    Thanks for that. It was, as they say, a composed finish. If he's gonna be called up it's good if he gets to really contribute. Happy for him.

    May everyone on this board be as happy as Saka is on an inflatable unicorn.

    Assuming he missed the Ukraine match because he was saving the world.

    I think he should start in tomorrow's semifinal against Denmark, based on this meme alone!

    He's got a knock, so I hope he sits tomorrow and for the third place game.

    He's been back in training for a day or two now, so I heard. Some very decent England pundits like Chris Waddle are calling for him to start.

    Thrown under the bus today and now being blamed online for the penalty loss all because Southgate has no idea what he is doing.

    2 cold players on for penalties both shit the bed, and it falls to a 19 year old not known for taking penalties to save it for England.

    If this ruins Saka mentally, its completely on Southgate. Lil Chilli was absolutely distraught post match.

    He’d never taken a top level penalty before. Regardless of how he looked in practice, having a 19 year old take his first penalty in the shootout of a final, to keep the game alive no less, is managerial malpractice.

    Add in that he brought in Rashford and Sancho on a set piece, and he had to play RB.

    Southgate is a worse manager than Arteta has been. People keep pointing to how England went in the WC and how they went in the Euros, but they have some once in a generation attacking talent, elite players in every line, and any other manager would have achieved as much as he did.
