All of England’s matches from the iconic Euro ’96 campaign and the Final to be shown on ITV 4.
So once more you will be able to relive all the magic moments from England’s nearly men.
Football’s Coming Home
An opening day draw with an un-fancied Switzerland, Gazza sending Colin Hendry for a hotdog with audacious piece of skill and a Dutch demolition under the Wembley lights.
Euro ’96 was also home to some memorable goals, Karel Poborsky (Remember him?) and that chip against Portugal.
Davor Suker leaving a certain Peter Schmeichel stranded with another example of exquisite chipping technique and a last minute Patrick Kluivert strike in that drubbing by England which eliminated Scotland from the tournament on goals scored.
Our heroes were a whisker away from an unlikely final appearance when Darren Anderton struck a post and Gazza failed to get on the end of a Alan Shearer cross during extra time of the semi final.
In the end our hopes were for winning Euro ’96 were extinguished as they had been six years earlier in Turin at Italia 90.
This again was via the torture of a penalty shoot-out against our arch rivals and chief tormentors, Germany.
So sit back and get ready to return to Euro ’96 when football oh so nearly came home, ITV we salute you!
