Although Pickford save two, the difference in compoaure between the 2 keepers were stark in contrast. Donaruma was very calm from the moment he started walking for the pens.

 

Pickford was excellent. That guy is gutsy.

Rashford and Sancho clearly not sent on to take pens, not sure why people are saying they shouldn't have been allowed to take them? 


I think they’re saying that it was weird to send on players to take a penalty who have barely been used and hadn’t touched the ball.

We were terrific for 28 mins, can anyone point to where it went wrong?

 

We didn't adapt to the changes Italy made and didn't know what to do on the lead.

He's a bit of a prat but big respect to Pickford man. Needed more of the players to have his mindset and guts in that penalty shootout. Very strong mentally that kid.

Was thinking when he saved Jorginho's pen that he's impossible to psych out because he's so thick :lol:

I will point at Rashford, he's usually fairly decent on pens for man u and then he pulls that shite out for this? And missed! Saka and Sanchos were saved, fair enough shit happens but he missed and there is no excuse for missing 

 

The stuttering run ups never seem to work. Donnarumma saw right through him.

He's definitely someone who gets a harsh rap on here (Mackem and all) but he definitely steps up for England every time.

half time, Italy came out a different team second half and Southgate was slow to respond

So why were they sent on after 119 mins?

Just football. I don't think England did nothing wrong/much different from what they've been doing before. Defensive football puts you closer to lose than win. Wins like the Portuguese in 2016 or Greece in 2004 take an insane amount of luck to happen.

Can you imagine having him go up next in that situation man :lol:

 

Can they not change the order in that situation? Man, so unfortunate.

 

England really should have won this in the first half before Italy had a chance to adjust to their starting tactic, but they sat on that one goal lead, and just weren't brave enough when Italy looked shaky.

 

This is spot on. We didn't deserve to win tonight which softens the blow slightly. Still devo'ed though. 

 

Was a typical England performance in a big game, unfortunately. Dominated early then gave into fear and fucked it.

mind bringing on two players with only 3 minutes left and totally cold to take penalties is absolutely stupid 

It's absolutely rdiculous. If it's Pirlo and Shearer, yeah fair enough. But Rashford and Sancho. Totally braindead. We suffered Henderson's shite performance but I would have backed him to score a pen.

He hit the post and sent the keeper the wrong way. He was inches from the perfect penalty.

 

I guess the first rule is to hit the target but Saka and Sancho penalties were worse for me

Southgate just got outcoached, really. Mancini changed it and we didn't even react. Can't sit on a one nil against fucking Italy.

 

We were desperate for changes at HT and they just didn't happen.

Not final game related, but what a great tournament it has been. Europe needed that after a miserable year and a half of pandemic

 

Yeah think it might be favourite international tournament since France '98.

 

Final was tense, but a bit pap too - unworthy of what came before it.

Southgate has done well overall but he is overly negative considering the squad you have and had no response to Mancini’s changes. 
 

Harsh but he’s just another PFM hoping for a bit of magic that can talk well outside WW2.

 

Really like Southgate a lot. Just a top guy, but ... he had t win it to justify the approach he has gone with throughout.

 

Mainly because I don't believe any of these teams could have lived with an attack featuring more of the likes of Grealish, Sancho, Foden, Bellingham etc.

 

It sucks man. He's done well, but it still feels like he didn't get it right on the whole. So much ability on the bench for this team man. Crazy.

Rashford? Donnarumma went in completely the wrong direction. I actually thought Rashford had nailed it, he ended up giving himself most of the goal to aim at. Then he fucked it.
