European championship - History
EC-history from BBC

EC 2004   Host: Portugal   Winner: Hellas
Greece pulled off one of the biggest shocks in football history to beat Portugal in the Euro 2004 final. Angelos Charisteas scored from the Greeks' first corner after 57 minutes, heading in an Angelis Basinas cross. And the Greek defence then stifled the hosts' flair in a tense second half, led by the inspired Traianos Dellas. Portugal surged forwards and came close through Cristiano Ronaldo, Maniche, and Luis Figo but Greece goalkeeper Antonios Nikopolidis stood firm.

Final result: Greece - Portugal 1-0
EC 2000 Host: Belgium/Netherlands   Winner: France
Trezeguet's golden goal won the Euro 2000 final for France and put Roger Lemerre's side in football's history books. Substitute Trezeguet's goal in the 103rd minute saw the French become the first team to add the European Championship to the World Cup. It was total heartbreak for Italy, who were leading deep into injury time until France justified their billing as the best team in the competition with a stunning late comeback. Trezeguet made it the second European championship in succession to finish with a golden goal - and provided a fitting finale to a compelling tournament. Final: France - Italy 2-1 a.e.t
EC 1996 Host: England   Winner: Tyskland
"Football's Coming Home," sang Baddiel, Skinner and almost the entire English nation, but in the end, as so many times in the past, it was the Germans who carried off the spoils. In the final it was the chez.rep who took the lead but just befiore the end substitute Oliver Bierhoff rose to head home an equalisier. Extra time began. Four minutes later, Czech keeper Petr Kouba fumbled a mis-hit Bierhoff shot and it was all over. If the Queen felt any grief handing over the trophy to Jurgen Klinsmann, she disguised it well.
Final: Chez.rep - Germany 1-2 a.e.t
EC 1992 Host: Sweden   Winner: Denmark
Denmark shocked Europe with a memorable victory over favourites Germany with a devastating performance in a closely fought final in Stockholm. What made it even more extraordinary was the fact that the Danes were only in the tournament because Yugoslavia were forced to pull out at the last minute. 40,000 packed into Gothenburg's Nya Ullevi Stadium for the final and it was rank outsiders Denmark who got their noses in front thanks to a John Jensen goal. Peter Schmeichel kept the Germans at bay for much of the game and with 12 minutes remaining Kim Vilfort finished them off to give Denmark the title. Final: Denmark -W.Germany 2-0
EC 1988 Host: Germany  Winner: Netherlands
Before this tournament everyone expected West Germany's name to be engraved on the trophy.
Not only did they possess one of the most star-studded line-ups in world football, but they were playing the tournament in their own back garden. Instead Holland proved
to be the great team this time. The final was essentially a re-match of one of the first group games. However, this time the Holland class told and a header from one of the world's greatest players, Ruud Gullit and a wonder goal from van Basten proved too much for the Soviet Union.
Final: Netherlands -Soviet union 2-0
EC 1984 Host: France   Vinner: France
France had the honour of staging the seventh European Championship and they worked wonders both on and off the pitch to help make this the greatest yet. World Cup winners Italy were the most significant absentees from the finals after a dreadful qualifying bid, but it would be hard to imagine a better tournament taking place even if Brazil had been there at their most sublime. In the final Frenchman Yvon Le Roux was sent off but Spain still somehow seemed to be fighting a losing battle and Bruno Bellone finished them off with a chipped second goal that secured France a deserved first international trophy. Final: France -Belgium 2-0
EC 1980 Host: Italy  Winner: W Germany
Uefa gave the European Championship a shot in the arm in 1980 by opting to make the event more of a spectacle with the introduction of a larger format, which would see eight teams qualify for the finals. Two groups of four were to be played out, with the winners going directly to the final in Rome.  Belgium and W.Germany (yet again), won their groups and in the final Horst Hrubesch flicked home a header with two minutes remaining though and that brought another European Championship victory for West Germany.
Final result: W.germany -Belgium 1-0
EC 1976 Host: Yugoslavia  Winner: Chekoslovakia
West Germany were on top of the world in 1976. The European champions and World Cup winners had good reason to assume that they were the best team on the planet and there were no signs that anything was about to change.Extra-time failed to produce a winner, so penalties were necessary and Uli Hoeness was the first to crack when he skied his spot-kick over the bar. Czechoslovakia won the final with the next penalty as Antonín Panenka kept his cool with the most impudent of chips and West Germany's reign was over - for four years at least.
Final :
Chekoslovakia-W.Ger. 2-2 A.ET. (5-3 on pen.)
EC 1972 Host: Belgium   Winner: W Germany
All eyes were on England, Italy and West Germany going into the 1972 European Championship qualifiers. The strongest forces in European football at that time all had reasons to be confident, though two of them were on a collision course which could only produce one winner and the other side wouldn't even make the semi-finals. West Germany were at their arrogant best in the final and the Soviets were psychologically beaten before they started after recently being on the wrong end of a 4-1 thrashing by the Germans, with none other than Gerd Müller scoring all four.
Final result: W.Germany -Soviet Unionen 2-1
EC 1968 Host: Italy   Vinner: Italy
The Nations Cup title gave way to the EC in 1968 and qualifying groups were used for  the first time to determine who would reach the quarter-finals. The final where decided after two games. Italy fielded a much-changed line-up in the second match and one of the big names missing from the original final was first on the scoresheet. Luigi Riva - guilty of several glaring misses - atoned for his profligacy with a left-footed drive  and Pietro Anastasi's volley put the replay beyond Yugoslavia's reach with just over half an hour gone… game set and match to the hosts again.
Final Result: Italy - Yugolavia 1-1, 2-0
EC 1964 Host: Spain   Vinner: Spain
The second Nations Cup had a much bigger turn-out than
the maiden competition, with England and Italy among those agreeing to enter for the first time, though West Germany would still not take part. The final match-up was laden with political significance - hosts Spain, who had refused to play the Soviet Union at the last Nations Cup, taking on the same side in front of the all-powerful man who had insisted they step aside, General Franco. It stayed 1-1 until the 84th minute when Marcelino Martínez headed in the decisive goal that settled the final in Spain's favour.
Final result: Spain -Soviet Unionen 2-1
EC 1960 Location: France  Winner: Sovietunionen
France were denied the honour of finishing third after
they were beaten 2-0 by the Czechs and that may account for the reason why less than 18,000 people turned up to watch the first Nations Cup final.
Those that stayed away missed a tense battle of wills,
with Yugoslavia taking a first-half lead through Milan Galic which was later cancelled out by Slava Metreveli.

The Soviet Union prevailed in extra-time as Ponedelnik's header earned them the title as the first champions of Europe.
Final result: Soviet - Yugoslavia 2-1
