England took the lead early in the 2018 World Cup semi-final against Croatia, but were eventually eliminated in overtime, but they did not seem to give up the initiative at home, playing on the front foot, although they failed to threaten much Narooma.

England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was also not troubled, because Federico Chiesa (Federico Chiesa) simply missed the goal, while Ciro Immobile (Ciro Immobile) was blocked by Italy. Disjointed performance at halftime.

Pickford started to act after the 57th minute, blocking Lorenzo Insigne’s shot, and then began to pressure in Italy to take the ball from Chiesa when England returned one city.

After Pickford scored Andrea Bellotti’s header into the post, Bonucci raided from close range, which paid off.

A similar story happened in the first 15 minutes, although the England team did forcibly return to the game briefly in the second quarter, although neither side created anything to reward the noise of the crowd.

So it entered a penalty shootout, England’s young gunners failed, and Italy gained glory.

Since 1966, England has not won a major trophy.
