BBC Sport - Thierry Henry presents a documentary looking at the stories of Euros gone by.
Thierry Henry: My France, My Euros
- From the section Football
Former French international footballer Thierry Henry presents this thought-provoking documentary which focuses on the stories of Euros gone by and the social and cultural impact football has across Europe. As France prepares to host the Euros following the recent Paris attacks, Henry explores how something as simple as football can unify a nation and bring people together to celebrate diversity.
The documentary considers the impact previous European Championships have had on certain nations, from the success of the Dutch in 1988 to England's ability to unite the country without lifting the trophy in 1996. Also discussed are the remarkable tales of Denmark in 1992 and Greece in 2004, plus Spain's first trophy in 44 years at Euro 2008, which has become part of their nation's history and cultural identity.
