They put their names down and said if there was any free places left they would like to be considered for them. There are, so they have been.
The amount of places was obviously an unknown. So there was a chance they would not go. That also applies to those that shot the euros, because beyond the team there was no guarantee there would be places either. But those that shot the euros would get priority in that event.
In this case, it turns out there are enough places for everyone who expressed an interest, including those that didn't shoot the euros. That's not always a given or known beforehand.
You don't have to shoot the euros to go. But in the event there aren't enough places, you'd be the first to lose out.
