The UEFA Euro 1996 Final was a football match played on 30 June 1996 at Wembley Stadium in London, England, to determine the winner of UEFA Euro 1996. The match featured tournament favourites, Germany, who knocked out hosts England in the previous round and Czech Republic, playing in only their first European Championship since the break-up of Czechoslovakia. Both teams had qualified for the knockout stage from Group C of the tournament's group stage, with Germany winning 2–0 in the teams' earlier meeting.

Germany won the final 2–1, with Oliver Bierhoff scoring the golden goal in the 95th minute.[2] Bierhoff had earlier equalised in the 73rd minute after Patrik Berger scored a penalty for Czech Republic on 59 minutes after Karel Poborský had been tripped.[3]
