It was all too easy. Ukraines defending was dreadful for all four goals and they looked knackered. Fear we will get to the final and be embarassed by a Euro pedigree team. Germany side we played was the worst I can remember.

Anyway it's all about to be replayed on the BBC. Will watch again and try to be more positive. Right now I can't see us breaking Italys defense yet am confident we can beat Denmark.

I just said this to my friend - It would be interesting to see how England play against a 'Top team'.

I like the confidence it has instilled in England at the moment though.

What's more interesting is the mantra of not celebrating as the job's not done, this is potentially more positive in mamba mentality kind of way, you can only play who's in front of you and England were efficient last night. Sterling and Sancho can produce moments of magic, whether they have the mental strength to do it at home against a Danish side riding their own emotional wave remains to be seen.

played well but was dreadful to see them falling over an running the clock down last night, absolute piss take - hope they lose against ESP but if we get to the final we're in for a shocker either way!

What do you expect, its Italy and now with Italy v Spain they'll both be at it, they are both the masters at that kind of stuff

Honestly, this is just Laughing out loud

What I saw is fantastic first half, dominated by a team with no superstars, playing as a team, with an attacking style and possession based football, basically what everyone expected Belgium golden generation to show the whole Europe. A match virtually closed after 45' only stupidly reopened with a penalty, generously awarded. A good start of the second half, a pretty obvious tough last 20' where the team showed that we can still defend as good as in the past. And if wasting a bit of time here and there helps win a tough game against one of the best teams in the world, well why not? It's definitely not there that Belgium lost the game…

Quote everything. Viva l'Italia and Sick! to rosiconi.

I've got 2 spare tickets for the Denmark game, from Danish FA so they'll be in the Danish end but as far as I know you can move freely to get in the England end when there's low risk of fan trouble.

Not gonna lie, I'm duttying them, but if any of you big hitters were looking at touts anyway then hit me up for a better price.

If you buy these where are you likely to be put ? I once had away tickets to a derby play off final and ended up under the press box in amazing seats as the moves us from the away end. I’m interested though.

Moved em on to a good mate's mate for a grand in the end. I had 3 in total, gave 1 to a mate for nothing (who suggested trying my luck on the Danish side) and the guys who bought the other 2 are made up Cool

Super easy to transfer as well ^ just need an e-mail address and off they go downloadable into their app. Just hope it's all smooth on the night and the stewards are chill.

All seats were in block 137 Cat. 3.

Nice one Cool

A grands nothing really if England win. See England win in a major tournament at Wembley in a semi-final is once in a lifetime stuff.

Total waste of money if they lose mind Laughing out loud

I got a Fans First ticket for Italy V Spain on UEFA website this morning. £72 and it's put me lower tier behind the goal. Buzzing for it Ubercool

Yeah, £72 was a great price - I couldn't justify EUR 195.

Wembley was bouncing tonight. Loved every second of it. Italy look like the real deal this tournament.
