It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to watch a live match of football.

The last Premier League match took place more than two months ago when Leicester thrashed Aston Villa 4-0 on a Monday night.

What have fans been doing in the last two months to get their football fix?

Well, many have been turning to old matches.

And for those of us in England, ITV will be helping with that in the coming weeks.

From today, they will be showing all 31 matches from Euro 1996 – the tournament staged in England.

The entire nation was captivated by the tournament in which England reached the semi-finals before losing to eventual winners Germany on penalties.

1996 UEFA Euro Championships Final Germany v Czech Republic

In a statement, ITV said: “With Euro 2020 postponed for twelve months, the ITV Hub has raided its archives to provide football fans with a slice of sports nostalgia as the platform unearths every match from Euro 96.

“Airing from May, ITV Hub takes a trip down sporting memory lane and will air all 31 games from one of the most closely contested tournaments in recent history.

“In addition, ITV4 will also play out the five games that featured the England football team in some of their most memorable head to heads, as well as the final between Germany and the Czech Republic.

“Football fans will be able to relive the drama from the epic summer of ’96, during which host nation England fought to bring the trophy back home, with a squad made up of sporting legends Alan Shearer, David Seaman, Paul Gascoigne, Sol Campbell and Teddy Sheringham.

“1996 was the last time England reached the semifinals of the European Championships and remains fondly remembered thanks to Baddiel and Skinner and The Lightning Seeds’ chart-topping anthem Three Lions (Football’s Coming Home).”
