1960 EURO third place play-off highlights: Czechoslovakia 2-0 France

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, Czechoslovakia 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 France debuts in this third-place play-off, but both were helpless to prevent the opener, Bubník driving in Ladislav Novák's long cross. Pavlovič added the second when he dispossessed Michel Stievenard and cut in from the halfway line.
