    Think England will have a hard time to score against Italy. The only team they actually played well offensively was against Ukraine. Other than that they haven't really been very impressive.
    Defensively tho England have been very good! Will be very interesting to see which team will manage to score. Sadly finals are usually rather boring games, but can hope for a nice game atleast.

    I think italy is highly overrated.

    Also this is coming from a Dane so take it with a grain of salt but. Thats my take
    If you think Italy is overrated you really need to wake up to reality =D

    We weren't good defensively, we made a lot of mistakes gifting the ball away on the 18 yard line. And any keeper who isn't 5' 2" Pickford would have saved that free kick.

    Yea it’s weird to see, especially if you played back when growing up. 50/50 jump balls where always a shit show. I walked off the field one game to find a full cleat mark on my chest of the jersey, don’t recall when it happened that game but then again things got messy when defending crosses. Good times really, I do miss it especially when watching these tourneys.

    In fairness, the referees said they were clamping down on high elbows, and have given a *lot* of cards out for it.

    I dont actually. Its a take. Literally nothing happens if i'm wrong so i dont "need" to do anything.

    I'm just not very impressed by Italy. This is basicly the first time in the cup that England has been in trouble, not exactly the same can be said for Italy

    I agree with people saying about the bad penalty decision, the guy obvious took Kanes leg..... Oh wait not that one?


    Seriously if that pen was against my team (or a team I hated some some weird reason) Id be a salty git too. It was soft for sure and a shame that was what ultimately decided the match. Just see too many of those given, in the PL but the officials seemed to be a lot less whistle happy in earlier rounds, but the hysteria must come from people that don't watch football.

    What a feeling though! cant wait for Sunday, gonna have to keep hold of the ball a bit better or we'll be overrun.

    Every year I keep losing more and more interest in football because of blatantly corrupt shit like this.

    I've stopped watching the Greek national league because of corruption within the Greek ref association,

    Then I stopped watching Champions league when my team, PAOK, got 3 (THREE) unjust penalties against them when playing Ajax.

    Now this. This is the last Euro for me.

    You had an easy route to the final though. Except for an extremely poorly performing Germany all the matchups were against 2nd rated nations, no insult meant.

    Italy at least kicked out Spain and Belgium who were both high performers in this tournament.

    Spain were poor, they had the easiest route of anyone, and scraped by one game on penalties.

    Italy look vulnerable without Spinnazzola.

    the person you quoted stated that he was danish, as in he is from denmark, so what the fuck does germany have to do with what he said?

    Well you have only conceded a single goal in 6 games and that was a freekick. No matter how you look at it, that is very impressive.

    erm Spain won 1 game in 90 minutes, 2 in total. They played Poland Sweden Slovakia, Croatia, Switzerland, Id say that was a much easier draw than England...btw they played all their group games at home, as did Italy and Denmark, kinda one dimensional thinking.

    I'm not from England. I'd just much rather they win then Italy. And i'm much more impressed by them then Italy.

    There is no reason to start arguing all sorts of things with me about that.

    Well haven't watched a full game in years but I did this one. Whether you agree with the penalty call or not. England did have more possession of the ball and had more attempts and didn't run out of energy like Denmark. Grats guys.

    Best play of the game was def Mikkels shot. I thought that was going to set the tone for the rest of the game right there.

    It wasn't a pen, but the right team won the match, the Danish went far too defensive in the 2nd half, England played the better football and got lucky, anything after that I don't care!


    See you Sunday

    Replace you with they then. Can't read or memorize where everyone is from eh

    it was a good game, no easy games in a semi and denmark just faded.

    looking forward to the final, hoping southgates style may be more suited to playing italy than denmark
