It’s not. England faced Italy in the Euro final on Sunday night at Wembley Stadium in London and lost in a penalty shootout under pressure. As Italian fans danced and celebrated, English fans including Prince William, his wife Catherine and son George, who were in attendance, had to start dreaming again.
English fans hoped the victory would ‘come home’, picking up the chorus of the England tribute song Three Lions (It’s Coming Home), by English comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner and the band The Lightning Seeds, who marked the welcome of England. of the euro 1996.
He arrives in Rome
But instead of coming home, the victory comes to Rome, as Italian fans were quick to note on social media. Even the Italian player Leonardo Bonucci got involved in the “come to Rome” taunt.
The loss means England will continue for at least some time in their pop culture role as the eternal underdog, one of the world’s most cursed programs, apparently. And don’t think non-fans haven’t reminded them.
“Honestly, the best part of Italy’s victory was this picture of the royals looking sad,” Kristin Chirico tweeted.
Mario and the pizza
Two Italian fans caught viewers’ attention with their costumes: she is dressed up as a slice of pizza, while he is SuperMario. They were probably happy after the shots on goal, but cameras caught them at an uncertain moment that many people rushed to caption and joke.
“You’re always going to dress up as a pizza, aren’t you?” one Twitter user joked. ” What do you mean ? We talked about it weeks ago!
Another said: “Italy has had all its momentum since they showed Pizza Girl and Super Mario Boyfriend. “
Many viewers were entertained by the reactions of young Prince George, mainly to the England goal and then later to the team’s loss. The future King of England, who is only 7 now, may want to get used to disappointing English matches.
“Prince George might be every English football fan right now -om the sheer ecstasy of Luke Shaw’s goal to the heartbreak to see Rashford, Sancho and Saka miss penalties! Wrote a Twitter user. “Football will come home, not today but someday! Congratulations to Italy. “
For English fans, there is always the next World Cup, which will be held in Qatar in the fall of 2022 to avoid the intense heat in this country in the Middle East.
