship are nearly done and dusted with Monday and Tuesday's matches bringing the opening salvo to a conclusion.

Among the games to look out for over the next two days are Ireland's clash with France, Georgia against Norway and a resurgent Scotland taking on the might of Spain.

There are also some individuals to keep an eye on and here is a look at five players who could find the net in these next Euro 2024 qualifiers.

Georgia warmed up for their first Euro 2024 qualifier with a 6-1 friendly thrashing of Mongolia on Saturday and that victory was made all the more impressive by the fact they recorded it without star man Khvicha Kvaratskhelia involved.

But Napoli ace Kvaratskhelia was included in the squad for this month's matches and is expected to be involved in Georgia's first qualifier against Norway, who sustained a 3-0 defeat to Spain last time out.

There were gaps to be exploited in the Norway defence and Kvaratskhelia is exactly the kind of player who can capitalise, having scored 12 goals and laid on 10 assists for Napoli in Serie A this season. 

The 22-year-old looks a good bet to score at anytime.

Another Serie A ace to monitor in the coming days is Serbia marksman Dusan Vlahovic.

Vlahovic has struck eight goals for Juventus in Serie A this season and, although he often has to share his scoring duties with Aleksandar Mitrovic for Serbia, he is worth considering to get on the scoresheet against Montenegro.

Vlahovic scored against Freiburg in the Europa League for Juventus pretty recently and bagged Serbia's decisive goal in their recent 2-0 win over Lithuania.

Sparta Prague forward Tomas Cvancara marked his Czech Republic debut with a goal in a key 3-1 win over Poland last time out and the 22-year-old could again get on the scoresheet when his nation faces Moldova.

Adam Hlozek, one of the most up-and-coming strikers in Europe, led the line for the Czech Republic last time out but it was wide player Cvancara who looked the most lively, scoring and managing four shots on target against the Poles.

If he puts in a similar display against a shaky Moldova side, the goals could flow.

Croatia exceeded expectations to make the semi-finals of the Qatar World Cup last year but they were held by Wales in their opening Euro 2024 qualifier and should be wary of Turkey in their next game on Tuesday.

Turkey started their qualifying campaign on a winning note, beating Armenia 2-1 away from home, and Enes Unal looked sharp in the contest, managing two shots and laying on an assist.

Only Robert Lewandowski (15) has scored more La Liga goals than Getafe marksman Unal (13) this season and he can find the net when Turkey take on Croatia.

In Luis de la Fuente's first game in charge of Spain, all the talk was around the brace from veteran forward Joselu in their 3-0 win over Norway but Dani Olmo also got on the scoresheet and is worth watching against Scotland.

Olmo is a midfielder who loves to get forward, having scored the first goal of Spain's 7-0 romping of Costa Rica in last year's World Cup, and he could breach Scotland.
