Momentos icónicos de la Eurocopa UEFA

By Chris Dinsdale

June 11, 2021 - July 11, 2021 - La Eurocopa UEFA -- pospuesta un año debido a la pandemia de coronaviarus, pero que retiene el título Eurocopa UEFA 2020 -- se realiza en toda Europa. El torneo marca 60 años de agonía y éxtasis, excelencia individual y trabajo triunfante de equipo, goles sorprendentes y atajadas imposibles, creando un despliegue de lo mejor del talento futbolístico en el continente.

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.
