Milk? Did you say milk?!? C'mon man, you gotta be putting away some pints if you're a true soccer fan!

Yeah I can see it now, half the fans holding PB&J sammies and a glass of milk while the other half are holding pints of brew and chips.

^ Can always take their own sarnies and thermos of tea for half time.Was at a Palace game and there was a section for families which we were in and another for the vociferous fans which are known as the the hot dog and beer lot. Palace winning 1-0 we head straight out back to car after match while the hd & beer lot head for the pubs and off licences.

England's best chance is to perhaps get an early goal in against this determined Italian side.
Sterling the man possibly.
and as I speak they do it, holy cow!

Ya, that's gonna be talked about and analyzed these next few days. The irony is Southgate wanted to get them in for the PKs. So close, up 1-0 and also up in the PKs. Feel bad for Gareth.

Have you tried checking Google and typing Euro 2020, I love the firework on my screen? I had so much fun watching this season. Both Italy and England brought a good game for all the football enthusiasts around the world.

So the general onus is on the poor decision by Southgate bringing in substitute players to take the 3 failed PK's instead of the full time ones well spooled into the match, unbelievable for someone as experienced as Southgate and did other factors play into his decision..

Yes, Southgate should take a lot of the blame but I think the players needs to own up to this as well. After Shaw scored that ultra quick goal only 2 minutes in, England packed it in and played conservatively. Especially in the second half, Italy cranked it up a few notches and were by far the aggressors and attacked relentlessly. I think the general view is that Italy was the better team and that includes the entirely of the tournament.

BTW, Jorginho must be happy to have recently won the Champions League and now the Euro Cup although he choked on his PK. Was the hero against Spain and almost the goat against England.

Those replaced weren't going to be taking shots from the mark, were they?

I really hate shootouts. Not a good way to end a championship game.

I don't like them either, unless the team I'm supporting wins. Lol.

I can't remember which match it was in this tournament but it was the most exciting PK finish I'd ever seen. Maybe it was France v Switzerland? They went through the entire 11 players before it was decided. It was the first time I had seen a team's goalkeeper shoot against the opposing team's keeper and win it. Every single one of the players in the lineup for both sides knocked the ball into the back of the net. It was impressive.
