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.


The winners of Euro 2008 and World Cup 2010 had a predictably straightforward run into Euro 2012.

Drawn in Group I against Czech Republic, Scotland, Lithuania and Liechtenstein, the Spaniards won eight from eight and qualified a full 11 points clear of group runners-up Czech Republic.

That form has not been repeated in friendly matches, however. Since sealing their qualification for Poland and Ukraine, Vicente del Bosque's side have lost to England 1-0 at Wembley - the last of four defeats since their World Cup triumph.

The world champions were thrashed 4-1 in Argentina, and 4-0 in Portugal in 2010, and were beaten by group rivals Italy in August.

Their pre-tournament form has been better with wins over Serbia and South Korea.
