Head coach Only this chapter

Robert Prosinečki

Date of birth: 12 January 1969
Playing career:
Dinamo Zagreb (twice), Crvena zvezda, Real Madrid, Real Oviedo, Barcelona, Sevilla, Hrvatski Dragovoljac, Standard Liège, Portsmouth, Olimpija Ljubljana, Zagreb
Coaching career:
Croatia (assistant), Crvena zvezda, Kayserispor, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina

• Born in Germany, Prosinečki moved back to Croatia with his family in 1979, and developed as a midfielder with stunning technique at Dinamo Zagreb.

• He moved on to Crvena zvezda and, after starring in Yugoslavia's 1987 World Youth Championship (now FIFA U-20 World Cup) triumph in Chile, he helped helped the Belgrade side to win the 1990/91 European Champion Clubs' Cup, scoring the opening penalty in their shoot-out success in the final victory against Marseille. He also won three Yugoslav league titles with the club.

• After a high-profile transfer, injuries hampered his time at Real Madrid, though he was to stay in Spain for some time, representing Oviedo, Barcelona and Sevilla before further adventures in Belgium, England and Slovenia.

• Capped 15 times by Yugoslavia and 49 times by Croatia, his goals in the 1990 and 1998 tournaments made him the only player to score in FIFA World Cup final tournaments for two different nations.

• Having assisted former Croatia team-mate Slaven Bilić with the national team, Prosinečki coached Crvena zvezda to Serbian Cup success in 2011/12 and led Turkish side Kayserispor from 2012 to 2013. Hired as Azerbaijan coach in December 2014, he stepped down three years later and was appointed by Bosnia and Herzegovina on 4 January 2018, guiding his new side to promotion from League B of the UEFA Nations League later that year.


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.

:: 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.
