Kuipers was really impressive. Handled the final perfectly, managed the game well, carded in sensible manners. I don't really care to remember most refs, so I don't know if he is good or bad in general. Perfect final though.

the sold swords;
Already the eagle of Austria

the blood of Italy
and the Polish blood
Drank with Cossacks
But its heart was burnt.

Polish anthem

March, march, Dombrowski,
To Poland from the Italian land.
Under your command
We shall rejoin the nation

amazing, I ignored it

Moreover I like to remember that the  first Northern Italy city liberated from Nazi-fascism occupation was Bologna and this was  thanks to Poles

Im very happy with Mole back here as all his comments were spot on, showed how mature he's become and had class.

England need to stay good so we can see him on here more often.

I had talked dirty about Kuipers, I remember him in UCL with my teams or others and he was not good. Just for this. I don't rate him
I didn't fear him for the final because I don't like to complain before refs before match , at max after, but it doesn't make sense before it plays .
We can't predict how ref acts, and I don't follow conspiracy narrative... I had other worries , as Wembley factor, our fullback etc

Anyway ref had his best match in career probably, perfect essentially , absolutely not a homemade ref , he was even comprehensive towards Jorginho or Chiellini in two situations,

One more thing: you reap what you sow. The English have been far too negative given their attacking talent this entire tournament. The results have been good but I think the results would have been the same even if they were more attacking.

When they needed a goal they couldn't create many quality chances. Honestly looked like in extra time they were just playing for penalty kicks. I'm not sure why you would want that against the Italians, especially when you're England

I'm not English so I didn't really care that they lost, but if I had any care at all, it was gone after seeing their negativity catch up to them.

Based on results, I wouldn't fire Southgate. Based on my own perception of his managerial abilities and their inability in the WC semis and Euro semifinals (imo, the only teams they've faced in these last two runs who were either at their level or above them), I personally would get rid of him.

Congrats to all Italy fans.

Supported them as a kid but when I grew up and club football took over, it felt awkward being a supporter of a foreign national team.

That and the annoying and racist Azzurri fanboys from countries like US or Canada pretending to be more Italian than Italians themselves, the corrupt FIGC and the backward state of Italian football in general made me completely steer clear from them. Also international football gradually got boring over the years so...

Still this is a great victory for Italy as a nation and happy for them that they won. I am still hoping Serie A picks itself up as a league as a result of this success given most players were home based, but I wouldn't bet on it. More likely that more Italian players will start playing for foreign teams in richer leagues.

Having said that, this success majorly goes to Mancini and the work he's done in the last couple of years. A strong Italy is always good for international football. Let's hope Brazil bounces back the same way too.

Its fully accurate.

Stats say domestic violence rises 38% after each lost world cup.


Unique is likely responsible for 1.5 percent given he is also married to his wife in Milton-Keynes and Brighton.

Yes true , I didn't expect me this collective celebration for Italy
Danish, Poland, Sweden, Germans etc   nice Very Happy
talking for me, on average Inter win 1 scudetto every 9 years and Italy takes even more time . But yet I've celebrated both things this year. Is it happened really ?

ah the end you can see lowest common denominator in the life

Circle of his career was fulfilled with NT victory.

He always had a complicated relationship with Nazionale. Mainly due to quarrells with managers.
He performed at Euro 88, but he played  0 minutes in Italy 90. Then Sacchi came and it was the definite storm. Not called up anymore for  Italy.
A sort of Italian Cantona.

Now he's getting that success in NT that missed totally as player.

Probably he learned his same errors and he  he sees himself in some situations and this permitts to read them
Having said that, beyond the psychological aspect, his  Nazionale plays a beautiful football


He filled his real hole in career, even winning for Italy.

And not just this.

At Wembley.

Mancini and Vialli got  the revenge from that bitter defeat: in May 1992, Mancini and Vialli’s Sampdoria lost the Champions League  final against Barcelona at Wembley.

Sirigu wrote:Both Giorgio Chiellini and Alessandro Florenzi reveal Salvatore Sirigu made Italy players cry on their way to Wembley last night: ‘He had prepared something special..’

Itay won the European Championship for the second time in history, beating England on penalties at Wembley Stadium.

After the game, Chiellini and Florenzi revealed how Salvatore Sirigu had motivated the Azzurri ahead of the Final.

“Sirigu has been one of the key players in the dressing room,” Florenzi said.

“Before the game, he gave each one of us a note written by him, with his thoughts about us. Every note was different,” the former PSG man revealed.

However, that was not the only thing Sirigu had prepared.

“Today, he made us cry,” Chiellini revealed.

“He showed us a video of our relatives before the game and made us cry.”

Sirigu only played one minute in the tournament, replacing Gigio Donnarumma in the stoppages of Italy’s last group stage game against Wales.

Donnarumma, who has been named Player of the Tournament, revealed the Torino goalkeeper had played a key role in helping him prepare for the penalty shootout against Spain in the semifinals.




So the MF had so much time on the bench he hand-crafted a letter to each player.

The Mancini-Vialli friendship through the tournament was actually one of the best things. These two legends have been so close for so many years and Vialli has gone through a lot so happy for him.

Officially now Mancini is known as a hall of famer coach as a whole. And quite young for it.

Makes me remember a NFL quarterback did something similar recently, not sure if Tom Brady or who else. After getting a record he sent a personalized letter to every single receiver he completed a pass to. Great gesture

Sirigu is known as a good guy, not surprised by his class. As a back-up keeper being a cement in locker room is making the best out of your opportunity. Respect

My favorite moments of the Euro is Chiellini's behavior in general Laughing

No of course he is, he is and had an unlucky career for someone of his talent. He's been good for Italy when he plays and a Donnarumma said his advice during each penalty shoot-out really helped. Great man.

Well I heard to talk Sirigu after Torino-Lazio 0-0 (Torino got saved after this result)

Well, he ' s incredibly smart !. I was sincerely surprised for  his mastery of language and the clarity of arguments ! , so rare for football players

Football players' interview are boring, very banal and strechted ... his interview was opposite.

It impressed me so much that I still remember that interview.

He's a very good GK, not a top but one level below, now he's finished (just two years ago he was great, but  his last  season at Torino was  tragic... He was called up because he belongs to this group. And 2nd GK and 3rd GK are always choices based on it) but beyond a player there' s also a man , and he's a leader really.

But I'm glad you have happy memories of it. I wasn't going to watch the final, but did so because i wanted to spend time with Family.

I'm glad i did despite we lost, i actually enjoyed watching the game which was refreshing. It hasn't happened in a long time.

Great that you enjoyed watching the game.

I think international football is nice to watch for being simpler and more passionate than club football. That is if the teams are relatively close in quality.
