* HilariousInHindsight: Greece won in 2004. Their manager... Otto Rehhagel. Yeah, a German coach led Greece to a surprise victory.
* MemeticMutation: Mario Balotelli's [[ShirtlessScene "revealing" goal celebration]] after his goal against Germany, in the semi-final of the Euro 2012.
* ToughActToFollow: In terms of defending champions:
** France failed to qualify for the next edition after winning in 1984.
** Denmark (1996), Germany (2000) and Greece (2008) failed to go through to the next round. Greece even finished their group stage with ''zero'' points!
