• During a 17-year playing career that was mostly spent in his native Uruguay but also took him to Argentina's Gimnasia and Cartagines in Costa Rica, Ribas won the Uruguayan league with Nacional in 1977 and Bella Vista in 1990 and also won second division titles in his homeland with Liverpool and River Plate, in addition to his ten caps for Uruguay.
• His coaching career started successfully with a second division title for his first club, Sud América. Another second-tier championship success three years later with Bella Vista, whom he had represented three times as a player, earned a move to Montevideo giants Peñarol, where Ribas remained for three years, winning the Uruguayan national championship in 1999.
• His first move outside Uruguay brought him to Venice, but it did not go to plan as Venezia were relegated from Italy's Serie B. Ribas then tried his hand at international football, coaching Oman for a short spell in 2008.
• Back at Peñarol, he helped steer the club to the 2009 Uruguayan title but was soon on the move again, eventually ending up in Spain's Segunda División B (third tier) with Cartagena in 2014/15.
• He was appointed coach of Lincoln Red Imps, the perennial champions of Gibraltar, in April 2016, and although they were pipped to the title in his first full season, Ribas nevertheless made a name for himself by leading the team to a sensational 1-0 home first-leg win over Celtic in a UEFA Champions League qualifier (albeit in a 1-3 aggregate defeat) and then reclaiming the national title for Lincoln in 2017/18 before taking over as head coach of the Gibraltar national team.

• 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.
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.
