“It’s by no means a penalty. The perfect workforce gained, England should win. England was improbable, however for me it’s by no means a penalty.
“The perfect workforce gained, England are a greater workforce than Denmark. Denmark performed the best way 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 stage, a semi-final of a Euro I don’t perceive actually the referee’s determination.”
He continued: “And I don’t perceive even much less the truth that the VAR didn’t carry 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 mistaken – and I feel they should win – don’t get me mistaken.
“However as a soccer man, I’m upset that penalty was given. I believed England would win it.
“The Danish workforce was actually, actually drained in further time. The gamers had been completely at their limits.
“England had a improbable bench to maneuver like they did. They might even transfer extra in the event that they wanted with the depth of their play and their dominance in extra-time.

“It’s so shut – it’s nearly one match. The England gamers confirmed they might address a troublesome match, they might address the stress, they might cope being 1-Zero behind and having a really sturdy response.
“After that we didn’t see gamers hiding, we noticed each participant taking part in effectively. I didn’t see one single participant that didn’t play effectively or very effectively, all people was actually acting at a excessive stage.
“I feel they confirmed they will address it. Italy is, after all, a workforce very well-known by understand how and by pragmatism and by dealing with excessive stress conditions.
“It is going to be a giant, huge match prefer it was earlier than. Italy have much more potential than Denmark. I’m ready for a extremely, actually huge remaining.
