4.0 out of 5 stars Great viewing..but... 29 Dec 2012
Format:DVD
I'd give this a five star rating if it were not for the match commentary which is dubbed and not live from the time. It's farsical and this DVD would have been perfect had they not done that. They should have used original commentry from the likes of Brian Moore and co.

That said, there are 50 great matches and the running time for each game is just right at 30 mins. I really enjoyed re-living these games, and also watching games from decades ago which I'd never seen before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flawed but still a great addition. 29 May 2013
By JUDE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having read the very negative review from another customer I was wary of buying this set. The points he makes are very salient, the picture has been stretched and the vast majority of games do have dubbed in commentary. However these flaws although damaging are not fatal. Modern technology means we can change the picture settings on our television. I am as fussy as the next person but that problem was easily taken care of. As for the commentary, the lack of original commentators is more irritating for the older viewer, most young people couldn`t care less if they miss out on the dulcet tones of John Motson or Brian Moore. Much more relevant is the fact the crowd noise is original, believe me, having a dubbed in crowd noise would really damage this. I have heard a few of those in my day. Shudder. The choice of matches is really good, the great players in Euro history (Zidane, Platini, Van Basten, Muller, Riva, Schuster etc) all feature and the games are just the right length for such a collection. I would definitely recommend the set to any football fanatic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Opinions vary. 10 Aug 2012
Format:DVD
Contrary to all the people saying the dubbed commentary being a joke, awful etc, I think it's pulled off ok. Most of the matches are either great or good. A few ok ones. I missed Euro 2008 but some great highlights in these discs, though the final was just ok. England winning just ONE match says it all. Disc 2 and disc 8 are my favourites.

5.0 out of 5 stars great collection 30 May 2012
By Jamo
Format:DVD
I've never been one to buy football dvd's but after seeing an ad for this i decided to give it a go. I have to say it is a really great collection for any student of the game, with 50 games included spanning five decades of one of the biggest tournament's in the world. All the iconic players are featured such as Beckenbauer, Platini and van Basten as well as the modern masters Zidane, Ronaldo and Xavi.

There are about 25 minutes of highlights for each game, meaning this is no quick review of what happened. you get the opportunity to experience the ebb and flow of the games as well as the stand out moments, making it brillant viewing on a rainy day (there's over 20 hours of football, so for about 1 an hour you definitely get your money's worth).

I found it really interesting to watch the games from pre-1990 that i didn't know much about (Panenka's chipped penalty is a stand out moment) and of course there was the chance to watch england lose on penalties... again! There are several england games featured including the 4-2 against holland at euro 96 and the win against croatia at euro 2004, and the tragedies (germany, france, portugal) are also in there that bring back a lot of memories. Hopefully now chelsea have shown you can beat the Germans at penalties england can as well...
