About to do a madness

Jimbo’s back with part 1 of our preview of Euro 2020, in the company of Michael Cox, Tom Williams and Sasha Goryunov.

The Three Lions head into essentially a home tournament as favourites. Paul Ince tells us what life inside the camp was like at Euro 96.

Are England and Croatia worse than we think they are? And are Scotland and Czech Republic better?

Can Wales match their semi-final exploits of 5 years ago, with or without a striker? They’re in the same group as a young Turkey side who we’re very excited about watching.

James Horncastle gives us the latest on Roberto Mancini’s Italy, unbeaten in 3 years and finally building the team around their best players.

Kristof Terreur explains why Belgium’s golden generation are keen to play down their chances of a first major tournament victory.

Plus how Michael incurred the wrath of the Finnish football fans.
