Maguire and Kane showed them the way to do it ....for what it’s worth I reckon Walker and Henderson would have just put there foot through it in the same fashion, we probably wouldn’t have seen any ridiculous run ups anyway :( the outcome couldn’t have been any worse:(
...... was brilliant. Wallop!! Top corner and smash the camera to bits for good measure. Now that's how you take a penalty.

Henderson has missed in a shootout before and in the warm up game where Sancho scored in his previous shootout for England. Rashford has successfully scored in a WC shootout and a last minute penalty in Paris to go through or go out of the CL. He always does that run up, hasn't stopped him before. Saka you can argue about but if he was one of the best in training and wanted it?

Walker taking a pen? No, thanks.

As regards penalties, I recall the 1990 WC shoot out against our nemesis West Germany and the commentator who made the point that you need to give these penalties to the chaps who are not too bright and don’t over think it. He followed up by saying he would definitely give a pen to Peter Beardsley who of course duly put it away.

The man whose nickname within the squad was "Ceefax" according to Bobby Robson.

Thoughts on this video of England fans supporting their team during the penalty shootout?

I feel like it would be viral by now if the circumstances were only slightly different:

Southgate's tactics were typical of a former centre back.Needs a good ex centre forward to advise when a more direct approach is needed.Although I don't know why he has to be so timid.Former World Cup winning defender Jack Charlton never had that problem with Ireland.
