  • IMO politics and social issues should stay out of sports. Taking the knee, not taking the knee. Enough already. Just entertain us.

  • England stealing African players and are the first to shout "RACISM" after losing. England's WOKE agenda was defeated. Instead of concentrating on football, England was busy being WOKE, Thank you Italy for winning. Blacks around the world supported you and are celebrating your victory! We're tired of being used as props by countries who benefited from the slave trade and have never apologized for it. VIVA AZZURI!!

  • So you think Racissim is the Problem ? the racissim that got to so many people around the world its the fact that the all in all behaviour of the the english supporters as for decades we have been seeing violence from the brits all over the world when there is a football event at a top stage and also booing for national anthems ? Omg . 2 The fact no one went to greet an italian president in the UK on Sunday . 3 The fact the players were taking off there medals strait away . Is this the right example for so many kids watching thier icons hoping one day they will be like them . The english were always with this superiority complex but not only coz im an italian football fan penaltys or not even the dumb got it clear who the better team was in the ground and this competion was tailor made for the brits to win and once again they did not deliver for thier country . No ifs and no buts - [ ]

  • Oh Gary. I’ve never commented on a thread about racism and football prior but I do think you are being very naive. Your opinion is exactly that and to blame, frankly brighter people because you don’t understand it or worse because you think you do…is a pity. I think you are right that racism is completely unacceptable but to be so one eyed as to think you have the answer is just silly beyond belief. I love your courage but don’t dismiss other people’s courage because it doesn’t fit your thinking

  • JUST MEDIA FODA. TOMORROWS . 🐠 AND 🍟. WRAPPINGS

  • YET YOU COME UP. WITH LAME. EXCUSES. OK. NO WONDER YOU NEVER GOT FAR. PLAYING FOR 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿. AND

  • GARY NEVEL. ANOTHER. HYPED POMPUS. PASSED HIS PEAK. THINKS 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿. TO WIN. AND EAT HUMBLE 🥧.

  • The team that takes the first penalty usually wins in shoot-outs.

  • Wise guy, and symphatic, Neville

  • He should stand for Parliament.

  • Hope those 3 don't get to take penalties for England again, They'll miss.

  • The only way England could have won if Final was decided on some random rule such as - who took more # of corners. Like Cricket WC was handed to them on # of boundaries, they never won it

  • AS A ITALY FAN, WE HAVE ALSO HAVE LOST ON PENALTIES IN WORLD CUP AND EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS, SO I DO UNDERSTAND HOW ENGLAND IS FEELING. IT IS DOWN WHO HAS THE BOTTLE, THE PENALTY TAKER OR KEEPER TO WIN THE MIND GAMES. IF FOOTBALL IS EVER TO COME HOME, ENGLAND NEEDS TO PLAY TO THEIR STRENGTHS OR FIND PLAYERS OF QUALITY IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE THAT CAN COMPETE AGAINST THE BEST IN THE WORLD CUP. ENGLAND AFTER TAKING THE LEAD, LOST CONTROL OF THE GAME AND WE, ITALY TOOK CONTROL, GOT THE EQUALISER, AND COULD HAVE WON IT, BEFORE WE DID ON PENALTIES. ENGLAND PLAYED WELL IN PATCHES AND COULD NOT SEE US LOSING THE GAME. ONLY ON PENALTIES, IF TRUTH BE TOLD.

  • Oh i though Italy wasn't good enough to get in the final, but now that you've lost "they are a very good team, great possession.." 🙄🙄

  • Thank you, Gary Neville. That was brilliant.

  • ''Moving on from that dissapointment''. Well spoken by Gary Neville. It's the so called leaders of the world, who need to change.. People will follo

  • Can almost hear the producers yelling "change the subject" into the presenters' ears.

  • Mount and trippier were ahead of Saka and Sancho but of course they were subbed off.

  • Gary, whilst stoking division, then calls for unity. England were awful both sides of half time. His Dad is a pervert, Even his wife cheated on him

  • I love this guy, well done such a decent good man bless him

  • Whole new respect for Neville ❤️

  • Cheaters lost final. Nothing good about English football

  • I didn’t hear Neville mentioning the fact that Harry Kane has had more on line abuse than any other English player. Not during this interview or since. It’s not only about racism but certain people would want you to believe it is....

