EURO On This Day: 10 July

Soviet Union 2-1 Yugoslavia (aet)
(Metreveli 49, Ponedelnik 113; Galić 43)
1960 final, Paris

Milan Galić put them ahead in scrappy fashion and thereafter it was only the heroics of 30-year-old goalkeeper Lev Yashin that denied them.

Yugoslav counterpart Blagoje Vidinić, by contrast, had dropped Valentin Bubukin's long shot and allowed Slava Metreveli to equalise.
