Teams in the top eight before 1980[edit]

For these records we need to consider the quarter finalists of every edition (1960, 1964, 1968, 1972, 1976). Wales, in 1976, played against Yugoslavia in these stage of the competion in that year. The "teams finished in top eight" before 1980 are obviously eight. In these section there aren't the teams eliminated in the quarter finals from 1960 to 1976. These are the teams eliminated in quarter finals from 1960 to 1976: 1960: Austria, Romania, Portugal, Spain; 1964: Luxembourg, France, Sweden, Republic of Ireland; 1968: Bulgaria, Hungary, Spain, France; 1972: Italy, Romania, England, Yugoslavia; 1976: Wales, Soviet Union, Spain, Belgium.

Only championships. From 1960 to 1976 only top 4. Wales debut in 2016. See UEFA Euro 1976. There no Wales. Wales was in qualifying. Qualifying stage is not top 8. GAV80 (talk) 16:39, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

Wales played in the "quarter finals" or "playoffs" of that tournament. Please check it on the official UEFA site. Before 1980, the top eight teams played in the quarter finals of every tournament. If the paragraph is named "top eight" we need to consider the quarter finals of the tournaments between 1960 and 1976. I have checked it on the official UEFA site: Wales played the quarter finals of the that tournament. These are the teams eliminated in quarter finals from 1960 to 1976: 1960: Austria , Romania, Portugal, Spain; 1964: Luxembourg, France, Sweden, Republic of Ireland; 1968: Bulgaria, Hungary, Spain, France; 1972: Italy, Romania, England, Yugoslavia; 1976: Wales, Soviet Union, Spain, Belgium. We need to add: Spain: 1960, 1968, 1976 (three times more) Romania: 1960, 1972 (two times more) France: 1964, 1968 (two times more) Austria, Portugal: 1960 (one time) Sweden, Luxembourg, Republic of Ireland : 1964 (one time) Bulgaria, Hungary: 1968 (one time) Italy, England, Yugoslavia: 1972 (one time more) Wales, Soviet Union, Belgium: 1976 (one time more). You can control it on the official UEFA site. Before 1980, UEFA chose the venue to play the semifinals and finals after the quarter finals stage. The "top eight teams" were eliminated in that stage of every tournament. Please verify it on the official UEFA site. For this reason, the table is wrong. "Top eight" is different from "top four".
