This is the golden generation!

Interesting, you like at the defence you think bang average, you see the attack you think cracking  yet its our defence which has given us the platform to get here. 

 

Golden generation maybe, first time I have seen a England team where the whole team can control a football and do the basics correctly most definitely

Sterling shades maybe as we won, Schmeichel was amazing though. Thought Walker not far behind either, had a great game.

I thought Phillips followed by sterling. Yorkshire pirlo had a cracking game

Funny how opinions differ, I thought struggled tonight, played higher than he’s used to and let runners go. Anyway, it’s irrelevant as we won. 😉

With the risk of being hated by some of you I will tell you my honest opinion as a England fan but neutral in the same time ( cause if Romania would be a good team for sure i will support then any day at Euros)

I wanted England to win since the tournament started but England never impressed me in any game. Is not because of the quality of the players but because of the coaches.

In the group stage England looked like some of Italy clone and I expected that to change but it didn't happen to be honest.

Yesterday I felt nice about the game and a bit sad for Spain, which was so unlucky. 

Today I was hoping for a nice game, instead the first half was terrible for me as a neutral fan (which wanted England to win). Second half the team tried a bit more but against a team like Denmark England should score but they couldn't. In the stoppage time that was not a penalty and Denmark played in 10 for 15 mins while England was wasting time.

The conclusion:

A pretty poor game judging the quality difference between players and their fitness. Premier League players get the best fitness probably in the entire world while some of the obscure Denmark players for sure dont. 

So, a 2-1 win from a questionable penalty and wasting time for 15 minutes against a drained team which played in 10 man. Everything happened with England playing at Home with 40k supporters.

Judging by the quality of football and the beauty of this game, the Final Italy vs England is for sure the ugliest one at this Tournament.

I hope for an England win but for sure will be a boring game.

Once it went to extra time, only one winner for me. England bossed that, deserved to win, Denmark had nothing left. Still extra subs if we needed it.

We'll need to raise our game a level against Chiellini, Bonucci and co, but got to enjoy this evening, These nights don't come around that often. Well done England.

We haven’t got to a final for 55 years until tonight. Probably not the time for that analysis?

There was one angle where you could see true contact.  On the soft side, but as I always say, bet it would’ve been given if outside the box.

Thought we generally played well.  Denmark are no mugs, bound to be some nerves.  Our subs can be starters, their subs were second string.  We got the goal, better side by far.

I don’t think we had to dig as deep in ET as Italy did we Spain, so hopefully extra day won’t make too much difference.

Conclusive proof. Marxism works. Non-Marxist England lose semi finals. Marxist England win semi finals. Never underestimate the power of the collective.

A win on Sunday will be a win for socialists across the world! Solidarity, comrades!

There’s two things I’ve always stood by in football.

Anything can happen in a derby. Anything can happen in a final. 
 

Thjs could really go either way. But either way what an absolutely pleasure it is to watch this England team play, managed by an absolute gent.

I feel you ! And England deserve a Trophy but I wanted to write my opinion somewhere. I really don't like what this Southgate does, England have probably one of their best roster and they play uglier than 10-20 years before.

Spot on Dave. The Danes were totally drained at the end, but we still had energy. Southgate's subs were well timed too.
