Euro Moments No.3 : Yugoslavia 3-4 Spain, 2000

It's not often I feel compelled to leave my chair during a group phase game that doesn't involve England, but at the end of this one, I must have been standing up for at least five minutes.

The Spanish were 3-2 down so deep into injury time, they were nearly coming out the other side. Yet, rather like Man City in the Premiership this season (a smooth, seamless link to the current day for you), they found a couple of goals in a couple of minutes to completely turn this one around.

Yugoslavia were so gutted, they went out of business or changed their name or something, though as you might expect, this assessment isn't historically accurate.
