England will be participating in the UEFA European Championships for the tenth time in 2020. Have they ever won the tournament?
The 2021 European Championship will mark 60 years of the football event, and games will be held all around the continent to mark the occasion.
In spite of the Covid pandemic postponing the Euros by a year and limits on crowd sizes, Euro 2020 has been the football festival that organisers had hoped for.
Fans of England have been boosted by the Three Lions’ performances, and the fact that so many games, including the semi-finals and the final, were played at Wembley made it feel like a home tournament.
A lot of people are hoping to find out if England, Italy, or Denmark have ever won the European Championship as they imagine Harry Kane hoisting the trophy on home soil.
How about the European Championships? Does England have any titles?
At the 2021 European Championship, England will try to win their first European Championship.
England has made a total of nine Euro Cup participation, however they have yet to emerge victorious.
Prior to Euro 2020, England has qualified for the semifinals only twice (in 1968 and 1996).
Even though England’s “Golden Generation” advanced to the quarterfinals twice under Steve McClaren (in 2004 and 2012), they failed to qualify for the tournament in 2008.
The current crop of England players, led by Gareth Southgate, improved upon their last-round appearance from 2016 and now hope to make their own mark in the annals of English soccer history.
World Cup Results for England
After defeating Denmark 2-1 in extra time in the semi-finals at Euro 2020, England advanced to the competition final for the first time since 1966.
England has appeared in 15 World Cups and 9 Euros, but their 1966 victory is their sole big tournament victory.
Southgate led England to a fourth-place finish in the 2018 World Cup in Russia, matching the team’s best-ever World Cup finish from 1990 when they also finished in fourth place.
Who Took Home the Trophy in Euro ’96?
Many football enthusiasts of a particular age have fond memories of Euro 96. The tournament was held in England during the height of Brit-pop and Cool Britannia, and the weather was perfect every day (honest).
For England, there were unforgettable moments on the field, like Gazza’s goal against Scotland, the rout of the Netherlands, and Psycho’s penalty against Spain.
Fans of the Three Lions had been hopeful that Southgate, who led England to the semi-finals but lost to Germany due to a missing penalty, will lead the team to triumph at Euro 2020.
Germany triumphed over the Czech Republic in the tournament’s championship game, claiming victory for Euro 96.
Italy has Won the European Championship How Many Times?
Italy are a former Euro Cup champion, having done so once, in 1968. In their past nine tournament appearances, Italy has twice finished second (in 2000 and 2012), twice been eliminated in the semifinals, and twice made it to the quarterfinals.
After beating Spain in a penalty shootout, Italy secured a spot in the Euro 2020 final and will be competing at Wembley on Sunday hoping to win the tournament for the first time in 53 years.
Just How Many Times has Denmark Hoisted the Euro Trophy?
Denmark, who were eliminated in the semifinals in Euro 2020, surprised the world by winning the UEFA European Championship in 1992.
Given a chance to compete after Yugoslavia pulled out, the Danish team won Euro 92 in Sweden against all odds.
Among their seven prior tournament participation, they reached the semifinals in 1984, the final four in 1964, and the quarterfinals in 2004.
Germany has won the European Championship three times in the past (1972, 1980, 1996)
- Spain – 3 (1964, 2008, 2012)
- 2-0, France (1984, 2000)
- Holland, 1 (1988)
- Italy – 1 (1968)
- One for Greece (2004)
- Danes down, 1 (1992)
- The score in Portugal’s favour: 1 (2016)
