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

Tuesday, 15th June:

Czech Republic -- Latvia (2-1)
0-1 (Maris Verpakovskis 45)
1-1 (Milan Baros 73)
2-1 (Marek Heinz 84)

After Milan Baros tried to take on half the Latvia team alone, instead of passing to Pavel Nedved out on his right, Latvia countered and took the lead on the stroke of half-time; through Maris Verpakovskis.

Milan Baros finally made amends in the 73rd minute, after it started to look like nothing would go right for the Czech strike force.

Confusion in the Latvian area gave Marek Heinz the opportunity to put the Czechs in front, six minutes before the final whistle, after hitting the crossbar minutes earlier.

Germany -- Holland (1-1)
1-0 (Torsten Frings 30)
1-1 (Ruud van Nistelrooy 81)

Germany seemed in control of this game's destiny, especially after everyone missed Torsten Fring's free-kick from the left wing, in the 30th minute. Then Ruud van nistelrooy flicked in a goal at the near post, to spoil Ollie Kahn's birthday, with 9 minutes left on the clock.

Saturday, 19th June:

Latvia -- Germany (0-0)

Holland -- Czech Republic (2-3)
1-0 (Wilfred Bouma 4)
2-0 (Ruud van Nistelrooy 19)

Quarter-finals

Saturday, 26th June
Sweden -- Holland (0-0aet 4-5pens)

Despite both sides coming close in extra-time the game never came up to expectations and we were left with penalties to decide who would join Portugal in the semi-final.

Van der Sar's penalty save (from Olof Mellberg) the deciding factor, after Ibrahimovic and Coco both missed.

Sunday, 27th June: Match 28
Czech Republic -- Denmark (3-0)
1-0 (Jan Koller 49)
2-0 (Milan Baros 63)
3-0 (Milan Baros 65)

After a slow and unexciting first-half, this game stepped up a gear in the second half when Jan Koller headed home a Karel Poborsky corner.

Poborsky then had a hand in Milan Baros' first goal with Pavel Nedved setting the Liverpool player on the way for his second and the Czech Repuclic's third of the night.

Semi-finals

Wednesday, 30th June: Match 29
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.
