Daniel Schmidt (Der Spiegel, This Is America) takes the train with host Thomas Emerick to Euro '96 in England for Die Mannschaft vs. The Three Lions. Frankfurt to Manchester and then Manchester to London provides plenty of time to examine the soccer balance between these countries in the century leading up to and since this UEFA European Championship semifinals thriller. Also, whose side to take on '90s Britpop beefs, confluence with political tides of Labour and the Tories, and the influence of British pop culture on Daniel while growing up in Northwest Germany and going to school in the UK. In 1996, Germany was the betting favorite and spoiled the party in England. Will the Brits return the favor in 2024 as the Germans host?
