1800-Worldcup.com/ Euro 2004 -- The Finals Tournament

Sunday, 13th June:

Switzerland -- Croatia (0-0)
A second yellow card for Johann Vogel reduced Switzerland to 10 men for most of the second half and the scrappy contest remained goaless.

France -- England (2-1)
David Beckham's free-kick from the right was headed in by Frank Lampard, six minutes before the break, to give England a half-time lead.

England were presesented with a golden opportunity to put the game out of France's reach in the 72nd minute, when Wayne Rooney was brought down while on a flying run into the penalty area. David Beckham took the penalty too quickly and Fabien Barthez saved it.

The England captain's Real Madrid team-mate, Zinedine Zidane, produced an injury time double whammy with a direct free-kick and spot-kick to make David Beckham's penalty miss look all the worse. A classic match.

Portugal vs. Holland (2-1)
1-0 (Cristiano Ronaldo 26)
2-0 (Nuno Maniche 58)
2-1 (Jorge Andrade, own goal, 63)

A Jorge Andrade own-goal, in the 63rd minute, wasn't enough to get Holland back into this game and the Portuguese defender was thankful that his team held onto their lead.

Cristiano Ronaldo headed in a Deco corner in the first half and Nuno Maniche scored one of the goals of the tournament, four minutes before Jorge Andrade flicked the ball over his own keeper's head, to take the hosts into the final and Scolari into the history books.

Thursday, 1st July: Match 30
Greece vs. Czech Republic (1-0)
1-0 (Traianos Dellas 105)
A silver goal from Greek defender Traianos Dellas, in the last second of the first period of extra time, was enough to enough to put Greece into the final of Euro 2004.

Dellas headed home the only goal of the game, from a corner by substitute Vassilis Tsartas, to set the fireworks off early in Athens.

Euro 2004 Final

Sunday, 4th July:
Portugal -- Greece (0-1)
0-1 (Angelos Charisteas 57)

Germany's Otto Rehhagel became the first foreign trainer to win a major tournament for another country, as Greece proved that their opening day win against Portugal was indeed no fluke.

Angelos Charisteas rose to head in a 57th minute corner from Angelos Basinas as Ricardo tried to stumble into a Greek player, far away from the goal-scoring action..... but the German referee, Markus Merk, was not as gullible as Urs Maier.
