For me its the 98 World Cup in France. Think thats maybe because i look back on it very favourably as it was just about the first tournament i remember watching from start to finish as i was bout 9 at the time. As you and many like us would remember at that age my life was about footy. Watching and playing it.
That tournament for me was brilliant. Seemed like there was so many great footballers on show and loads of great attacking football to watch. Only really problem with it was Ireland didn't make it. Still remember that great Holland vs Argentina match with that exceptional goal from Bergkamp. The Brazilian team was a joy to watch. With Ronaldo breaking on the scene. Then of course that, imo, near to perfect France team with Zizou leading them on. I was actually in France on holiday with my parents at the time of the final. When France won remember the whole small town we were in running out on the street celebrating shouting "VIVE LA FRANCE!" with gun shots going off in the air. Was pretty crazy but good fun.
So got any International tournament you remember fondly?
