Relive two classic matches from Euro 96

England defender Gareth Southgate

Remember Euro 96, when football came home? Gazza’s dentist’s chair celebration? More penalty heartache – and for more than one nation?

It was a summer when the Spice Girls released their first single, the Prince and Princess of Wales got divorced and Alan Shearer became the most expensive footballer in the world when he moved from Blackburn to Newcastle for £15m.

To get you in the mood for Euro 2016, we’re going to relive the rollercoaster of emotions from two classic matches played during Euro 96.

England’s group game against Scotland and their semi-final tie against Germany will be replayed in full on the BBC website and on the Red Button.

We will bring you all of the action on 1 June and 8 June.

  • Scotland v England, Wembley Stadium – Wednesday 1 June, 19:00-22:30 BST

The games will be shown “as live” through BBC Sport’s digital service – via BBC Sport online, the mobile and tablet app, and through connected TVs and BBC Red Button.

We’ll take you back 20 years and replay those games in full along with text commentary and, crucially, your chance to contribute to the experience by sending in your thoughts on the action – and, if you’re old enough, your reflections and memories of the last major football tournament played on these shores.
