3. Norway (Euro 2000)
Another side that had to wait for a number of decades before featuring at the finals, Nils Johan Semb’s side dominated what, on paper, was one of the weaker group where Greece and Slovenia were favourites to automatically qualify.
After picking up four points from their opening three games, they put together seven-game winning streak to make the finals in Belgium and the Netherlands.
Premier League strikers Tore Andre Flo and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fired home five goals each in qualifying.
