the home of cult football
The first mascot to make an appearance at the European Championships was a large-nosed young fellow called Pinoccio, back in the 1980 tournament over in Italy.

Enormous-footed rooster in a French football kit. With a ball.
Tough looking rabbit with dodgy euro-rock headband and even dodgier ball control.

A Portuguese kid. With enormous, fat hands. But only 3 fingers.
Fun-loving Austro-Swiss chums with jester-style haircuts. But no ball.
