EURO on this day: 11 June

On this day: Andriy Shevchenko spearheaded a famous night for the 2012 co-hosts, while Cristiano Ronaldo starred four years earlier.

EURO 2012 highlights: Ukraine 2-1 Sweden

(Shevchenko 55 61; Ibrahimović 52)
2012 group stage, Kyiv

It was apt that the talismanic Andriy Shevchenko scored the co-hosts' first UEFA European Championship finals goals to give them an unforgettable evening in Kyiv's NSC Olimpiyskiy stadium.

Another lauded striker, Zlatan Ibrahimović, had given Sweden the lead from Kim Källström's cross, but Shevchenko turned the contest with a brace of headers, the first from Andriy Yarmolenko's teasing centre and the decider via Yevhen Konoplyanka's near-post corner.

Czech Republic 1-3 Portugal
(Sionko 17; Deco 8, Ronaldo 63, Quaresma 90+1)
2008 group stage, Geneva

Cristiano Ronaldo scored one goal and set up two more as Portugal qualified for the quarter-finals as group winners with a game to spare.

Libor Sionko and Deco traded early goals before Luiz Felipe Scolari's men pulled away in the second half. Ronaldo was the difference maker, drilling in from the edge of the area in the 63rd minute before supplying Ricardo Quaresma to round things off in added time.
