Five sporting events to watch during the COVID-19 lockdown

Euro ’96

Theres no better sight than a packed Old Wembley in the blazing sun with Stuart Pearce belting out ‘God save the Queen’. Well to see this beauty then go on to ITV Hub and you can see the full tournament. I recommend heading straight to England vs Scotland, you’ll see one of the most iconic England goals of all time, by a Mr. Paul Gascoigne.

The Ashes 2005

Talk about the resurgence of a sport. The Ashes 2005 series drew the country to their television screens as the drama unfolded. Players like Andrew Flintoff and Kevin Pietersen become national icons as they overcame an iconic Australian team. Arguably the greatest test cricket series of all time. You can find highlights across various platforms including YouTube and Channel 4.

One of the greatest days in England Rugby’s history and a career defining moment for Johnny Wilkinson. England came up against Australia and won in the most dramatic circumstances. A true sporting spectacle and one that will bring some excitement back to yourself during lockdown.
