Some great replies there and more on Twitter and then you have Piers Morgan with his take.

I can't stand that *****.  

****ing incredible he has the gall to attack a young player for "not being able to handle it" when he cries about ****ing everything from not being invited to a wedding to people calling out his ********. Guy's the ultimate snowflake.

Didn't he quit live on TV after someone pushed back on his ********? "not being able to handle it" indeed :D

tbf she looks quite a lot like him to start with

Probably spent her entire life being told she looks like that bloke that missed the penalty in Euro 96. This is her redemption arc too.

Congratulations on finally reaching a big final again! :thup:

Should be a great final against Italy.

Was screaming at Soutgate to bring on Grealish, Foden and Henderson from about the 60th minute. Brings on Grealish in normal time and he causes chaos, but waits until extra time to do anything else. It nearly gave me an aneurysm. But the final result is all that matters.

I think that may have been our best performance of the tournament. Into the final of a major tournament having only conceded a 30-yard screamer. It's nice.

No the Ukraine performance was better than tonight.

Thought Phillips was playing his way out of the side, but he had a very good extra time.

Think assuming everyone is fit, Saka's position is the only one in slight doubt, but I'd still expect him to start the final. Probably drop Mount a bit deeper to try and match up in midfield.

He had a great second half too. Part of the reason we dominated was because him and Rice started getting a grip that they didn't have in the first half.

They had 10 men tbf. 

Fair point but still… there was a 5 minute passage where they literally didn’t touch the ball. To play like that in ET of a semi-final was great.

I think the team today starts the final.

I thought that was really impressive from England tonight.  They showed a bit of everything to win that game.  I'm chuffed for Southgate, he deserves this as much as anyone else.

I love Rice and Phillips for what they've done this summer. But they are a middle tier midfield. Maybe a bit harsh but it does worry me for Sunday. 

I much more confident in our defence and front 3 against Italy. Midfield is a worry. Will need monster performances from them

I'm wary of tinkering too much but I think I'd start Hendo for Rice/Phillips in the final. He has that final and elite winning experience that those two don't have. Could be crucial.

Yes, the biggest weakness of the pitch.

if Bellingham was a bit older and Hendo a bit more match fit ….

Honestly I think Rice has become a bit underrated during this tournament. Phillips is more eye catching, but I think some of Rice's defensive work has been great.

I can see Rice getting 80 odd caps in a good England side, whereas Phillips will lose his place to Bellingham by Euro 2024

Kane was superb. That's the Kane I want. Popping up everywhere. Being available. Brilliant pass to Saka. Will gloss over the pen...

Sterling though. Jesus christ. Somebody drug test him. How can somebody that small be that strong. How can he be that rapid after 120 mins. Absolute hero. Absolute total legend. Think he's my favourite England play ever now. Move over Ashley Cole

People said Rice/Phillips would be done by Croatia's midfield and by Germany as well. Definitely had it rough during the first half tonight but they came through. I know Italy have a brilliant midfield but I wouldn't write them off if Southgate picks them again.

I agree. Phillips is the more replaceable part of that partnership. I'm not sure we have anyone who can do what Rice does.

They were outfought by Hojbjerg and Delaney until Denmark tired, it doesn't fill me with confidence. 

Rice does well at stopping the pass that never even gets made because he's in the right position, the pair of them were much better at cutting out passes in the second half but got moved around by clever movement in the first. For all that Denmark never had a great chance at any point.

Southgate has done a great job of protecting players and not letting their weakness be exploited. We also play so much down the wings, that the midfield isn't really an issue

I legally have to say Saka, but Sterling has been my favourite for years. Treated awfully by this country after Iceland

I think that's why Southgate subs him off. If he gets injured, we have no one to play that role

Rice fills in a lot down the left hand side, allowing Shaw to push on. We leave the midfield exposed on purpose at times, so we can overload the wings

Yeah, I don't know if my Foden bias is creeping in but I just haven't been overly impressed with Mount in the Euros. I don't see Southgate changing it though, he'll likely want a controlled game and Foden is a bit of chaos in midfield. Up front I think it's the same 3 again, wouldn't be against dropping Saka for Grealish/Foden but I'm also fine with him playing.

Foden is exceptional but I just don't think he fits in this current side.

It's what I love about Southgate, dropping Foden after the first two games was a huge move.

I think Mount has been good btw, does a **** load of running and pressing. I think he does a lot for the team that Southgate wants. I think his lack of attacking play is by design
