Ever since the USSR claimed victory at the first European Championships in 1960, there's been a great mix of teams that have won the tournament. From traditional football powerhouses such as Italy and Germany winning the tournament, to form teams like France in 1984 and Holland in 1988, dominant teams like Spain in 2008 and 2012, to surprise victories for Czechoslovakia, Denmark and Greece, the European Championships has continued to provide great stories for a whole range of nations.