  • I have so much admiration for Neville. He’s not afraid to tell it like it is and put our negligent government on blast in an articulate manner (as usual.) well done Gary. You speak for the true England fan. Any ‘fan’ who gave those three young lads abuse are no friends of England or society in general. Return to the gutter you came from and rot.

  • Never bend the knee.

  • I agree with what Gary is saying.

  • Thanks to Gary for being very fair and honest. England needs to fix the issue of their football fans. The whole world celebrated England's defeat because of behavior of their fans.

  • I love all the armchair coaches 😂 I think Southgate knows a little bit more about football than you lot. He did what he had to do. Non England fan 🤷 You were beaten by a team on a 33 game winning streak. Deal with it 😂

  • Gary , stick to football and not politics mate . The point of allowing people to boo goes a lot deeper than racism and football. It’s about freedom of expression and speech. It’s a hard subject ,and difficult to get your head round but you should before you make any more comments like that . I absolutely hate racists and bigotry comments, like most people do. But I whole heartedly support the right to speak and think freely . A world without freedom ( the right )to offend people’s feelings is a near on impossible world to live in . And thankfully the law in our country keeps out of this ( for now). You won’t fix racists by making it illegally to say what they think 💭. That comes from from education and social mixing. And were do you draw the line on offensive language? I’m an atheist.A lot of people might find that deeply offensive. Should that be illegal also ? I accept that hearing nasty words and comments as part of the deal we have to accept . The only way I see to help the current issue is to make it impossible to write these comments on social media anonymously . If people stood to account for everything they said I believe much of this problem would soon go away. But not because the law would need to enforce it .There are to many pathetic keyboard warriors hiding behind ip addresses. If people had to use there actual name and address on social platforms,they might just think twice before saying such garbage about other people in society.

    • responsibilty for making the worst decisions in the final..to support him totally like this is ridiculous..

  • We played a back 6 , and we should have gone punch for punch with the teams we beat because we are supposedly ranked higher than they were .We didn’t beat any team we should not have beaten. Fans are annoyed because in 96 we went out with our best players on the pitch . In 2020 our best players where on the bench. Gascoigne would have never been dropped because he wasn’t defensive enough.Southgate made poor decisions in my opinion. We got to the final because of the results and luck around us .

  • identifies the age old problem of not being able to keep the ball yet he himself recommended picking a team (sans grealish and foden) that was going to have exactly that problem.

  • Sto tizio era quello che era d’accordo con Vieira , dicevano che l’Italia non sarebbe arrivata fino in fondo. Un grande intenditore non c’è che dire 🤣🤣🤣

  • All these english pundits are jokers. They think they are god of football As per them italy had no chance of winning the cup and now they are saying they are proud of their team Lollllll

  • Agree totally.

  • Promoting inclusion is vital.

  • Great analysis!

  • Great analysis!

  • BRAINWASHED PUBLIC

  • BIg up G Nev though, I felt I was listening to a brother. Gone up tenfold

  • Gary was SPOT ON about the moral vacuum in our society led by social media, AND the CURRENT GOVERNMENT of our country😠😠😠😠😠

  • According to him England did everything well..they were great..but apart from the first 20 or so minutes..they were totally and completely outplayed..the Manager has to take responsibilty for making the worst decisions in the final..to support him totally like this is ridiculous..

  • The best thing about England losing is we don't have to listen to this Manc chump boring on about divershitty being great.

    • The blacks in England team are african not English FACT no need for racism but let's be factual they are African not English Anglo saxon

  • I hated Neville as a player but he’s such a decent, honest person.

  • Gary Neville eating humble pie he said 🇮🇹 Italy werent good enough to win it HAHAHAHA!

  • Gary neville for pm

  • Gary you need to learn about football more. You said Italy wasn't tested when they faced a very good team Turkey and Switzerland first two games you disrespected turkey and Switzerland saying they weak teams when they are top teams with your friend Viera who was nothing but a liar and jealous of italian style. Italy won its over now they can shut their mouths and cry some more .

    • he had available .He's one of the highest paid international managers in international football, but bottled it when he could have won it .He's got a really good striker in Kane ,

  • Gary is being so diplomatic and avoiding calling a spade a spade

  • Thank you Gary!

