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.


Helgi Kolvidsson

Date of birth: 13 September 1971
Nationality: Icelandic
Playing career: ÍK, HK, Pfullendorf (twice), Austria Lustenau, Mainz, Ulm, Kärnten
Coaching career: Pfullendorf (twice), Austria Lustenau, Wiener Neustadt, Ried, Iceland (assistant), Liechtenstein

• A defender who spent the majority of his career outside his native Iceland, Kolvidsson started out with local side ÍK, joining HK in 1991 after his first club folded. He moved to Germany in 1995, signing for Pfullendorf.

• Switched to Austria Lustenau 12 months later, enjoying two years there before returning to Germany with Mainz and making 61 appearances over two seasons. He subsequently had a year at Ulm and then went back to Austria, joining Kärnten in 2001 before returning to Pfullendorf three years later.

• Hung up his boots in 2007, ending a career that also brought 29 international caps – making Kolvidsson a rarity among Icelandic footballers in having represented his country without appearing in the national top division.

• Appointed head coach at Pfullendorf in 2008, he stepped down to work as assistant to Walter Schneck while studying for his UEFA A licence, resuming control in 2010. Kolvidsson left for another former club, Austria Lustenau, the next year.

• Spent 2014/15 in Vienna with Wiener Neustadt before a campaign in charge of Ried. Appointed Iceland assistant coach to Heimir Hallgrímsson in August 2016, he helped the team reach their first FIFA World Cup. After Hallgrímsson stepped down following Iceland's ensuing group stage elimination in Russia, Kolvidsson struck out on his own by succeeding Rene Pauritsch as Liechtenstein boss that December.

:: 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.
