Match background Only this chapter

The overall history between the Netherlands and Austria suggests a close contest in prospect in Amsterdam – although the Dutch have plenty of reasons for optimism having won all of the countries' last six matches.

• The teams are level on three points in Group C having both won their opening matches. Austria earned their first ever EURO finals win at the seventh attempt, beating North Macedonia 3-1 in Bucharest; Stefan Lainer's 18th-minute goal was cancelled out before late strikes from Michael Gregoritsch (78) and Marko Arnautović (89) sealed Austria's victory.

• The Netherlands also left it late before seeing off Ukraine 3-2 in Amsterdam. Goals early in the second half from Georginio Wijnaldum (52) and Wout Weghorst (59) were cancelled out by two Ukraine goals in five minutes, but Denzel Dumfries' first international goal five minutes from time finally earned the Oranje the points.

Previous meetings
• The most recent fixture between the sides was a friendly in Vienna on 4 June 2016, the Netherlands – then coached by Danny Blind – recording a 2-0 victory at at the Ernst Happel Stadion thanks to a goal in each half from Vincent Janssen and Wijnaldum against Marcel Koller's Austria.

• That was the 19th match between the teams, and a ninth Dutch victory. The Oranje have scored 18 goals in winning the last six such matches, an average of three per game.

• That six-match winning sequence includes the sides' only previous UEFA European Championship contests, in qualifying for UEFA EURO 2004. The Netherlands, managed by Dick Advocaat, won 3-0 against Hans Krankl's Austria in Vienna in October 2002 thanks to goals from Clarence Seedorf, Phillip Cocu and Roy Makaay, before a 3-1 home triumph in Rotterdam in which Rafael van der Vaart, Patrick Kluivert and Cocu got the Dutch goals, Austria's Emanuel Pogatetz having made the score 1-1. The Netherlands went on to finish second in the section behind the Czech Republic on 19 points and ultimately reached the final tournament in Portugal via the play-offs; Austria were third, ten points behind.

• The most recent encounter in the Netherlands, a friendly in Eindhoven on 9 February 2011, ended in a 3-1 home win, with substitute Luuk de Jong making his international debut for the Oranje. Austria's late consolation goal was scored from the penalty spot by Arnautović after Wesley Sneijder, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Dirk Kuyt (penalty) had put the home side 3-0 up.

• Austria's last victory against the Netherlands came in a Vienna friendly on 30 May 1990. Goals from Robert Pecl, Manfred Zsak and Anton Pfeffer gave the home side a three-goal lead at the Praterstadion, although strikes in the final half-hour from Ronald Koeman and Marco van Basten ensured a tense finale.

• This is only the sides' second fixture in a final tournament; the Netherlands were 5-1 winners in Córdoba in the second group stage of the 1978 FIFA World Cup, Johnny Rep scoring twice with Ernie Brandts, Rob Rensenbrink and Willy van der Kerkhof also on target.

• The teams have not met in Amsterdam since a 1-1 friendly draw at the Olympisch Stadion in April 1964. That preserved Austria's unbeaten record in the city, the visitors having also drawn 1-1 there in September 1957 after a 1-0 success in December 1933, both friendlies.

EURO facts: Netherlands
• The Netherlands have appeared in nine previous UEFA European Championship final tournaments; they missed out on UEFA EURO 2016, the first time they had not featured in a EURO since 1984.

• Champions in 1988 – their sole major international trophy – the Netherlands finished third at the 1976 UEFA European Championship and also reached the semi-finals in 1992, 2000 as co-hosts and 2004. Their most recent knockout appearance came in 2008, when they lost to Russia after extra time in the quarter-finals.

• On their last EURO appearance, in 2012, a team coached by Bert van Marwijk finished bottom of a group including Portugal, Germany and Denmark without a point; that made it four consecutive final tournament defeats – a run the Netherlands brought to a halt on Matchday 1. 

• The Oranje finished fourth in their UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying group behind the Czech Republic, Iceland and Turkey.

• This is the first time the Netherlands have featured in a European Championship or FIFA World Cup since finishing third at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

• The Dutch did, however, reach the final of the first UEFA Nations League in 2019, beating England 3-1 after extra time in the semi-finals only to lose 1-0 to hosts Portugal in the final.

• Ronald Koeman's side finished second behind Germany in UEFA EURO 2020 qualifying Group C, picking up 19 points from their eight matches (W6 D1 L1). Koeman was replaced as coach by Frank de Boer in September 2020.

