If England were that much better on the night then they wouldn't need to dive for penalties to win the game.

A wins a win but it was a terrible decision which decided the game.
Here you go, this shows it was a clear penalty:

The link is incorrect. This is Sterling's acting performance.

Re: Euro 2020

I think the fact that virtually every single football pundit from outside of England has said it was not a penalty says it all.

And the video is not convincing either. Sterling looks like a light breeze would take him off his feet. Pissweak.

M'lud, I refer you to the evidence in exhibits 303, 316, 318 and 321. I rest my case.

It wasn't a penalty. Kane's was.

Denmark's free kick wasn't a free kick either.

That particular incident probably wasn’t a penalty but it just made up for the other fouls that were ignored or wrongly penalised. Six of one, half a dozen of the other.

Whatever anybody thinks about that penalty you can’t ignore the fact that overall the English team played better on the night and deserved to go through.

Re: Euro 2020

I don't think England deserved to go through, they dived their way to the final. I used to think they were better than that, but obviously not.

Anyway, whats done is done, I'll now be cheering for Italy on Sunday.

Re: Euro 2020

A football match is not about who deserved or who didn't. Who ever scores, wins, even if they are the worst team in the world.

Sore loser. It wasn't even a proper dive either. There was a significant body check (not a foul but enough for a small bloke running at speed to go down).

Exactly...and that is another reason I far prefer rugby, won’t even go into discussions about respecting the opposition and the referee.

Curious to see all the comments regarding the penalty though ( it wasn’t one imho ) and yet not a word on the Italians play-acting and writhing on the floor in agony as if they had been hit by Courtney Lawes.

I fully expect Italy to win the football on Sunday and next year England will give Italy their annual kicking ( not literally) in the 6 Nations.
Honours even.

I think, for me anyway, it's because we all know the Italians are a bunch of prima donna's and we expect nothing less from them. England used to be better than that.

Thats Italy with the most impressive dive of the whole competition. https://talksport.com/football/90599...ium-euro-2020/

go on, just say it, YOU DONT WANT ENGLAND TO WIN. Its not the dives, its not the backpasses, its not even the laser pens or the anthem booing, you just don't want those English tosspots to win because they are english!

Nothing like a good bit of Brit Bashing up the morale hey ?

While your at it, start thinking about who you'll support in the upcoming world cup ? perhaps Brazil ? Nice ladies, great football, good chance of winning - I'd start supporting them at least say a few weeks before so you know a couple of the players when the tourney starts.

I'll carry on supporting england for the unusual reason that it was where i was born, which to me, means its the team you support.

This is fair. The anti-German stuff was tedious and embarrassing. At least for me as a Germanophile.

Contrast the politeness and decency of the Germans with yah boo attitude of the English fans.

Non sequitur.

Exactly the same pathetic accusation is levelled at the English rugby team and their supporters.

For me its just the diving really. Seems very un-English. (although I do generally enjoy a bit of Brit Bashing too )
