  • Your fans are really incredible, incredible unfair and have no respect. Forza Italia!

  • the English are allowed to do it. but you can still tell how many idiots are still on the road and making world war comparisons. in so far we hope that Italy will definitely win. they just deserve it more. :-)

  • When did Sweet Caroline become an England anthem? I've watched England for over 30 years and only in this tournament have I seen England fans sing that song. It was always more of a Northern Ireland fan song.

  • England 1 - 2 Denmark

  • Lets hope its not another Iceland performance, and we dont underestimate Ukraine there a good hard working team, be focused and kill them off early lets pray for England LADS 💪🏻🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🙏🏻🍻

  • Why are white people always on the thumbnails! Just say it you.will.never accept us lol only like us when we do something for ya.. that's why I don't support England England is a foreign team treat everyone equally not just the Caucasian

  • Just the fact we can get to the semi’s is giving me a Semi 😂

    • Anything but a final is a massive failure praying we dont bottle

  • Love how every interview i’ve seen with our players since this victory shows that the team are not resting on their laurels and are focused and raring to go against the Ukraine on Saturday. What we need to be wary of is complacency so just keep your feet on the ground please lads!

  • Most Front News Papers Had Kane On it 🤔What About Sterling🤔After Beating Germany.

  • the player were NOT immense.. Germany were very very poor.. the whole tournament has been below par... so if england win, it's been fixed this way...

  • Terrific.

  • Cue the open top bus Knighthoods to Celebrate getting past 2nd Round WOW

  • Is Southgate on drugs, this worse German team for years were the better team til after the first goal, they look the worse team out of all that's qualified for quarters,boring and predictable,the kid sako been great, freakish makes a big difference when he comes on.Pickford is odds on make a big mistake, he loves the cameras , as the other night shows , making a meal out of simple saves that were hit right at him with a clear view.with no travelling and home advantage we have had an advantage over many others teams.I can't remember one memorable moment or piece of magic to talk about at all about england so far.

  • What a sensible and modest guy Gareth is. I wish him all the success in the world.

  • I truly believe it's the press and the pundits who jinx england football in every major tournament. if the team doesn't do it themselves. but this time the team seems to be learning their lessons and not thinking ahead and letting their thoughts and words run away with them. but the press is doing it as always...i think its the only press in the world that (after england gets through the early stages) starts collectively thinking and saying stupid things like 'maybe this is england's year' or 'there is a path to victory' or 'england could win it', 'is it too early to predict england victory', 'with a bit of luck england could go all the way'. The first problem is that the press talks about the 'england' football team as if they are not part of it...they never say 'we could win this tournament'. it's always 'england' like a third person. that reveals a lot about where the press in england stands with regard to patriotic football supporters. Second (and main) problem is they need to STFU and stop putting absurd headlines out there while the tournament is still going. Show some respect for the players and supporters (and keep silent on your unhelpful worthless opinions about the possible outcome) while they are in the midst of the tournament.

  • They may of beat Germany,but the performance was disgusting.

  • I’ll tell you whose crap… ‘the press’, the questions are so lame.. They don’t sound if they have a gcse between them ..

  • Fantastic, gave us immense pleasure…Second half the teams tackling … was great … Got to get up for the next game, this one will have been draining …

  • Ukraine are gonna go full Chernobyl on Blighty's sorry pale behinds. Oleksandr Volodymyrovych Zinchenko's third nipple is Ukraine's secret weapon.

  • The apathetic kick finallly match because toothpaste findingsinitially whistle given a concerned jumbo. workable, wretched ticket

  • We just need to stay focused, never underestimate Ukraine then we can the same atmosphere as Tuesday next Wednesday in the Semi's as Pickford played out of his skin, Grealish came on as a super sub, Kane has got his confidence back, hopefully, one or two from him on Sat and maybe Sterling could get the golden boot?

  • Your the man , Gareth!! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

  • " journalists " .... you forgot to ask about Foden's hair cut

  • I don't expect England to win the tournament, I never expected for England to win the tournament, but I've always said, if they get to the semi-finals at the very least, then I would say that it was a *successful* tournament....

  • It’s coming home

  • Legend.

  • Grealish has to start the next game most direct attacking player England have .... underrated.

    • If you listen to Southgate's explanation - he'd want to start Grealish but he's not as fit as the rest of the players due to missing four months through injury. He'll definitely play - it's just a question of when.

  • Sir blinks a lot

  • Congrats for the victory ✌️

  • I think it will be immense lol

  • why struggle to get goals for 70 mins every game then bring grealish on and score. surely start him and get more goals from the get go. strange. he obviously should be starting.

  • in gareth we trust

  • England probably has the best defence in the world.

  • its the blm boys ... cant beat the booing of the knee also ... loved how the moronic players got up in about 2 sec once they heard the booing .... total jokers

    • The german team had to kneel in Worship of the Greatest Chancelleress of all Time, of all History and all Countries around the Globe. If they had refused, they would have their heads chopped off on return to Germany.

