I ‘talk’ to a lot of folks from England on Twitch, thanks to Covid, and I’d love to see it come home for them, and we all think it will come down to penalties today. I agree with @LadyStarblade that Kane will get a goal, and probably Sterling will get one late that will throw it into extra time. Italy is amazing with penalty kicks, they seem to thrive under pressure. I’m throwing in 2-2 by 90, and Italy taking it with penalties.
Who knows though, footy is a fickle mistress, like when Leicester City blew everyone’s minds, maybe some of the 3 Lions youngsters will pull it through and bring it home!
I splurged on Peacock Premium and during the pandemic I watched so. much. EPL. I like most of the English players, so I’m far more attached to them. I also agree Sterling’s got a goal in him.
Not sure if it’ll go to extra time / penalties, especially if England scores first. They are going to have a crap ton of momentum if they break out first. I admittedly am not as familiar with the Italian team, but they wouldn’t have gotten to the final if they weren’t capable of winning.
And Leicester? Someone brought up Leicester? They’re my EPL squad! Them and Brighton. Up Foxes and Gulls!
I agree, I hope England gets the first goal, at least within the first half, that should give them the drive, but Italy has that ‘oh yeah? watch this’ thing where they try to match goals.
Yeah, I remember when Leicester took the EPL by storm a few seasons ago, Vardy and Mahrez were unstoppable. I’m a ManUnited supporter for EPL and BayernMunich supporter for Bundesliga. I can’t do the additional subscription services right now, so I live with whats televised…
ManU is my 3rd team; my sister and BiL are big supporters and I’ve been a huge fan of David de Gea since he was a scrawny teenager playing for Atletico Madrid. I also like Bayern a lot; Bastian Schweinsteiger got me watching Bayern back in the day! Hoping the schedule will work out that I can catch a match when I’m in Munich next year.
And I hear ya on the subscription services; if you are able in the future, you really do get the whole freaking EPL on Peacock.
I’m so stoked for today; it really should be a barnburner! (Cheese optional.)
de Gea is amazing! My fav player for Bayern is Thomas Mueller. A few years back when I lived in Chicago, I got tickets to the practice and match of ManUtd and Bayern, boy was I torn! Enjoyed it though! Two of my bucket list items is to see a MU match at Old Trafford and a BM match at Allianz Arena…
