Head coach Only this chapter

Robert Moreno

Date of birth: 19 September 1977
Nationality: Spanish
Coaching career: Penya Blaugrana Collblanc, L'Hospitalet, Castelldefels, Damm, Barcelona B (assistant), Roma (assistant), Celta Vigo (assistant, twice), Barcelona (assistant), Spain (assistant, interim, permanent)

• Originally from Catalonia, Moreno started coaching aged 14 when his PE teacher asked him to help in classes; after spells in the youth departments of several lower division clubs he eventually ended up at Barcelona B, where he met Luis Enrique.

• Enrique took Moreno with him when he was appointed Roma coach in 2011, Moreno also working as assistant at Celta in 2013/14 before returning to Barcelona when Enrique took charge of the first team; as well as serving as assistant coach, Moreno was also the head of opposition scouting.

• Barcelona swept all before them in 2014/15, winning the Spanish Liga, Copa del Rey and UEFA Champions League treble and also adding the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup later in 2015; another league title and two more domestic cups followed before Enrique, and Moreno, departed in summer 2017.

• Spent 2017/18 back at Celta, working as assistant to Juan Carlos Unzué as Enrique took a sabbatical, but the pair were reunited in July 2018 when Enrique was appointed Spain coach.

• Stepped in as interim manager in March 2019 when Enrique took a break from the position, and after overseeing three successive UEFA EURO 2020 qualifying wins was named Spain's 56th permanent manager – aged 41, their youngest since Guillermo Eizaguirre in 1948 – on 19 June when Enrique opted to step down.

Lars Olsen

Date of birth: 2 February 1961
Nationality: Danish
Playing career: Glostrup, Køge, Brøndby (twice), Trabzonspor, Seraing, Basel
Coaching career: Brøndby (youth/reserves/assistant), Randers, Odense, Faroe Islands

• Enjoyed an illustrious playing career as a central defender, winning five Danish titles in a six-year spell at Brøndby between 1985 and 1991.

• Allegedly drove from Turkey to Scandinavia when he learned of his country's belated call-up to EURO '92. His passion and leadership – he played every minute in Sweden – helped inspire Denmark to the most unlikely of triumphs. He ended his career with 84 caps, a record 69 as captain.

• Learned his coaching craft with Brøndby, taking charge at various youth and reserve levels after finishing his playing days at the club in 1996, before accepting his first senior job with newly formed Randers in 2003. Guided the team into the Danish Super League in 2004 but could not help maintain their elite status, suffering immediate relegation.

• Steered second-division Randers to a surprise 2006 Danish Cup success, beating Esbjerg in the final, while also securing a return to the top flight. Moved to Odense in summer 2007, leading his new side to a fourth-place finish in his first term. Consecutive runners-up spots followed in 2008/09 and 2009/10 before he departed in September 2010.

• Appointed coach of the Faroe Islands in November 2011, his team were unable to register a win as they came bottom of 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying Group C, earning their only point in a 1-1 home draw with Kazakhstan. However, UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying featured two high points in the shape of home and away wins against the 2004 champions Greece, while there were two more victories in the 2018 World Cup preliminaries.

:: 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.
