As the build up to England’s game against Ukraine tonight begins, The Knowledge are looking back (waaay back) to a time we all remember: Euro ’96, when English football was enjoying a real moment (and when Shearer still had hair).
Most of us back then were just boys, at school and DESPERATE to get home in time for the footie. It was exciting, exhilirating in fact, and – most importantly – England were on a winning streak (sure Germany lifted the trophy in the end, but we had a mighty good stab at it). Will we enjoy the same success this time round? Can we go all the way?
Well, without further ado, here’s a few nostalgic pics and videos of our favourite past Euro championship to get you lot in the right spirit for tonight’s match! Enjoy…
THE ENGLAND ’96 TEAM
Oi, Gazza – the camera’s this way mate.
SHEARER (WITH HAIR!) AND SHERINGHAM
Is this really they looked like in 1996?
Belting out the national anthem – go on lads!
The build-up to the England/Germany semi final. Phenomenal.
Altogether now, at the top of your lungs, “Three lions on a shirt…”
Re-live the goals, penalties and all…
COME ON ENGLAND!!
