    Match background Only this chapter

    Germany and Serbia are set to meet in the UEFA European Under-21 Championship final tournament for the third time, with history suggesting a tight contest at the Stadio Nereo Rocco in Trieste.

    • Holders Germany kicked off the finals with a 3-1 defeat of Denmark, Marco Richter scoring in either half with Luca Waldschmidt adding the third. Serbia, meanwhile, lost their opening fixture 2-0 to debutants Austria, ending with ten men after Vukašin Jovanović's 75th-minute red card.

    Previous meetings
    • Both the countries' previous competitive meetings came in the group stage. Germany's Eugen Polanski scored the only goal when the teams met on matchday one of the 2006 finals, although it was Serbia and Montenegro, as they were then, who went on to the knockout stages after finishing as Group A runners-up to France; Germany finished fourth in the section on a three-way head-to-head.

    • The points were shared when the teams met in Prague on matchday one at the 2015 competition, both goals coming in the first 17 minutes. Filip Djuričić gave Serbia an eighth-minute lead, Emre Can levelling nine minutes later. This time it was Germany who progressed to the semi-finals in second place behind Denmark; Serbia finished fourth, with the point from that draw their sole return of the finals.

    Highlights: Germany 3-1 Denmark

    • Markus Schubert was in the Germany side that beat Serbia 2-0 in the European U19 Championship elite round in March 2017. Luka Adžić, Uroš Račić, Igor Zlatanović, plus substitute Aleksa Terzić, featured for Serbia.

    • Luka Jović was on target in Serbia's 2-2 group stage draw against Germany at the 2014 U19 EURO. Jovanović, Srdjan Babić, Andrija Živković and Danilo Pantić also featured with Milan Gajić an unused substitute; Levin Öztunalı was in the Germany side.

    • Ivan Šaponjić scored for a Serbia side also including Jović in a 1-1 draw against Germany in the 2014 European U17 Championship elite round. Benjamin Henrichs played for Germany.

    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.

    • 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.

    Waldschmidt on Germany's winning start

    • 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 qualifying fixtures, the matchday one win against Denmark extending their unbeaten competitive run to eight games (W7 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, Mahmoud Dahoud and Nadiem Amiri. Anton was a late replacement for Jonathan Tah.

    • 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.

    Highlights: Serbia 0-2 Austria

    Serbia
    • Serbia have qualified for the third tournament in a row, and the seventh time for an eight or 12-team finals. Their last three finals campaigns – in 2009, 2015 and 2017 – all ended winless in the group stage.

    • Two years ago in Poland, Serbia finished third in Group B behind Spain and Portugal, picking up one point from their three matches. The loss to Austria on matchday one means they are without a win in their last 11 games in the final tournament (D4 L7).

    • They were runners-up in 2004 and semi-finalists in 2006, both as Serbia and Montenegro, and 2007 runners-up as Serbia. As Yugoslavia they won the 1978 final and were runners-up in 1990, also reaching the last four in 1980 and 1984.

    • Serbia were one of five teams to qualify unbeaten for the 2019 finals, finishing with 26 points – four clear of Austria – at the top of Group 7 after eight wins and two draws in their ten fixtures. Their last two qualifiers having both finished goalless, the matchday one has extended their scoreless run in competitive football to 272 minutes.

    Links and trivia
    • Jović was at Eintracht Frankfurt between 2017 and 4 June 2019, when he signed a six-year contract at Real Madrid. The Serbian forward scored 25 goals in 54 Bundesliga appearances for the club, including 17 in 2018/19 when he added another ten in Eintracht's run to the UEFA Europa League semi-finals.

    • Tah and Lukas Klostermann both played 90 minutes in Germany's 2-0 UEFA EURO 2020 qualifying win away to Belarus on 8 June.

    • Nikola Milenković and Jović started both of Serbia's recent UEFA EURO 2020 qualifiers, against Ukraine (0-5 away) and Lithuania (4-1 home), Jović scoring in the latter. Also involved against Lithuania were Saša Lukić and substitute Andrija Živković.

    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.

    Goran Djorović

    Date of birth: 11 November 1971
    Nationality: Serbian
    Playing career: Priština, Crvena zvezda, Celta Vigo, Deportivo La Coruña, Elche (loan)
    Coaching career: Serbia U21

    • Born in Pristina, Djorović initially played at his local team before signing for Crvena zvezda in 1993; made exactly 100 league appearances for the Belgrade club, winning a championship and three domestic cups. Aged 26, he opted to try his luck in Spain with Celta Vigo.

    • A Celta player between 1997 and 2001, with his brother Zoran also at the club, Djorović made more than a century of appearances, subsequently switching to Galician rivals Deportivo to link up again with coach Javier Irureta, who had previously brought him to Celta.

    • A series of injuries severely hampered Djorović while at Deportivo, and he barely figured before joining second division Elche on loan in 2003/04. Retired shortly after being released by Depor in summer 2004.

    • Djorović made his Yugoslavia debut in a 2-0 friendly defeat by Brazil in December 1994 and finished his international career in 2001 with 49 caps, playing every match at the 1998 FIFA World Cup as Yugoslavia reached the last 16 and also being part of the UEFA EURO 2000 squad.

    • Given responsibility for Serbia's Under-21 side in August 2017, Djorović steered the team through qualifying unbeaten to book a place in the 2019 UEFA European Championship.

    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.
