Head coach Only this chapter

Koldo Alvarez

Date of birth: 4 September 1970
Nationality: Andorran
Playing career: Aurrerá Vitória, Atlético Madrid, Toledo (loan), Salamanca, FC Andorra (twice), Balaguer
Coaching career: Andorra

• A reserve goalkeeper at Atlético, Koldo came through the club's youth ranks and lifted the Copa del Rey with the Spanish side in 1990/91.

• Leaving the capital in search of first-team football, Koldo played for Toledo before winning promotion to the Spanish second division with Salamanca in 1993/94.

• Signed for FC Andorra in the summer of 1994, dividing his time between playing for the club's first team and acting as a youth coach with the national Under-17, U19 and U21 sides.

• Capped 78 times by Andorra before his retirement following a 6-0 loss to England at Wembley in June 2009 having been named his country's best player of the last 50 years by the Andorran Football Federation (FAF) six years earlier.

• Took over as coach of the national team in February 2010, his side finishing bottom of their qualifying groups for UEFA EURO 2012 and the 2014 FIFA World Cup. That was again the case in the UEFA EURO 2016 preliminaries, although Andorra did score four goals – setting a new best mark for the competition – and overcame Hungary in June 2017 in 2018 World Cup qualifying, their first competitive win since 2004.

• Born in the Kharkiv region in Ukraine, Altman started out in Kyiv but made his name as a goalkeeper with Chornomorets before having to retire early due to injury.

• Started his coaching career with the Chornomorets youth academy aged 30 and promoted to the first team staff in 1982, working as assistant to Viktor Prokopenko as the Odessa side finished fourth in the Soviet top flight two years later; moved to Dinamo Moskva, first working alongside Anatoli Byshovets and then having a spell in caretaker charge himself, leading the club to a third-placed league finish in 1990.

• Following the collapse of the USSR Altman returned to work alongside Prokopenko at Chornomorets, helping the club to two Ukrainian Cups before two years assisting Byshovets with South Korea's side as they reached the 1996 Olympic Games.

• Struck out on his own as head coach in 1997 with Zimbru, winning two league titles and the Moldovan Cup before leading both Metalurh Donetsk and Chornomorets to third place in the Ukrainian Premier League. Went on to have spells at Ukraine's Illychivets Mariupil (2007) and Russia's Luch-Energia Vladivostok (2008) before his most recent club stint, at Tavriya Simferopol in 2011/12.

•  Had two spells as Ukraine assistant coach (2003–06 and 2010–11), helping Oleh Blokhin guide the country to the 2006 FIFA World Cup quarter-finals.

:: 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.
