In the qualifications for the 2000 Euro, Portugal finished second, just one short of first place Romania, but the Portuguese team had the best performance by any runner-up and therefore qualified. In the final stage, they defeated England 3–2, Romania 1–0, and Germany 3–0, to finish atop their group, and then defeated Turkey in the quarter-finals. In the semi-final meeting with France, Portugal were eliminated in extra time when Zinedine Zidane converted a penalty.
Austrian referee Gunter Benko awarded the spot kick for a handball after Abel Xavier blocked a shot. Xavier, Nuno Gomes and Paulo Bento were all given lengthy suspensions for shoving the referee. The final result was 2–1.
