Longest winning runs in EURO finals history

Belgium and Italy could set a new record at UEFA EURO 2020 – they just have to reach the semi-finals and win every game en route.

Belgium and Italy could set a new winning sequence record at UEFA EURO 2020.

The longest run of UEFA European Championship victories – qualifying included – stands at 14 games. This was set by Joachim Löw's Germany, who won all ten of their UEFA EURO 2012 qualifiers as well as their first three group matches and their quarter-final at the tournament in Poland and Ukraine. They lost to Italy in the last four.

Belgium and Italy both reached UEFA EURO 2020 with unblemished records: ten wins out of ten. Five more wins in the finals (taking them to the semi-finals at least) will set a new record.
