Euro 2000 were the 11th UEFA European Football Championships and were jointly hosted by central European countries, Belgium and Netherlands in an unprecedented move which sparked the trend of smaller sized countries bidding together to host the tournament such as Austria and Switzerland in 2008.

The final was hosted in the King Baudouin Stadium in Belgium which was the name given to the Heysel Stadium after it was rebuilt in the years following the stadium disaster in 1985 during the European cup final between Juventus and Liverpool.

In this match France defeated Italy 2-1 with the then World Champions France, defeating the Italians via a David Trezeguet golden goal in extra time, a rule which has since been scrapped by organisers of International Football tournaments.
