    Part bleeding but still handsome

    Italy are European champions. Jimbo, Carl Anka, James Horncastle, Raphael Honigstein, David Preece and Daniel Storey review a wonderful night for the Azzurri but a heart-breaking night for England who lose on penalties at Wembley.

    Gareth Southgate’s side take a very early lead but are pegged back and worn down by their opponent. Like the 2018 World Cup semi-final but worse. It’s an inspirational group of players but in hindsight, did England throw this Euros away? And did they play that much football in the tournament?

    As for Italy, we salute a team that every other team made changes to their system for. And of course, they had the amazing Chiellini. The star of this Italy team and finally a European champion.

    • PART 1: Carl Anka at Wembley (02m 00s)
    • PART 2: What went wrong for England? (16m 00s)

    For the penultimate pod of the Euros, Jimbo is joined by a bumper crew of James Horncastle, Michael Cox, Tom Williams and Duncan Alexander.

    Anticipation builds ahead of the final at Wembley on Sunday. Italy the complete team, managed by Mancini the serial winner. Whereas England look to be physically fresher. Are both teams already heroes and in a no-lose situation?

    We reminisce about a tournament including lots of goals, classic matches and most importantly, fans.

    And 15 years on from Italy’s last major tournament win, a chat about Zidane’s headbutt on Materazzi, much like the incident itself, gets out of hand.


    RUNNING ORDER: 
     
    • PART 1: England v Italy preview (02m 00s)
    • PART 2: Looking back at Euro 2020 (32m 00s)
    • PART 3: The odds with Paddy Power (47m 00s)
    • PART 4: Zidane’s headbutt 15 years on (50m 00s)

    Jimbo, Daniel Storey and Duncan Alexander bask in the glory of England reaching their first ever European Championship final.

    The Three Lions come from behind at Wembley to overcome Denmark and progress to the Euro 2020 final. England - masters of keep-ball, shaking off their demons and of shielding the ball and waiting for a free-kick. We salute the likes of Walker, Rice and Maguire.

    England will face Italy in the final who eliminated Spain on Tuesday. Alvaro Romeo informs us on how La Roja’s performance has been received and the extent of Barcelona’s struggles with their wage bill.

    Plus semi-final despair from 2014. And Emi Martinez’s sensational year.


    RUNNING ORDER: 
     
    • PART 1: England 2-1 Denmark (02m 00s)
    • PART 2: Spain’s exit and Barca’s salary struggles (33m 00s)
    • PART 3: The odds with Paddy Power (43m 30s)
    • PART 4: On This Day – Brazil 1-7 Germany (46m 30s)

    Wave of soppy emotion

    Wave of soppy emotion

    Jimbo is joined by James Horncastle, Adam Crafton and Daniel Storey as the Azzurri ascend to the final of Euro 2020.

    It took penalties and a little bit of luck but Italy beat Spain at Wembley and continue to give great value to this tournament. Meanwhile, the future looks bright for Spain with Pedri running the show. But should they have got rid of Ramos?

    England and Denmark compete on Wednesday to see who will face Italy in the final. Niels Harild tells us how the spirit of 92 is more of a positive than the curse of 66. And how does this group of England players compare to previous crops?

    Plus Southgate and Sir Bobby – two of a kind?

    RUNNING ORDER: 
     
    • PART 1: Italy through to the final at Spain’s expense (02m 00s)
    • PART 2: England v Denmark preview with Niels Harild (17m 30s)
    • PART 3: The odds with Paddy Power (33m 30s)
    • PART 4: On This Day – a big day for Bobby Robson (36m 30s)

    Jimbo, Daniel Storey, Carl Anka and Sasha Goryunov react to a fantastic night for the Three Lions in Rome.

    England cruise past Ukraine 4-0 and into the last 4 of Euro 2020. A performance that was everything we wanted it to be – ruthlessly efficient and an absence of jeopardy. We salute Southgate, Shaw and the Sterling Kane partnership.

    They will meet Denmark in the semi-finals at Wembley after the Danes dispatch the Czechs thanks to Joakim Maehle’s caramelo. But are they a bit overrated?

    Plus we revisit the greatest upset in Euros history – Greece going all the way in 2004.


    RUNNING ORDER: 
     
    • PART 1: Ukraine 0-4 England (03m 30s)
    • PART 2: Czech Republic 1-2 Denmark (20m 30s)
    • PART 3: The odds with Paddy Power (31m 30s)
    • PART 4: On This Day – Greece win the Euros (34m 00s)
