• Georgia qualified for the 2013 finals – their sole previous U19 appearance.
• England are in the finals for the second season running; before 2016, they had sat out three successive tournaments.
• Bulgaria have reached the finals for the third time, qualifying from a section that included France – meaning the holders miss out for a second year in a row after 2015 champions Spain failed to make the 2016 finals.
• The Czech Republic are in the finals for the first time since finishing runners-up to Spain in 2011.
• Germany, winners in 2008 and 2014, are the only former winners involved in this summer's tournament.
• The Netherlands' four previous final tournament appearances – all from 2010 onwards – ended at the group stage.
• This will be Portugal's tenth finals outing; they have contested the semi-finals or better in three of the last four seasons.
• Sweden have never qualified before, though they did get to the European U17 Championship semi-finals in 2013 and the quarter-finals last year.
