Giorgio Chiellini, just before Saka missed the decisive penalty

that gave us the victory, he shouted the word out loud “Kiricocho“.

Kirichocho

(Giorgio Chiellini)

If that’s what it takes for you to win
Then I forgive you
You and your pagan curses
But I won’t forget
I won’t forget your loathsome deeds
Nor you’re disgraceful diatribe
I think you must always have been this way
A twin battling for attention
You celebrate your ways
They give you pleasure
They make you happy
Anything goes for you to get your own way
A Spoilt, aggressive cheat
Anything to be a winner
But win what?
Your deeds tarnish your victories
So go away slope off
All I will remember about you
Is your sickening behaviour
If that makes you happy
Then I forgive you
But I won’t forget
If that’s what it takes for you to win
Then you are a winner

Mourinho brought attention to Chiellini’s foul on Saka towards the end of regulation time, explaining why it was instrumental in Italy’s victory.

“What Chiellini did with Saka shows everything. He made his only mistake of the game, he lost the turn on the touchline. Saka was going: ‘You are not going, you stay with me, the shirt is mine and you are not going,’

No Escape

I guess my shine has worn off
It always does
It never takes long
I’m not gold
Not solid gold
I’m not even silver
Once people really see through me
It’s always the same
I carry a sadness that can infect others
I have a melancholy madness that exasperates
I know me better than I think I do
It’s far wiser to isolate
Stay away, keep your distance
For me I cannot ever escape myself

England produced a stunning performance in Rome and emerged 4-0 winners over Ukraine to set up a semi-final at Wembley against Denmark on Wednesday.

Harry Kane opened the scoring after only four minutes with a clinical finish following great work from Raheem Sterling, England’s standout player at the tournament.

Ukraine came back into it as the first half wore on but any fears were allayed almost immediately after the break when Harry Maguire powerfully headed home Luke Shaw’s exquisite free-kick.

Harry Kane added his second and England’s third five minutes after the break following some clever interplay between Mason Mount and Sterling. The ball eventually came to Shaw and his pinpoint cross was headed home by Kane.

England added a fourth when Jordan Henderson scored his first England goal after more than a decade of trying. He met Mason Mount’s corner and directed the ball across the keeper and into the net.

The few England fans inside the Stadio Olimpico were in a party mood for the bulk of the second half as their side has its best chance in living memory of winning a major trophy.
