The game has gotten off to an amazing start for the hosts so far. While fans questioned the omission of young star Bakayo Saka from the lineup, the English have been dominant as they have kept possession and are creating chances on a regular basis.

This initial pressure has worked wonders for Gareth Southgate so far. In the very second minute against the Azzurri, Harry Kane dropped deep and passed the ball to wing back Kieran Trippier.

While the English flocked in Italy’s penalty box, Trippier patiently waited and gave a fantastic cross. While it seemed like the Atletico Madrid defender had missed everyone on the box, a rushing in Luke Shaw found the ball and hit it first time.

Although the hit was from a very tight angle, Shaw laced the shot and had incredible pace giving no chance for Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma to save the ball. With England up 1-0 and looking in cruise control, Roberto Mancini has to figure out a way to crack Kane and Co.

So far, England have clearly been the superior team. The five men system has certainly delivered for Southgate with Trippier and Shaw giving Italy some problems. Given how in-control they are looking and Wembley absolutely erupting, is it finally coming home?

English fans go crazy with Shaw’s goal

The English are back in a major tournament finals in a very long time. Given how long they have waited for a silverware, England fans are understandably rooting for their team to succeed.

After Shaw’s latest goal in the Euro 2020 Finals, fans all across the nation went berserk. From loud cheers to wild celebrations, English fans were elated to see their team open up the scoring.
