Date of birth: 10 September 1968
Playing career: Rapid Wien (twice), Werder Bremen (twice), Bayern München, Los Angeles Galaxy
Coaching career: Austria (assistant), Austria Under-21, United States (assistant), United States U23, Israel
• A Vienna-born attacking midfielder, Herzog started his senior career as a teenager with Rapid Wien and made his first appearance for the national team shortly before his 20th birthday. He would go on to become Austria's most-capped player with 103 appearances (23 goals) – a record that still stands.
• Twice an Austrian champion with Rapid Wien, the gifted left-footer's best years at club level came in Germany at Werder Bremen, with whom he won the Bundesliga title in 1992/93 and two German Cups. He also scored a personal-best tally of 15 Bundesliga goals in 1996/97, the season in which he returned to Werder after just one year away at Bayern München where he became a UEFA Cup winner.
• Returned home to Rapid in 2001 for two further years in the Austrian Bundesliga and then headed west to see out his career with MLS side Los Angeles Galaxy.
• Began his coaching career as caretaker of the Austria national team in 2005 and went on to be assistant to Karel Brückner. He continued to be head coach of the Austrian U-21 team, playing a key part in the development of future senior internationals such as David Alaba.
• In 2011 he joined forces again with his former Bayern team-mate Jürgen Klinsmann to become the assistant coach of the United States national team, helping them reach the round of 16 at the 2014 FIFA World Cup. After a spell in charge of the USA's Under-23s he took on work as a TV pundit before accepting an offer to become head coach of Israel on 1 August 2018.
Date of birth: 6 December 1969
Playing career: Slovan Ljubljana, Ljubljana (twice), Celje, Vevče, Livar
Coaching career: Slovan Ljubljana, Livar, Domžale, Celje, United Arab Emirates (assistant), Slovenia, Crvena zvezda, Lierse, Changchun Yatai, Riga, Levski Sofia, Latvia
• Born in what is now Serbia, Stojanović had an unremarkable career as a defender in Slovenian football, finiding his true calling as a coach in his late 20s when he led Slovan Ljubljana to national titles at Under-16 and U18 levels.
• Established his local reputation in charge of Domžale between 2002 and 2008, during which his side won the 2006/07 and 2007/08 domestic titles – their first top-division successes.
• After a single campaign at Celje, Stojanović moved abroad to assist compatriot Srečko Katanec, then coach of the United Arab Emirates; the pair were dismissed in September 2011, Stojanović taking over as Slovenia boss the following month.
• Stojanović resigned as Slovenia coach in December 2012, after just over a year in charge, and returned to football in June 2013 with Crvena zvezda, whom he steered to their first Serbian title in seven years in his lone campaign.
• After an ill-starred spell in Belgium with Lierse, Stojanović coached clubs in China and Latvia, then took command of Levski Sofia at the start of the 2018/19 campaign. He left the Bulgarian side in January 2019 and was appointed head coach of Latvia two months later.

:: 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.
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.
