On Wednesday the 7th, at Wembley, England beat Denmark 2-1 in the extension and advanced to the end of the Eurocup, in which he will face Italy. The creators of football got into an international final after 55 years of absence when they won their only national team title, the 1966 World Cup, in which they were also local.
On the British island it is all euphoria and expectation, although in the rest of the world there is only talk of the scandalous penalty that gave the English victory, a piletazo of Raheem Sterling that the Dutch referee Danny Makkelie bought and the VAR did not correct. Kane kicked and Schmeichel covered with such bad luck that the rebound fell to the right leg of the Tottenham striker.
With that goal, Kane reached 10 goals in the final stages of the World Cup and Euros, equaling a record of Gary Lineker, a football legend from that country who remains current in the environment thanks to his work on TV and his opinion on networks . Recently, for example, it became viral how Lineker celebrated with other ex-footballers the triumph of England against Germany, their black beast for decades.
Always present in Twitter, Lineker was expected to say something about the controversial penalty play, and eventually he did. However, from his sayings, it seems that the former Barcelona could not put aside his heart to make his analysis.
“I don’t understand why all the fuss, it could have been two penalties …” Gary chicaneled, showing the video of Sterling’s dip.
“The answers are beautiful, I love the level of bitterness,” he shot later, before the comment of a follower who came out at the crossroads saying that just as if “the 1966 World Cup does not count, neither will this Eurocup, if they win it “. This last reference has to do with that final of the phantom goal, one of the biggest controversies in football history, which also took place at Wembley and favored the Three Lions.
Gary didn’t seem to care too much about the shapes, or did he. Because after his two mischievous comments, he left the controversies on the sidelines and defended the final result due to the performance that England showed throughout the game.
It was when he coincided with another follower who remarked that England had 22 shots on target against 6 from Denmark. “It is true, and after suffering so many years with horrible decisions from the referees, England had a bit of luck a long time ago,” he said.
The final between England and Italy will be played on Sunday the 11th at 4:00 p.m. in Wembley, with 70,000 fans cheering for their team and the football planet asking for one thing, that VAR does not again be the protagonist of the match.
