Date of birth: 30 December 1963
Playing career: Ajax, Genoa
Coaching career: Ajax (youth, assistant), Twente, Jong Ajax (assistant), Netherlands (assistant), Ajax (assistant), Melbourne Heart, Guadalajara, Melbourne City, Zwolle, Greece
• Born in Canada, Van 't Schip was raised in the Netherlands from the age of eight, coming through the ranks at Ajax. The winger made his first-team debut in December 1981 and went on to win four league titles and three Dutch Cups with the club, also lifting the 1987 European Cup Winners' Cup and the UEFA Cup five years later.
• Also a member of the Netherlands' victorious squad at EURO '88, Van 't Schip won 41 caps for his country and was also involved in the 1990 FIFA World Cup and the 1992 UEFA European Championship, retiring in 1996 after four years with Genoa.
• Swiftly moved into coaching with Ajax's youth sides, taking charge of Twente in 2001; after two years back at Ajax B, he linked up with Marco van Basten to serve as assistant to the Netherlands national side.
• Left the Oranje after UEFA EURO 2008, following Van Basten to Ajax and working as his assistant there in 2008/09, taking temporary charge in May 2009 after the head coach's departure.
• Started a lengthy association with Melbourne Heart – now Melbourne City – in 2009, staying until 2017 either side of a year at Mexican side Guadalajara; returned to Europe in January 2017 for family reasons, taking charge of Zwolle from July 2017 to December 2018. Appointed coach of Greece in July 2019.
Date of birth: 12 January 1969
Playing career: Dinamo Zagreb (twice), Crvena zvezda, Real Madrid, Real Oviedo, Barcelona, Sevilla, Hrvatski Dragovoljac, Standard Liège, Portsmouth, Olimpija Ljubljana, Zagreb
Coaching career: Croatia (assistant), Crvena zvezda, Kayserispor, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina
• Born in Germany, Prosinečki moved back to Croatia with his family in 1979, and developed as a midfielder with stunning technique at Dinamo Zagreb.
• He moved on to Crvena zvezda and, after starring in Yugoslavia's 1987 World Youth Championship (now FIFA U-20 World Cup) triumph in Chile, he helped helped the Belgrade side to win the 1990/91 European Champion Clubs' Cup, scoring the opening penalty in their shoot-out success in the final victory against Marseille. He also won three Yugoslav league titles with the club.
• After a high-profile transfer, injuries hampered his time at Real Madrid, though he was to stay in Spain for some time, representing Oviedo, Barcelona and Sevilla before further adventures in Belgium, England and Slovenia.
• Capped 15 times by Yugoslavia and 49 times by Croatia, his goals in the 1990 and 1998 tournaments made him the only player to score in FIFA World Cup final tournaments for two different nations.
• Having assisted former Croatia team-mate Slaven Bilić with the national team, Prosinečki coached Crvena zvezda to Serbian Cup success in 2011/12 and led Turkish side Kayserispor from 2012 to 2013. Hired as Azerbaijan coach in December 2014, he stepped down three years later and was appointed by Bosnia and Herzegovina on 4 January 2018, guiding his new side to promotion from League B of the UEFA Nations League later that year.

:: 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.
