Notes

By year[edit]

Cesc Fàbregas, scorer of winning penalties for Spain in shoot-outs in two different tournaments (2008 and 2012)
  • Penalty-kicks were introduced to the UEFA European Championship in 1976.
  • Before 1976, there are 17 matches during the first four tournaments from 1960 to 1972, 16 scheduled matches ( four per tournament ) and 1 replay match. Only 2 of those matches were not decided within 120 minutes. The Euro 1968 semi-final between Italy and Soviet Union was decided by coin toss. When Euro 1968 final between Italy and Yugoslavia drew in 120 minutes, a replay was scheduled instead of a coin toss. Both the semi-final coin toss and the final replay were won by Italy, the host.
