It was not until the 67th minute where England failure to clear their defence made Italy to equalize through Leonardo Bonucci. The match went on and finished with 1-1 draw after the extra time. This made them to proceed to the penalty shootout where Italy won 3-2.

Rashford and Sancho both failed to score in the penalty shootout which made many people to react. Premier league legend blasted on Gareth Southgate for benching them until the 118th minute where he brought them in and expect the to score the penalty.

Alan Shearer suggested that it would be very hard for one to score a penalty if he had only been in the field for a few minutes. During an interview, below is all he told the media,

"It's a big task to put two players(Rashford & Sancho) on with a few minutes to go and ask them to take penalties. Its a big pressure when they not kicked the ball. It's a big task. Mentally you have to get yourself right. You've not kicked the ball for a few hours."
