it's disappointing right now Spain didn't win or won't feature in another Final game tournament, it's the nation I root for in these scenarios, but think if they had got through today they wouldn't have won the competition, fallen at the end game stage etc. Italy should prove a tougher test for the English when they face off on Sundays main event. It's tough right now, disappointed with it, but you got to think of the greater good. Still be pleased enough when the goddamn thing is done with and over.
You’re just willing us to fall on our face. Pretty sure none of us taking anything for granted.

Us English know all about disappointment. In the last World Cup, I thought a semi-final against Croatia was winnable compared to a tie against Brazil or France or Italy or one of those truly big football nations, but we got truly shown up.

It’s a funny old game, Saint.

Even when we have a good team, I don’t consider us one of the big gun football nations. Same with Belgium. Even when they are ranked first and have great players, I’m not sure they truly mentally believe they can win it.

Think there will be more pressure on England tomorrow night than the final should they get there.
People are expecting them to win against Denmark where if they play Italy they could be classified as the underdogs.
I think you’re right. I think this game could be a nervy one.

I think Denmark will fancy their chances. I’m not sure we’re that solid at the back and we’ve had luck with Pickford saves/missed chances. And I can see us getting frustrated against a resolute defence. Getting an early goal would settle nerves, but can’t see Denmark allowing an early goal like Ukraine.

well well - thought Spain were by far the better team and they really should have wrapped things up earlier, but missed 2 easy chances.

Just goes to prove what a lottery penalties can be - I never ever liked the golden goal when it was in operation but now I'm not so sure, maybe an unlimited period of extra time until a goal is scored would be a better alternative to penalties.

Just goes to prove that England can take nothing for granted against the Danes - being the better team is clearly no guarantee of going through.

But - if we DO make it, I think we will overrun Italy in the final.

For someone who at the start of this competition said they had “no Godamm interest in it” you seem to be doing the exact opposite. Maybe I’ve missed the obvious but exactly what nationality are you SJ and why do you so resent the success of our National football team ? Maybe it’s just jealousy, or is it something completely different, I’d really like to understand why you think the way you do.

The only time I really like seeing this flag is in a restaurant. Love the food but never really taken to the people but that’s one better than France where I dislike both.

This said I’ve had some wonderful times in both Countries but Italy is definitely more special and has it all with Mountains, Lakes and a spectacular coastline and some wonderful Cities too, not least Rome and Florence. Just love the Amalfi Region especially between Positano and Amalfi which takes in your wife’s favourite spot Marko, your lady definitely has great taste. I’ve still never been to the Italian Lakes but it’s high up on the list of places still to visit.

Despite rooting for Spain last night I’ll be more than happy with an Italy v England final which I think would be an interesting contest, but this is far from a foregone conclusion.

Like all of us I’m really looking forward to tonight’s game and think we should have enough in the locker to go through although Kasper Schmeichel may have different ideas, just hope he doesn’t play a blinder.

f*ck the Danes! It’s not my problem you had a player have a heart attack. Change your diet. f*ck destiny, England for the win and a classic final England v Italy!
Defintely the strangest post on the thread. Even stranger than a SJ post…… got to assume you were f**king reekin when you posted it.

Didnt really give destiny a thought in all of this, but now that you mention it, i reckon it definitely WILL play a huge part and they'll hammer your Engerland tonight. Wasn’t “really” that bothered if i’m honest, but after that post, ….. go on then, GO DANES.

I believe SJ in a US national, so I would assume jealousy to be the most likely reason :wink:

Yes, Conca was our first port of call on a three destination honeymoon, Charnwood. Obviously it was really Amalfi as that is the main area with Conca being very small, blink and you miss it. My Mrs liked the idea that our hotel had its own personal three beach restaurants. Was really good.

All those years of following England around the world has finally come to fruition.
I have to admit after watching us lose in Moscow I thought the chance of me ever seeing us play in a final had gone. Whatever happens on Sunday at least that is now going to happen. :D :D

Yeah, why not. I’ll say it too. Well done guys. 👍 But more directed at Shed on Tour. You’ve spent the dough, done the travelling, you’re not the club supporter who turns up for semi final or final tickets……. Very well done, hope they do indeed bring it home for you. And keep breathing, like the doctor wouldve said if youd asked the question! 👍👍

Was actually expecting something even more outrageous from you tonight, 9 …….. all sauced up after the win?! :lol:
