Shame the victory has been marred by the laser pen and booing. It was a very soft penalty but since Michael Owen showed the way, going down easy has sadly been a feature.

As for Lee Dixon, can anyone remember a single insight he gave? At one point he said that Southgate's subs would be a "trickle". Moments later two came on at the same time! Easy money really, so fair play to him.

As for the tournament, England have all the advantage now, so I reckon they'll win it.

It was scandalous that ITV used Matterface last night, for me the best on ITV is Clive Tyldsley
Matterface replaced Tyldesley as ITV's main commentator. He did not go quietly!

Just let’s all be thankful we do to put up with Andy Townsend anymore. I think ITV or BBC should give Jerry from Big Jet TV a shot at the co-commentator role.

With the final tomorrow, I cast my mind back to 66 and where I was when we won the world cup. I was on holiday with my parents on a camp site near Chivenor and watched the final at a TV shop in Bude. Do any of our older members remember where they were in 66.

It's a way of saying that when England come up against a decent team, in a major tournament, they can't get the job done.

Rubbish. They have played decent teams in this tournament and beat them. They lost narrowly tonight on a penalty shoot out to a couple of great saves. England have a lot to be proud of in this tournament by reaching the final. The only slightly dodgy decision is letting newly brought on subs take penalties. Not sure that was good idea.

It's been a great tournament, lots of good football, great goals and it's a bit sad it's over. Still not long until the World Cup. :grinning:

Big sad for England. To be fair, Italy deserved it, but were I an England fan, I’d be mightily proud of the team - great bunch of lads, talented, genuinely nice people, excellent role models, and they play pretty fab football.

They had the easy side of the draw, and when it came to a final against a well organised and skillful team, they failed again.

After watching England for decades, it's always been the same. There's been varying degrees of success, but ultimately it always ends in failure.

They reached the final of a major tournament and narrowly lost. If you don't find some pride in that achievement then fair enough. Some of us would love our team to achieve even a small fraction of England's success.

England team and manager deserve much praise. Absolutely gutted for the penalty missers. Some never stood up. McGuire is my Eng player of the tournament- he’d make the Scotland team! (And a few others).

The fans have not been so good. Bursting into Wembley, then fighting inside, and leaving before the presentation. Not classy.

I thought France were the best team early on but Italy were superior in every department in the final and deserved the trophy.

"Absolutely gutted for the penalty missers" - Wonder why sterling and Grealish did not step up before the lads that never kicked the ball until the Peno's. England should have had this one but sat back in the 2nd half while Italy grew in confidence.. Shame really but that footie.

Cheers

You don't "step up" in penalty shootouts any more, the manager provides the order to the officials. Southgate said this himself last night

Hasn't it always been that way? Stepping up means putting your name forward to the manager to add to the list doesn't it?
