English fans are still to come to terms with the fact that they lost the Euro2020 final to Italian opponents on Sunday, July 11 at Wembley stadium and they are signing petitions for the match to be replayed.

England lost on penalties after a 1-1 draw at both full time and  extra time. Some fans have decried the match as unfair with an image of Giorgio Chiellini’s now infamous foul on Saka – which the Italian defender was booked for – used to highlight this apparent unfairness.

They have now launched a change.org petition to ask that the match be replayed, adding that there were “pushes, pulls and kicks” from the victorious Italians, who – it is said – should have had “a red card for their gameplay” with the match replayed with a “non-biased” referee, presumably to give England a better chance of winning.

Over 100,000 people had signed the petition.
