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.


An otherwise perfect, and incredibly prolific, qualifying campaign was marred on the final day by the Dutch.

Having previously enjoyed a 100 per cent record. Netherlands were defeated 3-2 away in Sweden, though their qualification was already assured.

Perhaps the highlight of the qualification process was an 11-0 home win over San Marino in October 2011.

Robin van Persie scored four times as Netherlands recorded their biggest ever victory.

Results in recent friendlies have been mixed though, a 0-0 draw with Switzerland in November followed by a 3-0 home defeat to Germany and a last-minute victory in England in February.

More worryingly, Bulgaria beat Netherlands 2-1 on May 26 in the build-up to the Euro 2012 finals.
