This man, his children, grand children and great grand children will most likely all die of old age before England win a major trophy again.Raheem_Sterling_2018.thumb.jpg.e00bd8ac247e77581e91440de6fae9bf.jpg

That Scotsman was right, "You'll win nothing with kids"!

Let's hope it doesn't blight their careers - maybe one of them will be England manager in 25 years time and they'll need asked about this endlessly.

It may be too early for this, but Southgate was found wanting there, in his line-up, his substitutions, and his choice of penalty takers.  Putting on Sancho and Rashford solely to take penalties in the penalty shoot out was inexcusable.  Where was big bollocks 'I'm taking the penalty' Henderson?  Ah, subbed on and subbed off.

Have to agree with that. Rashford had hardly any game time this tournament then he's asked to take a penalty in the final ..

Spot on. Sancho and Rashford should have been on as soon as extra time started.

A reasonable result. Either team would have cause to complain if they'd lost - Italy because they dominated possession, England because they had as many decent chances.

At least the game didn't turn on a refereeing decision - there were dubious free-kicks given both ways throughout.
