    Being rude is cool, unless it's used against you I guess.

    It’s a shame to see this tournament come down to this.

    The loss on penalties was 100% on Rashford. Open goal and the pressure on the ones that came after...Saka's just a kid!

    That's not how a collective sport works.

    Nah, sorry, no excuse for a player of Rashfords calibre missing a penalty in that way.

    However, on balance, the best team won. Let's not take the glory away from Italy.

    Here's the whole problem.

    England perception of it's own player.

    Sorry, but we can't blame Rashford. Penalties are a lottery. We had 120 mins, 67 of which we were leading to avoid penalties.

    I'm heartbroken, disappointed but very, very proud.

    You believe that showboating was justified in an international final?

    In fact they're not.

    Chelsea winning the UCL in 2012 was the work of Goalkeeper trainers Christophe Lollichon and Petr Cech vista regarding the penalty shot in overtime.

    So was the same UCL 2008 regarding Van der Sar dive, which was not respected by Anelka.

    England's subs blew it. Pickford did well in goal. Rashford's miss was terrible. Sancho's was predictable. And Saka... He's just a kid. But he put the ball the same place as Sancho did.

    If you think that it's showboating, then you don't really understand how a penalty work.

    Kinda like the miss by jorginho who's not à great penalty taker if the Goalkeeper don't jump before with his little jump due to his lack of power.

    He was trying to get info from Donnaruma on which side he planned to jump to take his decision.

    Because foot orientation, body language means a lot in a penalty shootout.
