France 2-1 Portugal (aet)
(Henry 51, Zidane 117pen; Nuno Gomes 19)
2000 semi-finals, Brussels
A Zinédine Zidane penalty three minutes from the end of extra time gave France a golden-goal victory over Portugal in Brussels after Abel Xavier was adjudged to have handled a Sylvain Wiltord shot.
Following a fractious opening, Portugal broke the deadlock with their first shot on goal, the off-balance Nuno Gomes steering past Fabien Barthez from 20 metres. France rose to the challenge, finally fashioning an equaliser through Thierry Henry. Still, had Xavier's added-time header been further away from Barthez it would have been Portugal, not Les Bleus, meeting either Italy or the Netherlands on 2 July. Zidane ensured otherwise with the shoot-out looming.
