In the only EURO fixture to take place on 9 July, Czechoslovakia beat hosts France in 1960 thanks to goals from Vlastimil Bubník and Ladislav Pavlovič to finish third.

Czechoslovakia 2-0 France
(Bubník 58, Pavlovič 88)
1960 third-place play-off, Marseille

Defeated 3-0 by the Soviet Union in the last four, the Czechs mounted an impressive response against the hosts, who themselves had surrendered a 4-2 lead to be eliminated by Yugoslavia in the semi-finals. Superior for large periods, Czechoslovakia prevailed thanks to second-half goals from Vlastimil Bubník and Ladislav Pavlovič.

It proved a defining fixture in Marseille, with seven players from either side never capped again. Robert Siatka and goalkeeper Jean Taillandier were handed French debuts in the third-place play-off, but both were helpless to deny the opener, Bubník driving in Ladislav Novák's long cross. Pavlovic added a second when he robbed Michel Stievenard and ran in from the halfway line.
