Yugoslavia had one foot in the 1976 UEFA European Championship final when West Germany coach Helmut Schön made one of the most inspired substitutions of all time.

Trailing 2-1 with eleven minutes left, he replaced Herbert Wimmer with Dieter Müller who, on his debut, had the game of his life. Within three minutes the 1. FC Köln striker had equalised before scoring twice more in extra time to complete his hat-trick and send West Germany through to the final.
