9 Sunderland and County Durham photos from 1996 - the year England and Scotland last met in the Euros
It’s the big day. England and Scotland come face to face today in the European Football Championships just as they did in 1996.
But what do you remember about life on Wearside 25 years ago? Was it the new Sunderland stadium taking shape, the Black Cats promotion push or perhaps a non-sporting event?
Was it the royal visit, your visit to a well known outdoor camp or possibly the show you put on at English Martyrs School?
We have all this and more in a great archive collection of Sunderland Echo photos. Take a look.
