The Final Is Set

It's Italy versus England on Sunday in the final of Euro 2020.

I genuinely didn't think that England would have made the final. 

Add on top of that the notion that Italy would be the underdogs against England. 

That's insane. Italy is absolutely the better team of the two. 

Yesterday's game - for England against Denmark - could have been a totally different story if the referee, and VAR, weren't so inept to see that Raheem Sterling dived to secure an extra time penalty which resulted in Harry Kane scoring after his kick was initially stopped.

It's quite sad to see England fans fail to acknowledge they were gifted the penalty through - at best - a slip or, at worst - cheating. 

The same folk have spent the last thirty-five years moaning about Diego Maradona's Hand of God in the quarter finals of the Mexico '86 World Cup.
