Overall, the site is not a bad performer, being broad but precise
and focused in its content.
It’s good to see the site concentrating on the teams, statistics and
match reports and that it has not resorted to superfluous graphics or
Although the design of the site is not much to shout about from the
terraces - that montage header is definitely a booking for a start -
there is a good supply of data from the cross-referencing database.
There is certainly enough cheer to hold the attention of any demanding
fan who will be pleased to see that, here at least, all the teams are on
a level playing field, so to speak.
Site information is good and the reportage is slick, with real audio
files and pictures going up rapidly after each match. Updates were still
being made to the site several days after the golden goal from France’s
David Trezeguet brought the tournament to a dramatic end.
On the downside, the features could be weightier and are not quite up to
the standard of the footballunlimited website. Match Pack strikes as the
strongest feature and the user votes are fun - the Euro 2000 site should
make more of this.
Joao Pinto’s magnificent winning header against England is down as the
most popular goal. Hmmm. Perhaps. But why can’t I vote for Luis Figo’s
35-yard strike from the same game?
In summary, Ron - while lacking any attacking flair, the official Euro
2000 site plays a solid enough game.
