Italy are European champions. Jimbo, Carl Anka, James Horncastle, Raphael Honigstein, David Preece and Daniel Storey review a wonderful night for the Azzurri but a heart-breaking night for England who lose on penalties at Wembley. Gareth Southgate’s side take a very early lead but are pegged back and worn down by their opponent. Like the 2018 World Cup semi-final but worse. It’s an inspirational group of players but in hindsight, did England throw this Euros away? And did they play that much football in the tournament? As for Italy, we salute a team that every other team made changes to their system for. And of course, they had the amazing Chiellini. The star of this Italy team and finally a European champion. RUNNING ORDER:    • PART 1: Carl Anka at Wembley (02m 00s) • PART 2: What went wrong for England?

For the penultimate pod of the Euros, Jimbo is joined by a bumper crew of James Horncastle, Michael Cox, Tom Williams and Duncan Alexander. Anticipation builds ahead of the final at Wembley on Sunday. Italy the complete team, managed by Mancini the serial winner. Whereas England look to be physically fresher. Are both teams already heroes and in a no-lose situation? We reminisce about a tournament including lots of goals, classic matches and most importantly, fans. And 15 years on from Italy’s last major tournament win, a chat about Zidane’s headbutt on Materazzi, much like the incident itself, gets out of hand.

Jimbo, Daniel Storey and Duncan Alexander bask in the glory of England reaching their first ever European Championship final. The Three Lions come from behind at Wembley to overcome Denmark and progress to the Euro 2020 final. England - masters of keep-ball, shaking off their demons and of shielding the ball and waiting for a free-kick. We salute the likes of Walker, Rice and Maguire. England will face Italy in the final who eliminated Spain on Tuesday. Alvaro Romeo informs us on how La Roja’s performance has been received and the extent of Barcelona’s struggles with their wage bill. Plus semi-final despair from 2014. And Emi Martinez’s sensational year.

Jimbo is joined by James Horncastle, Adam Crafton and Daniel Storey as the Azzurri ascend to the final of Euro 2020. It took penalties and a little bit of luck but Italy beat Spain at Wembley and continue to give great value to this tournament. Meanwhile, the future looks bright for Spain with Pedri running the show. But should they have got rid of Ramos? England and Denmark compete on Wednesday to see who will face Italy in the final. Niels Harild tells us how the spirit of 92 is more of a positive than the curse of 66. And how does this group of England players compare to previous crops? Plus Southgate and Sir Bobby – two of a kind?

Jimbo, Daniel Storey, Carl Anka and Sasha Goryunov react to a fantastic night for the Three Lions in Rome. England cruise past Ukraine 4-0 and into the last 4 of Euro 2020. A performance that was everything we wanted it to be – ruthlessly efficient and an absence of jeopardy. We salute Southgate, Shaw and the Sterling Kane partnership. They will meet Denmark in the semi-finals at Wembley after the Danes dispatch the Czechs thanks to Joakim Maehle’s caramelo. But are they a bit overrated? Plus we revisit the greatest upset in Euros history – Greece going all the way in 2004.

Jimbo is alongside Duncan Alexander, Charlie Eccleshare and James Horncastle as Italy & Spain set up a semi-final meeting at Euro 2020. Roberto Mancini’s Italy knock out the number 1 ranked team in the world in Belgium, in a performance that has everything. How have the Azzurri managed to put together this 32-game unbeaten run? And why wasn’t Mancini more in demand? Spain are victorious on penalties against 10-man Switzerland but are hugely wasteful in front of goal again. Alvaro Romeo tells us why the Spanish might be about to click, through unity and conviction. But do they lack personality? In Saturday’s quarter-finals, it’s Czech Republic v Denmark and then, England v Ukraine in Rome. Yevhen Muzyka tells us why Shevchenko isn’t as popular as you might think. Plus we talk Sancho, Nuno and Rafa Benitez, all on the move in club football. RUNNING ORDER:    • PART 1: Belgium 1-2 Italy (03m 30s) • PART 2: Spain beat the Swiss on spot-kicks with Alvaro Romeo (20m 30s) • PART 3a: England v Ukraine preview with Yevhen Muzyka (35m 00s) • PART 3b: Czech Republic v Denmark preview (46m 00s) • PART 4: The odds with Paddy Power (49m 30s) • PART 5: Sancho, Nuno and Benitez all on the move (52m 00s) SIGN UP TO THE ATHLETIC FOR £1 A MONTH FOR YOUR FIRST 6 MONTHS: • theathletic.com/totally   GET IN TOUCH: • follow us on Instagram • find us on Facebook • send us a tweet: @TheTotallyShow   PARISH NOTICES: • we’re sponsored by Paddy Power - home of the Money Back Special   READ STUFF ON OUR WEBSITE: • check out thetotallyfootballshow.com.

Jimbo welcomes Adam Crafton, Raphael Honigstein and Daniel Storey to look back on a momentous day of action as the quarter-finalists at Euro 2020 are finalised. England secure a landmark victory over Germany at Wembley where all of Southgate’s decisions came off. And his squad selection and team selections appear to be vindicated. Is it judgement or luck? Plus how the nation reacts when the hugely endearing Southgate wins. Jogi Low has now managed his last game for Germany, who pay the price for having a halfway house attitude towards their football. England’s opponents in the last 8 will be Ukraine after a game of faffing against Sweden. Julien Laurens joins us for a post-mortem on France’s shock exit from Euro 2020. Plus Bierhoff and here’s to you Mrs Rabiot.