• Memphis Depay provided eight assists in qualifying, more than any other player. Having scored six himself, he played a direct role in 58% of the Netherlands' 24 goals.

• Having managed ten goals in his first 53 international appearances, Wijnaldum hit eight in seven qualifying outings to finish as the Netherlands' top scorer.

• Their Matchday 1 win against Ukraine means the Netherlands' record in Amsterdam overall is now W57 D26 L34. At the Johan Cruijff ArenA, their record is W40 D19 L14, although they have won just eight of the last 20 matches in the stadium (D2 L10). In qualifying for UEFA EURO 2020, the Netherlands lost 3-2 to Germany in Amsterdam but beat Estonia 5-0 there.

EURO facts: Austria
• This is Austria's third EURO finals appearance, all in the last 12 years. Having appeared as co-hosts at UEFA EURO 2008 but failed to win in three games, they qualified for the tournament for the first time at UEFA EURO 2016 but again bowed out without recording a victory.

• The Matchday 1 defeat of North Macedonia means Austria's record in EURO final tournaments is now therefore W1 D2 L4 F5 A8. Their three goals in their opening UEFA EURO 2020 fixture were the first time they had scored more than once in a EURO finals match.

• At UEFA EURO 2016, Austria finished bottom of Group F, losing to Hungary (0-2) and Iceland (1-2) either side of a goalless draw against eventual champions Portugal.

• Austria's greatest achievement is a third-place finish at the 1954 World Cup in neighbouring Switzerland. They last qualified for a World Cup in 1998, when the tournament was staged in France.

• Matchday 1 was Austria's first victory at a major finals since a 2-1 defeat of the United States in the 1990 World Cup group stage.

• Franco Foda's side booked their place at UEFA EURO 2020 as Group G runners-up behind Poland, winning six of their ten qualifiers (D1 L3). They lost their first two matches and, with their finals place already secured, the last, 1-0 in Latvia.

• This is Austria's first game at the Johan Cruijff ArenA.

Links and trivia
• Netherlands coach De Boer enjoyed one of his greatest successes as a player on Austrian soil, as part of the Ajax team that beat AC Milan 1-0 in the 1995 UEFA Champions League final in Vienna.

• Has played in the Netherlands:
Marko Arnautović (Twente 2006–09)

• Have played together:
Wout Weghorst & Pavao Pervan (Wolfsburg 2018–)
Wout Weghorst & Xaver Schlager (Wolfsburg 2019–)
Davy Klaassen & Marco Friedl (Werder Bremen 2018–20)
Stefan de Vrij & Valentino Lazaro (Inter 2019)

• Wijnaldum was in the Liverpool team that defeated Andreas Ulmer's Salzburg 2-0 on Matchday 6 of the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League, a result that ended the Austrian side's hopes of reaching the knockout rounds.

• Opposing goalkeepers Tim Krul and Daniel Bechmann were both promoted to the Premier League at the end of the 2020/21 season with Norwich and Watford respectively.

Latest news

• The Matchday 1 win against Ukraine was the Netherlands' sixth in their last eight matches, during which they have scored 24 goals – never less than two in any game.

• The Oranje needed a late free-kick equaliser from Memphis Depay – his second goal of the contest – to earn a 2-2 draw against Scotland in southern Portugal on 2 June, but their second pre-UEFA EURO 2020 friendly brought a 3-0 victory over Georgia in Enschede four days later, Depay scoring again, from the penalty spot, before victory was secured in the second half with first international goals from Wout Weghorst and Ryan Gravenberch.

• Jurriën Timber, 19, made his senior debut for the Oranje against Scotland and also started against Georgia and Ukraine, while the game in Enschede brought a first appearance in the Netherlands goal since November 2016 for his Ajax team-mate, Maarten Stekelenburg, who in retaining his place against Ukraine became, at the age of 38 years and 264 days, the Netherlands' oldest ever tournament participant.

• Captain Georginio Wijnaldum's goal was his 23rd for the Netherlands, putting him one behind the legendary Marco van Basten, while Weghorst's was his second, in as many games, and Denzel Dumfries's match-winning header his first, on his 20th appearance.

• Timber, Stekelenburg, Gravenberch, Daley Blind and Davy Klaassen are all appearing at their home stadium in the group stage of UEFA EURO 2020, having won the Dutch league and cup double with Ajax in 2020/21. Other major trophy winners this year in the Dutch squad are Stefan de Vrij, who won the Italian title with Internazionale, Nathan Aké, a Premier League champion with Manchester City, and ex-Ajax pair Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong, who were domestic cup winners with Juventus and Barcelona respectively.

