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!

Refusing to receive a silver medal, that other players would have been proud of ... is a snob spoiled brat thing to do .. Thats my opinion and none of you can change it 😉

I think it's quite a common thing to be fair mate. I've seen it a lot, not just at international level. In the immediate aftermath of a game, especially one you were winning, it's hard to feel anything other than "This is a medal to say we were 2nd best", which on the night only reminds you you're a loser.

Regarding  penalties GS is a chump. First thing, they should have taken pens like the 1st 5 Euro 96, if you can't hit the side net you're not taking one,. GS hasn't got the bottle to tell players to take penalties  properly, or not bother. Fuming..

I don't think so SD. I didn't see the exact thing you're mentioning as I turned it off soon after the penalties. But if Denmark had made it through to the final and Damsgaard had done what you're saying for example, I'd just think yeah, sad boy is sad, just lost a European final for his nation.

I think it's going to be in retrospect that Kalvin Phillips reviews that medal and sees it as a positive. He has to otherwise he may as well not play for England again. It's just on-the-night disappointment.

I tend to agree with you SmogDane, but to me it would be reminder of the painful way that it happened. It's hard to judge someone who's been through such extremes only minutes ago.

I think the Danish players would have been VERY proud to be in that final ... And I honestly don't believe they would kinda refuse to get that medal ..

I presume he still took it though, I'd have to see the moment in question to know for sure but I'm willing to bet one way or another he still has that medal and after today, he will find a time in which to be proud of it.

He could well be lying, but he's said they practiced penalties constantly since he took over.

Like it or not, it's still luck of the draw.

There's clearly skill involved, but most penalties look *** if the keeper dives the right way.

I don't buy the luck thing. 

Taking a penalty is a skill and more than anything a test of nerve. 

Hit the ball hard in the corner and no keeper will save it.

We must have some bloody terrible penalty takers if we need to make 2 subs late on just for the sake of penalties. If we're practicing them all the time, you'd think those who take the pitch more often would be better at them. Him taking Henderson and Walker off, to put blood Rashford in at right-back so late on especially... ugh.
