Amazing end to the 90 minutes....again

Allez Les bl... Blancs  ;D

Well done England in a very even game.  8)

Shame the game was on ITV. It would have been pleasant to see Shearer etc. eating a large slice of humble pie after tonight.

Foden nearly outdid Yamal on his curler shot. It deserved better!!

Going to be interesting how Southgate approaches the Spain game now.

If England reaches the final (and goes one better), you'll soon forget the dire early games.

Ahem..  ;D

Obviously delighted with result and England deserved it, just. We did get lucky with the penalty call though. I can only recall one occasion when a referee upheld his original decision after it being questioned by VAR and called to monitor review.

Yes, the penalty was lucky but they played with great resilience.

They did, even go as far to say played some good stuff in the first half. Embarrassing to see Kane poleaxed by a foot injury and get up to take the penalty.

I have to disagree with you regarding the penalty. Dumfries launched himself through the air at Kane, leading with his foot. This was a potential leg breaker and he should have got a yellow card IMO. What pundits and other critics have failed to see/mention is that he started this 'tackle' before Kane had made contact with the ball. This makes the fact that the 'tackle' occurred after the ball had gone immaterial. Now I'm not saying that Dumfries was trying to deliberately injure Kane, he was probably just trying to block the shot but it was rather reckless and a penalty was the correct decision.

What bugs me about all of this is that most of the pundits and other 'experts' (coaches/online contributors/etc) don't have a full knowledge of the laws of the game. And before you question my bona fides, I was a qualified referee for many years and I had to know the game inside out to function in that role.
