Tbf we created our own chances against them and had 2 penalties turned away.Yes italy were the better team but fact is they have just convincingly beat a supposdly much better team.Be interesting to see how far the teams that have beaten england in recent history have actually gone

Have you lot lost your memories? England played one decent side this tournament and were thoroughly out played. Not sure where this new found optimism comes from.

We didn't go out because we were out played over 120 minutes, we went out because we fucked up the penalties (again).

The funny thing is that if we had won on penalties everyone would be going on about our strong organisation, brave defending, well thought out tactics and so on rather than us being outplayed. Just look at how people view Chelsea's performances in the Champions League.

Whilst improving things such as youth coaching will help, the real problem is that we aren't a tournament team. It might be the pressure of expectation, might be the media, might be confidence or whatever but we need to address it. You only have to look at the German team of recent years to see it, they haven't got the best players but they perform in tournaments.

England have to completely change their set up. They need to follow the French-Dutch-German models as it reaps the rewards  Roll Eyes Wink
Bollocks!!!!!!

If you have a world class player or two then you have a chance. Last time we did was Gazza and we went close.
Everything else,apart from trying to stifle is utter pie in the sky.

It's ok, we've just spent a few million on building some new fields and showers. We'll be winning world cups before you know it!

Hopefully they will build a section to learn how to score penalties.
Because until that happens England won't win anything.
