Head coach Only this chapter

Valdas Urbonas

Date of birth: 29 November 1967
Nationality: Lithuanian
Playing career: Mokslas Vilnius, Neris Vilnius, Vienybė Ukmergė, Makabi Vilnius, Minija Kretinga, Geležinis Vilkas, Žalgiris, Inkaras Kaunas, Videoton, Gázszer, Ekranas
Coaching career: Vėtra (assistant), Kaunas (assistant), Ekranas, Trakai, Spartaks Jūrmala, Žalgiris, Lithuania

• Played in defence for several clubs in Lithuanian capital Vilnius, including Žalgiris, whom he represented between 1993 and 1997. Then moved to Hungary, spending three years there before returning to his native Panevezys for a final campaign with Ekranas.

• Participated in Lithuania's first competitive matches as an independent country in 1992, and scored once in 14 appearances for his country overall.

• Following his 2001 retirement, worked as an assistant at Vėtra and Kaunas before being named head coach at Ekranas in 2008. There, Urbonas won five successive championships, two national cups and was named best domestic club coach three times.

• Named Lithuania's best coach again in 2015, having led Trakai to a second-place finish in the league. A brief spell at the end of 2017 in Latvia with Spartaks earned him another league title.

• Appointed by former club Žalgiris midway through 2018 and steered the team to a Lithuanian Cup triumph. Named Lithuania's head coach in February 2019.

Ljubiša Tumbaković

Date of birth: 2 September 1952
Nationality: Serbian
Playing career: Partizan, Vardar (loan), Radnički Sombor (loan)
Coaching career: Radnički Beograd, Obilić, Khaitan, Partizan (youth), Partizan (twice), AEK Athens, Al Nassr, Shandong Luneng, Steel Azin, Wuhan Zall, Montenegro, Serbia

• Belgrade-born Tumbaković started in the Radnički Beograd academy at the age of ten before moving on to the Partizan youth ranks two years later. He never appeared for the senior Partizan side in a competitive match and most of his professional playing career was spent on loan.

• Tumbaković went on to coach Partizan for nearly a decade in two separate spells, from 1992 to 1999 and 2000 to 2002. He won six league titles and three domestic cups to establish himself as one of the most successful ever Yugoslavian coaches.

• Had a solitary season in charge of AEK Athens either side of his two Partizan stints, leading the capital club to third in the Greek top flight.

• Tumbaković was later at the helm of Chinese sides Shandong Luneng – with whom he won two Super League titles and two domestic cups – and Wuhan Zall, as well as having spells in Saudi Arabia and Iran.

• Appointed Montenegro coach in January 2016 and oversaw a strong start to 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification only for successive defeats against Armenia and Poland to prove crucial, Tumbaković's side missing out on a play-off place after losing their last two fixtures against Denmark and, for a second time, Poland. Left his post on 7 June 2019 and was appointed Serbia coach on 1 July.

:: 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.
