Penalty

July 11th 2021

Today could have been different. It could have been a great day. Potentially the best day. It was England vs Italy in the final of the Euros. England lost on penalties. Italy missed two. We missed three. It could have been amazing. It could have come home. It didn’t.

We didn’t deserve to win the game. But we also didn’t win the game. Maybe that’s fate. Maybe that’s whatever. But it could have been so different. I could have been bouncing off the walls right now.

When Shaw scored I ended up in the arms of some random pubman who ten minutes earlier asked if I was Italian. I’m not. I wasn’t.

When Pickford saved Jorginho’s penalty I jumped around the room and could have cried. When Saka missed I also could have cried. Some people did.

😦

That’s all. Just a 😦

Until tomorrow, 😦