  • Sterling was born in Jamaica then, not bad thing the British empire is it) so seeds amazing things.

  • Congrsts, england!!!.... They always lose on the first round, so...... I am really happy they succeeded this time!!! 💖💖💖

  • People will still have a go at the manager if we won the next 20 world cups and 60 euros Some morons in media , two hats

  • Is he watching the same england games as us? Because they have played boring football in all 4 games they've been average at best with the amount of quality in the team.

  • Very average tactics...team too defensive and boring

  • The amount of time Gareth said immense was immense

  • Very poor play and game but people only see the score ...Spain is the favourite, then Italy then England then Belgium.

  • My manager 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

  • I was actually pleasantly surprised even SHOCKED how Southgate got it So Perfect vs Germany, hopefully England don't go and ruin it now vs Ukraine who will be hard and then Denmark if we get there who are untouchable atm

    • @Akira Natsume Exactly Denmark are untouchable imo i think if england do beat ukraine big IF we might loose to Denmark. A lot are like ye emotional but won't be too hard its going to be really tough

    • Denmark is gonna be really tough. In the group stage, they looked set for elimination, being in last place, but after seeing Eriksen alive and well which gave the Danes an immense mental confidence boost, they bagged 4 against Russia for a 4-1 win that set them through the group. They did so again against Wales in the Round of 16 for a 4-0 win and a place in the quarter finals. They might achieve a 3peat of 4 goals in 3 consecutive matches when they play against Czech Republic.

  • We were well below our best and Germany were worse. Don't get carried away. Have only seen the Germans play that bad once before. I have faith in Gareth but not in the squad

    • @fUNNY 4567 They were nowhere near their best

    • England were good what are you on about

    • Müller wouldn't have bungled the 1:1 in his prime time, standing alone in front of the english keeper.

  • Ronaldo takes over editing duties at 0:14 😁

  • What a performance , come on England lets bring ⚽️ home

  • Yet to concede a goal👏

  • If England beats a team, that team was bad, if England lose to a team, that team was decent. Yes Germany weren't at their 2014 strength, but let's not pretend they were not good

    • @fUNNY 4567 England are a top team, that's pretty obvious. If you're that insecure about the quality of the english team is because decades of bottling did it to you

    • @Jean Michel but there not a mess your just saying that because you dont want to admit that England are a top team

    • @fUNNY 4567 I already said the countries that I don't consider a mess, so if England do beat any of them I coudn't say they're a mess as well. Also, England didn't beat Portugal, so it's not like I'm only criticizing the NT's that England defeated

    • @Jean Michel so just because you dont want to give credit to England you just say Germany and Portugal are a mess, so basically any team England beat has to be a mess, if England beat Italy you will probably say Italy are a bad team and let England win.

    • @fUNNY 4567 I said out of the big ones these 3 (Italy, Belgium and maybe Brazil) were the ones I don't consider a mess. You can agree with this or not, but don't put words in my mouth

  • Why are people talking like England outplayed Germany and had the better chances? Did all those sitters Germany missed not happen?

    • Converting such "sitters" reliably makes the difference between a good player and a medium one.

  • Could've gone terribly wrong,how rice never got a red card is beyond me. Glad we won but the referee tore up the rule book with that yellow card.Straight red,without doubt.

  • Bloody hell listening to radio 2 today I thought they'd won the final unbelievable 🤣🤣🤣 and by the way Germany were woeful still to get 6 home games out of a possible 7 perhaps you should do quite well, anyway upwards and onwards 😉.

    • Spot on

  • Daily mail bloke sounded like hes just done 3 kilos of meth

  • England won't win anything. Comeback here to this comment if I am wrong (I'm not).

    • Anyone who’s not delusional knows that

  • Done us proud, united the country in the process and proved me completely wrong on multiple fronts. When you're use to being let down, you come to expect the worst. Couldn't be happier to be made to look the fool. Well done to all concerned.

    • Let's not get carried away now.

  • ukraine can barely last 90 minutes but we'll still need to have the right attitude going into saturday's game

  • Please dont underestimate Ukraine

  • Best of Luck England


  • Come on England

  • Best of Luck England

  • Now or never 🦁🦁🦁 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿


  • Come on England

  • Best of Luck England


  • Come on England

  • I want to hear Southgate sing sweet Caroline! 😄 We celebrate the players concentrate, which I believe they will. 🦁🦁🦁❤️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

  • 45k fans in the stadium, yet we cant even go and watch our kids sports days in an open field!!

  • Ukraine as a tough team lead by a legend of a player. England must be strong

  • "Gareth, people said you should play our best player in the games...but with you're genius you've proved that its much better to leave them on the bench...."