  • blah blah blah

  • Well said Gary

  • I am soo proud of England football team and the players particularly. I am also soo glad that Gary Neville has the minerals to call it as it is. The political structure we have at the moment under the Prime Minister and particularly the Home Minister is an utter disgrace. I am ashamed to say I voted for them too. Gary is completely right in what he says. I have had the privelege of seeing Bukayo Saka's debut at the Emirates and as an Arsenal fan - I cant wait to have him back from international duty and I am sure the same can be said of the Manchester United boys too. As a non-white young man living in Britain I can say racism is alive and well and that racism permeates even the Emirates Stadium in respect of the players I've seen during my time at the ground - Mesut Ozil being one along with a few other non-English players and yes I have heard the N word used. We have a problem in Britain with racism - apparently being British born and bred but this stretches more broadly to the European continent also. It isn't right and it isn't ok and it must change

  • He may not get his contract as a pundit renewed. Hope not

  • 100% agree !!!

  • The best comments I've heard post Euro finals well done Gary great

  • Englands 2 x central midfielders were not technically good enough to keep control in the game, technical ability is still lacking in the squad as a whole as it is in english football in the whole, thats why we have so many foreign players in the league

  • The blacks in England team are african not English FACT no need for racism but let's be factual they are African not English Anglo saxon

  • U ddnt play Jack earlier..biggest mistake..d only mistake actually...shame

  • Media plan if England won: Say "diversity" won them the Euros, mark it as the beginning of a new "colour blind British patriotism." Media plan B: Place black players at center of a victim narrative and create a big discussion around "racism" for the next few weeks.

    • 100% Truth!!

    • The shootout with political. Southgate is a massive supporter of BLM. Play football and keep ideologies out of spots.

  • Well said, Gary. Very well said. Legend

  • Don't be swayed by the mainstream media. Say yes to racism.

  • Swap the managers over, England win .....The style of play and the way the benches were utilised reflected the managers philosophies. Look at them as players one a steady Eddie centre half ,the other,one of the best no 10s in Europe .Southgate did well getting us there .But should have been much more positive in the final especially with the talent he had available .He's one of the highest paid international managers in international football, but bottled it when he could have won it .He's got a really good striker in Kane , who surely would have benefited with a couple more creative players on the pitch .Crikey I remember in 90,At least Bobby Robson showed faith in the flawed genius that was Paul Gascoigne. Would loved Southgate to have done the same with Grealish, Sancho,ect in the final ......so frustrating .Carbon copy of the 2018 semi v Croatia. 😕

  • Rashford and his stutter, sent England to the gutter.

  • Englands Coach is a Coward🤷‍♂️

  • European Cup 1980 : Italy - England 1-0 World Cup 1990: Italy - England 2-1 World Cup 2014 : Italy - England 2-1 European Cup 2021: Italy- England 4-3 TRY WITH CRICKET 🏏

  • Funny how all these overpaid tosspots love to milk it

  • Leave politics to white man

    • Southgate should have considered if he is such a great man manager. YNWA

  • America England 🤝 Racism

  • At the end of the day bad sore arrogant stinking attitude losers don't deserve to be the winner's regardless what ever country you represent, and taking off their medals giving the younth very negative impression on bad sportsmanship, missing 3 penalty goals speaks for it's self...

  • Gary's right abt bot being suprised about racism, it's stating to happen to often and it's starting to become normal.

  • Are Italy still going to fall short?

  • Most of it coming from So called English fans that’s a fact.🤫

  • He says what should be said

  • The shootout with political. Southgate is a massive supporter of BLM. Play football and keep ideologies out of spots.

  • What ever way you look at it, bringing Rashford and Sancho on with seconds to go was just wrong. And to make Saka take the most important one was just wrong. Surely one of the senior players should have asked Southgate if he wanted to reconsider. Shaw, Pickford, Stones, Henderson, Grealish and others should have stood up.

  • Gary is spot on

  • Valencia what happened Gary lol

  • do something about it

  • Neville, sai come si dice a ROMA - "attaccate ar cazzx " 🏆It's coming ROME 🇮🇹 😊🤣

  • feck BLM..its a marcist movement started 10years ago in anerican universities. they are a fascist organisation imposing their will by force. free speach and the truth is their target to destroy. they are the nemisis to freedom do as the hunGarians did. stand and SHOW RESPECT.

