Notes

UEFA disqualified the England team from eligibility for the Fair Play Award because of the behaviour--outside the stadium--of the hooligan element that continues to follow the team abroad.  That ruling apparently was based on UEFA officials' judgment that neither the U.K. government nor the Football Association had acted adequately to prevent or limit hooligan presence at the tournament.

Notes

Rankings beyond those determined by the final match are unofficial and based on, in order, stage of the competition reached, points earned, goal difference and number of goals scored.

That England, for the first time in a major competition since the 1966 World Cup, finished ahead of old rivals Germany, who went from champions in 1996 to second from the bottom in 2000, furnished little compensation for the team's dreadful performance. 

The champions of 1992, Denmark, finished dead last at Euro 2000, and the champions of 1996, Germany, finished second from bottom.
