Austria, led by the experienced Ralph Rangnick since May 2022, secured their place in the final stage alongside Belgium with an important away win over Azerbaijan on October 16. This marks Austria’s third consecutive EURO appearance and fourth overall. Notably, Austria co-hosted the final stage with Switzerland in 2008. With the 2024 tournament taking place in Germany, it’s noteworthy that Rangnick, a German national, coaches the Austrian team, which predominantly comprises players from the German Bundesliga.


In February 2023, Domenico Tedesco succeeded Roberto Martinez as Belgium’s head coach. Securing their spot in their third consecutive EURO tournament, and their first under Tedesco, Belgium defeated Austria, their main Group F rival, on October 13, 2023, with a score of 3-2. Despite reaching the quarter-finals in the last two EURO tournaments, Belgium faced disappointment in the 2022 World Cup, failing to progress past the group stage. Belgium’s most notable EURO achievement remains their runner-up finish in 1980.


In 2017, Zlatko Dalic assumed leadership of the Croatian national team, becoming renowned as their most accomplished coach to date. Croatia has secured their spot in the EURO final stage for the sixth consecutive time, with Dalic guiding them to their second qualification. The team earned their ticket to Germany in the final round, clinching a narrow victory over Armenia. Despite reaching the round of 16 in the last two EURO tournaments, Croatia aims to surpass this hurdle in the upcoming competition. This tournament will also mark the ninth major competition appearance for team captain Luka Modric.


Ivan Hašek, a former midfielder for Czechoslovakia, has a varied coaching resume that includes stints in France, Japan, and the UAE, as well as managing the national teams of Gabon and Lebanon.

Notably, in 1976, the Czechoslovakian team, featuring the iconic Antonín Panenka, won the championship.


Under the leadership of Kasper Hjulmand since 2020, Denmark’s journey has been marked by ups and downs. Despite starting their qualifying campaign with a surprising loss to Kazakhstan, they rebounded to secure consecutive EURO appearances for the first time since 2004. At EURO 2020, Hjulmand guided the team to the semi-finals, their best performance since their historic victory in 1992.


Since September 2016, Gareth Southgate has been in charge of the England national team. Their qualification for the EURO finals in Germany marked their ninth appearance in the last ten tournaments, clinched after a 3-1 victory over Italy at Wembley Stadium. With hopes of progressing further, Southgate aims to lead his team beyond their EURO 2020 final defeat to Italy on penalties, which took place at the same venue.


Didier Deschamps holds a revered position in French football lore, revered as both a player and a coach. He captained the French national team to victory in the 1998 FIFA World Cup and EURO 2000 before assuming the role of head coach, leading them to clinch the 2018 World Cup and reaching the finals of EURO 2016 and the 2022 World Cup. France, boasting two EURO titles, has maintained an unbroken streak of qualifying for final tournaments since 1988. Despite their loss to Portugal in the EURO 2016 final, under Deschamps’ guidance since 2012, the team has remained formidable. Their journey to Germany was cemented on October 13 with a triumphant 2-1 victory over the Netherlands.


Former French national team right-back and five-time German champion with Bayern Munich, Willy Sagnol, transitioned into coaching and took over as the head coach of the Georgian national team in 2021. Under his leadership, Georgia made its debut appearance in a major international tournament. Finishing fourth in Group A, which comprised five teams, Georgia secured positive outcomes against Scotland, Norway, and Cyprus. However, they suffered a significant setback with a 1-7 defeat against Spain at home. Despite challenges, Georgia made history by clinching their first major tournament qualification through playoffs, where they defeated Luxembourg and Greece.


Julian Nagelsmann has risen to prominence as one of football’s most coveted coaches, showcasing his managerial prowess with successful stints at Hoffenheim and Leipzig in the German Bundesliga. In September, Nagelsmann was appointed head coach of the German national team.

As hosts of EURO 2024, Germany secured automatic qualification to the final stage of the tournament.


Marco Rossi, previously a player who achieved success with Sampdoria, has been at the helm of the Hungarian national team since 2018. After a 44-year absence from the final stages of the EURO tournament, spanning from 1972 to 2016, Hungary has qualified three times consecutively.

Ronald Koeman, the team’s head coach and celebrated as one of the finest attacking central defenders in history, played a crucial role in the Netherlands’ journey to winning EURO 1988. The Dutch secured their spot in the final stage with a home win against Ireland. Koeman, leading the team for the second time, previously tasted EURO glory as a player in 1988. Under his leadership, the Oranje reached the UEFA Nations League final in 2019 and claimed bronze in 2023.


Michal Probierz assumed leadership of the national team in September 2023, following a prosperous tenure with the youth squad. Poland claimed the third spot in Group D, trailing Albania and the Czech Republic, necessitating their journey to a fifth consecutive EURO through playoffs. Guided by Michal Probierz, the team navigated past Estonia with ease in the semifinals but encountered tense moments in the pivotal match against Wales. Ultimately, they clinched victory in a nerve-wracking penalty shootout after 120 scoreless minutes in Cardiff.


After assuming command in January 2023 following his tenure with Belgium, Roberto Martinez now leads Portugal’s national team.

Despite missing out on EURO 2020, Romania secured their place in EURO 2024 by defeating Israel in Hungary. With aspirations to emulate their achievement in 2000, when they advanced from a challenging group that included Portugal, England, and Germany, Romania aims to make an impact in the tournament.


Since joining the national team in May 2019, Steve Clarke had spells with West Bromwich Albion and Reading.

Their qualification for the final stage of the EURO for the third consecutive time was sealed with a 4-2 victory over Iceland at home. Although Slovakia remained in the third group during EURO 2020, their notable achievement dates back to 1976 when they clinched the championship as part of Czechoslovakia. Their strongest showing as Slovakia occurred in 2016 when they advanced to the Round of 16, eventually falling to Germany.


Matjaž Kek has taken charge of the Slovenian national team for the second time, leading them through an impressive qualifying campaign.

This marks Slovenia’s fourth appearance in a major tournament and their first since the 2010 FIFA World Cup. However, they have yet to progress beyond the group stage in previous tournaments.


Luis de la Fuente took the helm of Spain’s national team in December 2022 after guiding the U19, U21, and U23 squads. Securing victory in Group A, Spain has frequented the EURO final stages almost as much as Germany. Their passage to Germany was clinched with a slender win over Norway in Oslo on October 15. Under Luis de la Fuente’s leadership, Spain is eyeing a historic fourth EURO triumph, currently tied with Germany at the top in this regard.


Murat Yakin, once a player for Switzerland at EURO 2004, now takes on the role of coach, leading the team to the European Championship two decades later.
