EURO on this day: 28 June

Watch classic goals from Thierry Henry, Zinédine Zidane and Mario Balotelli from on this day in EURO history and apply now for tickets to be in France next summer.

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.
