  1. I am English and watched the game last night. i am sad England lost but hey it was a great game to watch. Well done Italy many congratulations.

    1. @ghetto booty lover its not fault info . They needed the cheat called steriling to get the “penalty ” in the semis .
      It really makes a lot of us laugh when they talked about football coming home even before the final . The english media n public underestimated italy .. 4 times world champion n played brlliantly against world no 1 belgium n spain in semis .. n they have manchini who knows the english football.
      England only played for the first 30 min well n than park the bus for almost 90 min( total 120min ) infront of home crowd .

    2. @AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL Italy never experimented with something like white suprematism, which was an emblem of American and British history. Your history is the history of racism

  3. As a non-English man, this is what is called the sweet, sweet smell of defeat. Well done, Italy!

    1. @Walter King Does it look to you that it doesn’t matter ? You have the wisdom of a Trump cultist.

    1. The biggest problem I have with Kane is that every time he loses the ball to the opposition, he dives in some way. I just dislike the times he dives at, especially when he is so close to the penalty box.

    3. I’m not a fan of footer but have wondered whether they might add marks for technical merit and difficulty on such occasions?

  4. The last penalty was a failure to the young man but don’t blame him, the others didn’t want to do it because of this. The more experienced were Cowards.

    1. Bit harsh and ignores performance of Italy to that point. Italy dominated play overall. England didn’t and let it go to the lottery of penalties. Hard luck to the England team/ fans, but credit to the team for getting to the finals and putting up with all the trolling from some corners of so called footballing fans. Congratulation Italy. Lets not blame…experienced players nor junior nor manager. Its just a game after all.

  5. UK headlines “England team hailed as heroes”, USA headlines “Crushing blow for England”

    2. @wig cap which game did you watch? 1 shot on target 1 goal for England with 38% ball possession. Italy 6 shots on target 1 goal and 62% ball possession.

  6. Wolfsburg Germamy has a huge Italien Community. It was so cool to see their Joy, much like ours as we won the World Championship in 2014. Good Job Italy

    1. @m3gakurv4 I remember some players saying how Italy got easy opponents and then loosing to the same opponents that Italy had already beaten. Does Switzerland reminds you something? Vous avez perdu ma cheri!

    2. @m3gakurv4 pasta, gnocchi, pizza, mortadella, salame, risotto, ‘nduja, arancini… well, yes we are the best country for food in the world no cap

  7. England after they lost: “It was our black player’s fault!”
    England if they had won: “It was all thanks to Brexit!”

    1. @playthegame …Awwwww…still upset that you are not in the EU??..Suck it up buttercup,there’s diddly shirt you can do about it!!..

    2. @vivek chaudhary Couldn’t agree more. The whole shower are up to their necks in it…old boy

    1. @Gaming Clips That’s exactly your problem mate. You don’t get the concept of sharing joy or sadness with others, above nationality, above divisions. Your Irish neighbours who can pull everyone into being happy with them, are a good example, but they are not the only ones, with various intensity this exists everywhere. But when England wins you want to celebrate alone, you make it all about the ego, all about being superior, and when you lose the inflated ego hurts so much you can’t take it with dignity

  8. ITALY TOOK IT ROME! I’d say this is just karma for all the bad stuff England did. VIVA L’ITALIA!

    2. @Don nawzd WHAT???? KEEP that BS outta here!! I see you’re a product of the Chicago school system WTF does your mayor leadfoot have to do with this ?????

  9. What is undoubtedly the worst fanbase in the world will be coming home crying tonight.

    1. @TheDiamond2009 No, its most of you. Been to enough games to know football turns usually normal people into vile creatures. Football supporters are a stain on England’s name and its about time they were banned from every game, home and abroad. Oh and the fact England lost, makes no difference to anything that happened, the fans would still have been drunk, violent and abusive if they won.

    2. Dave, when you say it’s most of you, who are you referring to specifically, the English or football fans? The reason I ask is that you say “most of you”, implying somehow that I might be part of it. I don’t go to football games, I only watch the odd big game on the telly, and I’m more of a cricket and rugby fan.

      But I still don’t believe that the majority of football fans are like that. The vast majority are peaceful folk, and it’s a minority who engage in drunken hooliganism. Admittedly you’ll encounter some ripe and fruity language at football grounds, but I don’t believe that you could suggest that most of them are violent thugs.

      But football is a game that attracts them, I’m afraid.

    3. @TheDiamond2009 I meant football fans. I suggest before you assume anything, you should go to a few games and you’ll see what I mean, because you clearly don’t have a clue.

    2. Can’t wait when as results of brexit they will lose all they have….still running on EU fuel…but not for long british fuls

  10. I didn’t care too much about this event but since I became aware of England’s fans’ egregious cruelty and bad behavior, I rooted for England to lose. Glad they did.

  11. The English fans disgust me. They didn’t deserve the win. Italy won for all of Europe
