How many times has Germany won the Euro?

Germany attacks its Euro this Friday with a duel against Scotland. But how many times has she been crowned in this competition?

Euro 2024 begins this Friday evening in Berlin with the opposition between Germany and Scotland. Host country of this event, the Mannschaft will be keen to do well, especially since it is its favorite competition.

Germany, a reference to the Euro

Indeed, the Germans really like the European Championship. It’s a competition they have won three times in the past. Only Spain did as well.

The Mannschaft is therefore the country which has been crowned most often at the Euro. That being said, it has been a while since this nation stood on the roof of the continent. The last time was in 1996 in England. They then won in the final against the Czech Republic thanks to a golden goal from Oliver Bierhoff.

No triumph at 21e century

The best result since then is a place in the final. In 2008, Ballack and others fell against Spain in Vienna. In 2012 and 2016, Joachim Low’s men fell to the future unfortunate finalists, Italy and France.

The other two German coronations date back to 1972 and 1980. Each time it was away. The only tournament organized at home before this year ended in elimination in the semi-finals. It was during the 1988 edition (against the Netherlands).

In addition to its triumphs at the Euro, Germany also has, as a reminder, four World Cup triumphs.
