U.S.S.R., or Russia. It was a football game in the Euro final in 1988, and a very uncommon instance. The Soviet Union contested the match. This match was the final European championship to see in the West, and East Germans reenlisted to become Germany in 1990, the Soviet Union collapsed into fifteen independent countries in 1991, and Yugoslavia broke up into six separate nations and one disputed territory in the early 1990s.

In this particular game, the Dutch secured the match 2-0. Captain Ruud Gullit achieved the goals. Gullit managed to score the opening goal with a header in the first half, from a Van Basten assist. In this game, the Netherlands were crowned European champions for the first time.

The correct answer to this question is C, U.S.S.R. The Euro Final of 1988 was a football match. It was played on June 25, 1988, to help determine the winner of the UEFA 1988. The U.S.S.R. played in this final, which ended up being their last European Championship.

The Netherlands won the match 2-0. They had goals coming from captain Ruud Gullit and Marco van Basten. The match was held in Olympiastadion, Munich. Over 62,770 people were in attendance for the match. This was also the first match won by the Netherlands, even though they had prepared in two previous FIFA World Cups.
