This is a list of UEFA European Championship and qualifying match records. West Germany/Germany 10 (72, 1976, 1980, 1984, 1988, 1992, 1996, 2008, 2012, 2016) Portugal (7th), West Germany/Germany (1980, 1988, 1992, 1996, 2008, 2012, 2016). (1984, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, 2016).
The latest Europe's top football tournament is the 2016 edition which Germany hosted. The country has now won three times (the other two victories were by one-offs in 1936 and 1972), having been absent from the final stage since 1960.
Germany has played 51 matches in total, winning 30 and drawing 11. This puts them at an average of about 1.5 wins per match. They have never lost more than two games in a single tournament.
Their most successful season to date is probably 2008 when they won the European Championship under Jürgen Klinsmann. They also reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup that year. In 2012, Germany came third in the European Championships. Both tournaments were held in Poland and Ukraine.
There have been concerns over German football's competitiveness after losing several high-profile matches in recent years. However, Germany still dominates international club competition with 12 titles to their name - the other team being Barcelona with nine.
Germany's record against other countries at major tournaments is not good.
This is a list of England's UEFA European Championship results. The European Championship, which began in 1960, is one of the most important competitive international football events. The tournament's final stage is held every four years, after a qualifying phase. England have won the competition five times, more than any other country.
England's first victory was at their inaugural tournament in 1960. They were beaten by Germany in the final but regained the title four years later. More victories followed in 1968 and 1972. England last won the European Championship in 1976 but it isn't considered a real championship as Italy had already qualified before it started. England have since failed to qualify for the finals stage.
