>>114149581>unless you're Italy on a good day you will not hold a lead defending for 70 minutes
expecting to contain a great team for 70 minutes is crazy. maybe with 30 minutes left to play sure but jeez.
i was resigned to defeat when chiellini started roaming as a playmaker in the second half>>114150652>the two hardly played all fucking euros sancho shouldn't be taking a pen while only playing one fucking game, the subs was shit, letting saka take the final pen was shit he is a shit manager
i don't understand football at a high level really so i can understand the idea of taking statistically the best penalty takers from training and stuff but there's also a level to it where you want the players to step up for it rather than level to it
grealish said he wanted to take one and if i have a player wanting to take one, i'd pick him over a kid any day. not to mention dcl was also there who has scored pens for england before.
it's unfortunate because harry kane is only the out and out penalty taker from that squad who takes them consistently at club level and consistently buries them. i really just wish he took jwp to the finals.
for me it's kane/maguire/grealish/jwp/dcl
