Head coach Only this chapter

Roberto Mancini

Date of birth: 27 November 1964
Nationality: Italian
Playing career: Bologna, Sampdoria, Lazio, Leicester (loan)
Coaching career: Fiorentina, Lazio, Internazionale Milano (twice), Manchester City, Galatasaray, Zenit, Italy

• Spent the majority of his playing career in Italy, winning Serie A titles and UEFA Cup Winners' Cups with both Sampdoria and Lazio as well as six editions of the Coppa Italia, four with Sampdoria and two with Lazio. Capped 36 times by Italy, the forward was a bronze medallist at the 1990 FIFA World Cup.

• Started his coaching career as assistant to Sven-Göran Eriksson at Lazio before replacing Fatih Terim at Fiorentina in 2001. After leading the Viola to the Coppa Italia, he returned to Lazio and repeated that feat as well as steering the Roman club into the UEFA Champions League and to the UEFA Cup semi-finals in 2002/03.

• Became coach of Inter in July 2004, replacing Alberto Zaccheroni one day after terminating his contract with Lazio; led the Nerazzurri to Coppa Italia glory in his debut season, Inter's first domestic honour since the 1989 Scudetto. After Juventus were stripped of their 2005/06 title and AC Milan suffered a points penalty, Inter were finally crowned champions of Italy again. Mancini repeated that success in 2006/07.

• Left Inter in May 2008 despite winning another title and replaced Mark Hughes as manager of Manchester City midway through the 2009/10 Premier League season. City finished fifth in his first campaign, third in his second – when they also lifted the FA Cup – and dramatically won the top flight for the first time in 44 years on the final day of his third.

• City finished second the following season, but Mancini was sacked two days after losing to Wigan in the 2013 FA Cup final. Mancini succeeded Terim again that September at Galatasaray, winning the 2014 Turkish Cup in what proved his only season; returned to Inter for two seasons from 2014 before joining Russian club Zenit in 2017, stepping down the following year to take charge of Italy.

Abraham Khashmanyan

Date of birth: 11 November 1967
Nationality: Armenian
Playing career: Ararat, Kotayk, Shirak, Homenetmen Beirut, Yerevan, Erebuni, Mika
Coaching career: Kilikia, Gandzasar, Ararat (twice), Armenia U19, Armenia U21, Alashkert (three times)

• A skilful creative midfielder with a powerful shot, Khashmanyan made his Soviet league debut aged 17 for Ararat, then transferred to Kotayk in 1991; switched to Shirak for the first season of the independent Armenian Premier League in 1992.

• Kept playing until 2001, closing off his career with 2000 and 2001 Armenian Cup successes with Mika, where he was an inspirational club captain.

• Starting in 2003, he was assistant coach at Mika under Suren Barseghyan, and went on to hold similar positions at Ararat, Gandzasar and Kilikia, where he was given his first sole command going into the 2009 season.

• Following spells as national Under-19 and U21 coach, Khashmanyan led Alashkert to back-to-back Armenian titles in 2015/16 and 2016/17 and was on the way to a third before departing in March 2018.

• After a spell in charge at Ararat from October 2018 to April 2019, he returned to lead Alashkert to their first Armenian Cup success in 2018/19; took over as coach of Armenia's senior team in November 2019, following Armen Gyulbudaghyants' departure.

:: 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.
