Head coach Only this chapter

Bernd Storck

Date of birth: 25 January 1963
Nationality: German
Playing career: VfL Bochum 1848, Borussia Dortmund
Coaching career: VfB Stuttgart (assistant), Hertha BSC Berlin (assistant), VfL Wolfsburg (assistant), FK Partizan (assistant), Borussia Dortmund (assistant), FC Almaty, Kazakhstan Under-21s, Kazakhstan, Olympiacos FC (youth), Hungary Under-20s, Hungary

• Made his Bundesliga debut for Bochum at the age of 19 and spent two seasons at the club before joining local rivals Dortmund in 1983. A regular in the Dortmund defence for the next six seasons, he helped the club to victory in the German Cup in his final campaign, 1988/89; ended his playing career with eight goals in 171 Bundesliga appearances.

• Joined forces with leading German coach Jürgen Röber and acted as his assistant at Stuttgart, Hertha, Wolfsburg, Partizan and Dortmund. Moved abroad midway through 2008 to take charge of Kazakh top-flight club Almaty; was also appointed simultaneously as the Kazakhstan U21 coach.

• Named the Kazakhstan senior team's interim coach following the dismissal of Dutchman Arno Pijpers in autumn 2008. His first game in charge was a 5-1 defeat by England at Wembley in a 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifier, but he was subsequently installed as the permanent head coach.

• However, Storck was sacked in October 2010 after presiding over four losses at the start of UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying and resurfaced at Olympiacos' youth team, taking charge for the inaugural UEFA Youth League group stage in 2013/14.

• In July 2015 he took charge of Hungary, having led the national side at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand the previous month, and promptly ended their 44-year absence from the UEFA European Championship thanks to a play-off defeat of Norway. Took them into the last 16 at the finals in France, where they were comfortably beaten by Belgium.



Lars Olsen

Date of birth: 2 February 1961
Nationality: Danish
Playing career: Glostrup IF, Køge BK, Brøndby IF (twice), Trabzonspor AŞ, RFC Seraing, FC Basel 1893
Coaching career: Randers FC, Odense BK, Faroe Islands

• Enjoyed an illustrious playing career as a central defender, winning five Danish titles in a six-year spell at Brøndby between 1985 and 1991.

• Allegedly drove from Turkey to Scandinavia when he learned of his country's belated call-up to EURO '92. His passion and leadership – he played every minute in Sweden – helped inspire Denmark to the most unlikely of triumphs. He ended his career with 84 caps, a record 69 as captain.

• Learned his coaching craft with Brøndby, taking charge at various youth and reserve levels after finishing his playing days at the club in 1996, before accepting his first senior job with newly formed Randers in 2003. Guided the team into the Danish Super League in 2004 but could not help maintain their elite status, suffering immediate relegation.

• Steered second-division Randers to a surprise 2006 Danish Cup success, beating Esbjerg fB in the final, while also securing a return to the top flight. Moved to Odense in summer 2007, leading his new side to a fourth-place finish in his first term. Consecutive runners-up spots followed in 2008/09 and 2009/10 before he departed in September 2010.

• Appointed coach of the Faroe Islands in November 2011, his team were unable to register a win as they came bottom of 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying Group C, earning their only point in a 1-1 home draw with Kazakhstan. However, UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying featured two high points in the shape of home and away wins against the 2004 champions Greece.

Competition facts Only this chapter

The Week of Football concept enables fans around the world to enjoy the very best action from the European Qualifiers – which will determine UEFA's representatives at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup comprises nine groups of six teams, with matches played on a home-and-away basis.

Qualifying takes place under the 'Week of Football' concept, introduced ahead of the UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying campaign, in which games are spread out from Thursday to Tuesday, shining the spotlight on more teams on the road to the finals in Russia. Moreover, thanks to the Week of Football, at least 43% of matches will be played on weekends, giving fans a better chance to follow the action on television, in the stadiums and on

Kick-off times will be set mainly at 18:00CET and 20:45CET on Saturdays and Sundays and at 20:45CET for Thursdays, Fridays, Mondays and Tuesdays. In double-header matchweeks, sides will play on Thursday/Sunday, Friday/Monday or Saturday/Tuesday. Each day of the Week of Football will feature eight to ten games.

The nine group winners will qualify directly for the final tournament. The eight best runners-up will contest play-offs to decide the last four qualifiers for the finals.

The 13 qualifiers then join hosts Russia in the finals to make it 14 UEFA member associations represented.

How qualification works

The other confederations have the following qualifying berths:

Africa: 5
Asia: 4.5
North and Central America and Caribbean: 3.5
Oceania: 0.5
South America: 4.5
