UEFA EURO 2024 came to its conclusion in Berlin on Sunday when Spain were crowned the European champions.

We look back at the key numbers from another pulsating EURO tournament.

0 Belgium have now contested eight knockout matches at EURO finals but have never played extra time in any of them.

1 There were two team landmarks in Group E – Romania topped their EURO group and Ukraine drew a EURO match for the first time. Elsewhere, Denmark progressed from the group stage of back-to-back EUROs, Slovenia and Georgia reached the knockout stage, Spain finished the group stage without conceding a goal and England made the final of a major tournament outside their own country – all for the first time. England were also the first team to get to a EURO final after having trailed in the round of 16, quarter-finals and semi-finals.

2 Francisco Conceição's goal for Portugal against Czechia meant he joined an exclusive club of fathers and sons who have scored at a EURO, with his dad Sérgio Conceição registering at EURO 2000. The only other father-son duo to have scored in the finals are Italy's Enrico Chiesa (1996) and Federico Chiesa (2020).

3 Diogo Costa became the first goalkeeper to save three spot kicks in a EURO penalty shoot-out as Portugal beat Slovenia in the round of 16. He was also the first goalkeeper not to concede in a EURO shoot-out. Meanwhile, the reigning champions have been ousted in the last 16 at the last three EUROs (Italy at EURO 2024, Portugal at EURO 2020 and Spain at EURO 2016) and Gareth Southgate became the third coach to reach two EURO finals after Helmut Schön and Berti Vogts.

4 Spain became the first country to win this competition four times. Elsewhere, following their victory over Switzerland, four of England's five EURO tournament quarter-finals have been decided by penalty shoot-outs while four of Switzerland's five EURO knockout matches have also been settled on spot kicks.

5 Germany beat Scotland 5-1 to become the first team to score five goals in an opening match since the very first curtain-raiser in EURO history, in 1960, when Yugoslavia defeated France 5-4, while Harry Kane became the fifth player to have scored in more than one EURO semi-final after Valentin Ivanov, Viktor Ponedelnik, Dragan Džajić and Cristiano Ronaldo.

6 Ronaldo became the first player to feature at a sixth different EURO, his first coming all the way back in 2004. Ronaldo also extended his record of appearing in the most games in the finals (30) and, aged 39 years and 151 days, set a new benchmark for the oldest player to score a penalty in a EURO shoot-out. He could not add to his record 14 goals at the finals, though, meaning Switzerland's Xherdan Shaqiri is the only European player to have scored in each of the last six major tournaments (EURO and World Cup).

7 Spain won seven successive matches at EURO 2024. No team had previously managed that in EURO final tournament history without requiring a penalty shoot-out.

8 Spain and Italy met for a record eighth time in a EURO final tournament. It was also the fifth consecutive EURO finals in which the pair have faced each other. Elsewhere, Germany won their opening EURO game for a record eighth time.

9 France have not won their final group match in any of their last nine major tournaments, since beating Togo 2-0 at the 2006 World Cup (D5 L4). However, Les Bleus have never lost their opening game in a EURO finals group stage (W7 D3). Elsewhere, nine of Mikel Oyarzabal's 12 goals for Spain have come as a substitute following his winner in the final.

11 Albania became the first team to score against Italy in the first half of a EURO group match since 2008, ending an 11-game run.

Highlights: Italy 2-1 Albania

12 Dani Carvajal and Nacho became the 11th and 12th players to win the UEFA European Championship and the UEFA Champions League in the same summer.

13 N'Golo Kanté set a record for the most games played in EURO history without finishing on the losing side (W7 D6) when France edged past Portugal in the quarter-finals (excluding penalty shoot-outs). His run was ended by Spain in the last four. Southgate headed to the final having not lost any of his 13 EURO matches (W8 D5) as coach (excluding penalty shoot-outs) – the longest such sequence for a coach in EURO history – before La Roja also stopped his streak.

15 Spain scored 15 goals at these finals, beating their record for a single tournament that they set at EURO 2020 and the tournament record of France (14) in 1984.

16 Spanish teenager Lamine Yamal made history by becoming the youngest player to ever appear at a EURO finals when he started Spain's 3-0 win against Croatia at the age of 16 years and 338 days. He then became the finals' youngest scorer in the semi-final against France 24 days later, and the youngest player to feature in the final one day after his 17th birthday.

18 On Matchday 3, Germany's Manuel Neuer made his 18th EURO appearance, beating the previous record for a goalkeeper set by Italy's Gianluigi Buffon (17).

19 Türkiye's Arda Güler became the youngest player to score on his EURO debut when he struck against Georgia, aged 19 years and 114 days, eclipsing Ronaldo's previous record by 14 days.

20 England midfielder Jude Bellingham became the youngest player to appear in two EURO final tournaments at 20 years and 353 days, then the youngest to feature in two EURO quarter-finals (21 years and 7 days).

22 Bukayo Saka (22 years and 313 days) became the youngest player to make an appearance in two EURO finals, beating the record previously held by Uli Hoeness (24 years and 167 days) for West Germany against Czechoslovakia in 1976.

23 Nedim Bajrami gave Albania a stunning lead in their EURO opener against Italy after 23 seconds, smashing the previous quickest-goal record belonging to Russia's Dmitri Kirichenko (67 seconds). Also, Hungary's Dominik Szoboszlai (23 years and 234 days) became the youngest player to captain a EURO finals team.

EUROs fastest goals

27 None of Czechia's last 27 EURO matches have finished goalless.

29 Georgia became the 29th side to reach the knockout rounds at a EURO final tournament. Their goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili also made 29 saves in their four matches – 11 more than any other goalkeeper across the 2024 tournament.

36 Germany's Julian Nagelsmann (36 years and 327 days) became the youngest coach to take charge of a nation at a EURO tournament, beating ex-Slovenia coach Srečko Katanec by six days, while Kylian Mbappé reached a top speed of 36.5km/h – the quickest of any player at the finals.

38 When Luka Modrić (38 years and 289 days) scored against Italy, the Croatia captain broke former Austria forward Ivica Vastic's record to become the oldest-ever scorer at a EURO, while Spain's Jesús Navas (38 years and 231 days) became the oldest outfield player to appear in a semi-final at a EURO or World Cup.

Modrić becomes oldest EURO goalscorer

41 Veteran Portugal defender Pepe became the oldest player at a EURO finals during his team's 2-1 win over Czechia, then extended his landmark against Türkiye, Slovenia and France – the last-mentioned when aged 41 years and 130 days.

50 The stalemate between Netherlands and France in the group stage ended a run of 50 EURO finals games in which a goal had been scored. The previous 0-0 draw had been England versus Scotland at EURO 2020.

64.8 Portugal had an average of 64.8% possession across their five matches at the finals – no other side managed more than 60%.

91.2 Germany's pass completion percentage of 91.2 was the highest of any of the 24 nations at the finals.

100 Kevin Csoboth's winner for Hungary against Scotland in the 100th minute was the latest goal scored in regulation time in EURO history.

Highlights: Scotland 0-1 Hungary

117 There were 117 goals scored at EURO 2024, at an average of 2.30 per match. Michael Gregoritsch's strike for Austria against Türkiye was the 100th in the current edition.

290 Spain's tally of 290 ball recoveries was the highest of any team at the finals and 38 more than runners-up England.
