Van Basten in ‘88, Brolin in ‘92, Shearer in ‘96, Zlatan in 2012 – UEFA EURO tournaments have delivered probably some of the best ever moments of footballing history.

 

Now with just 100 days to go until kick-off of UEFA EURO 2016™, Carlsberg, the Official Beer of the Tournament has teamed up with the football freestyling duo and YouTube sensation – The F2 Freestylers – to recreate probably the best ten EURO moments from the past 40 years.

 

In a ten episode mini-series, Carlsberg and the F2 Freestylers pay homage to great goals and moments of footballing brilliance from matches including Netherlands vs. Soviet Union in 1988, Sweden vs England in 1992, Czech Republic vs. Portugal in 1996 and France vs. Portugal in 2000; add their commentary on what makes these probably some of the greatest in history and attempt to emulate each one move for move.

 

Replays of the action are seen through ‘Carlsberg Cam’ – filmed with a drone and cameras fixed to the F2 Freestylers, giving an entirely new perspective on these iconic footballing moments and bringing fans closer to what makes them probably some of the best in the world.

 

The 10 episodes will be released one by one for ten weeks from today [2nd March 2016] on Carlsberg’s new football hub, Carlsberg.Football, and Carlsberg’s Facebook and Twitter feeds, with each episode also offering global football fans the chance to win probably the world’s best competition – tickets for them and their mate to the Semi Final at the Stade de Lyon AND the chance to play on the same pitch the following day with legendary players from past EURO tournaments.

 

 

Billy Wingrove of the F2 Freestylers says,

 

“The Euros always delivers great football moments and whilst the pro’ players make it look easy, recreating them touch for touch is anything but. It’s lucky that we love a challenge! We can’t wait to see what unbelievable moves come out of Euro 2016 so with these recreations we’re hoping to inspire fans around the world to enter Carlsberg’s competition and take their chance to create their own moment of football history on pitch at the Stade de Lyon.”