  • Like all pundits, sometimes he calls in correctly, often they’re just blowing hot air. Bending the knee for BLM, Southgate and the players clearly genuinely believe they are performing the gesture for all the right reasons, but unfortunately it is such a device gesture it will always garner as many objectors as supporters. IMO it doesn’t matter how often you tell me the apple you gave me is in fact an orange, it will still taste like an apple. As for England team, clearly Southgate called many decisions correctly during the tournament, his substitutions during the tournament seemed odd though, consistently taking off the best player during the matches. In the final our front three were totally ineffective during the second half, because of southgate’s tactics. Kane was never going to be subbed as a potential penalty taker, wrongly in my opinion, hIs form did not warrant such game time. In the end we looked like a team that were playing for pens and inevitably got the most likely result. Can’t help wandering why Southgate chose the pen takers he did, particularly as all 3 who missed aren’t regular pen takers, can’t help thinking there was another agenda and they were effectively thrown under the bus which Southgate should have considered if he is such a great man manager. YNWA

  • As a City fan, I applaud Gary Neville! Spot on Gary, well done

  • Media at it again

  • The way Meagan Merkel was treated by the RF and called "That Woman" by the person who is the sponsor of football.

  • G Nev is a king 👑

  • GREAT WORDS GARY

  • Penalties are always a lottery. It’s quite hard to win a match when you are playing against 12 men. The referee may as well have been wearing a blue shirt, because he was unbelievably biased towards Italy. Chiellini should have been sent off for his blatant shirt tug on Saka and nothing more needs to be said about Jorginhio’s disgusting tackle on Grealish. Overall, the better side won, but I’m bitter because we lost to a bunch of dirty fouling arseholes. And by the way, the people who racially abused our players aren’t true fans, as Harry Kane said, we don’t want you! You should be ashamed of yourselves! 😭😭

    • Kneeling with a clenched fist so theatrical that it is probably responsible for provoking a reaction from Racists

  • Gary knows England’s failure better than most. It’s coming home! Great young players. Showed resilience. Belief. Good group. Blah, blah, blah. Oh, take the positives. Southgate failed to win. Second big game where England were good for 45 minutes. Analyze that Gary. Why did they blow up? What needs to be done to win? You get paid to tell us. But hey. You coached a team that could not better Costa Rica, so what could you possibly know.

  • I’m Liverpool supporter. Gary just nailed it kudors

  • No one dares to say it as it is. England lost because Southgate was being too safe and refused to make early subs

  • Gary Neville is just so spot on all the time fantastic commentator

  • Is it not negative to think we can’t go toe to toe with these teams. I believe in our squad.

  • Prime Minister is correct.

  • Yup.. I think everyone knew they were gonna get thrashed online. It was the first thing I thought when they missed

  • Southgate was wanking at the thought of the ‘black three lions’ headline in the guardian the next day. Can’t tell me that didn’t influence his decision when they’ve been using the success of multiracial national football teams to try to infer that diversity is superior to homogeneity so yes we’re gonna throw it back in your face when diversity fails. Own it.

  • The English had the country in there hands but at th end of the day they fell at the last hurdle which is the norm! even after 55 years

  • Declan Rice was incredible in the 1st half

  • I agree that the conservative approach was appropriate to get to the final; however; for the final we were nowhere near aggressive enough. We should have approached the game with the attitude to win or lose 4-0 at 90 minutes not 1-1 at 120 minutes with a crap shoot of a penalty shoot out.

  • Where was all this racism? I'm not saying there wasn't any. But I watched Southgate get a gift goal two minutes into the game, then do nothing for the next 88 minutes trying to defend a 1 goal lead. Then do the same thing trying to get to penalties, where he completely botched it. Then, what seemed like 10 minutes later, the mainstream media is telling us all about RACISM, and the English fans. Again, not saying there wasn't any racism, but man that was FAST. It was as if the media was just waiting back stage, anxious to get out there and play their part.

  • Full Respects to Gary Neville !

  • Kneeling with a clenched fist so theatrical that it is probably responsible for provoking a reaction from Racists

    • racists are geo mapped to india/Pakistan and then Saudi egypt. . they are brown themselves
