Done us proud. 

 

Desperately disappointing finale. 

 

I hope for your sake this is the main thing most take away after this. Obviously very dissapointing, but England has had a fantastic tournament and you should be proud.

Fuck all this Southgate blaming, and player blaming, as gutting as this defeat it, these players and management team have done us so proud over the last month. We drew the game, and pens are a fucking crap shoot. There's so much hope and positivity going forward from this tournament. Up the fucking England.

 

Not with Southgate as manager. It will be under performing again, negative, defensive, dull.

Been a good game for the neutrals. I feel for the young lads who missed the pens at the end there. Think the Hendersons, Walkers etc. should have raken responsibility there…

 

At least Sancho and Saka picked their spots and hit the ball fairly well if not the best, and forced a save from Donnaruma.

 

Rashford over complicating things by waiting so long to try and bait Donnaruma and then send it into the other corner ... well I just didn't like it at all. Terrible miss.

I missed the first 15 minutes in which you apparently dominated and stunned them, but the 105 minutes I did see in fairness Italy were the better side. Also loved them in other games. Versus Belgium they were fantastic. Think they’re deserved winners of the tournament all things considered…

Don't understand why the more experienced players didn't take one - Henderson, Sterling - it was too much pressure on young shoulders.

To be fair Henderson got taken off, so couldn't take one.

Says more about the mentality of the senior players who hide behind the kids when it's really time to be counted. Yee yee ass cunts.

 

I wonder if Southgate chose, or he asked for players to volunteer.

 

Pretty sure I saw Grealish volunteer to go sixth if it came to it during the pre-penalty huddle.

I'd really wanted England to lose but did not enjoy that the way it happened at all. Those lads missing, especially Rashford. Does Rashford even have a good pen record? Feel like I've seen him miss a few - looked like he was overthinking as soon as he stepped up. And Southgate's obviously done well, but putting such a young kid on the 5th pen?

odd Shaw didn't take one, surely he should have been confident enough to take one having scored and all 

 

I was saying to my missus before I thought he'd be in the first five. But I couldn't remember who had been subbed off at that point. I thought Sterling was subbed off because he wasn't in the five.

Yeah because he's only gotten us to a World Cup semi final and Euros final in back to back tournaments. What utter guff.

first 30 minutes or so it looked a no contest tbh England were getting behind Italy consistently and the Italians could do nothing going forward. Half time changed that and Southgate didn't really respond
