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.
Well in the final they were quite physical rather than prima donna's. The only one that had me screaming dive was their wing forward who was seemingly genuinely hurt!

For me its just the diving really. Seems very un-English.
Like taking the knee ?? I wanted to support England but couldn't after that. Not that I have any particular love for the basket case that is Italy.

Re: Euro 2020

I didn't watch the entire match, but judging by how much of it I watched I think Italy did a great job, the public was wild and the pressure enormous..
Well, in all honesty I already lost my hope they're gonna win even before the break, but they pleasantly surprised me. Yes, "It's going to Rome!". I enjoyed their joy..

Re: Euro 2020

I thought England ending up doing alright. They didn't win but have a promising squad for the future.

Yeah, I've got no love for politics in football. And after reading the Guardian obsessing about the 'diversity' of the team since I'm quite happy they lost.

Re: Euro 2020

My summary:

Good tournament and a deserving champion.

I don't care about rainbow colours or mini-VW cars. This is football. Nothing else.

Tournaments in one country are better. Unless this country is Qatar.

You don't strike me as a Guardian reader.

Italy may have won the football but hooliganism is coming home.

One gentleman wedged a lit flare up his bottom after drinking 25 cans of cider then had a big pile of coke before storming Wembley without a ticket.
