EURO on this day: 9 July

Watch classic EURO goals from on this day in 1960 and apply now for tickets to be at next summer's tournament in France – the deadline is 20.16CET on Friday.

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.
