I'd have Italy as dark horses:

Immobile

Insigne---------------------------------------Chiesa

Barella-------Locatelli

Verratti

Spinazzola--------Chiellini-------Bonucci------Florenzi

Donnarumma

 

Although they might need to play 3 at the back to counter the Juve CB's ageing legs.

 

Guessed 9 of their most regular XI pre-tournament.

Deserved winners. They had a tough run of knockout games and got it done.

Completely deserved. They Swiss were amazing and probably should have won it in normal time.  Nightmare of a tournament for Mbappe. Would probably haunt a player that age if he hadn’t alread

Rashford proving what a useless big nosed cunt bag that he is. Cost us numerous times and now cost the country. Fuck off back to your slum and feed some kids with the snot from that fucking huge

I just realised Southgate is definitely getting the United job in a few years.

Italy deserved it, great tournament. We should have kept the ball longer when we were in front. The penalty specialists were awful. Rashford had been in decline for months. 

England need second goal to kill the game. But coward in game management by Southgate as by ole in May cost England like United in the end big time.

I feel sorry for those three lads because you just know they'll cop racist abuse by the cartload.

Goes without saying, unfortunately

It's a young team that will only getting better. But will need a better coach to ultimately unlock this gifted generation of 18-25 year old technicians. Grealish, Foden and Sancho being this marginalised was criminal.

All our best players are vying for 2 wide positions. Elsewhere i don't see many world class players. Where are the central midfielders who can dominate a game like veratti? When will we produce centre backs of the calibre of chiellini and bonucci? Why can't we produce imposing keepers like buffon, donumadura? Still a lot of work to be done before england can expect win a tournament.

Maguire has been as good as any defender all tournament. Price tag aside, he's now one of the best CBs around.

Shaw has been sensational in 2021. He's playing like a world class player. A bonus. He has only come into the equation this year. Chilwell had that locked down at one point.

You don't have a Verratti, but not many other international teams do either. The problem with Southgate is that he feels inferior to elite nations. He doesn't promote a possession based system in these games. He is a good man manager like Ole, but both fall down when it really matters.

If Pep was managing this group of players, they'd be playing a much better brand overall.

GK is the biggest issue. The talent & depth is there for every other position. Although there is room for improvement at CB. Tomori could help there.

One of the big reasons why most other countries couldnt fathom even remotely supporting England. Even if the whole squad was United players from 1 to 11. Type of cunts make me delighted when they lose. Angrily typing one letter at a time on his phone with his index finger ready to blast every player on social media, when 5 minutes prior he was ready to act like he's loved them all along.

Piss off you fat, ugly, uneducated, inbred loser. Rashford has achieved more in his life than you ever will.

^^Absoluteky thrilled England we’re beaten because of POS like the above.  🇮🇹

Shaw aside I think you're being generous. The centre backs are protected by two holding midfielders. Without that they'd have been more exposed. 

There are many teams with centre mids that can do a defensive shift but also be effective in attack or directing the play. Holland (de jong, wijnaldum), spain (busquets), germany (kroos gundogan goretzka), france (kante) etc

How do you defend that Rashford penalty or his performance for us last season?

 

Why send 3 players on cold from the bench? 

Clearly grealish and others had no bollocks.

Watch that rashford pen again. It is probably the worst pen ever from the most over rated pos ever to grace a football field.

We must have terrible penalty takers if we need to send saka up. Rashford is normally a reliable taker but the others were hit at saveable height. To score a penalty against a good keeper you either need to send them the wrong way or hit it with enough power or placement to be out of their reach. England practiced penalties but they must have had de gea in goal to believe those types of penalties would win them a shootout.

oh what a great feeling specially when i was watching the game with some of the friends and one of them was drunk and cheering for England and kept annoying me with "Chellini is asshole, Spain deserved it, Italians are dirty" but in the end i had the last laugh in his face! 

Southgate's choice for Penalty was really stupid. it should have been Kane, Shaw, Stones, Maguire and Grealish. though i haven't seen Stones and Grealish take Penalties i think the mentality of those players where higher than Rashford and Sancho when they knew they were only playing to kick the ball from the spot. why Saka was brought on when there was Sancho? Grealish should have been introduced after Italy's goal not in 99th minute. he really is England's Ole. not going to win anything just like they haven't won anything in the last 55 years.

HAIL ARGENTINA 

i just realize Sako has never taken a penalty as a pro footballer! THANK YOU SOUTHGATE YOU FUCKING MORON 🤣

Hindsight is 20/20. Grealish has said that he put his hand up but Southgate made the picks. I'm surprised Shaw didn't take one. Scored in the EL final.
