96 is the nostalgia vote - I get it I voted for Italia 90.
But actually, a lot of the games were way worse than Italia 90.
Euro 2000 gave us:
Portugal 3 England 2
Romania 3 England 2
Yugoslavia 3 Slovenia 3
Spain 4 Yugoslavia 3
France 2 Holland 3
France 2 Spain 1
Holland 6 Yugoslavia 1
France 2 Portugal 1
Italy 0 Holland 0 (I remember this as an exciting 0-0)
Same as WC thread - 96 purely for being 9 and completely absorbed in football. Great games, close to home, Scotland part of it, England getting put out on pens in the SF. Only downside was a fairly boring final. Just has a bit of nostalgia for me.
Same mate, I’m going to rewatch that game tonight actually!
Has to be France 2016 for me, I was born the last year NI were at a tournament and being so dire most of my life (the year and a half without even scoring) pretty much everyone thought we would never get to the big time again. Actually being at the tournament was a dream come true, the buzz, the beer the craic and actually winning a game. Shame about the weather though. I will be watching our match that we qualified against Greece on Thursday night with a few beers instead of watching our play off against Bosnia.
Euro 96 was brilliant, also love watching the Dutch team in any tournament in the 2000’s, the players they had...
