Head coach Only this chapter

Lars Lagerbäck

Date of birth: 16 July 1948
Nationality: Swedish
Playing career: Alby, Gimonäs
Coaching career: Kilafors, Arbrå, Hudiksvalls, Sweden (youth sides), Sweden, Nigeria, Iceland, Norway

• A lower-league player, Lagerbäck began his coaching career in 1977 with Kilafors, joining the Swedish Football Association (SvFF) as a youth coach after spells with two other modest club sides Arbrå and Hudiksvall. Coached the national Under-21 and B teams until Tommy Söderberg took him on as his assistant with the senior national squad in 1998.

• Söderberg and Lagerbäck managed Sweden in tandem from 2000, reaching UEFA EURO 2000, the 2002 FIFA World Cup and the quarter-finals of UEFA EURO 2004; following Söderberg's departure, Lagerbäck took the troops to the 2006 World Cup and UEFA EURO 2008 single-handed.

• Stepped down after failing to lead Sweden to the 2010 World Cup finals, but ended up travelling to that tournament as coach of Nigeria.

• Appointed Iceland boss in October 2011, he steered the side to the 2014 World Cup play-offs where they lost to Croatia. Agreed a new contract that would mean he handed over the reins to assistant Heimir Hallgrímsson at the end of the UEFA EURO 2016 campaign – and promptly guided Iceland to their first ever major tournament.

• Even better was to follow as Iceland knocked out England en route to reaching the quarter-finals, where they lost to France, and in February 2017 Lagerbäck came out of retirement to take over as coach of Norway, his new side picking up ten points from their six 2018 World Cup qualifiers under his watch and going on to win promotion in the UEFA Nations League.

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.

:: 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.
