My commiserations to the England supporting forum members. I supported Italy (I can't possibly support a team that has Kane, Maguire, Grealish and Henderson in it), but during the first half I really thought England had Italy figured out and knew how to stifle them. In the second half however England were practically inviting Italy to score, and I was actually surprised that regular time ended at 1-1. England's play went back in time: just give the ball a mean kick and see what happens.
The choice of penalty kickers was baffling. Why not pick players who had had more gametime. Rashford was terribly unlucky, it took a lot of balls to take the penalty like that. If he had scored he would have been hailed the ice cold hero Jorginho was for the Italy-Spain shoot-out. And Saka and Sancho... WTF! They were barely warmed up, hardly had a look at the ball and then have to take a penalty with the weight of the nation on them. I can only feel dreadfully sorry for them. Very odd too that Sterling didn't take a penalty, but if this was because he didn't feel confident, you can only respect that.
Happy for Jorginho and Emerson, sad for Mount, James and Chilwell.
