    Match background Only this chapter

    For the third UEFA European Under-21 Championship running, Germany and Denmark meet in the group stage – with recent history suggesting a tough night for the Danes.

    • Germany, the reigning champions, won both of those games 3-0 and will be looking for a positive start to their trophy defence in Udine.

    Previous meetings
    • Two years ago, second-half goals from Davie Selke, Marc-Oliver Kempf and Nadiem Amiri gave Germany a 3-0 matchday two victory against Denmark in Krakow with Mahmoud Dahoud and substitute Levin Öztunalı also in the victorious side. That result proved crucial in taking the eventual winners through as Group C runners-up behind Italy; Denmark finished third in the section.

    • Three-nil was also the score in Prague in 2015, also on matchday two; Kevin Volland scored twice and Matthias Ginter once, all the goals coming in a 22-minute period either side of half-time. Then, however, Denmark finished top of the section with Germany second, although both sides were eliminated in the semi-finals.

    U21 EURO 2019: Guide to the host cities

    • Germany have won the last four fixtures between the sides having also been victorious in two friendlies, most recently a 2-1 success in September 2015; Casper Nielsen's goal in that game is the only one Denmark have managed in that four-match sequence, with 12 conceded.

    • Denmark have not avoided defeat against Germany since a 2-2 friendly draw in November 2000.

    • The teams' only other competitive fixtures came in the 1994 preliminaries, when each recorded an away win. Christian Ziege's two goals helped Germany to a 4-1 success in Denmark, who were 1-0 victors in their away game.

    • A Germany side featuring Öztunalı were 4-0 winners against Denmark, for whom Jannik Pohl was a second-half substitute, in the elite round of their victorious European U19 Championship campaign in June 2014.

    Form guide
    Germany
    • Germany were champions in 2017, their second U21 title following their 2009 success in Sweden. Two years ago in Poland, they finished second in Group C, qualifying for the semi-finals as the best runners-up over the three sections; they beat England 4-3 on penalties in the last four after a 2-2 draw before a Mitchell Weiser goal earned a 1-0 final win against Spain.

    Meet the teams: Germany

    • This is the eighth time Germany have qualified for an eight or 12-team final tournament. Aside from their two titles, they were semi-finalists in 2015 and quarter-finalists in 1998. They also reached the last eight in 1990, 1992 and 1996.

    • As West Germany, they were runners-up to England in 1982.

    • Germany qualified for these finals as Group 5 winners, picking up 25 points from their ten fixtures (W8 D1 L1) and scoring 33 goals – the most of any of the 11 qualified teams, though non-qualifiers Portugal matched that figure. Germany won their last three fixtures, and are unbeaten in seven competitive games (W6 D1).

    • A 1-0 loss against Italy on matchday three in 2017 ended Germany's six-match unbeaten run in the final tournament group stage (W4 D2).

    • Four members of Germany's squad were in the victorious 2017 party; Öztunalı, Waldemar Anton, Dahoud and Amiri. Anton was a late replacement for Jonathan Tah.

    Under-21 rewind: Schweinsteiger on the mark for Germany

    • Öztunalı was also part of the victorious Germany side at the 2014 European U19 Championship in Hungary.

    • Lukas Nmecha scored England's winner in both the semi-final and the final at the 2017 European U19 Championship; having switched his international allegiance, the Hamburg-born striker made his Germany U21 debut against England in March.

    • Öztunalı was also in Germany's 2014 European U19 Championship-winning squad.

    Denmark
    • This is Denmark's third successive U21 final tournament, and a fifth participation in the eight or 12-team finals. They were eliminated in the group stage in 2006, 2011 on home soil and 2017, but did reach the semi-finals in 2015, losing 4-1 to eventual champions Sweden.

    • Two years ago in Poland, the Danes finished third in Group C behind Italy and eventual champions Germany having collected three points from their three games (W1 L2).

    Denmark in focus

    • Denmark have therefore won four of their 12 group stage games in the final tournament overall, losing six.

    • A place in the 2015 semi-finals equalled Denmark's most successful U21 campaign; they also reached the last four in 1992 having previously got to the quarter-finals in 1978 and 1986.

    • Denmark qualified as the winners of Group 3, with 23 points from ten fixtures (W7 D2 L1), and were unbeaten in their last five games (W3 D2). They scored 30 goals, including at least one in every game.

    Head coach Only this chapter

    Stefan Kuntz

    Date of birth: 30 October 1962
    Nationality: German
    Playing career: Borussia Neunkirchen (twice), Bochum (twice), Bayer Uerdingen, Kaiserslautern, Beşiktaş, Arminia Bielefeld
    Coaching career: Borussia Neunkirchen, Karlsruhe, Waldhof Mannheim, Ahlen, Germany U21

    • A former striker renowned for his clinical finishing, Kuntz stuck to his roots for the early part of his career and only left his local club Neunkirchen when he was 20 years old. At the time he made his Bundesliga debut for Bochum, Kuntz was also training to become a policeman.

    • He left Bochum as the Bundesliga's top goalscorer in 1985/86 (22 goals) and spent three years at Bayer Uerdingen before joining Kaiserslautern. Kuntz described his six seasons with the Red Devils as the most memorable of his career, winning the German Cup (1990) and the Bundesliga title (1991).

