    Oh really - ok well I say VAR and the Ref say it all as well as the video. But hey who gives a **** because Denmark parked the bus for at least 30 mins and were hanging on for dear life.

    You won't see it from that angle (it's the same angle they use to show "faked" punches in movies) you have to see it from directly behind or in front of Sterling. There is contact and even minimal contact can make you trip, so it is a clear penalty.

    I'd say it's a weak pen but small contact and seen them given for much less. Worthy winners in the end in my opinion. Must step it up against Italy though.

    It does and he had contact to the hip from the other side, if you watch the angle from behind it is clearer, the side on angle isn't as obvious.

    Absolutely never a pen. Anyone saying it's a pen must be English and must ask themselves if that was giving against them if they'd be happy. IMO the replies make it even worse, the behind angle shows how little contact is even made an absolute joke.

    You do realise that video you included shows there was NO contact? Clearly shows Sterling on his way down already, when he brushes against the leg. Blatant dive.

    Haven't seen the other angles that have been mentioned.

    then look at this angle too - contact from both, first bit to the side of his leg from a knee at 2 seconds in.



    And this guy's uploaded two photos:

    Gonna be a long night for the blue light brigade, haven't heard this many sirens at night since the height of the pandemic!

    Went for a quick bike ride and the scenes would make you think we've won the whole lot! Drunks climbing scaffolds, a couple of busses smashed up, a group of lads fighting, we're going to need the army if we actually win the bloody thing :D

    This sums it up well. England the better team, especially towards the end and within extra time, but never a pen.

    Precisely, you can clearly see the contact from Maehle's right knee on to the side of Sterling's right knee. Not a dive at all just a clear penalty - no matter what Mourinho says.

    There's obviously contact and that's not a great location to be doing that so downright weird to be vehemently calling it not a penalty.

    Probably just people hearing someone they like saying it so decided to take that favoured opinion and run with it.

    If that penalty is given against you you're furious. I don't think it was a pen, having seen the replay multiple times.

    Football is a contact sport and not all contact is a foul. I think it's quite likely Sterling could easily have stayed on his feet, despite the minimal contact.

    Football is not a contact sport! The person that first coined that that specious line needs to be covered in custard pie!

    Boxing is a contact sport, wrestling is a contact sport, judo is a contact sport... need I go on? Football is a sport in which contact can be made BUT if that contact, no matter how minimal, causes a player to trip and fall then that is deemed a foul. It's as simple as that.

    As the video abundantly demonstrates this was a foul and because it was in the box it is a penalty.

    Football is a contact sport.

    Non-contact sport is stuff like tennis, where the players have no means of touching each other.

    Yes, football it is a contact sport but not a FULL contact sport. I think that's where your getting confused.

    Get in England, in a final, didn't think i'd see that in my lifetime lololol.

    This.

    All this petty and bitter bickering from some about the penalty is nauseating. I’m pretty sure we were gonna score anyway. Denmark looked absolutely done.
