Head coach Only this chapter

Angelos Anastasiadis

Date of birth: 3 October 1953
Nationality: Greek
Playing career: PAOK, Panathinaikos, Korinthos, Diagora
Coaching career: Diagora, Panargeiako, PAOK (three times), Iraklis (twice), Panathinaikos, Cyprus, PAS Giannina, Platanias, AEL Larissa, Greece

 • Salonika-born Anastasiadis began his playing career with local club PAOK, serving the first team for eight years during which he won both major domestic trophies and collected a dozen caps for the Greek national team.

• Left for Panathinaikos in 1981, winning the Greek Cup in his first season and the domestic double in his third, which also proved to be his last, his career subsequently ending on the island of Rhodes with Diagoras.

• Did not start coaching until the mid-1990s, and paid his dues in Greece's lower leagues before landing the top job at PAOK in 1997. Had two spells with Iraklis sandwiching an eventful 2000/01 season at Panathinaikos, during which he led the Greens into the second group phase of the UEFA Champions League, eliminating Juventus and Hamburger SV en route.

• Returned for a second spell at PAOK in 2002 and led them to Greek Cup success in his first season, beating local rivals Aris Thessaloniki FC 1-0 in the final. After leaving PAOK in September 2004 he was appointed three months later as national team coach of Cyprus – a position he would hold for more than six years, during which the island nation enjoyed some of their finest ever results.

• After leaving the Cyprus job in the spring of 2011 he returned to Greece, eventually finding his way back home again to PAOK, but he had been out of work for two years – following a short spell at Larissa – when in October 2018 the call came for him to replace Michael Skibbe as the new national team coach of Greece.

Armen Gyulbudaghyants

Date of birth: 19 December 1966
Nationality: Armenian
Playing career: Spartak Hoktemberyan, Lori, Banants, Homenetmen Lebanon
Coaching career: Banants (twice), Armenia Under-19, Armenia U21, Pyunik (twice), Impuls, Alashkert, Gol Gahar (assistant), Padideh (assistant), Armenia

• A powerful and creative midfielder, Gyulbudaghyants spent the early part of his career in the USSR lower leagues before joining Banants in 1992, finishing third in the league and winning the Armenian Cup in the first post-independence season. He scored 17 goals in 61 appearances for the club before retiring aged 29 after suffering a knee injury that also restricted him to a single senior cap for Armenia.

• Switched to coaching and in 2001 returned to Banants, combining his new role with gaining coaching qualifications. In 2007 he went to Moscow to study, becoming the first Armenian coach to acquire a UEFA Pro Licence.

• His most successful spell followed at Pyunik between May 2007 and July 2008, players such as Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Gevorg Ghazaryan and Karlen Mkrtchyan breaking through and going on to become the backbone of the national side.

• Gyulbudaghyants guided Pyunik to the 2007 league title and took Impuls to the Armenian Cup final four years later, his most notable coaching achievements; however, he also has a fine record in improving his sides' results and developing young players.

• Stepped up to take charge of Armenia in October 2018 following the departure of Vardan Minasyan.

:: 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.

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.
