How often was Italy winner of the European Football Championships?

Question by Guest | 18/06/2016 at 20:59

As far as I know, Italy was winner of the football World Cup for four times.

But what about Italy at the European football championships? Could Italy also make to become European champion that often? And if yes, in which years was it?

Italy only made to become European football Champion for one time. It was 1968 in their own country. At that time, Italy met Yugoslavia in the finals.

The match was quite interesting because in those days, the penalty shootout was not yet invented. Even after the extra time, the result was still 1-1 between Italy and Yugoslavia. The game was repeated and in the repetition, Italy could win with 2-0.

By the way, Italy made the second place in 2000 and 2012. In 1980, Italy was on the fourth place after a penalty shootout against Czechoslovakia in the third place match.

You can find more information in the table of all previous European football champions.
