Euro 2020 (in 2021)


Recommended Posts

Got to love England fans, writing us off already but banged on about beating Germany. These types of people kill my enjoyment of the game, it really does take a toll. Other people might deem it 'normal' but I absolutely hate it. Just sit back, enjoy the game! Win or lose, we've had a decent tournament.

It's like Graeme Souness, saying he had always said England would win the tournament after the Germany game.

No, he didn't. He said we were lucky and Germany never got going.

England's fans don't believe in a honest way that they're capable of winning, that's fine.

Being delusional and a bandwagon jumper is just pathetic.

Those same fans who are now moaning about losing to Ukraine before we've even kicked a ball, will be the first to go mental if victory is achieved and any negative prior comments will be deleted. These people aren't fans, they're shameless publicity wa**kers.

Obviously awesome that we beat Germany, and the coverage afterwards was a special treat for me. I've been to jollier funerals! I asked my neighbour what the score was afterwards (just to make sure obviously), but he seemed to have forgotten. 

Crossing my fingers for Denmark and England to progress so we definitely have a Notts reject in the final. Looking good for Denmark so far. The German commentator has told us that if Kasper improves the command of his area, he could play for a club like Manchester City one day and win trophies. He really knows his stuff then.

The Czechs have looked more comfortable on the ball and have produced a few dangerous moments, but have been slack at the back and the Danes have punished them for it.

Denmark deserved their win today. They will be tough opponents for England. It will be England. Ukraine looked like a beaten team before kick off. England get the early goal. Only sloppy play will get Ukraine back into this. Average side.

Would be really interested to hear Ian Burchnall views about the tactics seen at the Euros and how they can be applied to Notts. 

It's a pity we lost out on Miller, as one could see Ruben timing the short pass to the left wing back for the ball to be put across for Wootton to stab/ head  home.

Also the importance of quality dead ball delivery into the box, alongside the choreography of movement to leave a player with a free header

With the semi-final and final both at Wembley we're never going to get a better chance of winning it. The noise from the crowd against Germany sounded decent from just hearing it on the TV, the home supporters will be a massive advantage again.

I'd have loved the chance to attend, I'm sure it's probably already sold out but £170 to sit in the gods for the semi's and then £250 for the final is a complete rip-off. How can that be justifiable for a game of football?

I think Denmark will shock England. They have the game to expose the English defence. Ukraine didn't have the quality to finish the chances they created, Denmark do. I think they'll get behind the full backs. Maguire panics when facing his own goal. Of course England have the game to beat Denmark but my gut says Denmark.

Whilst, I wouldn't want to write-off Denmark who looked certain to be knocked out of the group stages in which they played quite poorly. I still feel England have what it takes to make the final, defensively the Three Lions have been superb - with Jordan Pickford being one of the standout keepers throughout the tournament so far. I think it's safe to say, he'll win the 'Golden Glove' award and for good reason.

Denmark has some neat midfielders, but they're far from perfect.

I mean, England wasn't exciting anyone themselves in the group stages, but they always did look well-organised. On the day, the better team will win - be that Denmark or England.

What I will say, is there's clear signs that the England camp and squad are growing with confidence - they're not getting ahead of themselves. Gareth Southgate will have them firmly placed on the ground, but I can see is England controlling midfield. It will be down to whoever creates, takes their chances and defends bravely.

Statistical wise, both teams are quite similar with their offensive play. Crosses completed by Denmark is 28%, England is 30%.

One positive note for England, is if they make the most of their set pieces this could break Denmark's defence down. England have scored 5 headers, to Denmark single goal.

Passing rate for Denmark is 82% to England's 88%.

Denmark also tend to give more fouls away, so playing Jack Grealish and Phil Foden could benefit play.

I think the game will be quite open at first, but I think once settled England will show their class. I have to say, I have been impressed by the defending from England, Scotland and Germany had good chances but I never felt like they would score. Go back to the Golden Generation, I always worried that a mistake would happen.

Italy got the job done. Spain probably deserved to win the game but the Italians are so resilient. Jorginho was so cool under pressure. Just rolled the winning penalty in. Italy will need every single minute of recovery time. That was as tough a 120 minutes as you will ever see. Over to you England and Denmark.

The Shaw foul was never a free kick, majority of Denmark players did exactly the same thing to our defenders - even the pundits said it was harsh. Great free kick, but they're going down easily.

Parked the bus until they got back into it, never deserved a goal.

Things being level is about right, yet England has pushed more. When in control, Denmark sit back and put bodies deep.

I feel sorry for Pickford, he yelled out commands and nobody listened.

Yet he's getting criticism? Madness.

England deserve to win but that was a very soft penalty. World class dive by Sterling. Was going down before he might have been brushed. Brilliant save by Schmeichel. Italy won't be losing any sleep.

I don't think Sterling dived, he got clipped and you've got to go down to get a foul. If we comb through the game, Denmark could show some silly dives.

Kasper should've caught the penalty or pushed it away to safe ground.

70th minute Denmark became tired and too defensive.

Good game of football.

Referee's a bit naff, inconsistent with fouls and bookings.

If that penalty was against England, English fans and quite rightly so, would have lost the plot. Sterling was going down before the challenge was made. That's a dive in my book. It's a pity the game is going to be decided by this.

VAR checked it, the ref made the right call. Denmark has done okay, but it's risky stuff fouling any player in the penalty box.

The foul on Henderson looked a penalty to me.

Oh well, England win. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿💪🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Italy will like to be the underdogs, they work as s team but this is England's best chance of winning a tournament since 1966.

Amazing tournament, hope those England who said we wouldn't do well - enjoy this! Bet they're the most vocal.
