Bet it was great to be there. Italy have looked good but I thought Spain thoroughly outplayed them last night and winner of tonight's game will deffo fancy their chances.

Agreed, Spains lack of good forwards lost them the game. They were superb in midfield and should of had the game won in 90.

Apart from Chiesa don't rate the Italy forward line that much. Immobile is a bit pointless as is Belotti. Insigne is a one trick pony always looks to cut in and Azpilicueta showed him down the flank all last night and rendered him a bit useless.

If we make it through (which I am confident we will) our forwards are way more dangerous and Italy should be worried as Kane, Sterling, Sancho, Grealish etc are different to what Spain put out.

Italy getting bummed all tournament and they have been good to watch but as I suspected all along a good team can show them up.

What's the point in VAR. Terrible decision.

As long as we don’t have to watch another England game on ITV for a fair bit. Lee Dixon is the night nurse of commentators.

Laughing out loud

All over them second half. Kept getting into their box as we had the ball so much. Something was eventually going to go in our favour and the Kane one before wasn't given. Danes defended brilliantly so will feel hard done by but the right team went through.

Are you Danish?

I'm neutral - England dominated in all honesty but if it wasn't for that pen, Denmark may have held you to pens.

I also think that the whole pressure of the event at Wembley would've caused England to collapse during the shootouts; we had a snapshot with Kane's pen.

Kane should've been given a pen though I think in the 2nd half BUT, the Sterling pen was extremely harsh to decide a Semi-Final match as it wasn't a stonewall penalty. If that penalty was given to Denmark, the world wouldn't have heard the end of it.

Schmeical flopped as well 9/10 times he would push that to the side.

Bit of a sweaty way to get in the finals. We were the better team but can’t believe VAR found that a pen

Nah he's Italian.
The England squad does know that a Danish player nearly died playing in the tournament right? Or is the team on a media blackout?

I don’t mind Dixon, that other guy matterface is bad, worse still was the woman (emma Hayes?) with Gary Neville.

We’re the final, I hope we win. Kane, Maguire, Foden… it’s not going to be a pretty picture. Pickford seems a liability.
