France suffered their worst ever EURO defeat on 13 June, but Yugoslavia's players have reason to remember the date more fondly as they recall a remarkable finals comeback.

Yugoslavia 3-3 Slovenia
(Milošević 67 73, Drulović 70; Zahovič 23 57, Pavlin 52)
2000 group stage, Charleroi

The outlook was not so much gloomy as apocalyptic for Yugoslavia three-quarters of the way through this Group C opener. Trailing 3-0, Siniša Mihajlović compounded their woes by getting sent off; but then something incredible happened. Within the space of six minutes they were level.

Tournament debutants Slovenia, 150-1 outsiders at the start of UEFA EURO 2000, had been in dreamland, coasting after two goals from Zlatko Zahovič and Miran Pavlin's header. Mihajlović's indiscretions seemingly left them on the home straight yet they eased off fatally. Substitute Savo Milošević pounced, scoring twice either side of Ljubinko Drulović's sweet left-footed strike to earn Yugoslavia a remarkable point.
