Head coach Only this chapter

Mick McCarthy

Date of birth: 7 February 1959
Nationality: Irish
Playing career: Barnsley, Manchester City, Celtic, Lyon, Millwall
Coaching career: Millwall, Republic of Ireland (twice), Sunderland, Wolves, Ipswich

• Mick McCarthy was appointed Ireland manager for the second time in November 2018, succeeding Martin O'Neill to return to a post he held with distinction for almost seven years. He had already enjoyed a distinguished playing career for Ireland, winning 57 caps and appearing at EURO '88 – Ireland's first major tournament – and the 1990 FIFA World Cup.

• Born in Barnsley, England, McCarthy – whose father was Irish – began his playing days with his home-town club, making his league debut in the fourth division in August 1977. A tough and committed central defender, he helped Barnsley to two promotions in his six years with the team before departing for Manchester City in 1983.

• Moved on to Celtic four years later, winning a Scottish league and cup double in 1987/88 and another Scottish Cup the following year. After a short stint in France with Lyon, McCarthy returned to England with Millwall, although injuries restricted his availability and he effectively hung up his boots when he was named player-manager by the London club in 1992.

• Installed as Ireland manager in February 1996 following Jack Charlton's departure, McCarthy's side narrowly missed out on the 1998 World Cup and UEFA EURO 2000, but reached the last 16 at the 2002 World Cup, losing to Spain on penalties; McCarthy stepped down that November.

• Then had three years in charge of Sunderland before occupying the Wolves helm between 2006 and 2012, guiding the team to promotion to the Premier League as champions in 2008/09, McCarthy's second Championship title following his 2005 success with Sunderland. Left Wolves in February 2012 and subsequently spent nearly six seasons at Ipswich, leaving the club in April 2018.

Åge Hareide

Date of birth: 23 September 1953
Nationality: Norwegian
Playing career: Hødd, Molde (twice), Manchester City, Norwich
Coaching career:
Molde (twice), Helsinborg (twice), Brøndby, Rosenborg, Norway, Örgryte, Viking, Malmö, Denmark

• Having trained as a tax accountant before turning professional, Hareide was a physical defender who represented his country 50 times between 1976 and 1986. His club career took him from Molde to Manchester City and then Norwich in the English top flight.

• Hareide made the transition to coaching before hanging up his boots. After returning from England he acted as Molde player-coach for two seasons. From 1987 he focused solely on coaching and a second spell as Molde boss brought his first silverware – the 1994 Norwegian Cup. His first trophy in Sweden was also the cup, with Helsingborg in 1998. In 2003, Hareide added a further Norwegian Cup as coach of Rosenborg.

• Hareide is the only coach to have won league titles in Sweden (Helsingborg 1999, Malmö 2014), Denmark (Brøndby 2001/02) and Norway (Rosenborg 2003).

• Coached Norway from January 2004 until December 2008. Under Hareide, Norway made it to the play-offs for the 2006 FIFA World Cup but lost 2-0 on aggregate to the Czech Republic.

• Returned to Helsingborg in 2012 for a six-month spell and steered the side to the UEFA Champions League play-offs. In January 2014 he was appointed by Malmö, leading them to the Swedish title and into the UEFA Champions League group stage for the first time at the start of 2014/15. He repeated the feat when Malmö progressed via the play-offs in 2015/16 before being appointed Denmark coach in December 2015, leading his side to the 2018 World Cup and ultimately the round of 16 in Russia. Oversaw promotion to League A in the UEFA Nations League later that year.

:: 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 was 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.

Abandoned/forfeited matches
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.
