  • Spain are the first nation to hold the Women's U17 and U19 titles at the same time since Germany won the first #WU17EURO in 2008 while also #WU19EURO champions.
  • Germany reached their tenth semi-final in 11 editions of this competition.
  • Spain reached their ninth final and fifth in a row (every eight-team tournament since the first in 2013/14). Only Germany in senior Women's EURO (six) have a longer run of final appearances in any UEFA national-team competition.
  • Finland were only the second finals debutants to make it to the last four since it became an eight-team competition in 2013/14, after Italy in that first year.
  • Germany's Shekiera Martinez's nine goals are not just a record for a women's U17 tournament but equals the record for any UEFA finals.
  • Martinez became the first player to score in all three group games in a #WU17EURO finals
  • In qualifying Spain's Claudia Pina (who did not play in the finals due to injury) reached 20 career goals in this competition, equalling Vivianne Miedema's record.
  • Finland, on their debut EURO qualification, have reached their first FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup.
  • Germany have kept up their record of qualifying for all six editions of the World Cup, a feat shared by Ghana, Japan, New Zealand and holders North Korea (though only Germany have also never missed a senior or U-20 World Cup).
