The poor lads who missed penalties for England last night have been subjected to all sorts of wholly undeserved abuse. I wonder how many of those handing out the abuse have ever taken a penalty. It is not that easy. And to do so in front of 60,000 spectators knowing it really matters must bring unbelievable pressure. Those who did not score must be feeling terrible and – as human beings – should have our sympathy, not be attacked.
