Head coach Only this chapter

Şenol Güneş

Date of birth: 1 June 1952
Nationality: Turkish
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.


Koldo Alvarez

Date of birth: 4 September 1970
Nationality: Andorran
Playing career: Aurrerá Vitória, Atlético Madrid, Toledo (loan), Salamanca, FC Andorra (twice), Balaguer
Coaching career: Andorra

• A reserve goalkeeper at Atlético, Koldo came through the club's youth ranks and lifted the Copa del Rey with the Spanish side in 1990/91.

• Leaving the capital in search of first-team football, Koldo played for Toledo before winning promotion to the Spanish second division with Salamanca in 1993/94.

• Signed for FC Andorra in the summer of 1994, dividing his time between playing for the club's first team and acting as a youth coach with the national Under-17, U19 and U21 sides.

• Capped 78 times by Andorra before his retirement following a 6-0 loss to England at Wembley in June 2009 having been named his country's best player of the last 50 years by the Andorran Football Federation (FAF) six years earlier.

• Took over as coach of the national team in February 2010, his side finishing bottom of their qualifying groups for UEFA EURO 2012 and the 2014 FIFA World Cup. That was again the case in the UEFA EURO 2016 preliminaries, although Andorra did score four goals – setting a new best mark for the competition – and overcame Hungary in June 2017 in 2018 World Cup qualifying, their first competitive win since 2004.

:: 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.
