Other statistics

Three teams won the UEFA European Championships at home: Spain (1964), Italy (1968) and France (1984).
In 2012 Spain became the first nation to win the Henri Delaunay Cup for two consecutive editions, after their triumph in the 2008 edition.
Eight players have played in two finals won: Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Andrés Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez, Cesc Fàbregas, David Silva (all starters in the 2008 and 2012 triumphs), Fernando Torres (owner in 2008 and who took over in 2012) and Xabi Alonso (who came off the bench in 2008 and started in 2012).
Berti Vogts is the only one to have won a EURO both as a footballer (with West Germany in 1972) and as a coach (with Germany in 1996).
Three teams were simultaneously winners of the UEFA European Championships and the FIFA World Cup: West Germany (EURO 1972, World Cup 1974), France (World Cup 1998, UEFA EURO 2000) and Spain (UEFA EURO 2008, World Cup 2010, UEFA EURO 2012).
Nine players won the European Cup/UEFA Champions League and EURO in the same summer:
Luis Suarez (Inter and Spain, 1964)
Ronald Koeman (PSV and Holland, 1988)
Barry van Aerle (PSV and Netherlands, 1988)
Hans van Breucklen (PSV and Netherlands, 1988)
Gerald Vanenburg (PSV and Holland, 1988)
Juan Mata (Chelsea and Spain, 2012)
Fernando Torres (Chelsea and Spain, 2012)
Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid and Portugal, 2016)
Pepe (Real Madrid and Portugal, 2016)
Wim Kieft and Nicolas Anelka almost do not fall into this exclusive club; As European champions with PSV, Kieft remained on the bench with holland in the 1988 final, as did Anelka who, as the winner of the UEFA Champions League in 2000 with Real Madrid, remained on the bench in the final won by France at UEFA EURO 2000. The two Frenchmen, Anelka and Real’s team-mate Christian Karembeu, have the unique record of being on the bench in the same summer in both the final won by their club in the European Cup and in the one won by the national team in the European Championships.
In 2008, Michael Ballack, then a Chelsea player, became the first player to lose the European Cup final and the EURO final in the same year.
Four players lost a European Cup final and then won the EURO final in the same year: Ignacio Zoco and Amancio Amaro (1964, Real Madrid and Spain) and Manny Kaltz and Horst Hrubesch (1980, Hamburg and West Germany).
