EURO on this day: 20 June

Czechoslovakia 2-2 West Germany aet, Czechs win 5-3 on pens
(Švehlík 8, Dobiaš 25; Müller 28, Hölzenbein 89)
1976 final, Belgrade

It had been roughly a same in a semi-final opposite hosts Yugoslavia – this time, though, Franz Beckenbauer and Co were incompetent to conjure a third idea in a additional half-hour and for a initial time a vital general contest final went to penalties. The initial 7 mark kicks found their aim before Uli Hoeness dismissed over for a holders; Antonín Panenka achieved immortality with a demeanour he converted a winner.
