Yeah, England beat Germany 1-0 in their second match of Euro 2000. It wasn't a particularly good match, but a header from Alan Shearer won it for us, the first time England had beaten a German team in a competitive fixture since 66. A 3-2 loss to Portugal in the opening match - after having been 2-0 up inside the opening 10 minutes - and the aforementioned loss to Romania sent us home early though. The Germans did indeed finish bottom of the group- I think they lost all three of their matches.

 

The first international tournament that I can remember is USA 94, which is the only one of the past ten World Cups (including the current one) that England have failed to qualify for; with none of the home nations in that year's World Cup, most people opted to cheer on the Republic of Ireland instead.

 

The first international tournament I watched England in was Euro 96. I was at Wembley for the quarter-final against Spain, to see what until last week ago was the only penalty shootout England had ever won, and I was there again four days later for the semi-final against Germany; had they reached the final, I would've gone to that too.

If Gazza had been an inch taller, we'd have won that semi.

Yup. And Darren Anderton came close to getting a golden goal in extra time as well, when he hit the post with the keeper beaten.

"it coming home" is memes from other countries

 

every single match has england saying "we're gonna lose" and shit

 

dont think that memes from other countries is "england thought they'd win after one game", the cocky shit from england died after the 2014 world cup

 

come back when the usa can beat *censored*ing trinidad and tobago

'It's coming home' is a meme from what english speak country?

 

oh no, 30 years ago england did a song about the world cup being hosted in england

 

and then for the next 30 years OTHER COUNTRIES spammed it

 

check every reddit thread, none of the highest upvoted people saying it are england flags. no one in england says it seriously

 

if people think they did, they didnt pay enough attention to WHO was saying it

Well tell whoever the English announcer for Fox Sports was to stop cause he was asking England players after the game last week if the cup was coming home. Ian Wright was on TV and kept saying its going home.

Fox Sports, American commentators. theyre as deluded as you

 

omg, one former england player says he think we can win and that counts for 50 million englishmen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

99% of the coming home memes were either other countries or england fans joking at their own expense of previous cocky campaigns
