The second-most watched international tournament after the FIFA World Cup, UEFA Euro will take centre stage this summer with the 17th edition of the competition set to be hosted in Germany. Since its inception in 1958, initially named the European Nations' Cup until 1968, the Euros has firmly established itself as a true Pan-European competition with as many as 36 out of 55 UEFA-affiliated countries having taken part in history. The competition has been held every four years since 1960 except for the 2020 edition when the tournament was held a year later due to the pandemic. A total of 12 sides have lifted the title including four teams who tasted success twice or more.    

The most successful sides in the competition history are Germany and Spain with three titles each. The title triumphs for the former came before this century while the latter has been more successful in past decades including winning the Euros back-to-back, the only side to have done so. Despite that, Die Mannschaft has dominated most of the records in the tournament. They have reached the final more than any other side and have scored the most goals. However, the all-time top-scorer award belongs to the football mega-star Cristiano Ronaldo from Portugal. The 39-year-old will also appear for a record-extending sixth Euro finals.
