In hindsight, and taking away the in game stress of watching it, that was domination. Could should have been more for England. Denmark could have knicked it, but England could have walked away 4-1

Trick or Treat or........
You deserved the victory and the final, but the penalty on Sterling ... demonstration that when there is a dive, the nationality discourse skips ...


Fuck it... Kane should have got one in 90mins..... We were stitched up by having to play extra time.

....Count yourselves lucky that we won't be as fresh.

It is a dive, for sure we'd all be saying it had it been given the other way. British players have adapted their game for years so as not to be continuously disadvantaged when playing their European counterparts.

I don't see what the whining on the continent is about though. They've been doing this for decades and we've been on the receiving end of gamesmanship for years.

Suffering is part of the game. Look at us with poor Spinazzola: MVP for two games and the other day he was in Finland to have surgery ...

end of an era
I think the general consensus outside the English media is that the cheating last night brought the game into disrepute but was nowhere as damaging as fan behaviour.

The footballing world would prefer that Sunday takes place without English supporters present. Football is a basic affair, but their people lack the sophistication for it.

Exactly, what I meant: there has been a globalization of bad habits. A few days ago, a female referee said that in women's football, players stand taller than their male counterparts.
