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!

Mention of the player of the tournament earlier. I think the young Spanish lad Pedri had a sensational tournament for such a young man. He should be in the running IMO

I love how Gareth talks actual tactics in his pre match interviews rather than just the usual meaningless soundbites.

Getting nervous now.

Its reassuring (slightly) to know he's got a gameplan to deal with Italy.

Whether it works or not is another matter. 

 

Nerves kick again when you realise how far back Italy's unbeaten run goes. England have to be the first team to beat them in ages...

F**k, so have I! On my second bottle and only just realised when you posted that I'd done the same. Apologies all...

im 95per cent happy with the formation and players selected . was gonna post the 11 i would of liked earlier and it was pretty much as it is . having watched all italys games in this tournament i felt it was frugal to go 3 at the back with wing backs so that would be walker, stones and maguire , with shaw left side and either trippier r james right.  if im honestid have gone with trippier over james based on thier displays thus far in this tournament , nothing else seperates them.  the 3 centre backs pick themselves  due again to thier last outings,though i feel a bit for mings especially who played very well in maguires absense  also its abit tough on coady and white not to have had a taste of action throughout.  infact id say ,suprisingly pickford and stones have been the most consistant al in all up to now. i dont think the two defensive midfielder system of phillips and rice have been as excellent in the last few games after a brilliant first game. italy base thier whole game around the two outstaning centre backs with thier know how and no nonsense attitude then ,more vital to them, the worker ants or the 3 central midfielders veratti, barela and  jorginho, this is where the game could be won or lost and id have matched them with 3 in there , my choices would have been,mount,rice and bellingham, again bit harsh to drop phillips but he has struggled lately and been forced out of position by fairly good midfielders from germany,  denmark and acctually scotland too. so id have gone 3-5-2 or 5-3-2,whichever way you interpret it with sterling and kane up top.  the other area i was worried about with italy is how they ghoted in behind you out wide but that evaporated massively when spinnazola was injured  but chiesa still gets free left side.
