That means nothing having watched a wide open Sterling literally hit it directly Schmeichel from 3 yards out. You could say the same thing about Italy-Spain if they had awarded that PK to Spain in ET for Chiellini's handball.

I get it though, betting clouds your view. I would say the same thing you just said if I bet on England to win in ET :)

But with the new rule that can’t be a Pk if the ball hits your body first :)

You make it sound as if rules matter :)

If it was Albania playing Spain they’d give it but when two big teams are playing an important match like that they stick to the rules 😁 That’s why i have hopes the final will have no simulated pks given to either team. The ref is Dutch, he previously managed the 2014 encounter between England and Italy while there will be a German ref at VAR.

Yeah I’m with you there. If anything the Pk call against Denrmak will ensure there are no shenanigans in the final.

Although this seems like the year a dark horse wins it like Denmark. That be pretty cool too.
Looks like I was right about the final atleast. Going back to my previous pick I think England will scrap by a 1-0 victory, a 62nd minute header by Maguire. It seems like it’s finally England’s turn although I hope they lose.

Their fans are absolute cunts. Their team historically prided itself in playing "gentleman football" and the English will tell you a lot of romantic tales about their toughness while holding their noses up at the "cheating football" played by Southern Europeans and Latin Americans. Meanwhile Sterling and Kane have been two of the biggest divers this whole tournament and Sterling's dive to get a bullshit pk against the Danish will go down the biggest act of cheating this Euro.

I think Italy is the better team overall except up top, but England has a massive home advantage.
