UEFA Futsal EURO in numbers

Ukraine's clean sheets, Eder Lima's goals, Spain's now-ended 3,276-day run and thousands of fans: UEFA.com crunches the numbers after Italy's triumph in Antwerp.

0 Ukraine were the first team ever not to concede in the group stage while their number of goals scored, one, was a joint-record low.

1 Number of previous finals played without Spain – when Italy beat Ukraine 1-0 in 2003.

2 Italy won their second title. Their previous triumphs in 2003 and Russia's of 1999 were the only past non-Spanish victories.

3 Most goals for a player in a single game, managed by Gašper Vrhovec of Slovenia against Azerbaijan and Russia's Eder Lima versus Romania.

4 UEFA Futsal EURO titles for Spain captain Torras – a number on which he will remain, one behind erstwhile team-mates Luis Amado and Kike.

5 Tournament-high number of assists by Portugal's Ricardinho, though he has also had the most shots off target, 18.

6 No team managed a maximum six points in the group stage; only the Netherlands lost both their matches.

8 Russia pivot Eder Lima's tally of goals in these finals has only been bettered by one man – his late compatriot Konstantin Eremenko, who managed eight in 1996 and 11 three years later.

10 Number of players from UEFA Futsal Cup finals hosts Araz Naxçivan in the Azerbaijan squad – with both sides coached by Alesio.

13 Number of goals shipped by Azerbaijan in their two group games – as in Croatia two years ago.

20 Russia's win against Spain was their first in their 20 meetings (including – and excepting – the 1999 final penalty shoot-out).

21 Goals scored in the last five minutes of matches, exactly 20% of the total of 105.

40 Seconds it took Russia to go 2-1 up, be pegged back to 2-2 and then lead 3-2 against Spain in the semi-finals.

61 Number of different players to have scored in the finals (not counting own goals), including ten from Spain.

66 Seconds from the end of extra time that Robinho struck his winner against Spain in Russia's semi-final triumph.

106 Portugal goals notched by Joel Queirós after his three in Antwerp – one short of André Lima's national record

121 Goals scored in the tournament, the average of 6.05 goals per game up from 5.45 two years ago.

141 Matches since Spain last lost over 40 minutes (11 December 2005, 2-1 friendly defeat by Brazil) – it took a late Miguelín goal to preserve that record against Russia, despite the extra-time reverse.

3,276 Days between Spain's loss to Russia and their previous defeat by any means against a European team, 3-1 in the UEFA Futsal EURO 2005 group stage versus Italy on 17 February that year.

89,240 Total attendance for the 20 fixtures.
