This morning England reached their first major final in 55 years, and Euro Scope was loving it.
It did not come without controversy though, as VAR reared its ugly head in the first period of extra time as the ever-threatening Raheem Sterling went down after the slightest glance from Joakim Maehle in the penalty area.
But let’s go back to the start.
What a game.
England conceded their first goal of the tournament with the silkiest of free kicks from 19 yr old winger Mikkel Damsgaard.
If you missed it go back and watch the highlights – you’re in for a treat.
Only minutes later England tied it all up after the skipper from Denmark Kjaer netted an own goal with that man again Raheem Sterling breathing down his neck.
Both sides had their chances in the 2nd half with England mounting immense pressure with the assistance of the home crowd at Wembley.
Then 11 minutes in to extra time, Sterling goes down with the referee immediately pointing to the spot. VAR confirmed the decision after an agonising amount of time for the country I once called home.
This time it was the skipper for England who netted home the goal for the dub after another amazing initial save from Kasper Schmeichel, before Harry pounced on the deflection.
I was lucky enough to live in Leeds whilst playing in the Super League in 2018, for the World Cup.
I watched every game live and rode ever goal home at the pub with the locals before their exit against Croatia in the Semis that year.
The atmosphere and energy across the whole country is like nothing you could ever imagine.
Never thought I would say this, especially after having a strong rivalry and banter with my old pommy teammates, but….
Its fuckin coming home lads!!
