    Spaint/Italy from Euro 2008 being a “classic” is a bit of a stretch….

  2. Bishopville Red says:

    What a shame; in Canada they’ve been showing them for weeks and started well back in the 70s. I watched the ’76 final between Czechoslovakia and West Germany the other day. Getting to watch Platini in ’84 and watching the ’88 tournament again, where Marco Van Basten came of age, was also great fun.

    The older matches are way more fun to (re)visit.

    All copies of the France/ Romania Group Stage Game in 2008 must be destroyed. The worst football game I’ve ever seen. I still have nightmares over it

  4. Matt says:

    The Croatia-Turkey game also wasn’t great until the 119th minute really, Croatia made the mistake of playing too defensively…and as a Croatia fan I refuse to watch that game ever again

    But I will watch the Germany-Croatia Euro 96 match even though they lost ;)

  5. Frank says:

    Any soccer in the US is welcomed by me… There is not nearly enough aired here

      they show Premier League matches almost every weekend on espn2 and you have Fox Soccer Channel and FSC+ and MLS on NBC. That’s more than what was available a decade ago.
