Euros 2021: Semi-final: The Penalty

The match progressed, with great persistence from both sides, but the commentators kept saying that a goal would come, the pressure was coming from England… all the things that wind me up horribly! Curse of the commentator and all that.

So full time comes and extra time commences, just adding to the torment … I am praying that it doesn’t go to penalties, and then a penalty is awarded!

Kieran Trippier can’t look, which was a surprise, but he wasn’t alone! Leicester City fans know the abilities of the Danish goalkeeper, Kasper Schmeichel who is very likely to save it.

Bless him, Kasper gets there, no less than I expected, but on the rebound, Harry blasts it home – Kasper reacts immediately – and is actually there – but the shot is too strong to resist.

England 2-1 up and with a place in the final on Sunday – today! I can’t believe it!

Immense and outstanding, from both teams, who played their hearts out.

Wow!

Fantastic Foxes!

What a match, what a goal, what a save, (or two!) what an offside, what a day… Incredible! These are the first images – more to follow certainly. First, a letter to my dear uncle, in Australia, now approaching his 93rd birthday in June and a lifelong fan of the Foxes – This is special indeed! Thanks Lads you are terrific!
