The final tournament was held in France.

It was won by the Soviet Union 2-1 who beat Yugoslavia in Paris after extra time.

The tournament was a knockout competition; just 17 teams entered with some notable absences (West Germany and Italy among them).

The teams would play home-and-away matches until the semi-finals; the final four teams would move on to the final tournament, whose host was selected after the teams became known.