    • The first non-international to become Germany's footballer of the year, in 1991, he finally made his Germany debut aged 31. He played a significant role en route to winning EURO '96 in England, scoring in the semi-final against the hosts, and still holds Germany's record for most caps without defeat at 25 (W20 D5).

    • After spells at Beşiktaş and Bielefeld, he ended his professional career back at Bochum, but continued to play in the lower leagues. The first phase of his life as a coach proved brief; having studied sports management, Kuntz then tried his hand as general manager for Koblenz and Bochum before serving as Kaiserslautern's CEO for eight years.

    • In August 2016, he was suprisingly appointed as Germany's Under-21 coach and led the team to European glory at the finals in Poland the following summer.

    Niels Frederiksen

    Date of birth: 5 November 1970
    Nationality: Danish
    Coaching career: B93 (youth), Lyngby (youth), Lyngby, Esbjerg, Denmark U21

    • Frederiksen never played at any noticeable level but has been a coach since he was 17 – although it was not until 2011 that it became his full-time profession, when he left his high-profile job as vice president of a bank.

    • By then he had already been head coach at Lyngby for two years, having previously worked in the youth set-up at both B93 and then Lyngby. He was nominated as coach of the year at the Danish Football Awards in both 2010 and 2011.

    • Left Lyngby for Esbjerg in May 2013, taking the team into the UEFA Europa League group stage at the start of the following season by eliminating St-Étienne; Esbjerg won four of their six group games and were eventually knocked out by Fiorentina in the round of 32.

    • Relieved of his post in August 2015, he was later that month unveiled as Denmark's Under-21 coach, taking the side to the UEFA European Championship in both 2017 and 2019; also guided Denmark's Olympic side to the quarter-finals of the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro, where they were eliminated by Nigeria.

    • Having announced in January 2019 he would not be extending his contract with the U21s, Frederiksen was subsequently appointed as the new coach of Brøndby, whom he will join after the tournament in Italy.

    Final statistics

    • In 2007 the Netherlands became the first, and so far only, team to win the competition on home territory since the switch to a new format in 1994. Until then the final had been decided on a two-legged basis. Spain came closest in 1996, losing the final on penalties to Italy.

    • Since the 1992-94 change Italy have won four finals, the 2013 loss to Spain their first final reverse. The only other sides to have won it more than once are Spain (1998, 2011, 2013), Germany (2009, 2017) and the Netherlands (2006, 2007).

    • The 2013 edition was the highest-scoring single-match final as Thiago Alcántara's hat-trick helped Spain defeat Italy 4-2 in Jerusalem.

    • Seven red cards have been issued in single-match finals, most recently for Serbia's Aleksandar Kolarov in 2007.

    • Thiago's 2013 hat-trick was the first since 1994's move to a one-off game; Andrea Pirlo (Italy 2000), Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (Netherlands 2006) and Sandro Wagner (Germany 2009) have all scored twice in a one-off match. Prior to that Gary Owen (England 1982), Franck Sauzée (France 1988) and Andrei Sidelnikov (USSR 1990) had all scored twice in one leg of a final.

    • Vahid Halilhodžić (for Yugoslavia v East Germany 1978) and Pierre Littbarski (for West Germany v England 1982) are the other players to have scored a final hat-trick.

    • Since the single-match finals began three have ended in penalty shoot-outs, nine-man Italy triumphing 4-2 against Spain in 1996. The Czech Republic then prevailed 3-1 over France in 2002 and Sweden 4-3 against Portugal in 2015 following the competition's only two goalless finals.

    • Only the 1994 final has been decided in extra time, substitute Pierluigi Orlandini winning it for Italy against Portugal with the only goal in the 97th minute.

    • Ten players have won the European U21 title twice: Danny Thomas (England 1982, 1984), Dario Marcolin and Roberto Muzzi (Italy 1992, 1994), Fabio Cannavaro and Christian Panucci (Italy 1994, 1996), Kenneth Vermeer, Arnold Kruiswijk, Daniël de Ridder, Ron Vlaar and Haris Medunjanin (Netherlands 2006, 2007) and David de Gea, Thiago Alcántara, Martín Montoya, Iker Muniain and Diego Mariño (Spain 2011, 2013).

    • The fulcrum of Italy's 2006 FIFA World Cup-winning squad had also been involved in U21 final victories: Cannavaro (1994 and 1996), Filippo Inzaghi (1994), Francesco Totti and Alessandro Nesta (1996), Andrea Pirlo and Gennaro Gattuso (2000) and Marco Amelia, Daniele De Rossi, Alberto Gilardino and Andrea Barzagli (2004).

    • Germany's victorious 2014 World Cup squad included six members of the squad that lifted the 2009 U21 title in Sweden: Manuel Neuer, Benedikt Höwedes, Mats Hummels, Jérôme Boateng, Sami Khedira and Mesut Özil.

    • Laurent Blanc was the first player to achieve the treble of a U21 title (1988), a FIFA World Cup winners' medal (1998) and a UEFA European Championship victory (2000). Spain duo Juan Mata and Javi Martínez were the next players to do so after glory at the 2010 World Cup, U21s in Denmark in 2011 and UEFA EURO 2012.
