The UEFA Euro 1968 Final consisted of two football matches between Italy and Yugoslavia that took place on 8 and 10 June 1968 at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome to determine the winner of UEFA Euro 1968. The first match ended in a draw (1-1), which called for a replay to be played so the winner could be determined. Italy won the replay 2-0, with the goals coming from Luigi Riva, a low left foot shot inside the area and Pietro Anastasi with another low left foot shot.[3]
