“It’s by no means a penalty. The very best group gained, England need to win. England was implausible, however for me it’s by no means a penalty.
“The very best group gained, England are a greater group than Denmark. Denmark performed the way in which I used to be anticipating them to play on to their limits.
“England was actually, actually good and little doubt they deserved to win that match.
“However, for me, it’s by no means a penalty. At this degree, a semi-final of a Euro I don’t perceive actually the referee’s choice.”
He continued: “And I don’t perceive even much less the truth that the VAR didn’t deliver the referee to the display or overturn the choice. For me it’s by no means a penalty.
“In order a soccer man I’m very glad England gained – don’t get me flawed – and I believe they need to win – don’t get me flawed.
“However as a soccer man, I’m disenchanted that penalty was given. I assumed England would win it.
“The Danish group was actually, actually drained in additional time. The gamers have been completely at their limits.
“England had a implausible bench to maneuver like they did. They may even transfer extra in the event that they wanted with the depth of their play and their dominance in extra-time.

He defined: “I believe it’s to win, the runners-up medal will not be a pleasant one. England at dwelling, you recognize, it’s a must to go to win it and if England doesn’t win it I believe will probably be a double frustration.
“It’s so shut – it’s nearly one match. The England gamers confirmed they may deal with a troublesome match, they may deal with the strain, they may cope being 1-Zero behind and having a really sturdy response.
“After that we didn’t see gamers hiding, we noticed each participant enjoying nicely. I didn’t see one single participant that didn’t play nicely or very nicely, all people was actually acting at a excessive degree.
“I believe they confirmed they’ll deal with it. Italy is, after all, a group very well-known by know the way and by pragmatism and by dealing with excessive strain conditions.
“Will probably be a giant, massive match prefer it was earlier than. Italy have much more potential than Denmark. I’m ready for a extremely, actually massive last.
“However I say it the way in which I see it and I don’t imagine the referee goes to sleep nicely!”
