Veteran all-rounder Ben Stokes recently said that England’s defeat is not limited to this Euro Cup, which has a long way to go. Italy shattered the dream of England. Italy beat England 3-2 on penalties after 90 minutes of play. “I hope they are not defined by this. You see where they have been in the last two or three years and they have managed to get things done and you know it is just such a young team,” Stokes said.
“He has so much time to go out and win trophies for England. He is blessed with youngsters. The England team has never been so exciting to watch. I am largely in my football like other boys No, but whenever he has taken the field, I have totally watched,” Stokes said.
“You know they will be devastated. They will probably be injured for a few more weeks. But I am sure once they recover from this and understand what they are capable of achieving, there will be many more to come for them. There will be big opportunities. Guys, there is no doubt about it,” he said.
Since 1966, this is the first time that England managed to reach the final. Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka all missed goals in the penalty session, following which they were abused on social media platforms.
“They will be absolutely devastated, no doubt about it. But what they have managed to achieve is incredible. What they have done on the field has completely taken over the country. Obviously everyone in the country One would love to see England win, but only Stokes said, “Watching the games you feel a real connection with the team. Gareth Southgate has led the way, the way Gareth Southgate speaks. I think he’s phenomenal in everything he’s done.”
“We as a national team, in a different sport, we are incredibly proud of what they managed to do. This is such a young team full of talent that the sky is the limit for them. There are many more years to come. “So many tournaments to go to and prove themselves. But in my eyes and in the eyes of everyone in this changing room, he is already a complete legend.”
