Head coach Only this chapter

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.

Armen Gyulbudaghyants

Date of birth: 19 December 1966
Nationality: Armenian
Playing career: Spartak Hoktemberyan, Lori, Banants, Homenetmen Lebanon
Coaching career: Banants (twice), Armenia Under-19, Armenia U21, Pyunik (twice), Impuls, Alashkert, Gol Gahar (assistant), Padideh (assistant), Armenia

• A powerful and creative midfielder, Gyulbudaghyants spent the early part of his career in the USSR lower leagues before joining Banants in 1992, finishing third in the league and winning the Armenian Cup in the first post-independence season. He scored 17 goals in 61 appearances for the club before retiring aged 29 after suffering a knee injury that also restricted him to a single senior cap for Armenia.

• Switched to coaching and in 2001 returned to Banants, combining his new role with gaining coaching qualifications. In 2007 he went to Moscow to study, becoming the first Armenian coach to acquire a UEFA Pro Licence.

• His most successful spell followed at Pyunik between May 2007 and July 2008, players such as Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Gevorg Ghazaryan and Karlen Mkrtchyan breaking through and going on to become the backbone of the national side.

• Gyulbudaghyants guided Pyunik to the 2007 league title and took Impuls to the Armenian Cup final four years later, his most notable coaching achievements; however, he also has a fine record in improving his sides' results and developing young players.

• Stepped up to take charge of Armenia in October 2018 following the departure of Vardan Minasyan.

:: 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.
