Italy were all over England from 25 mins on, yet couldn't hit a barn door with a shotgun. England 's defence were fairly good, but Italy's back four were terrible, so despite Italy being the far better side, it was always possible for England to steal a win despite being nowhere good enough.

With Italy missing every opportunity they had, for the first time in forever, I thought England might actually win a penalty shoot out!

Had England won, they would not have gone any further in the competition, but then again, I don't think Italy will either. England made them look better than they are by playing crap. Nothing new there then!

Yeah, neither of them would have stood a chance in the semis playing the way they did today.

Ugh yeah not a great euro match.

Cascadia was a good one, though.

Watching RBNYvDCU. CRAZY start... goal and a crossbar in the first two minutes.

Finally the Timbers go all in for a match. I had no idea Seattle were such divers but I guess the chant "They're flat, they're round, they flop across the ground Seattle Flounders" should have tipped me off.

Punity we're not out of the Open Cup yet, next match is tomorrow. Plus we have two more chances to get back at Portland, one of those being at home. We can still bag the Cascadia Cup again this year. We've just got to pull ourselves up and start winning, the defense needs to get their crap together, and getting Gspurning back would be nice too.

Just now? I know Seatrolls have a lot of new bandwagoners, but the Cascadia rivalries are definitely a bit older than just now.

I think he means since the MLS era. But yeah, Cascadia has been a three-way rivalry since 1975

Who knows what he means. Most Seattle fans don't remember (or don't know) that soccer existed anywhere before 2009.

The Cup itself is only 8 years old. The rivalries go back all the way. My grandpappy has an autographed 1975 Timbers team picture. Stretches across a decent bit of the attic wall. Soccer city!

Most people I know from here in Seattle watched the Sounders pre MLS.
