Nuno Gomes had given Portugal the lead in the 19th minute. France equalised in the 51st minute through Thierry Henry.

This video clip is rather large (about 2 minutes long) as it includes the French players celebrations and extended replays. I therefore produced it only at 225 kbps and on the small screen as it would be a very large file otherwise. If anyone of you wants it on a larger screen or at a higher bandwith, please let me know and I will see what I can do.

Zidane (117, pen.) (2-1). He scored from the penalty spot to send France into the final.
