Ikonische Momente der UEFA Europa Meisterschaften

By Chris Dinsdale

June 11, 2021 - July 11, 2021 - Die UEFA Europa Meisterschaft - um ein Jahr aufgeschoben wegen der Coronavirus Pandemie, behält aber den UEFA Euro 2020 Titel – wird in ganz Europa abgehalten. Die Meisterschaft blickt zurück auf 60 Jahre Verzweiflung und Ekstase, individuelle Brillianz und tolles Teamwork, erstaunliche Goals und unmögliche Saves, mit einem Wort ein Schauspiel mit den besten Fußball Talenten am Kontinent.

1960: Milan Galić of Yugoslavia scores first goal in Championship history, stunning hosts France in remarkable comeback with 3 goals in 4 minutes. Remains highest ever scoring game.

1968: Italy reach final in fortuitous fashion after coin toss decides semi-final following 0-0 draw with USSR.

1972: Prolific striker Gerd Müller inspires West Germany to first title. Star-studded team includes legendary captain Franz Beckenbauer

1984: Dramatic semi-final as both teams score in extra time before talismanic captain Michel Platini hits last gasp winner to send “Les Bleus” into final.

1988: Marco van Basten’s famous finish is arguably among greatest ever goals. Dutch master connects to Arnold Mühren’s high cross and volleys just inside far post from near impossible angle.

1992: Denmark scrape through group stage to beat holders Netherlands in semi-finals, and go on to shock world champions Germany in final.

1996: England face Germany in repeat of 1990 World Cup semi-final. Three Lions come agonisingly close to final but lose 6-5 on penalties -- fate is sealed when Gareth Southgate fails to score.

2000: David Trezeguet’s golden goal makes France first World and European champions.

2004: Greece produce brilliant team display, firing only goal to beat host favourites Portugal -- arguably biggest shock in tournament’s history.

2008: David Villa hits Championships’ eighth, and most recent, hat-trick, as undefeated Spain go on to end 44-year wait for trophy.

2016: Underdogs Wales -- inspired by Gareth Bale -- spring surprise to reach first ever semi-final at any major tournament, surpassing their previous best at 1958 World Cup.

2020: Tournament staged in 11 cities across Europe for first time in its 60-year history -- but delayed by one year due to coronavirus pandemic.
