So it isn't coming home after all.  A bit tough to lose in a penalty shoot-out, but that's how it goes, although why Southgate elected to bring on two players just for this goodness knows, particularly as they both missed with Rashford's stupid stuttering technique causing the ball to hit the post.

Well done Italy, they managed very well with the constant booing when they had the ball and during their national anthem  clap clap clap

I agree Chris.  The behaviour of the fans was utterly disgraceful.

Have neither of you watched a football match before? lol

Italy played a dirty match and edged it on penalties, but there's lots to celebrate for this young English side. clapping

It has been hard to dislike this England side and manager. Felt bad for them last night.

Yes, including the 1966 World Cup final.

Chris and I weren't talking about the players in general, but the England fans.  Also perhaps if Southgate had selected more experienced players, particularly when it came down to penalties, England might actually have won despite Italy's dirty tricks - not that the England team were whiter than white either.

The only ones I felt bad for were the three who either missed or fluffed their penalty kicks - and it doesn't help that they're now the victims of racial abuse.  Also why did Southgate pick Rashford and Sancho who'd been sitting on the bench throughout the match and so had had no feel of the ball, then expected them to come on 'cold' and kick a penalty with any degree of success in such a vital match?

Yea. They all seem like thoroughly nice chaps, and gel well as a team. Quite a contrast to the Beckham era, which was the last time the male England team threatened to win stuff.
