Yes, they do exist but you have to go back to Sweden 1992 and England 1996 to find them.

The ’92 programme features Ally McCoist as our cover boy, alongside the likes of David Platt, Ruud Gullit and Rudi Voller. There were only eight finalists back then and by way of clarification, our opponents the OSS were really the CIS!

Four years later a composite programme covers the three matches played at Villa Park, Birmingham involving Scotland, Switzerland and the Netherlands.There were now sixteen finalists.

So when will we see their likes again? Well hopefully in France next June as one of the twenty-four finalists.
