Euro 2008 program and results

The Euro 2008 championship held in Switzerland and Austria started today. We’ll keep you updated with the latest results throughout the whole tournament where 14 Eurovision countries plus two former ones, Italy and Austria, compete against each other.

Ok, football might not be the Eurovision Song Contest, although many football fans will claim that this fantastic game played with the feet can create music when done best. This spring we have however seen a couple of Eurovision Song Contest connections with former British participant, James Fox, recording a football song for his favourite team, British football fans singing an older Norwegian entry to cheer up their players and Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand comparing their dressing room with a Eurovision Song Contest.

In this 2008 edition of the European Championship 16 countries are taking part. Over 23 days they will be fighting for the trophy proving that they are the best national football team in Europe. The tournament has been played every fourth year since 1960 with Sovjet Union being the first winner, followed by Spain (1964), Italy (1968), West Germany (1972 and 1980), Czechoslovakia (1976), France (1984 and 2000), The Netherlands (1988), Denmark (1992), Germany (1996) and Greece (2004) winning it.
