Head coach Only this chapter

Karel Voolaid

Date of birth: 4 July 1977
Nationality: Estonian
Playing career: Flora Kehtna, Rapla Atli II, Koeru, Oper, Paide Linnameeskond
Coaching career: Flora Tallinn (youth, assistant coach), TPS Turku (assistant), Nõmme Kalju, Santos Tartu (youth), Estonia (Under-15, Under-16, Under-19, Under-21, Under-23, senior team)

• From Paide in central Estonia, Voolaid played in the lower leagues before moving to Paide Linnameeskond in 2008, and played top-division football with them in 2009, 2012 and 2013.

• Between 2003 and 2008, and again from 2012 to 2016, Voolaid worked as a coaching instructor for the Estonian Football Association (EJL), and gained his UEFA Pro coaching license in 2008; has been in charge of the EJL's coaching courses since 2016.

• From 1997 to 2008, Voolaid also worked in various positions at Flora Tallinn, including serving as assistant coach and coaching the youth team; in 2009, he moved to Finland to become assistant coach of TPS Turku.

• Returned to Estonia in 2010 to take charge at top-tier Nõmme Kalju for a few months before returning to youth football with Santos Tartu.

• Coached national youth teams alongside club teams throughout his career; took charge of the U21 side in 2017, and was named interim coach of the senior team in July 2019, following the departure of Martin Reim. He then committed to stay in charge until the end of the European Qualifiers for UEFA EURO 2020.

Joachim Löw

Date of birth: 3 February 1960
Nationality: German
Playing career: Freiburg (three times), Stuttgart, Eintracht Frankfurt, Karlsruhe, Schaffhausen, Winterthur, Frauenfeld
Coaching career: Winterthur (youth), Frauenfeld, Stuttgart, Fenerbahçe, Karlsruhe, Adanaspor, Tirol Innsbruck, Austria Wien, Germany (assistant), Germany

• A native of the Black Forest in south-west Germany, Löw spent most of his playing days with local club Freiburg, where he had three spells, before winding down his career in Switzerland.

• Operated as a player-coach in Switzerland before becoming an assistant, and later head coach, back in Germany with Stuttgart. Succeeded Rolf Fringer in 1996 and led the Swabian side to a German Cup win in his first season and the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup final against Chelsea in his second.

• Left Stuttgart for Fenerbahçe but struggled to match his early success until he joined Tirol Innsbruck, guiding the team to the 2001/02 Austrian Bundesliga title. After nine months with Austria Wien he was summoned by old friend Jürgen Klinsmann to become his assistant with Germany. The pair steered the Nationalmannschaft to a third-place finish on home soil at the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

• Replaced Klinsmann as head coach, taking the side to the UEFA EURO 2008 final and third place at the 2010 World Cup. They also reached the last four of UEFA EURO 2012, before qualifying unbeaten for the 2014 global finals. The real glory was to follow in Brazil, Löw leading the team to their fourth world title with a 1-0 final defeat of Argentina.

• Germany were unable to add the European title to their world crown, losing to hosts France in the UEFA EURO 2016 semi-finals. Löw led the team to a 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup triumph in Russia but a year later, in the same country, the holders' World Cup defence ended unexpectedly in the group stage.

:: 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.
