Euro Moments No.5: France 3-2 Portugal, 1984

Now, I was barely a teenager when I saw this game, but seem to remember being a bit of an emotional wreck after it.

France were the hosts and clearly the best team in the competition, but the Portuguese not only took them to extra time in this semi-final, but took the lead in extra time, until late, late on, Domergue equalised, before Tigana set up Platini for the winner.

Motson went close to screaming madness while commentating, but he was only expressing the emotions almost everyone who was watching the game must have been feeling.
