Head coach Only this chapter

John van 't Schip

Date of birth: 30 December 1963
Nationality: Dutch
Playing career: Ajax, Genoa
Coaching career: Ajax (youth, assistant), Twente, Jong Ajax (assistant), Netherlands (assistant), Ajax (assistant), Melbourne Heart, Guadalajara, Melbourne City, Zwolle, Greece

• Born in Canada, Van 't Schip was raised in the Netherlands from the age of eight, coming through the ranks at Ajax. The winger made his first-team debut in December 1981 and went on to win four league titles and three Dutch Cups with the club, also lifting the 1987 European Cup Winners' Cup and the UEFA Cup five years later.

• Also a member of the Netherlands' victorious squad at EURO '88, Van 't Schip won 41 caps for his country and was also involved in the 1990 FIFA World Cup and the 1992 UEFA European Championship, retiring in 1996 after four years with Genoa.

• Swiftly moved into coaching with Ajax's youth sides, taking charge of Twente in 2001; after two years back at Ajax B, he linked up with Marco van Basten to serve as assistant to the Netherlands national side.

• Left the Oranje after UEFA EURO 2008, following Van Basten to Ajax and working as his assistant there in 2008/09, taking temporary charge in May 2009 after the head coach's departure.

• Started a lengthy association with Melbourne Heart – now Melbourne City – in 2009, staying until 2017 either side of a year at Mexican side Guadalajara; returned to Europe in January 2017 for family reasons, taking charge of Zwolle from July 2017 to December 2018. Appointed coach of Greece in July 2019.

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.
