Euro History

Whether you are interested in buying the France away kit or waiting for the new 2015 2016 home jersey, Soccer Box is the perfect place to shop. Now is also the perfect time to stock up on new French football gear: after all, 2016 could easily bring a European Championship title to the Blues!

The French national side has appeared in eight Euro tournaments since the event's inception back in 1960. Of those appearances, they've won two titles and finished fourth on two additional occasions. Two of those high-ranking finishes came in years where they hosted the tournament-a fact that predicts good things for the country's third hosting gig in 2016!

The Hosting Advantage

As fans buying the new France away jersey 2015 2016 probably recall, the French actually hosted the inaugural European Championship event in 1960. They lost to Yugoslavia in the semifinals, and lost the consolation match to Czechoslovakia to end up in fourth place. Still, even qualifying for that first tournament was an achievement, and it was one that paved the way for better things to come.

The Blues won their first Euro title the next time they hosted the event, in 1984. This time, they lost no matches, dominating the competition and thrilling the fans who were wearing the France away kit or home jersey. The group stage brought satisfying wins against Denmark, Belgium, and Yugoslavia, while the quarters saw France toppling Portugal in extra time. In the finals, the host squad beat Spain 2-0 to claim their first European Championship title.

Euro 2016 Prospects

Needless to say, the wearers of the France away jersey 2015 2016 would gladly accept a repeat of the 1984 tournament for Euro 2016. It would be particularly rewarding for the Blues to beat Spain in the finals again, since the Spanish squad is the reigning two-time consecutive champion of the event.

As the hosts, the Blues certainly have an advantage, and are automatically contenders for a third Euro title as a result. Furthermore, since Spain has shown a lot of weakness in the past year (as evidenced by their early exit from the 2014 World Cup), the tournament is, for all intents and purposes, wide open.

The French side definitely showed promise in last year's World Cup, too. They finished at the top of their group, with impressive performances against Switzerland and Honduras. They also beat Nigeria in the round of 16 before being eliminated in the quarterfinals by Germany. The Germans, of course, went on to win the World Cup.

Will France win another major title when they host the European Championship next year? We will have to wait to find out. In the meantime, though, you can show your support for the Blues with a brand new 2015 2016 France away kit or training jersey from Soccer Box!
