    in what fucking world was Spain poor? Spain was one of the best teams of the tournament, if not the best, just extremely unlucky.. and in what world did they have the easiest route? England had the easiest route and played at home in every game but one.. easy route, playing at home and now given a bs pen.. lmfao

    Spain lost to themselves if anything, because they couldnt finish

    first off, can i get a link to the fantasyland version of the match you watched, because you're entire viewpoint is fucked, and secondly, italy have played almost all their games so far in italy, denmark prior to tonight have played most of their games in denmark, so how in the fuck does england playing on hom turf count as 'heavily rigged', would love some of the shit you have been smoking because i don't know how else you could come to such a moronic conclusion, and as for the referee, he had a piss poor game and should be investigated for potential match fixing, he denied a clear penalty against kane earlier in the match, he showed 1 yellow card to a danish player when they conceded several bookable fouls the entire game, and gave harry maguire a yellow card for challenging a fair ball in the air, if you're just trolling for bait then consider me a bite but honestly if you're being serious, you need to get your head out your arse cos you been sniffing something for too long and you can no longer see straight.

    Spain could only win 1 game, in normal time they played all their group games at home, and would have been more if they had won their group but they couldnt get by Sweden Slovakia and Poland despite playing them all at home, followed by Croatia and Switzerland? How can you say that draw was worse than Englands? Holy cow

    Draw with Sweden, draw with Poland, flexed on Slovakia (lol) nearly choked vs Croatia, had to beat the Swiss on penalties then couldn't beat a weakened Italy.

    Spain were poor this tournament, people talk about England's route to the final, Spain collapsed against the first real challenge they faced.

    England were the better team. Denmark ran out of steam around 60 minutes into the game. After that it was just a war of attrition. England won.

    So I fell asleep at 85 minutes thinking that England may actually deserve to go to the final and then woke up to find out that they won with a penalty like this... Another semi-final bought in England, just like in 1966 (if you don't know what I am talking about go read about it online first).

    So did any of you football experts notice the Danish goal should have been disallowed?

    They also didn't notice the backpass that should have resulted in an indirect free-kick to England or the 21 fouls that Denmark made compared to 10 for the same amount of yellow cards (1), or that Christensen went down like a sack of shit to win the free kick.

    Well England deserved it, they were the better team, but I got furious at the penalty decision. I guess VAR can't work when the English are involved, hehe. Danemark was perhaps a little bit underwhelming, atleast in the sense that they run so out of gas that England could easily dictate the game.

    Another thing that annoyed me a lot was how easily Kane fell over and got freekicks. The man is not small, but all the game he fell over from the slightest of touches. Quality player but that annoyed me. Quite amazing how Saka is having such a great tournament, when all the talk was about Sancho, Grealish (who is also having a solid one) and Foden.

    But congrats England, for once you could get it made and that mentality is what you always need to have even if you got all the best players. But in the final the best team of the tournament imo waits so the real test comes now. Danemark was sometimes able to get through the midfield quite easily and the Italians will do it even better. Hoping for a great game.

    Pickford doesn't give me the sense of a secure keeper and atleast not with his feet. And he always seems so pissed at everything!

    So now it's halfway home. It will be the birthplace of football or calcio storica.

    In other news: Louis van Gaal is going to be the new manager of the Netherlands, can you believe it?

    wow, for once we are not the bad guys in the final

    Italy look vulnerable without Spinnazzola.

    I still don't understand how it can be so difficult for non-Italian speakers to write SPINAZZOLA correctly

    I wouldn't take such offence, people can write out my email address and still spell my name wrong in the email.

    Well gotta say that the English fans didn't really make any new friends last night. The laser in Schmeichel's eyes during the penalty and then the booing during the national anthem, these things are unacceptable. I know that these kind of things happen in all fan groups, but it doesn't make it any better.

    It's actually quite sad, since the English team is full of exciting and nice players.

    I am no fan of Italy in football but play wise they have arguably been playing the most entertaining football in this tournament, except for their annyoing timewasting and falling to the ground, but England is challenging them in the latter department. I wouldn't mind the English players winning the trophy, and the country in itself would enjoy it so much that it would be quite nice to see.

    But I have a feeling that the English media and the bad part of the fans would make it quite unbearable. And regarding the bad part of the fans: I know there are these kind of fans in every fan group, but I would argue that this group is bigger than in some other countries or atleast more easily noticed. This might very well be due to the football culture in England, which is plagued by some ugly hooliganism. This has been evident at club level for ages. But I fucking love "It's coming home", to me it's more of a tournament song that just makes me excited for the whole tournament in itself.

    Watching Kane's legs fall out under him like wet noodles when someone touched his arm was painful. He did it like 6 or 7 times and failed only once in drawing a free kick from thin air. Likewise, Sterling for the last 30 minutes did nothing except run into the box only to fall down trying to get a free penalty. Finally with the help of the home crowd yelling it got to the ref and he was fooled. England is no better than Italy in this aspect. Northern and UK based players used to have more integrity but the game has changed. Everyone is flopping and diving like an idiot now.

    Seems a fairly common sentiment here, love the players, hate the fans… even worse with all the brexit bullshitters attaching themselves to it. It’s like, two matches ago you were fucking booing them you racist shit.

    Urgh.
