My prediction for this evening's final:

Full-time:
England 2-2 Italy

Extra time:
England 2-3 Italy

Or possibly it'll stay 2-2 in extra time and then we'll lose on penalties.

Wish I could be optimistic, but... sigh. I'm so used to seeing us lose... decade... after decade... after decade. Uggh.

At least you got the score correctly, i was off by 3 goals as my prediction was 2-1 Italy.

You were only off by one goal the score was 1-1 it was decided in a penalty shootout. I don't think penalty shootout goals are considered goals.

Wtf 7 news is one of our big news networks and they just casually drop a massive dog whistle for something happening in another country.

You can tell these are the same anti mask, anti vaccine people that vote UKIP or BNP.

Andie Jones apparently works for real estate company Savills in Manchester.

His tweets have gone viral.

And... oh look. His employer is now aware.

'Oh fiddlesticks' - BBC reporter breaks Euro 2020 final score to fan

2 hours ago

An England supporter was reduced to tears after a BBC reporter broke the news of England's defeat in the Euro 2020 final to him.

James Ansell, from Nottingham, went to bed early on Sunday night and missed the match between England and Italy.

Mr Ansell said the TV in his houseboat had broken and his phone was not working properly.

The 76-year-old was on his way to buy a newspaper to find out the score when he was approached by the BBC's Navtej Johal.
