Having won against Portugal in the group stage, the title holders Spain defeated them again in the final, 4–2, to claim a third consecutive and fifth overall title.

BidsEdit

The Hungarian bid was selected during a meeting of UEFA's Executive Committee, on November 30, 2007, in Lucerne, Switzerland. The bid was picked ahead of three other entries from Belgium (Charleroi and Antwerp), Bosnia and Herzegovina (Sarajevo) and Turkey (Istanbul).[1][2]

QualificationEdit

Thirty-eight nations took part in the qualifying round, with hosts Hungary automatically qualified for the expanded 12-team final tournament.

Qualifying was played in two stages, with 16 sides competing in the preliminary round between 14–22 February 2009. The winners of the four groups and two best runners-up progressed to join the other 22 entrants in the next phase. In the main qualifying round, which took place between 19–22 March, there was seven groups of four with the first-placed teams and four best runners-up advancing to the final tournament.[3]
