He stopped it at a later point for two balls and the ball wasn't interfering with play

I’m only quoting what the actual laws of the game say . I can’t answer for the refs decision making

Don’t think many would argue that overall the two best teams are in final.

 

Only watched the home nations. Not seen any other games, but has the tournament been that bad?

England have been pretty turgid to watch.

If Italy win I believe they will have won every single game (17 in total I think)including qualifiers . That would be an achievement 

Tbh, Italys midfield is miles better.

England have some firepower though and i think they’ll win it.

Thousands of people in Scotland pretending to be fucking furious that England did it when in reality they couldn’t really give a fuck. It’s more a case of I’m more Scottish than you cause I hate England.

Im fucking delighted for England and that was superb scenes at the end. Hope they do it 

I’m not against England winning. I’ve lived down here long enough to know the petty hatred for England by some scots isn’t really reciprocated.

Spain were meh until semi’s and tbh they were fantastic last night.

France, Germany and Portugal - poor.

Belgium looked spent.

Italy have had to beat both Belgium and Spain to get there. I think both those teams are better than England so have Italy as favourites but not certs given England’s home advantage.

I think that is what annoys me. I've spent most of my adult life working out of England.

Nobody in England really gives a fuck about Scotland as a football team, infact - dare I say - most probably are happy if we do well.

It is unrequited hatred up here. That said...... do I want to see them win.....

Rice and Phillips are good players but the midfields last night were on completely different levels to Englands.

Be an interesting game.

The petty bitterness by some is pathetic. Ranting and raving about the commentary and spouting their anti English pish - all they have to do is switch it off - it’s like our fans watching Sportscene and moaning about it - dont fucking watch it it’s pish anyway

Glad England won....but i must admit to mixed emotions.

If they win it we are never going to hear the end of it...so I'm torn,

It's a bit like seeing your mother-in-law drive your brand new car over a cliff

 

😂

28 ish years down here for me and unless we are in direct opposition it’s normally just as you say.

Last nights semi was the best I’ve seen technically.

Spain were on a different level.

They are great defensively but I’m not sure England have the creativity to break down the Italians. The last 2 games have shown they can tough it out.

So to summarize - the biggest under-achievers in world football squeezed past a country with a tenth of the population thanks to an OG and a blatant piece of cheating to join the great pantheon of European finalists like Greece and Denmark. Bet Italy can't believe their luck.