    • You seem more disappointed that he got it right than happy that we won

  • IT’S COMING HOME 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 ⚽️ 🏆

  • Imagine not starting Grealish next game

  • All I see is ballboy shoes 😂🤣😂

  • Not everyone is a fan of his lineups including me but I share my opinions after the game which should be the case for everyone.... But credit to Gareth for sticking with his plan even when he receives so much criticism 🙌🏻

  • Where's Graham Souness gone??????????

  • well that answer on Sweden was a waste of time...

  • Well done Mr. Southgate. Keep your England boys fully focused. Another battle lies ahead.

  • I am enjoy the most when 2 defensive midfielders Kevin & Rice play to the maximum level performance level eventually both are new to national squad and the formation of 1-3-4-3 playing 5defender add another 2 defensive midfielders was most marvelous enjoy of 90mim. I LOVE THE GAME in entire of my life as England Fans since 1986. This is the game bringing me to the standard of Three Lion and reflecting of EPL is top class. Hopefully they win the tournament.

  • Yawn you beat a crap German team

  • Win the Euros Southgate shoves all critics down the throat who doubt him, already done better as England manager than Hodgson and Erkisson put together, with worse players

  • Still not the man for the job

  • England wins one knock out stage they over celebrate and goes over their head and loss the next game

  • Did Sterling play? Oooh yeah…think I remember him scoring🤔. Did he make thumbnail picture…nope. It would be great to see him given more love that’s all.

    • He's gained enough respect mate, no worries..

  • It's one of your long lost European cousins from across the pond here. No man is perfect, no coach, no team in any sport. I do believe it's time though to start respecting this man who is on the front of the shield for the England national team. He's a wonderful guy, and cares about this team, maybe tactically he's not the sharpest coach but he has shown success in revamping the image and overall of the English team. Criticism is natural, it comes with the job, but what needs to happen now is for a nation to embrace the man with all his good and bad..... There is a very, very good chance the English team will make the final, and a solid chance they could win it all. Cheers.

  • I love southgate

  • How happy are IKEA knowing Sweden don't have to play England again

  • If he can make room for grealish and saka we will run ukraine raggid were levels above them

  • Of course the whole world will be reminded over and over that England won

    • @The Ugly Irish Im surprised an Irish said that

  • I hope this shuts all the haters up from slagging Southgate and the players off, get behind your national side and stop hating them.

    • @ExEssex : you see your expectations are too high, its not good to say that you will only respect the manager and team if they win which is an incredibly hard thing to do, just back the team we have already done will in the last few years

    • @ExEssex : there's no excuse for some of the hate aimed at Southgate and the players,constructive criticism I get, I get disillusioned the same as every single fan but not abuse which I've read since the tournament started.

    • Nobody hates them. We all want them to win. If they want love and respect, they need to win something. Then they'll be treated like heroes. I'm not holding my breath though. And that's entirely based on their track record. At every tournament (except one) in their entire history, they've blown it - sometimes at a late stage, sometimes early on. Let's face it, they've never even reach another final.

    • Totally agree

  • 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

  • Looks like the lions are awaking. Come on England.

  • Sterling is the best player on the team, just because he's black doesn't mean he ain't better than Harry Kane

    • @Petar Poposki Henderson is more of a leader than Kane

    • Idk why you are bringing race up. Harry Kane is the captain of the team for a reason. They also play 2 very different ways, so hard to compare them.

  • They were even though you set them up to fail

  • Is the Heineken placed at the press briefings for the interviewees to drink for pleasure or punishment?

  • Dont know what everyones on about me but that was the best i seen England play for years ...well dune and keep it up lads

    • Since 2001when they beat Germany 5-1 in Germany. It'd be nice to see them repeat that result, preferably in all three remaining matches...

    • Totally agree

  • I was one of those ranting at the tv to fetch Harry off, too deep,too static but credit where credits due he delivered when we needed it. Cmon England we can do this, stay focused and believe in yourselves.

  • Got to give it to the team they really took it to them in that second half more direct and positive

  • Hopefully once England lose the final this year they don’t do a complete turnaround and curse the players and the manager. England have never won a trophy (1966 doesn’t count for various reasons). Cycle of arrogance, jubilation at reaching quarter and semi finals and then falling flat on their face is really getting old.

    • 1966 doesn’t count good one😂😂 maybe not to you but everyone else is counting it

    • Why doesn’t 1966 count?

  • What a performance from the whole team. Especially the back 5 and Pickford

  • I know everyone is hyped to the max but one of these games I see it back firing all this defensive crap till the 70th minute or so and then bringing Grealish on what if you’re already 0-2 down after the Ukrainian team comes out and attacks you then there’s not enough time left I hope this doesn’t happen but I get the feeling it will sooner or later look how close it came with Muller yesterday. Imho it is time to change it up a bit. Why change it if it’s not broken I hear we’ll see y come Saturday I guess 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿
