To hold onto subs specifically for the penalty shootout was a decision that he was always going to live or die by tonight, Saka was shaky from his first touch tonight to let him take one of the 5 penalties was appalling management.

I know I said it at half time, but this is the Croatia game all over again.  The only difference is that Italy settled for penalties as soon as extra time came around whilst Croatia kept going and put us out of our misery.

Heading away with the good lady wife so won’t be back on before the final. Sincerest best wishes to the ordinary English fans on here. Hope it happens for you 💪

I think for me it's partly about the connection to the area too. I don't hold much connection to the entirety of England but I love coming from Middlesbrough, I've lived and worked in a few places aro

Congrats, friends ...  🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 V 🇩🇰 @ Wembley  ...   Good luck to y'all!

I'm not sure why you were surprised? We've been quite negative all tournament in our setups, just up until now weve had a massive quality advantage.

Gutted we've lost. I fricken hate walk ups for penalties 

Not often I agree with you but that highlighted bit is absolutely spot on

I think it's one of those things - if they score every time, they're a genius. As soon as they miss one it's the worst decision.

Absolutely heartbroken.

Far from outclassed, but penalties are the cruelest way to lose a match.

We were outclassed, italy were far better with the ball, far more composed and from the 2nd half onwards looked like the only winners. At 1-1 we were playing like a pulis team scrapping for a point. Panicked hoof balls to nobody, poor touches all over the pitch and constantly gifting the ball away.

We have ourselves to blame. Trying to out-italy the Italians at 1-0 up. For all they did right they got that spectacularly wrong

Yes they were awful tactics and Southgate waited far to long to make the subs, when we were under the cosh in the 2nd half, I was screaming blue murder before Italy scored, for fucksake Southgate get some subs on and nothing. Not once did we use our pace to try and run at 2 CB's who were both on yellow cards.

For me it’s a case of make your mind up, stick to it and run up and deliver it

Southgate *** up. His substitutions were shocking.

Rice was doing well and he brings on Henderson.

Saka comes on and has a mare, then is taking the 5th penalty. Kid is 19.

Brings on Rashford and Sancho to specifically take penalties and they both miss.

This is all after the fact he decided to just sit deep and defend after our early goal.

He royally cooked it up today.

I thought Henderson was running on a treadmill he was that slow in everything he did, Rice was having a god game Mount hardly touched the ball 2nd half and closed nothing down.
