Unfortunately, Gazza didn’t notify Merlin that he planned to score one of the most memorable goals a player has ever scored in an England shirt – otherwise he and Merlin would almost certainly have tried to setup some sort of ‘premonitory’ mocked-up photo shoot, so the image could have been used on the front cover. As it was, Merlin settled on a rather busy looking title set on a backdrop of England fans in a stadium.
The opening page of Merlin’s UEFA Euro 96 Official Sticker Album contains the introduction and shiny stickers of the championship logo and mascot. England open the album and the first double-spread show the badge shiny, a crowd sticker, manager Terry Venables, and a David Platt two-part shiny sticker. Also appearing here are the scores from previous meetings between the group A members, and a list of England’s past performances in the championships. There are 3 pages of squad football stickers, meaning 22 England players to collect and stick in. Alongside each sticker is a list of stats such as international performances and club background. The sixth England page examines England’s history, with a look back at past managers, interesting trivia, and a leader board of top international goal scorers. There is a two-part sticker on the page of the 1966 World Cup Final.
Other teams throughout the album have a similar arrangement of stickers and details, some get a little cut down with fewer player stickers. At the end of each group section comes a page dedicated to each stadium at which the teams will be playing their group matches, photos, bios and stats are included with a sticker of each stadium. The centre of the album contains a results tracker and a two-part Euro 96 Trophy sticker. Several pages look back through history at past championships, with stickers for the winner at each of the finals.

- The Merlin Euro 96 football sticker album was issued with both portrait and action figures. The action figures set was withdrawn due to a dispute over the photographs!
