With England set to play in a World Cup semi-final (we still can’t believe it, either), it’s time to look at the side’s past successes, the last of which being in Euro 96.
The competition – the one where the Three Lions built up a summer of expectation with Alan Shearer, Steve McManaman and Paul Gascoigne – will be revisited in an ITV documentary tonight.
What can we expect? Although England were beaten at the semi-finals of the home tournament by Germany (who else?), the competition is certainly one to remember, if only for Gareth Southgate’s saved penalty kick that saw the side’s exit.
Highlights on the field also included Paul Gascoigne’s individual brilliance against Scotland, Stuart Pearce’s moment of redemption against Spain and the all-round excellence of England’s demolition of the Dutch.
