The UEFA Euro 1984 Final was a football match played on 27 June 1984 at Parc des Princes in Paris, France to determine the winner of UEFA Euro 1984. The match featured tournament hosts, France, who went into the match as favourites and arguably the best team in Europe,[2] and Spain, who qualified for the final tournament with a highly unlikely 12-1 win over Malta.

France midfielder Michel Platini opened the scoring in the 57th minute with his ninth goal of the tournament, a low free-kick which spilled through the hands of the diving Spanish keeper Luis Arconada and over the goal line. Bruno Bellone doubled France's lead in the final minute with a left footed clip over the advancing goalkeeper to give them a 2–0 victory. Bellone's goal was the only one of France's fourteen goals to be scored by a striker.
