The big picture: UEFA EURO 2004

UEFA EURO 2004 was all about two teams: hosts Portugal, who roused the nation with their run to the final, and the side that sensationally beat them to win the title, Greece.

The two UEFA EURO 2004 finalists were nations which have never got so far in any major tournament before or since. Hosts Portugal thrilled the nation with their run, bouncing back from their opening loss to Greece by eliminating Russia, Spain, England and the Netherlands. But then in the Lisbon decider it was Greece who awaited them and put on a stubborn display to win 1-0. In our video review of 2004 edition we speak to Luís Figo, Maniche and Antonios Nikopolidis.
