Euro Challenge 1: Iconic Euros Goals

To kick-off our VR Euro Challenges, we’re going back in time to recreate these five iconic Euros goals

June 14, 2024

As announced last week, to celebrate this summer’s European Championships, we're launching our very own VR Euros challenges.

Based on real-life moments from the tournament itself, these challenges will put you in the place of some of the world's best players, and put your skills to the test.

A new challenge will be set live each week of the tournament on our world leading VR app. 

But to kick-start these challenges, we’re first taking users back in time to see if they can play their part in recreating history with these five iconic Euros goals.

Marco van Basten vs. Soviet Union (1988)

At the 1988 Euros, Marco van Basten scored this spectacular volley against the Soviet Union in the final. This goal helped the Netherlands to a 2-0 win and their first ever major international honour.

Can you play your part in van Basten scoring from this improbable angle?

Philipp Lahm vs. Turkey (2008)

This late Philipp Lahm strike against Turkey sealed Germany a place in the 2008 Euros final.

Are you good enough to combine with teammates and unlock the Turkey defence?

Fernando Torres vs. Germany (2008)

Spain became European champions for the second time after this trademark Fernando Torres goal proved enough to defeat Germany in the 2008 Euros final.

Do you have what it takes to remain calm in the pressure of a final?

England vs. Denmark (2020)

In the 2020 Euros semi-final, England levelled against Denmark after Simon Kjær turned a Bukayo Saka cross into his own net under pressure from Raheem Sterling.

Could you help England equalise against Denmark?

Luke Shaw vs. Italy (2020)

Luke Shaw scored this volley against Italy in the 2020 Euros final. This goal was the fullback’s first for England and the fastest-ever in a Euro final.

Would you be able to play a role in this fast attack?
