England failed at Euro 96, insists Sheringham

Former England, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham has revealed he looks back on Euro 96 as a failure, the Daily Mirror has reported. England, the hosts of the tournament, reached the semi-finals, only to lose to Germany on penalties.



Sheringham formed a strike partnership with Alan Shearer for the tournament and scored twice against the Netherlands in a famous 4-1 victory, but told the newspaper that gallantly losing in a penalty shootout was not an acceptable outcome for the side led by Terry Venables. The ex-Portsmouth striker insisted anything other than victory was a failure, adding that this year’s generation of England players should think the same way too.


He said: “We were not happy losing in the semi-final in Euro 96. It is no good. You don’t get remembered as runners-up, getting knocked out in the semi-finals or the quarters. Who cares? If [the current team] come back and say, ‘We did alright,’ what good is that? It would just be another tournament that we didn’t win. You’re in it to win it.


Sheringham stressed however that he thoroughly enjoyed the experience of competing in a major international event on home soil, but was full of regret that England passed up the greatest chance to win a trophy they are ever likely to have.
