It was the first time we absorbed in the tournament, but we responded properly and showed character. We knew it would be tough. "And the aggressiveness will make the difference. We know what football means to our country. The energies, the atmosphere ... it was amazing. Now we have Italy. We will celebrate a little and focus on the Italians."

On the crucial whistle in overtime he said: "Obviously there was a penalty. I went into the box, he put his foot down and tripped me up. A penalty was clear."


Gareth Southgate

concluded: "I'm so proud of the players, it was amazing to be a part of this event. The fans were wonderful throughout the evening. We knew it would be a direct game, we told the players we would have to be patient and they would have to know how to get out of complicated situations. It".

Southgate commented on the controversial penalty and said: "I did not see the move exactly, but I think Sterling has made it difficult for them in this wing the whole game."

Harry Kane

England newspapers tried for a moment to forget about the VAR scandal and focus on the team’s tremendous achievement, which hopes to put an end to the 55-year drought. "England in the final, and these are the strangest, rarest and most beautiful words that can be written," the Times noted. "Could 55 years of an ongoing nightmare be coming to an end? England know they now face the biggest challenge facing Germany. Either way, regardless of the penalty shootout, they have rightly reached the final, although there is no doubt that the goddess of luck smiled at them in overtime."

"Independent" wrote that "despite the strange circumstances, this is one of the great days of the nation, one of the great games of the team. It is time to celebrate."

Daily Mail commentator Martin Samuel suggested to the team fans: "Drink as much as you can, celebrate as much as you can, because who knows when such a moment will come again. This is the most beloved team we have had in years. We love them, what they represent, you "Their values, their composure, their courage. It's amazing to see how we have become one of the great losers in the football world, great winners."

The Sun sang and wrote that "55 years of pain and 16 months of frustrating epidemics have disappeared in one moment of an explosion of happiness."

The numbers

  • England will play in the Euro final for the first time in its history.

    Like in the only World Cup she won, in 1966, it happens at home.

  • England are the 13th team in history to reach the Euro final, and the first new to do so since Portugal and Greece in 2004.

  • England have made history and are the only team not to have conceded in their first five games in the Euros.

  • England returns to the final of a major tournament for the first time since 1966, when it won the World Cup.

    55 years have passed - this is the biggest gap of any team between finals.

  • England played 37 games in the European Championships, without appearing in the final.

    More than any other team that has not reached this status.

    Now the wait is over.

  • Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford broke Gordon Banks' record with 725 minutes without an interception in the national team uniform, until he succumbed to a free kick by Mikkel Damsgor.

  • Harry Kane is now England's top scorer in major tournaments along with Gary Lineker - 10 goals each.

  • It has been the Euro with the highest ever goal average (since the home stage started) - 2.80 goals per game.

  • Jordan Pickford did not absorb for 725 minutes in a row as he stood at the national team goal, four minutes longer than Gordon Banks' previous record of 1966.

  • The English team absorbed the first goal in 691 minutes.

    This is the first mandatory goal to the detriment of the Three Lions team since March.

  • Mikel Damsgor's goal was the first in the current Euro to be scored directly from a free kick.

  • The own goal scored by Simon Kiar is the first own goal enjoyed by the English team at the European Championships, and the third ever scored in a major tournament (against Czechoslovakia in 1982 and against Paraguay in 2006).

  • This is the first time since Euro 2000 that the two semi-finals have been extended.
