十三年前……

荷兰队在2008年欧洲杯掀起了“橙色风暴”,小组赛前两轮砍瓜切菜般斩落意大利和法国两强。时年25岁的替补门将斯特克伦伯格在第三轮比赛完成欧洲杯首秀,保持零封。自范德萨从国家队退役后成为主力门将,出战了此后两届大赛,获得2010年南非世界杯亚军。2012年后淡出,荷兰队也经历了连续两届无缘大赛的低谷。本届比赛由于西莱森缺阵,38岁高龄的斯特克伦伯格得到弗兰克·德波尔的征召,第三次出战欧洲杯。

瑞典国家队队长格兰奎斯特(下图右)在23岁时以替补身份入选2008年欧洲杯名单,但三场比赛均未出场。四年后他以主力中后卫和右后卫出阵了全部三场小组赛,2016年则以中后卫身份打满三场。伊布从国家队退役后,格兰奎斯特接过了队长袖标。在他的率领下,瑞典在2018年俄罗斯世界杯闯入八强,格兰奎斯特本人也在小组赛中打入两粒点球。本届比赛是他第四次出战欧洲杯。

2007年夏天,佩佩以三千万身价从波尔图转会皇马,这在当时可称得上天价。第二年欧洲杯,25岁的佩佩作为主力中卫与卡瓦略搭档,出战了葡萄牙全部四场比赛。十多年来他一直是国家队后防核心,出战了每一届大赛,中卫搭档也从布鲁诺·阿尔维斯换成何塞·丰特。2016年与法国队的欧洲杯决赛,佩佩荣膺全场最佳,为球队神奇夺冠立下汗马功劳。虽然近些年葡萄牙在中前场人才辈出,但38岁高龄的佩佩仍将在本届比赛作为主力中卫出战。

2008年欧洲杯“死亡之组”首轮,世界冠军意大利0比3完败荷兰。主帅多纳多尼及时调整后卫线,撤下马特拉齐和巴尔扎利,将35岁的老将帕努奇从右后卫调至中后卫,并遣上23岁的基耶利尼与之搭档。意大利在接下来三场比赛中保持不败,四分之一决赛点球惜败西班牙,基耶利尼也发挥十分出色。自此,他和博努奇、巴尔扎利成为了尤文图斯和国家队后防线上的不二人选。本届比赛,36岁的基耶利尼仍将和小他两岁的博努奇搭档,出战个人第四次欧洲杯。

2008年欧洲杯小组赛势如破竹的荷兰队在四分之决赛意外被俄罗斯横扫。当届比赛,俄罗斯队在荷兰人希丁克的带领下踢出了赏心悦目的足球,并成功闯入四强。前场核心阿尔沙文和时年24岁的左后卫日尔科夫双双入选杯赛最佳阵容,他们二人也在一年后以不菲的身价加盟阿森纳和切尔西。现年37岁的日尔科夫老而弥坚,落选2016年欧洲杯名单后依然得到国家队征召,出战了本土举办的2018年世界杯。本届比赛将是他第三次出战欧洲杯。

早在两年前的德国世界杯,年仅20岁的莫德里奇就获得了国家队的征召,并在两场小组赛中替补登场。2008年欧洲杯,已经宣布夏季加盟托特纳姆热刺的克罗地亚中场天才与队长尼科·科瓦奇搭档中场,出阵了全部四场比赛,并最终入选杯赛最佳阵容。他也是最佳十一人中唯一一名国家队没有闯入四强的球员。2016年斯尔纳从国家队退役后,莫德里奇当之无愧地接任队长,并带领克罗地亚拿到2018年俄罗斯世界杯季军。本届比赛是35岁高龄的他第四次出战欧洲杯。

组织型中场穆蒂尼奥是十年多来葡萄牙国家队的常客。2008年欧洲杯,年仅21岁的穆蒂尼奥身披10号战袍出战了葡萄牙全部四场比赛,其中三场首发。缺席2010年世界杯后,穆蒂尼奥作为主力中场出战了葡萄牙2012年欧洲杯全部五场比赛,和2014年世界杯全部三场比赛。在接下来的两届大赛中,葡萄牙队逐步实现年轻化,年届三十的穆蒂尼奥介于主力和替补之间。本届比赛,34岁的穆蒂尼奥依然得到征召,第四次出战欧洲杯。

除了格兰奎斯特之外,另一名曾参加2008年欧洲杯的现役瑞典球员是塞巴斯蒂安·拉尔森,司职右中场,长期在英超中下游球队(伯明翰,桑德兰)效力。他在小组赛第二轮与西班牙的比赛中曾替补出场。接下来两届欧洲杯,他作为主力出战了全部六场小组赛比赛。本届比赛,36岁高龄的拉尔森仍将身披象征主力的7号战袍,出战个人的第四次欧洲杯。

年少成名的本泽马作为主力中锋出战了2008年欧洲杯,时年20岁。前一个赛季他在里昂状态火热,包揽最佳射手和赛季MVP。但初登大舞台的他在该届比赛中表现惨淡,首场比赛法国队被罗马尼亚逼平,本泽马中途被换下,并在第二场对荷兰对荷兰队比赛中被拿出首发阵容。虽然在第三场与意大利的比赛中重新首发登场,但球队0比2告负后草草结束了欧洲杯征程。本泽马由于个人因素缺席了上两届大赛,本赛季状态出色的他重新得到德尚征召,将参加个人第三次欧洲杯。

2008年C罗仍只有23岁,但他已经是第二次参加欧洲杯。前一年的世界足球先生评选,他与梅西分列二三位,位居卡卡之后,一个崭新的“双娇”时代就此开启。他在当赛季还带领曼联勇夺欧冠冠军。在菲戈退出国家队后,2008年欧洲杯是C罗第一次身披7号战袍为国家队出战,努诺·戈麦斯不在场上时由他佩戴队长袖标。本届比赛,36岁的C罗将第五次出战欧洲杯,这也是他自2004年以来连续第九次参加洲际大赛。

本届比赛是北马其顿第一次参加洲际大赛,37岁高龄的队长潘德夫将和他的国家队队友们一起迎来欧洲杯首秀。虽然是第一次参加大赛,但潘德夫早在2001年就已代表国家队出战。2011年离开国际米兰后,潘德夫仍然活跃在顶级联赛,相继在那不勒斯和热那亚保持着稳定的出场和进球率。下图是2006年欧洲杯预选赛时,22岁的潘德夫对抗英格兰中卫莱德利·金。是役,马其顿在老特拉福德0比0逼平强大的对手。而该届预选赛,英格兰也以一分之差落后克罗地亚和俄罗斯,未能晋级正赛。
