Loving all things football

Great read Amer.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but you’d like to think if Southgate had a do-over of the final he would’ve a) got Grealish involved earlier so he has time to actually impact, and b) get Rashford and Sancho on for fresh legs much earlier in extra time, so their first touch of the football isn’t from the penalty spot. I can only presume that Declan Rice must’ve been knackered as well, hence the substitution, because you’re bang on in saying it was probably his best performance in an England shirt. While it’s obviously a crushing defeat, Mancini and the Italian squad deserve all the praise, as no doubt the better team won on the night.

Southgate's decisions cost England, Mancini's brilliance brought Euro 2020 to Italy

Appreciate that mate cheers.

Football didn't come home, but it's come closer

The crux of this article is literally pointing out positives from a disappointing result. Where exactly have I “kicked them”?

Some good points there. Since writing this I’ve re-evaluated my stance on Dier so I agree with you there, there’s definitely some better options around. Cheers for the feedback

How England should line up in the Euros

Completely agree with the quality of West Ham’s performances, and don’t get me wrong it would be great to see them finish top 5. They’re certainly capable if they keep the ball rolling. My prediction factors in some difficult upcoming fixtures, coupled with the compactness of the points between the 4th-8th positions on the table.

Manchester City have the title wrapped up, but who clinches European positions?
