England Star Raheem Sterling has now been accused of diving to win a penalty in the Euro 2020 Semi-final match against Denmark, MySportDab reports.
The Three Lions of England defeated Denmark 2-1 in extra-time on Wednesday night, but there is controversy.
With the game 1-1 in extra time, England were awarded a shocking penalty after Raheem Sterling was claimed to be fouled by Joakim Maehle.
Harry Kane’s penalty was first saved but he managed to score the rebound.
Football fans have now been accusing England Star Sterling of diving to win the penalty.
One fan said: ‘This is never a penalty but England are always lucky for once.’
Another fan said: ‘When English pundits are laughing at a poor penalty decision, you know it’s very bad.’
Pundit Roy Keane said: ‘I doubt it was a penalty. We have looked at it but Sterling got stronger as the game continued, But I think very soft.’
Gary Neville said: ‘If we are to be fair, anyone would be devastated to lose to a penalty like that, it’s too soft.’
An Italian football fan held a poster which read: ‘It’s coming home but not in yours’.
Many Italian fans feel England’s penalty was soft in the semi-final against Denmark.
With the win against Denmark, Gareth Southgate’s team have reached their first major tournament final since the 1966 World Cup.
England had done well not to concede a single goal to reach the semi-final, but they went behind on the 30-minute mark as 21-year-old Denmark star Mikkel Damsgaard scored a stunning free-kick.
The Three Lions searched for an equaliser, and they got their rewards nine minutes later as Simon Kjaer scored an own goal.
