Lego Santiago Bernabéu Stadium Light Kit
Deeply rooted in the history of Spanish football, the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium has been a witness to some of the most thrilling moments in European Championships. In 1984, France hosted the European Championship, but it was at the Bernabéu where a tense semi-final unfolded. After a thrilling 1-1 draw, Spain prevailed in the penalty shootout, winning 5-4 and advancing to the final. Although they ultimately fell to France, that semi-final remains a pivotal moment in Spanish football's history.

Back in 1964, the Bernabéu Stadium hosted the final of the European Nations' Cup, the predecessor of today's European Championship. In a match that marked the stadium's first hosting of a major European national team fixture, Spain defeated the mighty Soviet Union 2-1 on their home turf, claiming their first European title. Marcellino's late winner in the 84th minute sealed a historic victory that has profoundly influenced the development of Spanish football.

The Bernabéu Stadium's imprint on the European Championship's legacy is unmistakable. From that victorious 1964 final to the pulsating 1984 semi-final, this stadium has been a stage for some of Spanish football's most glorious chapters. Whether it's club or national team football, the Bernabéu remains a symbolic holy ground, its influence and importance enduring through the ages.
