Date of birth: 4 March 1974
Playing career: Čelik, Senta, Kikinda, Partizan (twice), Werder Bremen, Schalke
Coaching career: Serbia
• A tall, left-footed defender, Krstajić's career began in the youth sector of Bosnian club Čelik from his home town of Zenica. He moved to Serbia in 1992 during the Yugoslav civil war, playing for unheralded Senta and Kikinda before being snapped up in 1996 by Belgrade giants Partizan.
• Rapidly became a Partizan regular, starting out at left-back before moving into central defence. He helped the Black-and-Whites to three championship titles (1995/96, 1996/97, 1998/99) and one national cup (1997/98) during his four-year stay.
• In the summer of 2000 Krstajić moved to Werder Bremen, where he performed with distinction for a further four seasons, climaxing in 2003/04 as he helped the club win the German Bundesliga/DFB Pokal double. He then left for a five-year stint at Schalke, where he was appointed as captain and established himself as one of the Bundesliga's foremost defenders.
• He played 59 senior international matches for his country, from 1999 to 2008, notably featuring as one of the 'Famous Four' alongside Nemanja Vidić, Goran Gavrančić and Ivica Dragutinović in the Serbia and Montenegro defence that qualified for the 2006 FIFA World Cup with the concession of just one goal. He also started all three matches at the finals in Germany.
• He returned to Belgrade to end his career back at Partizan, winning two more titles, before being appointed as the club's sports director. He later helped Serbia qualify for the 2018 World Cup as assistant coach to Slavoljub Muslin before replacing him, initially as caretaker, and leading the side at the finals in Russia, where they were eliminated at the group stage. Went on to oversee a promotion-winning campaign in the UEFA Nations League later that year.
Date of birth: 29 November 1967
Playing career: Mokslas Vilnius, Neris Vilnius, Vienybė Ukmergė, Makabi Vilnius, Minija Kretinga, Geležinis Vilkas, Žalgiris, Inkaras Kaunas, Videoton, Gázszer, Ekranas
Coaching career: Vėtra (assistant), Kaunas (assistant), Ekranas, Trakai, Spartaks Jūrmala, Žalgiris, Lithuania
• Played in defence for several clubs in Lithuanian capital Vilnius, including Žalgiris, whom he represented between 1993 and 1997. Then moved to Hungary, spending three years there before returning to his native Panevezys for a final campaign with Ekranas.
• Participated in Lithuania's first competitive matches as an independent country in 1992, and scored once in 14 appearances for his country overall.
• Following his 2001 retirement, worked as an assistant at Vėtra and Kaunas before being named head coach at Ekranas in 2008. There, Urbonas won five successive championships, two national cups and was named best domestic club coach three times.
• Named Lithuania's best coach again in 2015, having led Trakai to a second-place finish in the league. A brief spell at the end of 2017 in Latvia with Spartaks earned him another league title.
• Appointed by former club Žalgiris midway through 2018 and steered the team to a Lithuanian Cup triumph. Named Lithuania's head coach in February 2019.

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.
