    Finally, just finally, we have managed to beat the Germans in a competitive match over the last 50 years.

    No drama, no penalty shoot-outs, but an honest-to-goodness victory.

    Was a little shaky to being with, but overall I think we deserved it and with that done, it should be a doddle to win the whole thing. :up:

    Commiserations to the Germans though, well played and it's an end of an era for them. They'll be back.

    But for now, onwards to the final, at Wembley. Please....

    It was a close run thing, I watched nervously through out the game because, you know, Germany.

    Both goals were well taken, and definitely relieved at the end.

    Looking forward to the next game indeed.

    It's coming home, it's coming home.

    Well at least as far as Wembley for the Semi Final against Denmark.

    Yeah, I know it's still got 10 mins left.

    You can relax now, at least until the next match.

    A sweet 4-0 victory for England.

    It's coming home, it's coming home...

    England are in the final of a major championship for the first time in 55 years.

    Football's coming home.

    It's the European Championships.
    Final on Sunday
    England vs Italy.

    Could make for a great weekend.

    I missed the first part of it, came in towards the end and watched extra time.

    We (and by that I mean England) seem to be playing pretty well, I just don't want to jinx it.

    Nice, I'm not into sports though, but it's nice to know that the playoffs were never cancelled despite the threat of Covid-19.
     
  9. It needs to be rejoicing and let everyone knows that your team has won against the Germans.

    Congratulations!

    By the way, what game is it for you haven't mentioned it?

    Sorry to disappoint, but this is Euro 2020, not the World Cup. So the best teams across Europe and not the world.

    Of course, some would say that all the best teams come from Europe anyway :whistle:

    Final tonight. I'm actually dreading it

    My heart says England, but my head says Italy, just because they always tend to be a little smarter in the game.

    Gotta love the Italians. If they don't get the cup, they will get the Oscar for best stuntwork.

    Why yes, I am sat here with popcorn and a grin on my face.

    Don't jinx it, don't jinx it.

    Great equaliser attempt by Italy. This one's a right nail-biter.
