EURO on this day: 22 June

Watch classic goals from Horst Hrubesch, Oleh Protasov and Sami Khedira from on this day in EURO history and apply now for tickets to be in France next summer.

Belgium 1-2 West Germany
(Vandereycken 75pen; Hrubesch 10 89)
1980 final, Rome

West Germany re-established themselves as Europe's pre-eminent international force as goals by Horst Hrubesch, his second coming with only a minute remaining, earned Jupp Derwall's side their second UEFA European Championship with a 2-1 victory against Belgium.

West Germany had made a slow start to the 1976 final, going two down within the first 25 minutes, but there was no repeat this time as Bernd Schuster, the 20-year-old playmaker who once again dazzled in midfield, set up Hrubesch for the opening goal. Though Belgium's hopes were raised by René Vandereycken's 75th-minute penalty, Hrubesch struck again at the death to sink the underdogs.
