Does anyone else get the feeling that England haven't even got going yet? Have we got another couple of gears?
And if we win the tournament without having to raise it any further then was it just an underwhelming euros?
It's not been scintillating or magic. Sure, we got the results, and I've enjoyed bits of games... But there is something missing. Even tonight's game, 4-0 felt like a friendly for large parts.
Maybe I'm just missing a bit of flair, a bit of Gascoigne or something. 

Or maybe it's because we are coasting. I think if you end up 1-0 down in a match, and grab an equaliser in the 89th min and then win in extra time... You feel like you experienced something special. We are experiencing wins. But more or less expected wins...
I think if you are losing, and come back to win then you feel a massive release and a fire burns in you. But to never concede, play safe, and then score, I end up just feeling a sense of mild relief.

I want some drama.

But I also want us to win.

I tend to agree with you Biggie.
I know we beat the Germans with that really negative line up that Southgate put out, but it wasn't until Grealish came on that we started to create decent chances. When you look at the flare and awesome talent of some of those that couldn't get on the pitch tonight (Foden, Grealish, Rashford, Saka, Calvert Lewin, Bellingham etc) you wonder why we have to play both Phillips and Rice when we are playing Ukraine.
Great teams of the past and present like Brazil, Germany, Spain and France just take teams on and expect to beat them because they have better, more skillful players than than the opposition. For the first time ever I think England could be that good, if only he would take the handbrake off a bit!

Great post, Biggie, and an excellent win for England. Comfortable, controlled and never in doubt for the last 40 minutes, so very little tension or drama. Chance to field some of the other members of the squad and avoid red/yellow cards. Made us all happy and proud. I can understand Gareth's caution in the light of previous experiences. His approach is working and we're all glad.

But on the very same day we experienced what can happen within us when an exuberant attacking approach is given free rein. Raducanu's scintillating, fearless performance had the audience at Wimbledon and at home on our feet every thrilling minute.

God willing, this is a future superstar making us all gasp in wonder at her courage and scintillating strokeplay.

It was a soft one agreed but I think there was some upper body contact and possibly his leg was brushed by a second defender at more or less the same time - but Sterling was looking for the decision.

I'd not be happy if one like that was given against Bolton but it went to VAR and they couldn't say it wasn't a penalty so I guess we just have to accept it.

Nice to see Skinner and Baddiel in the crowd - coming home and all that!

(PS - thanks to Keegan for the one above and BTID for the other England banners we've featured recently).

All in all, I've found the refereeing excellent during the tournament. Not sure League 1 refereeing next season will be anything to write home about.

Sterling was comfortably the best, most threatening player on the pitch and was body-checked and tripped for the penalty. England deserved their win. ITV coverage and Keane's comments were embarrassing.

Didn't think it was a pen but things very rarely go for us where luck is concerned so I won't be losing any sleep over it. We were easily the best team and deserved to win so well done lads.
Call me cynical but this is England we're talking about here, karma will almost certainly be restored in the form of losing on penalties in the final to Italy.

Important lesson for all leaders everywhere:-

It is possible to be effective whilst showing yourself to be a decent, honourable person devoid of lies, sneaky tricks and nastiness. Gareth deserves the plaudits. Now finish the job on Sunday!

I have a feeling that Italy will target Sterling from the start as the one whose speed and skill make things happen.

I didn't think so either, Boncey and I've never been keen on sports cheats.

But it is sometimes difficult to differentiate between those who are wilfully cheating and those who have genuinely been unfairly impeded. England did enough to win the match imo but I do sympathise with the Danes going out in that way.

I can see our young midfield having a tough time of it against the strongest and most experienced they’ve come up against and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Henderson make an appearance in the second half.

Beyond that, Sterling will need to keep his nose clean after all the attention he’s had since the Denmark game and we’ll need to find a way to feed Kane opportunities which Italy will no doubt work hard to prevent.

Pickford and Stones are my biggest fear because they’re both prone to making mistakes. Despite having looked decent so far, I flinch every time Pickford is called upon.

Cant say I’m confident which is probably just a historical thing but I don’t see any real reason why this squad can’t win it. Finger’s crossed!

Hoping that no one will boo the national anthems or those who choose to take the knee in support of much-needed equality. An Italian in the men's singles final at Wimbledon and I expect the majority of fans will be on his side against Djokovic but without disrespect. Let's show the world that Gareth's attitudes of decency and fairness are the right ones in both sporting contests today.

Dear me. I've just seen the likely team with 5 defenders and 2 holding midfielders.

Fook me, if ever there was a time to go for it, today is that day. We won't out-defend the Italians, they're masters at it. But of course, Gareth has got this far with defensive tactics so why change?

Winners go out and seize the day. We'll lose 1-0 or on pens.

Evans out.