• Stekelenburg is the only member of the Netherlands UEFA EURO 2020 squad with previous EURO final tournament experience. He made one appearance in 2008 – a 2-0 win against Romania – and was the Oranje's starting goalkeeper in all three of their matches – and defeats – at the 2012 tournament.

• Stekelenburg also kept goal for the Netherlands in all seven of their games at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, including the final. Four years later there were six other members of the Netherlands' UEFA EURO 2020 squad present at the finals in Brazil – fellow goalkeeper Tim Krul, defenders Blind, De Vrij and Joël Veltman, midfielder Wijnaldum and forward Depay. Veltman was the only one of those five outfield players not to score at the tournament.

• Wijnaldum has started all of the Oranje's last 15 games and is one game short of a 50th competitive appearance for his country. The Netherlands captain recently left Liverpool after five seasons to join Paris Saint-Germain.

• Donny van de Beek was a late withdrawal from the squad through injury. Coach Frank de Boer did not call up a replacement, leaving the Netherlands with 25 players.

• Austria's win against North Macedonia on Matchday 1 was not only their first EURO finals victory but also the first time they had scored three goals in a major tournament encounter since a famous 3-2 victory over West Germany at the 1978 World Cup in Argentina.

• Austria had failed to score in their last three matches before UEFA EURO 2020. They warmed up for the tournament with a 1-0 defeat by England in Middlesbrough on 2 June and a 0-0 draw against Slovakia in Vienna four days later. That clean sheet is their only one in eight matches.

• Stefan Lainer became the first player in an Austria starting XI to score at the EURO finals with his opening volley against North Macedonia. Four of the country's five goals at the tournament have now been scored by substitutes, Michael Gregoritsch and Marko Arnautović both subsequently finding the net on Matchday 1 after being introduced from the bench.

• Aleksandar Dragović, Austria's only ever-present in the UEFA EURO 2020 qualifiers, became just the fourth Austrian international to reach 90 caps when he played against England earlier this month. Only one, Andreas Herzog, has gone on to complete the century.

• Dragović is one of eight members of Austria's UEFA EURO 2020 squad who competed in France five years ago. The others are David Alaba, Arnautović, Julian Baumgartlinger, Martin Hinteregger, Stefan Ilsanker, Marcel Sabitzer and Alessandro Schöpf, who scored the team's only goal at those finals, against Iceland.

• Arnautović holds the Austrian record for appearances in EURO matches, qualifiers included, of 30, and now needs one more goal to match Toni Polster's national high in the competition of 15.

• No fewer than 21 of the 26 players in Franco Foda's squad played for German Bundesliga clubs in 2020/21. The only one to win silverware was Alaba, who captured a ninth successive league title with Bayern München in his final season at the club before leaving for Real Madrid.

• One of the two home-based players in the squad, Andreas Ulmer, also enjoyed repeat domestic success by winning the Austrian Bundesliga title for the 11th time – and eighth in a row – with Salzburg, to which he added a third successive domestic cup triumph – and eighth in all.

• There was also club success elsewhere in 2020/21 for midfielder Louis Schaub, a Swiss Cup winner with Luzern, and goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann, who achieved promotion to the English Premier League with Watford. The latter made his debut for Austria in that pre-tournament friendly against England and kept his place for the EURO opener against North Macedonia.

Head coach Only this chapter

Frank de Boer

Date of birth: 15 May 1970
Nationality: Dutch
Playing career: Ajax, Barcelona, Galatasaray, Rangers, Al-Rayyan, Al-Shamal
Coaching career: Ajax (youth), Netherlands (assistant), Ajax, Internazionale, Crystal Palace, Atlanta United, Netherlands

• Started as a left-back but matured into a dominant centre-half at Ajax, where he came through the ranks along with his twin Ronald. Broke into the first team aged 18, winning the first of five Eredivisie titles in 1990.

• Part of the team that lifted the 1992 UEFA Cup, he helped Ajax beat AC Milan in the 1995 UEFA Champions League final in Vienna, adding the UEFA Super Cup and European/South American Cup later that year. Won the domestic double in 1997/98, his last full season with Ajax before moving to Barcelona with Ronald. A Liga title followed in 1999 and De Boer made over 200 appearances for the Catalan giants.

• Moved to Galatasaray in summer 2003, signing for Rangers the following January. Hung up his boots in 2006 after a spell in Qatar, ending a career that also brought 112 Netherlands caps. De Boer was in the Oranje side that reached the 1998 FIFA World Cup and UEFA EURO 2000 semi-finals, missing two penalties in a defeat by Italy in the latter.

• Returned to Ajax as a youth coach in 2007 and the following year was appointed assistant to Bert van Marwijk with the senior national side, who reached the 2010 World Cup final. Took over as Ajax head coach in December 2010, winning the club's first league title since 2004 at the end of that campaign. In 2014 he became the first coach to win four successive Eredivisie crowns, surpassing the record of Rinus Michels and Louis van Gaal.

• Went on to have short spells in charge of Inter and Crystal Palace before 18 months in America with Major League Soccer side Atlanta United. In September 2020, De Boer succeeded Ronald Koeman as Netherlands coach.


Franco Foda

Date of birth: 23 April 1966
Nationality: German
Playing career: Kaiserslautern (twice), Arminia Bielefeld, Saarbrücken, Bayer Leverkusen, Stuttgart, Basel, Sturm Graz
Coaching career: Sturm Graz (three times), Kaiserslautern, Austria

• Born in Mainz to a German mother and Italian father, Foda started his playing career at Weisenau and joined Mainz, then in the third tier, in his youth. As a professional he played in 321 German Bundesliga games, winning the German Cup with both Kaiserslautern and Leverkusen.

• In 1987, the defender was called up by the West German national team for a South America tour. He played against Argentina and Brazil, his only two international caps.

• Foda ended his career with a highly successful four-year spell at Austrian club Sturm Graz, with whom he won three league titles and also reached the UEFA Champions League group stage three years running.

• After hanging up his boots, Foda remained in Styria and moved into coaching, initially as an assistant to the experienced Ivan Osim before taking over as Sturm's head coach in 2002.

• He would spend the best part of the next decade and a half at Sturm, punctuating his tenure only with a single season back in Germany with Kaiserslautern (2012/13) after leading Sturm to victories in the 2009/10 Austrian Cup and the following season's Bundesliga. In October 2017 he was appointed Marcel Koller's successor as head coach of the Austrian national team, taking over the reins in January 2018.

Competition facts Only this chapter

UEFA European Football Championship final tournament: Did you know?

• Spain (1964, 2008, 2012) and Germany (1972, 1980 – both as West Germany – 1996) are the competition's most successful sides having lifted the trophy three times each. Only France (1984, 2000) have also triumphed more than once.

• Only three teams have ever won the UEFA European Championship on home soil: Spain (1964), Italy (1968) and France (1984).

• In 2012 Spain became the first nation to retain the Henri Delaunay Cup, having also won in 2008. The Soviet Union (1960, 1964) and West Germany (1972, 1976) returned to the final as holders only to lose.

• Eight players have appeared in two victorious finals – Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Andrés Iniesta, Xavi Hernández, Cesc Fàbregas and David Silva all started Spain's triumphs in 2008 and 2012, with Fernando Torres starting in 2008 and coming on four years later and Xabi Alonso coming on in the 2008 final and starting in 2012. Rainer Bonhof twice picked up a winners' medal with West Germany (1972, 1980) but did not play in either tournament.

• Berti Vogts was a winner as a player with West Germany in 1972 and as Germany coach in 1996, making him the only man to triumph in both roles.

• Since 1980, when the final tournament expanded to become an eight-team event, the hosts or co-hosts have only failed to reach the semi-finals – or better – four times: Italy (1980), Belgium (2000), Austria and Switzerland (2008) and Poland and Ukraine (2012).

• UEFA EURO 2020 is Germany's 13th successive UEFA European Championship final tournament – they last missed out as West Germany in 1968.

• Germany are appearing in the finals for the 13th time, one more than Russia (includes appearances as USSR). This is the 11th tournament for Spain.

• Eight teams have qualified for the finals with a perfect record, including Belgium and Italy this time round. The others are France (1992 and 2004), the Czech Republic (2000), Spain and Germany (2012) and England (2016).

• The Netherlands' 6-1 defeat of Yugoslavia in the UEFA EURO 2000 quarter-finals is the biggest win in a final tournament. Three games have finished 5-0, most recently Sweden's 2004 defeat of Bulgaria.

