UEFA EURO 2020: meet the qualified teams

The 20 teams that qualified via the groups will be joined by the four play-off winners.

Group A


Group H record: P10 W7 D2 L1 F18 A3
Qualifying top scorer: Cenk Tosun (5)
UEFA EURO best: semi-finals (2008)
UEFA EURO 2016: group stage

Highlights: Turkey 2-0 France

Highlights: Turkey 2-0 France

Coach: Şenol Güneş
A six-time title-winning goalkeeper for Trabzonspor and Turkey, Güneş coached his country to third place at their only recent FIFA World Cup in 2002. He won two championships in charge of Beşiktaş, prior to reprising his Turkey role in 2019.

Key player: Cenk Tosun
Güneş knows how to get the best out of Turkey’s attacking focal point, having been the striker’s boss during a successful collaboration at Beşiktaş. Not outstandingly quick or giant of stature, but a hard worker and a thoroughbred finisher.

One to watch: Burak Yılmaz
The team’s elder statesman at 35, and Güneş’s first-choice striker. Turkey’s second-highest international scorer has managed a goal every two games throughout his career, and is still banging them in at LOSC Lille.

Did you know?
Turkey have qualified for five of the last seven EUROs, having made it to the finals for the first time in 1996.

Highlights: Italy 9-1 Armenia

Coach: Roberto Mancini
One of the best forward players of his generation, though never that lucky with the Azzurri, Mancini is eager to sparkle as an international coach after winning club trophies in Italy, England and Turkey.

Key player: Marco Verratti
Like his coach, the midfielder is yet to replicate his club form with the national team. Mancini’s possession-based football, however, seems just perfect for the Paris man.

One to watch: Gianluigi Donnarumma
At 21, goalkeeper Donnarumma is already a veteran, having been playing first-team football for years, but he has big gloves to fill as he looks to replace Gianluigi Buffon.

Did you know?
Italy flawless EURO qualifying campaign ended with a 9-1 win against Armenia in Palermo. It was their national-record 11th successive victory, and gave them ten wins in a calendar year for the first time. One more goal and it would also have matched their biggest win ever: a 9-0 against the United States in 1948.
