Euro 2008

Exclusive chats with Cristiano Ronaldo, insider gossip from the Italian camp and tactical analysis from a host of expert coaches will be among the things we won't be doing over the next month. But we will be putting together daily European Championship updates, while also preparing comprehensive coverage of the tournament for the next edition of WSC. Will Euro 2008 live up to the claim we made during World Cup 94 that major championships are better when England aren't involved? Find out over the next four weeks.
