Google and Euro 2008

Google shows a special OneBox with the latest results from Euro 2008, the European Football Championship. The OneBox is displayed only if you use the localized Google sites from the participating countries. You can search for [euro 2008] to see the next two matches or [euro 2008 country_name] for the most recent scores.


There's also a page titled 23 days that links to a map of the stadiums and an iGoogle gadget with live results, standings and news.


And if the increasingly frequent Google doodles still mean something to you, the Euro 2008 doodle marked the first day of the championship.

  5. 555 is a safe fictitious prefix number often used in movies so it's safe to use as test data :)
