Qualifying and recent results

Ahead of Euro 2012, we are casting our eyes back over the past two years and assessing each country's record.


Russia had an unconvincing start to qualification when beating Andorra just 2-0 away and then losing at home to Slovakia.

However, a 3-2 win away at Ireland then spurred them onto greater things under coach Dick Advocaat.

They topped Group B with 23 points from 10 games, conceding just four goals in the process.

After qualifying they faced two fellow Euro 2012 finalists before naming their preliminary squad.

Russia drew 1-1 with Greece in November and then beat Denmark 2-0 in Copenhagen.

(Fixtures and results correct up until May 24 and the start of pre-tournament friendlies)
