(ANSA) – LONDON, 07 JUL – After four semi-finals lost – between the World Cup and the European ones – England broke a spell lasting over half a century to reach Italy in the Euro 2020 final. A personal redemption for Gareth Southgate, guilty of decisive penalty that had decreed the elimination of the Three Lions, in the European championship in 1996. “I am very proud of my players – the words of the English coach -.
We knew it wasn’t going to be easy, and it did. After the big win over Ukraine I told my guys that sooner or later we would have to show some resilience, maybe having to recover the score. I never doubted the team, I felt we would make it. Denmark has always been very underestimated, I consider them a great team, and this is an extra credit for my players, many of whom have limited international experience. “Appointment on Sunday 11 July for the Wembley final.” The thing most beautiful of this evening is that we have given the fans and the whole country a fantastic night, an emotion that will last for four days. Italy? It has been showing great value for two years now. They have real warrior defenders, but the whole team is very strong. It will be another epic match. But we want to write our history “.
