When Football Came Home is the story of the 1996 European Championship played out in England, a tournament which became the centrepiece of a momentous and unforgettable British summer. Set against a backdrop of Britpop, Cool Britannia and the unstoppable rise of Tony Blair, the England team went closer to winning a tournament than at any point since 1966. It was a summer that nobody really wanted to end - and certainly not as it did, losing against Germany on penalties.
