Luxembourg & Liechtenstein used to be the smallest nations to compete in the Euros that has now expanded to 55 countries.
Formed in 1954, UEFA originally consisted of 29 nations.
The break ups of the Soviet Union & Yugoslavia expanded the competitor list from 2 to 18 alone (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia & Ukraine).
In addition micro nations Faroe Islands, San Marino, Andorra and Gibraltar were welcomed into the fold.
Could we see Nagorno Karabakh, Transnistria, Greenland & Monaco one day?
I have visited the Royal Duchy twice, during inter rail tours in ‘87 & ‘89.
We stayed in youth hostels on both occasions and had a pleasant if not entirely memorable time.
Tiny Liechtenstein was the last country that I visited for the first time, my trip being in February 2019.
I travelled by train and bus from Zurich, staying in a small chalet style hotel in Triesenberg high up in the mountains.
