  1. It's not really a big achievement beating England tbh. They have 1 European trophy (Back in 66) Same like Greece (Euro cup 2004) So in conclusion Italy beating England is like Italy beating Greece. Both are not a successful footballing nation.
    Forza Azzurri per sempre though ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ†โšฝ๏ธ

  2. England fair play? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  3. Italy was sloppy at the start but grew into the game and in the second half controlled the game and got the deserved equalizer and tried to get the winner, as England just sat back, after taking the lead, and only in patches tried to win it in extra time. Italy held the nerve just to win the shootout, with the keeper the hero. England as in past Tournaments, can not beat the better sides, as they do not play to their Strengths in trying to win the game and sit back and lose their nerve on penalties.

  4. Well said. Italy was patient and strategical. Mancini's strategy was the best answer to the english Arrogance, Selfconfidence and to the 65.000 disrespecting supporters in Wembley

  5. Never underestimate Italy, Germany, and Brazil. These three countries have the most cups. Theyโ€™ve been to to finals more then any other country. They are super powers in soccer

  6. Italy has proven you can win with mediocre players. All you need is a fantastic tactical coach, and belief. If you have the support and you have belief, you can dominate.

  7. Are winning penalty shootouts really just a lottery? If so why do some teams nearly always win them i.e. Liverpool winning the Champions League and FA Cup both on pen shootouts in a year and Germany winning them alot. Isn't it also about nerve as well?

  8. you are not the home of nothing….a victory at home in 1966 it was clearly feared in the result…and you are notoriously presumptuous and little sporty…you should be ashamed as you have behaved to this European 2020 … in everything also for the welcome to the President of the Italian Repubblic….
