West Germany 1-2 Netherlands
(Matthäus 55; Koeman 74, Van Basten 88)
1988 semi-finals, Hamburg

In a dramatic end to this semi-final, the Netherlands rallied after falling behind to Lothar Matthäus’s second-half penalty.

They did so thanks to goals by Ronald Koeman, also from a spot kick, and the irrepressible Marco van Basten, two minutes from time, to stun hosts West Germany and take the Oranje into a European Championship final for the first time. The Netherlands had at last beaten West Germany for the first time in 32 years, vengeance for the 1974 FIFA World Cup final.
