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.

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.

UEFA Euro 50 Classic Matches is one of the most comprehensive football dvd's I've ever brought. I'm a big fan of this tournament and often I find the Euro's deliver more excitement than the World Cup. The match listing is excellent and features so many key historic games and features every final between 1964 and 2008 (No USSR from 1960 though). Each game has a really good length (around 25 minutes each) and gives you a decent flow of each game. The match selection here is excellent and there's not much I'd change about it.

This set has a wonderful set of matches so it should be a 5-star right? Well it almost certainly would have been had it not been for the aspect ratio. As the 1-star reviewer pointed out, all matches filmed on a 4:3 screen have not only been stretched (I could forgive that), but also the top and bottom of the screen have been chopped to make everything widescreen! This is flat out disgraceful from UEFA because these matches should be enjoyed without a stupid compromise to the picture.

Despite this horrendous flaw, I would still recommend getting this set because there is just too much wonderful football here not to, the matches from 1984 and 1988 in particular are matches that must be seen and shown to younger fans so they can see how different (and in my opinion better) the game was back then. And all of the modern Euro's have been covered well too, and its a much better set than the "Great Matches of European Football" box set.

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...

I literally have no idea what the first review is talking about (mainly because I don't understand most of the words and terms he's said!) but, in short, I totally disagree with him.

I'll be honest, I haven't watched the entire boxset yet (there's a lot of games!) but so far, I've thoroughly enjoyed it. These are produced really well and bring back some great memories, particularly from some classic England games for me. If you like your classic matches and reminiscing to the good old days, this is up there with the very best!