• Three teams have held the UEFA European Championship and FIFA World Cup at the same time. West Germany won the European title in 1972 and added the world crown two years later, while France claimed the 1998 World Cup and UEFA EURO 2000 and Spain triumphed at UEFA EURO 2008 and the 2010 World Cup. Spain's 2012 EURO victory made them the first country to win three major tournaments in a row; West Germany were within a shoot-out of achieving the feat before their 1976 loss to Czechoslovakia.

• For West Germany, Sepp Maier, Franz Beckenbauer, Hans-Georg Schwarzenbeck, Paul Breitner, Uli Hoeness and Gerd Müller played in both those finals, while Fabien Barthez, Marcel Desailly, Bixente Lizarazu, Lilian Thuram, Didier Deschamps, Youri Djorkaeff, Patrick Vieira, Zinédine Zidane and Christophe Dugarry achieved the feat for France.

• Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Carles Puyol, Joan Capdevila, Andrés Iniesta, Xavi Hernández, Cesc Fàbregas, Xabi Alonso and Fernando Torres played in Spain's 2008 EURO final win and the 2010 World Cup success. Casillas, Ramos, Iniesta, Xavi, Fàbregas, Alonso and Torres appeared in all three of Spain's final wins between 2008 and 2012.

• In addition to the 24 players mentioned above, Dino Zoff (Italy 1968, 1982) and Germany's Thomas Hässler and Jürgen Klinsmann (1990, 1996) also featured in two final triumphs.

• In 2016 Portugal's Real Madrid pair Pepe and Cristiano Ronaldo joined a small group of players to have appeared in European Cup and UEFA European Championship final victories in the same year. Luis Suárez achieved the feat with Internazionale Milano and Spain in 1964, while in 1988 PSV Eindhoven quartet Hans van Breucklen, Ronald Koeman, Barry van Aerle and Gerald Vanenburg were all in the victorious Netherlands side. In 2012 Fernando Torres and Juan Mata both appeared in final wins for Chelsea and Spain.

• Wim Kieft and Nicolas Anelka narrowly missed out on this club. A European Champion Clubs' Cup finalist with PSV in 1988, Kieft was an unused substitute in the Netherlands' European Championship triumph, while Anelka was similarly thwarted with France in 2000 after appearing in Real Madrid's UEFA Champions League final. Anelka's Madrid team-mate Christian Karembeu holds the unique position of being an unused substitute in European Cup and European Championship final victories in the same year.

• In 2008 Germany's Michael Ballack, then with Chelsea, became the first player to appear in European Cup and EURO final defeats in the same year.

• Four players have followed European Cup final defeat with EURO victory in the same year: Ignacio Zoco and Amancio Amaro (1964, Real Madrid and Spain) and Manny Kaltz and Horst Hrubesch (1980, Hamburg and West Germany).

• Gábor Király is the oldest player to have appeared in a UEFA European Championship finals; he was aged 40 years 86 days in Hungary's 4-0 loss against Belgium at UEFA EURO 2016.

• England's Jude Bellingham is the youngest player to have featured; he was 17 years and 349 days when he came on as a substitute against Croatia on Matchday 1 of UEFA EURO 2020.

• Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to appear, and score, in five EUROs with his two goals against Hungary on Matchday 1 at UEFA EURO 2020. Twenty-one players have appeared in four final tournaments: Lothar Matthäus, Peter Schmeichel, Alessandro Del Piero, Edwin van der Sar, Lilian Thuram, Olof Mellberg, Gianluigi Buffon, Petr Čech, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Andreas Isaksson, Kim Källström, Jaroslav Plašil, Lukas Podolski, Tomáš Rosický, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Darijo Srna, Giorgio Chiellini, Sebastian Larsson, Luka Modrić, João Moutinho and Pepe.

• Austria's Ivica Vastic is the oldest player to have scored, having found the net in a 1-1 draw against Poland at UEFA EURO 2008 aged 38 years 257 days.

• Johan Vonlanthen was 18 years 141 days old when scoring in Switzerland's 3-1 defeat by France at UEFA EURO 2004, making him the youngest player to have struck at the finals.

• Russia's Dmitri Kirichenko scored the fastest goal in a UEFA European Championship; his effort against Greece at UEFA EURO 2004 was timed at 67 seconds.

• There have been eight hat-tricks in a final tournament: Dieter Müller (1976), Klaus Allofs (1980), Michel Platini (1984, twice), Marco van Basten (1988), Sérgio Conceição (2000), Patrick Kluivert (2000) and David Villa (2008).

:: 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 was 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.
