Date of birth: 12 April 1973
Playing career: Genoa, AC Milan, Real Madrid, Internazionale Milano, Chelsea (loan), Monaco, Roma, Parma
Coaching career: Russia (assistant), Livorno, Ternana, Albania
• Having risen through the ranks at Genoa, Panucci spent two seasons in the first team before leaving for Milan in 1993, winning the Scudetto and UEFA Champions League in his first season with the Rossoneri.
• A right-back who could cover in central defence, he captured a second Serie A title with Milan followed in 1996. Panucci moved to Real Madrid midway through 1996/97, becoming first Italian to play for Spanish giants, winning another league title that season and the UEFA Champions League again in 1998.
• Short spells at Inter, Chelsea and Monaco preceded his 2001 move to Roma, for whom he would make more than 300 appearances over the next eight years, winning the Coppa Italia twice. He hung up his boots in 2010 after a year with Parma.
• Twice a UEFA European Under-21 Championship winner with Italy, Panucci won 57 caps in a senior career spanning 14 years. Made his major tournament bow at the 2002 FIFA World Cup and scored the added-time goal against Scotland that took Italy to UEFA EURO 2008.
• Worked as Fabio Capello's assistant coach with Russia before striking out on his own; had short spells in charge of Serie B sides Livorno and Ternana before being appointed to succeed fellow Italian Gianni De Biasi as Albania coach in July 2017.
Date of birth: 1 June 1952
Playing career: Sebat Gençlik, Trabzonspor
Coaching career: Trabzonspor (four times), Boluspor, İstanbulspor, Antalyaspor, Sakaryaspor, Turkey (twice), Seoul, Bursaspor, Beşiktaş
• Born in the Black Sea port of Trabzon, Günes became a legendary figure at his local club, keeping goal in the Trabzonspor side that won the Turkish league title six times – and three Turkish Cups – during his 15-year spell from 1972 to 1987; also won 31 caps for Turkey, captaining the team on five occasions.
• Made the natural transition from player to coach at Trabzonspor after hanging up his gloves, moving up swiftly from assistant to head coach; returned after spells with Boluspor and İstanbulspor, claiming the Turkish Cup in 1995 and a league runners-up spot in 1996.
• After brief spells with Antalyaspor and Sakaryaspor he was appointed Turkey coach in 2000 and proved an immediate hit, leading the country not only to their first FIFA World Cup finals in 48 years but all the way to the semi-finals, and third place, at the 2002 tournament in Korea/Japan.
• Left Turkey after failure to qualify for UEFA EURO 2004 and returned to Trabzonspor but reign was brief and later resurfaced in South Korea with Seoul. Returned to Trabzonspor for the fourth time in December 2009, winning the Turkish Cup and Super Cup the following year and finishing second in the 2010/11 Süper Lig.
• Spent 2014/15 at Bursaspor, guiding them to the Turkish Cup final, before taking over at Beşiktaş in June 2015. Went on to win the league title in his debut season, his first championship as a coach; made it two in a row in 2016/17 and took the club into the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds for the first time the following season. Agreed to take charge of Turkey for a second time in January 2019.

:: Team facts
EURO finals: The UEFA European Championship was a four-team event in 1960, 1964, 1968, 1972 and 1976 (when the preliminary round and quarter-finals were considered part of qualifying).
From 1980 it was expanded to an eight-team finals and remained in that format in 1984, 1988 and 1992 until 1996, when the 16-team format was adopted. UEFA EURO 2016 is the first tournament to be played as a 24-team finals.
Records of inactive countries
A number of UEFA associations have been affected by dissolution or splits of member associations. For statistical purposes, the records of these inactive countries have been allocated elsewhere: therefore, all Soviet Union matches are awarded to Russia; all West Germany – but not East Germany – matches are awarded to Germany; all Yugoslavia and Serbia & Montenegro matches are awarded to Serbia; all Czechoslovakia matches are allocated to both the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
For statisical purposes, when a match has been started and then abandoned but later forfeited, the result on the pitch at the time of abandonment is counted. Matches that never started and were either cancelled or forfeited are not included in the overall statistics.
