Italy has set a record for the most consecutive victories in the European Championship qualifiers and official tournament combined with 15 wins in a row ater defeating Belgium 2-1 in the Euro 2020 quarter-finals.

Germany had held the previous record after winning all 10 of their Euro 2012 qualifiers and then emerging victorious in four games at that tournament co-hosted by Poland and Ukraine before losing to Italy in the semi-finals.

According to UEFA, Italy started their run from March 2019 and they have continued that streak into Euro 2020. Belgium had also won 14 games since the qualifiers but the Italians halted the run of the Belgians with that victory in Munich, Germany.

Azzurri have equalled the record for the most consecutive victories at the tournament with five. This record is shared with France at Euro ’84, The Netherlands from Euro ’88 to Euro ’92, and the Czech Republic from Euro 2000 until Euro 2004.

Italy have also equalled the record for the most wins at the tournament with five, sharing that with France at the 1984, 2000, and 2016 European Championships, and Spain in 2008.
