NYON, Switzerland(AP) England, Norway and Sweden have earned an extra place in next season's Europa League after topping UEFA's fair play rankings.

All three countries will enter one more club in the competition's first qualifying round.

The Europa League berth is allocated to the top-tier club which leads the national fair play table, and has also qualified for a financial licence to play in UEFA competitions.

Norway led UEFA's rankings which grades a country's national and club teams' behavior over one year in European matches.

UEFA match delegates assess teams for yellow and red cards, positive play, respect for the opposition and match officials, plus behavior of fans and team officials.
