    So what are your earliest memories of these big championships?
    Mine was during World Cup 1994. I supported Italy in the championships, and Roberto Baggio was my favourite player. I remember that I was in Canada at the time of the final, and my cousins, me and my brother (and probably others from my family) watched italy vs. Brazil. 0:0 was the end score, and then the dreaded penalties. I was so gutted when Roberto Baggio scuffed his over the bar, that I ran upstairs, crying, saying I hated italy and I'd never support them again (I was only 7/8 years old) Ironic thing is that I never did support them like that again.

    Euro 96, when Southgate missed that penalty. Although at the time I wasn't really into football so I wasn't too upset. France 98 was when I really got into it. Owens goal against Romania, and of course the Argentina match. I cried after that!

    As far as Euros go I think when England drew 1-1 with Switzerland in Euro 96. 1996 was the year I properly got into football. But I did see Baggio's penalty in the final of USA 94. And one of the first games, Brazil vs Scotland.

    I cried after England's penalty loss in 1998. I'm such a cry-baby when it comes to losing

    Me too! I cried when Liverpool got knocked out the Champions League to Bayer Leverkusen. And when utd scored against us in the last minute to knock us out the FA cup about 5 seasons ago. I was so upset after the England-Argentina match!
