Talk:UEFA Euro 1996

Section on Terrorism
I have included a mention of the 1996 Manchester bombing, as it occurred during the ongoing tournament and influenced security measures during the group stage match between Germany and Russia. Since the article on UEFA Euro 2012 mentions a smaller terrorist attack that took place over a month before the actual tournament, I believe the Manchester bombing needs to be mentioned as well.
I disagree and have deleted this piece of irrelevance. Instead I have included controvery of English fans stabbing foreigners they believed to be German after losing to Germany in the semi finals. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 00:39, 27 May 2012 (UTC)
Golden Goal / Bierhoff
The text says: As the game went into extra time, it was Bierhoff who scored the Golden Goal (after a mistake from the Czech goalkeeper, and the first Golden Goal in the history of international football) to give Germany another major tournament success. As far as I know, this is not correct (or, at least, misleading): according to the German-speaking Wikipedia-article about the Golden Goal, the first Golden Goal in FIFA-history was shot in the quarterfinals of the 1993 FIFA World Youth Championship. It was Australia's 2:1-victory over Uruguay, the goal was shot by Anthony Carbone. Thomasnimmesgern 20:54, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
- International football would suggest senior matches though, as opposed to Youth matches. Maybe it could be worded a little clearer - although it may still be incorrect even if you discount the Youth match. blankfrackis 14:10, 24 June 2007 (UTC)
I deleted the bit about the 3 lions song, as it wasn't relevent at all to the general scope of the page. That information is biased towards england, and should go on the three lions page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:00, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
Best player / Klinsmann?
The best player chosen by the Uefa was Dieter Eilts and not as saying Klinsmann maybe someone can change that
