2000 HISTORY SECTION

Each week is devoted to a different tournament, with the next seven days looking back at the 2000 edition in Belgium and the Netherlands. We are following a broadly similar pattern each week, opening up with the team of the tournament on a Monday. On Tuesdays we will look at a particularly iconic image and ponder where the protagonists are now, while Wednesdays will be your chance to watch the best goals from that year's tournament.

Every Thursday we will hear from our 'EURO history makers', with Friday dedicated to a different record or milestone each week. The weekend will begin with a study of one of the quirkier characters or tales – our EURO cult heroes – and the week will come to a close with video highlights of that year's final.

In addition to all that, there will also be a raft of further individual match highlights.
