The final tournament of UEFA Euro 1976 was a single-elimination tournament involving the four teams that qualified from the quarter-finals. There were two rounds of matches: a semi-final stage leading to the final to decide the champions. The final tournament began with the semi-finals on 16 June and ended with the final on 20 June at the Stadion Crvena zvezda in Belgrade. Czechoslovakia won the tournament with a 5–3 penalty shoot-out victory over West Germany.[1]

FormatEdit

Any game in the final tournament that was undecided by the end of the regular 90 minutes was followed by thirty minutes of extra time (two 15-minute halves). If scores were still level after 30 minutes of extra time, there would be a penalty shootout (at least five penalties each, and more if necessary) to determine who progressed to the next round.
