Latvia's tactical masterclass

We analyse how Latvia secured a point against Germany at UEFA EURO 2004.

UEFA EURO 2004 was the tournament of the underdog as Greece surprised many to triumph and in the group stage debutants Latvia also ruffled the feathers of more illustrious opponents by taking a point off three-times champions Germany. We speak to two heroes of Latvia's team that day, Vitalijis Astafjevs and Marians Pahars, about their tactical approach to the game.
