FILE - In this June 30, 1996 file picture Oliver Bierhoff of Germany, celebrates after scoring the winning "Golden Goal" during extra-time to secure the European Soccer Championship against the Czech Republic at Wembley Stadium in London. In 514 matches for club and country, German wunder-forward Oliver Bierhoff scored 226 times. Yet only once did he celebrate by whipping off his shirt: when he left-footed the golden goal that made Germany the European champion in  1996. That winner against the Czech Republic, after just four minutes of extra time, was the first ever golden goal scored in a major international competition. "For sure the most important goal in my career," Bierhoff says. (AP Photo/Santiago Lyon, File)
