*** The only exception so far was in the Friendly match just three days after the Paris gun attacks in November 2015. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming The English welcomed the French team by lighting up Wembley in the colours of the Tricolour, emblazoning the motto of the Republic on the side of the stadium, replacing the traditional giant St. George's Cross in the home end with a Tricolour, impeccably observing the traditional minute's silence, before joining in loudly and enthusiastically with 'La Marseillaise', the French national anthem]] (fittingly, a [[BattleCry rousing call to arms]]) - and [[CrowdSong 90,000 football fans can sing extremely loudly.]]] And then they didn't make a peep about their unexpected victory afterwards (the first one in nearly ten attempts since the late 1990's). Some things are more important than football.
** England and Scotland, England being Scotland's 'Auld Enemy'. While they've yet to meet in the Euros, their matches are basically just a continuation of a rivalry that's been going for over a thousand years and shows no signs of stopping any time soon.

** More obviously and annoyingly, the British TV coverage always involves a TokenBlack pundit. Sometimes this is fine, as there are plenty of talented minority players in the EnglishPremierLeague. Sometimes they end up with someone from Francophone Africa who simply doesn't have the command of English to give decent commentary or punditry in English.

Known by its full title of the UEFA European Football Championship, and more commonly referred to as "Euro (year)". It has been held every 4 years since 1960, coinciding with the Summer UsefulNotes/OlympicGames. This is the other primary [[TheBeautifulGame football]] competition for Europe's national teams. It fills the void between [[TheWorldCup World Cups]] by being held 2 years out of phase from each World Cup, and within Europe is nearly as highly regarded.

*** The team that contested Euro 2000, composed primarily of 1998 World Cup winners, averted this by being quite diverse.

** And, of course, England and France. As is standard for these countries, they will ''never'' miss the opportunity to kick the hell out of each other. And then, naturally, the winner will gloat about it. Loudly and at great length.

* ArchEnemy: England and Portugal, since Euro 2000 and 2004. Portugal and France, since France beat them in the semi-finals in 1984 and 2000. England and Germany...we have some more. After all, this is Europe we're talking about.

** When it comes to the qualification phase, we usually have: Andorra, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, and ESPECIALLY San Marino, who never won a match in official competitions. Gibraltar might on the way to become a rival to San Marino in this department.
