Euro 2020 final: England defeat incredibly painful, says Gareth Southgate
England manager Gareth Southgate says he will not be able to watch the Euro 2020 final after his side’s semi-final win over Croatia.
The euros soccer 2021 is the final of Euro 2020. England defeated incredibly painful, according to Gareth Southgate.
‘Nobody is on their own,’ Southgate says following a penalty shootout loss.
The loss by Italy in the Euro 2020 final was “very sad,” but manager Gareth Southgate claimed his players did “all they possibly could.”
“We’re all in this together. They’ve left the nation with some incredible memories “On One, Southgate said.
Losing would “hurt for the rest of our lives,” according to Captain Harry Kane.
“As a squad, we should be very pleased of what we’ve accomplished,” the Tottenham striker said.
“I couldn’t have done anything more, and the guys couldn’t have done anything more.”
“When you lose, penalties are the worst feeling in the world.” Even if it wasn’t our night, it was a great competition, and we should be proud of ourselves.
“It’ll sting for a time, but we’re on the right road, we’re improving, and maybe we’ll be able to improve next year.”
‘The players should be very proud of themselves.’
England won their group and then defeated Germany, Ukraine, and Denmark in the elimination round to reach their first men’s European Championship final.
Luke Shaw scored in the second minute to give them a dream start to the Wembley finale, but Leonardo Bonucci equalized in the second half.
It was the game’s only two goals, and Italy won 3-2 on penalties when Marcus Rashford’s shot hit the post, and Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka’s attempts were saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma.
“Of course, tonight is going to be very tough for all of us,” Southgate added. You must be disappointed since chances to earn prizes like this are very uncommon in your life.
“However, when they think back on what they’ve accomplished, they should be very proud of themselves.”
“The players have performed well. They’ve done all they could to help.
“They’ve been a total pleasure to deal with, and they’ve gone above and beyond what we’ve done in the past. However, in that dressing room, it is very uncomfortable.”
The Duke of Cambridge, who is the president of the Football Association, had visited the England players after the game, according to Southgate.
“I simply stated there would be no repercussions. I was the one who demanded the punishment “Added he.
“They have accomplished more in nearly 50 years than any previous England squad.”
‘Games are won by razor-thin margins.’
Due to an ankle injury, defender Harry Maguire missed the first two games, but was a key member of a backline that allowed just two goals throughout the tournament, none of which came from open play.
“It’s hard to find any positives at the time,” the Manchester United captain told Sport. We’re devastated. We’re all heartbroken. The guys gave it their all and emptied our tanks on the field.
“It was a back-and-forth fight; we had the first half, they had the second, and extra time might have gone any way.” On penalties, it wasn’t our night. The ball bounced for them, and the tiny margins went for them. We’ve been let down.
“Against Denmark, we surrendered a miracle shot from a free-kick and a set-play that ricocheted three or four times and landed to them.”
“Games are won or lost on razor-thin margins, and today it was with them, not us.”
