The all-time Euros table has been revealed, England are only in seventh place

The all-time Euros table has been revealed, England are only in seventh place

The all-time table has been announced.

The all-time European Championships table has been revealed, with one nation considerably leading the way - but it is not England.

After being proposed on many occasions and actually trialled in several different formats, the European Championships were inaugurated in 1958.

The first edition of the tournament, held in 1960, was named as the European Nations Cup - and consisted of France, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union (USSR).

England would make their Euros debut eight years later in 1968, with the tournament expanding to eight teams in 1980.

A total of 16 teams contested Euro 1996 in England, with the current format of 24 teams first being adopted in 2016.

The early editions of the Euros were dominated by the likes of Spain, Italy and West Germany, with the lack of teams meaning that only elite sides generally took part.

That is different nowadays, of course, with more nations given the opportunity to impress on the European stage.

But given the number of changes to the format over the years, the all-time Euros table is skewed towards those that competed regularly when the tournament was first created.

The full table has been published on Reddit by user @yunghorst, and shows Germany - their results as West Germany included - as comfortably out in front.

Although they have played more Euros games than any other nation (53), they have picked up 27 wins, drawing 13 and losing 13 of their other matches.

They are ahead of Italy, who have won 21 and drawn 18 of their 45 matches and would be on top of the table if a points per game system was used.

Spain, France and 1988 winners Netherlands round out the top five, while Euro 2016 winners Portugal are in sixth place.

You then find England in seventh place, having tasted victory in only 15 of their 38 games - the highest-ranked nation to have never won a men's European Championship.

Czech Republic - their results as Czechoslovakia not included - are in eighth place, boosted by their Euro 1996 final appearance.

Euro 2004 winners Greece, meanwhile, are in 15th place, while inaugural winners USSR are in 13th place despite only competing in five editions of the tournament.

Will this table change considerably by the end of Euro 2024? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
