Qualifying for Euro 2004 took place from September 2002 to November 2003. Fifty teams were divided into ten groups and each team played the others in their group twice, once at home and once away. The 1st placed teams automatically qualified for EURO 2004, and the ten group runners-up took part in play-offs to determine another five teams. Including the host nation Portugal, who were not obliged to go through the qualifying process (as is usual), 16 nations competed in Euro 2004.

Greeks celebrated the victory of their team in the streets long into the evening.

The final was played on July 4, and was almost a replay of the opening game: the hosts Portugal versus Greece. Greece won 1-0 with a single goal from a corner via Angelos Charisteas' head in the 57th minute. The success of Greece, who had never won a single match in their previous appearances in any finals tournament, was totally unexpected (Bloomberg reports that UK bookmakers gave them 100-1 odds at winning prior to the tournament), but their organisation, passing ability and solid defensive play took their opponents and the rest of the football world by surprise.

During the opening ceremony, the Portuguese portrayed a ship, symbolizing the voyages of the Portuguese explorers. Such was the enthusiasm that overtook the Greek fans that the ship became the symbol of the Greek victory, as Greeks where chanting for the "Pirate Ship" (πειρατικό), as the Greek National Team was instantly named, into the early morning hours.
