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.
During the World Cup 2002 qualification, Portugal won the group. Several problems and poor judgment decisions occurred during the preparation and tournament itself – shopping sprees by players were widely reported in the Portuguese press. Questionable managing choices and some amateurism, including the same lack of agreement on prizes. Portugal underachieved and ended third in its group stage, subsequently eliminated.
