Picture : Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo can be the new Recordmen with 5 participations in June !
Players with most participations in final stages: 17
Twenty players have been with their sides in the final stages of the European Championships at least 4 times. They represent 11 different national teams.
17 players from this list took part in 4 tournaments, that is, they played at least one match in each of the four. The first to achieve this milestone were Lothar Matthäus (Germany) and Peter Schmeichel (Denmark) at Euro 2000.
It is interesting that Matthäus, while setting his record, missed two final Euro tournaments (1992, 1996). If he had not missed them, he would have raised the record bar to an unattainable height (6 tournaments).
