Great credit to England overall in this competition to get to the final, Southgate didn't get it right with formation and personnel in the final.

Never really satisfactory for football when a team wins a cup on penalties.

Italy unable to actually win semi or finals matches without penalties so slightly hollow Champions for me but they were the better side by a fair bit today.

{Ed007's Note - Didn't England get through their semi final with a dubious penalty - that Southgate himself called "soft"?

Winning a penalty, soft or not, in open play is different as opposed to relying an actual penalty shoot out Ed007 but hey whatever floats your boat fella.

{Ed007's Note - My boat's floating on a sea of English tears and the rest of the world pishing themselves laughing. Maybe penalties should be gender fluid, set their importance in the Brexit deal!

Trust baz to bring the bitterness 😂😂
66% possession to 34% almost twice as much,
19 shots to 6 with 6-2 on target, England had 1 shot the whole first half 😂😂 I think they must of had Spurs jerseys on under their England strip, bunch of bottle jobs 😂😂 England defence can hold their heads high they played very well but Harry and the midfield done nowt.
Southgate what can I say he’s embarrassed himself with the decisions he made tonight.

Ed 007 is there some Irish in you😂😂.

{Ed007's Note - Just the good bit :) That KP you all go on about is a player though. I've not seen much of him but he really impressed me

Irish whack lad I stated that Southgate got it well and truly wrong in this game and England were second best

; winning any game not least a Euro final by a penalty shoot out is the least satisfactory way of winning for the winners and for anyone to suggest otherwise would be disingenuous laddie.

Whacky - not sure why Grealish wasn’t one of the five penalty takers - should at least have been ahead of Saka.

Like the semi final ye won with an own goal and a peno for a dive, ye didn’t care how you won and your argument was that ye were the better side on that night which is probably true, same go’s for tonight Italy won’t care how they won once they won, call a spade a spade here, the Italians have being well known for cheating, diving, play acting etc. so winning a shootout is morally pretty decent for them they will be thrilled no matter what, most of these guys will win at any cost they don’t care if they look like cheats, results are all that matters.
Watched the copa America final, my word the diving and play acting was out of this world, neymar is the most overrated Brazilian I’ve ever seen, the old Brazilian greats must be sick in their stomachs watching him and most of the current team play, none of them fit to polish even ronaldinho’s boots let alone the great pele.
Clue I don’t understand it myself, even more so with sterling considering his goals in the tournament, jack hasn’t taken peno’s for us in quiet some time but you would think he had experience advantage over saka, thought it was odd taking hendo off I’d of backed him to smash 1 home, and at least give rashford and sancho 10 or 15 mins on the pitch before the shootout to get into the groove, they had like 1 touch each in the game it was very unfair on them, I think GS has done more harm than good to those 3 guys, would of backed KP to smash 1 in the roof of the net aswel by the way, he’s had a decent tournament, it was all very odd and GS should be sacked after it.

Think we saw one clear difference between KP and Rice. Tonight Rice made a surging run three times but didn’t have the composure to pick a pass (and there were players available on good positions each time) - just kept running until dispossessed, when he had players in space ahead of him each When KP has broken he’s been able to find a pass - the most obvious being in the first game when he slipped through Sterling for the goal.

As an aside, Henderson was piss poor when he came on.

Having beaten the Germans this time, we’ll just have to go one better next time round, by beating them at their place - they’re hosting in 2024.
