I remember reading somewhere (possibly a 'Shoot!' annual when I was a kid) that the Italian name for football (calcio) comes from an uncodified version of modern associated football that had been played there for at least as long as the uncodified version played in England prior to the rules being formalised... so there's an argument that football actually did go home (or at least went to stay at its holiday home on the Med for a while) last night!THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
"Football" decided to come home (to watch the match, as the song lyrics say) but after the penalty shoot-out, it decided to go back where it had come from.
I've also noticed a trend that the first team to miss, if that miss comes in the first or second penalties, quite often goes on to win.Pickford's saves got us to the penalty shootout, good keeper. His facial expressions when ranting at his defence are also hilarious.
There is a theory that the 4th penalty is the most vital not the 5th, there was that shootout awhile ago where Ronaldo was due to take the 5th but he never got the chance because they'd already lost. In the end it just comes down to who has the bottle.
