    I was worried that we would struggle to score enough goals to win the tournament, but that was a very solid, dare I say it almost German machine like win.
    Kane hitting form when we need him, our player changes looking sweet, Grealish and Fodon as options, this has to be our best chance ever to win a championship.
    Very well done to the boys.

    The options on the bench are ridiculous. Who'd have thought such players wouldn't be getting a look in.

    Gareth has his doubters yet two semi finals in two majors so far on his record....

    Italy in the final on penalties. They were not the best team tonight but have the resilience to win the match.

    Yeah, they were thoroughly outplayed by Spain. I never would've guessed it. Maybe they missed Spinazzola more than anyone would've thought. I'm glad they won though. I still think a Spain final would've been a bit boring.

    Could be an Argentina v Brazil final too.

    If England manage to beat Denmark (and I think they should, though it is far from a foregone conclusion), I reckon Italy is a better matchup for them than Spain would have been ……

    Italy have been brilliantly exciting, but they have lots of injuries now and their attacking play leaves vulnerabilities at the back - whereas Spain’s possession play would have really frustrated England, pushed them back and made them wholly dependant on frantic counterattack on the few times they actually had the ball.

    Italy v Spain was an excellent match of the highest order. Spain have not played better in this tournament than they did against Italy. Dani Olmo was man of the match but blazed the penalty over but Spain had the better chances to have won the game.

    After many years of disappointment - 82 my first - I still can't see us as winners next Sunday. But that's my inbuilt defence mechanism.

    That's not to say I'm looking ahead beyond Denmark, I'm not. Am just highlighting the general way I'm feeling.

    I'm nervous now and it will get worse as 8pm approaches.

    So to Denmark. On paper we're better and if we played them ten times you'd fancy us to win at least 5 with a couple of draws and 3 for them. But this is knockout football. Can't see us not scoring and you'd fancy us to get 2 but will that be enough....Please not penalties.

    We do have the team, a vast array of options on the bench, pace, the momentum and I hope the belief in the lads too - on a level we never saw with the golden ego generation.

    In short I'm bricking it

    We have done it, first time I have seen England in a final in my lifetime. Sterling has been outstanding the whole tournament but that was not a penalty. The better team won though.

    Yep 50 50 penalty and was surprised it was given Didn't think there's was a free kick either when they scored.

    Schmeichel had a great game which says a lot and we did deserve it.

    I didn't really celebrate at the end. Was that drained and covered in sweat. To not be in the final and not have to endure it would be a fucking relief in many ways!!!

    Can we beat Italy? Not sure. There's not much in it. Play them ten times I'd expect 3 wins for them, 2 for us and 5 draws. One glorious moment from one player brings or takes it away from home.

    Congratulations to England for making the Final.

    Interesting matchup from a Saddo standpoint, as longtime member Primo will be pitted against most of the Brits on here who will obviously be rooting for the home country.

    Should be a riveting matchup.

    Eric's nowhere to be found after predicting an early tournament exit for Italy.

    I have to congratulate Italy, they have managed to muddle their way through a tournament again

    There seems to be uproar about the winning penalty decision for England, i cant see why, maybe it was harsh but their free kick for their goal was never a foul and there was a clear English penalty not given towards the end of normal time

    and Denmark had their moments but we more than deserved to go through

    Yep, we tend to “Muddle our way “ through tournaments in the same way England muddle their way through groups.
    You’re playing a final in your own backyard, so to lose would be abject failure to be honest after you’ve had to beat Footballing giants Denmark and Ukraine.
    But we shall see.

    You can only beat the teams put in front of you.
