They won't outdive the italians. Thats what usually decides these things.

The last 15 minutes of their quarter final against Belgium was an absolute masterpiece of shithousery.

Been an excellent tournament bit gutted it finishes on Sunday. 

 

I tipped Italy before it started and nothing I have seen so far has changed my mind, a 2 or 3 0 win for Italy on Sunday is my prediction.

Italy look no better than England.

if you want to see some of the funniest reactions to that match go on r/soccer subreddit, its almost too easy to wind them up.

Its like no team or player has ever dived at a tournament they way they are going on. 

If you want proper shithousing wait til Neymar and Co take on Argentina in their final. But hey 'its part of the game' over there apparently.

I think what sticks in my throat is for years we have had the English pundits lamenting foreigners for diving yet as soon as it benefits their team they are ok with it. England deserved to win the other night but the manner of it leaves a bit of a sour taste and I would be saying the same if Denmark had won the game in the same way.

The "English" have hardly endeared themselves to their fellow Europeans over the years whether that be due to football hooliganism or more recently Brexit.  I know England are not the only country who have hooligans and racist views but the events of the last few years have really rammed it all down the throats of Europeans.

Add in "It's coming home" which is not interpreted well by others as they do not necessarily understand that "Three Lions" isn't really about claiming Football for England but is more of a lament, and the dreams and hopes of the nation that the team may actually win something... anything...  The "it's coming home" tied in with Euro '96 being hosted in England.  To the supporters of other nations it now comes across as being arrogant. 

At least both Italians and English fans can use the tune for either "it's coming home" or "it's coming to Rome"...

In all seriousness I was just giving an explanation of why so many people turn against the English supporters...  These might cheer you up though :)

Whole internet is full of boobies if that's what you're after.

So England lost on penalties. Instant karma after England fans booed the Italian national anthem. 

Ah well, world cup next year and this young team shows promise. Maybe by then England fans will have learned to show some respect for the opposition and support their team with honour.  

(I won't hold my breath.)
