Euro 2004 was held for the first time by Portugal after their bid was selected ahead of neighbouring rivals Spain on 12th October 1999. The tournament consisted of 16 teams and was arguably one of the most unpredictable tournaments of all time.
Powerhouses Germany, Spain and Italy were all knocked out during the group stage with France, the defending Champions after Winning Euro 2000 were eliminated by unlikely underdogs and eventual winners Greece.
The Final was held in Estádio da Luz, the home stadium of S.L Benfica with hosts Portugal losing a close encounter with Greece by 1 goal to nil.
