Match report and video clips (no longer available due to copyright infringement) from the game's action
Portuguese substitute Costinha scored a stoppage time winner to give his side a 1-0 victory over Romania in Euro 2000 Group A and a place in the quarter-finals. Costinha rose unmarked to head home a Luis Figo free kick in the fourth and last minute of stoppage time. A largely uneventful match had seemed to be heading for a goalless draw with Romania marking Portugal's influential midfielders Figo and Rui Costa out of the game and preventing them from running riot as they did in the 3-2 win over England. Romania, who drew their opening game with Germany, will have to play their last match against England without veteran midfielder Gheorghe Hagi, who picked up a second yellow card.
