EURO time tunnel: 1960 in focus

UEFA.com will be looking back at a different EURO every week between now and this summer's tournament in France, picking out the best goals, images, stories and characters.

In the build-up to UEFA EURO 2016, UEFA.com will be trawling through the annals to pick out the best stories, characters, goals and highlights from the 14 previous final tournaments.

Each week will be devoted to a different tournament, starting 56 years ago when Henri Delaunay's dream was realised in France. We will follow 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 be a raft of further individual match highlights and, starting at the end of April, a weekly poll on Twitter asking you to choose which game you want to watch again.