Jimbo, Carl Anka and Daniel Storey try and make sense of quite possibly the greatest day of tournament football ever. Switzerland knock out world champions France on penalties after a 3-3 draw in Bucharest. We try to explain the magnificence of Xhaka and Pogba. And would France have fared better with Laporte? Speaking of Laporte, his Spanish side beat Croatia 5-3 after extra time. How to explain a free-scoring team with a struggling striker? England and Germany face off at Wembley on Tuesday. Raphael Honigstein tells us why he’s worried about German improv up against a heavily rehearsed England. Plus Sweden Ukraine, Dutch despair from 2000 and attempting to explain the own goal epidemic. RUNNING ORDER:    • PART 1: Switzerland knock out France on penalties (04m 30s) • PART 2: Croatia 3-5 Spain (19m 00s) • PART 3a: England v Germany preview with Raphael Honigstein (31m 30s) • PART 3b: Sweden v Ukraine preview (47m 00s) • PART 4: The odds with Paddy Power (51m 30s) • PART 5: On This Day – Toldo and Totti torment the Dutch (54m 00s) SIGN UP TO THE ATHLETIC FOR £1 A MONTH FOR YOUR FIRST 6 MONTHS: • theathletic.com/totally   GET IN TOUCH: • follow us on Instagram • find us on Facebook • send us a tweet: @TheTotallyShow   PARISH NOTICES: • we’re sponsored by Paddy Power - home of the Money Back Special   READ STUFF ON OUR WEBSITE: • check out thetotallyfootballshow.com.

Jimbo welcomes Michael Cox and Duncan Alexander into the pod after a day of illuminating action at the Euros. Czech Republic hog the headlines by eliminating the Netherlands in the first shock of the last 16. But are they still the weakest team in the competition? And can Frank De Boer be blamed for the crazy mistakes of his players? Number 1 ranked Belgium knock out holders Portugal, in a game signposted by selfishness and stroppiness. And it’s time to bust the myth that Ronaldo is good at free-kicks. It’s another big day of action. Juraj Vrdoljak tells us whether Croatia fear Spain, the team that inflicted their heaviest defeat ever. And Julien Laurens previews France v Switzerland, as Pogba looks to build on his position as perhaps the player of the tournament so far. Plus we appreciate Balotelli, Cassano and Prandelli 9 years on. RUNNING ORDER:    • PART 1: Netherlands 0-2 Czech Republic with Karel Haring (03m 30s) • PART 2: Belgium 1-0 Portugal (16m 30s) • PART 3a: Croatia v Spain preview with Juraj Vrdoljak (29m 00s) • PART 3b: France v Switzerland preview with Julien Laurens (34m 00s) • PART 4: The odds with Paddy Power (46m 45s) • PART 5: On This Day – Super Mario Balotelli in 2012 (49m 00s) SIGN UP TO THE ATHLETIC FOR £1 A MONTH FOR YOUR FIRST 6 MONTHS: • theathletic.com/totally   GET IN TOUCH: • follow us on Instagram • find us on Facebook • send us a tweet: @TheTotallyShow   PARISH NOTICES: • we’re sponsored by Paddy Power - home of the Money Back Special   READ STUFF ON OUR WEBSITE: • check out thetotallyfootballshow.com.

Jimbo’s back and he’s brought Sasha Goryunov and Tom Williams with him as the knockout stages of Euro 2020 get underway. Denmark dismantle Wales 4-0 in Amsterdam as their fairy-tale continues to the quarter-finals. Niels Harild tells us why the Danes are daring to dream of a repeat of 1992. What will Gareth Bale do next? International football only? Golf? Italy need extra time to eliminate Austria at Wembley, with the beaten side showing just how good they are. Having seen glimpses of Belgium at their best, will we be able to see a classic with Portugal on the worst pitch at the tournament in Seville? And with no side showing themselves to be completely dominant, Michiel Jongsma fancies the Netherlands to go to the semi-finals as pessimism is replaced by arrogance. Plus England 1-2 Iceland – five years on. RUNNING ORDER:    • PART 1: Wales 0-4 Denmark with Niels Harild (03m 30s) • PART 2: Italy 2-1 Austria (19m 30s) • PART 3a: Belgium v Portugal preview (28m 30s) • PART 3b: Netherlands v Czech Republic preview with Michiel Jongsma  (34m 00s) • PART 4: The odds with Paddy Power (43m 30s) • PART 5: On This Day – England 1-2 Iceland (47m 00s) SIGN UP TO THE ATHLETIC FOR £1 A MONTH FOR YOUR FIRST 6 MONTHS: • theathletic.com/totally   GET IN TOUCH: • follow us on Instagram • find us on Facebook • send us a tweet: @TheTotallyShow   PARISH NOTICES: • we’re sponsored by Paddy Power - home of the Money Back Special   READ STUFF ON OUR WEBSITE: • check out thetotallyfootballshow.com.

Matt Davies Adams, Daniel Storey and Adam Crafton are here on the day of goals and destiny in the Euros. In Group F, F stood for fun as each team at some stage were bottom of the table or facing England in the next round. In Group E, we weren't expecting too much but Spain came to have a fiesta, with a hand from Martin Dubravka, whilst Sweden and Poland put on a five goal thriller. So have Spain finally arrived? And now all eyes turn to the Round of 16 which kicks off on Saturday with Wales v Denmark with the former left asking "are we the badies?" And we try to work out if there's any way past Italy for Austria. All that plus a dive into UEFA's "politics", some Euro 2004 action, and our updated predictions.

Matt Davies Adams, Tom Williams, and Daniel Storey are here as England top Group D and as Scotland bid farewell to their first tournament in 23 years. So Scotland are out but what does it mean? We ask The Athletic's Jordan Campbell who's live at Hampden for his reflections on a heartbreaking night for the Tartan Army. More positive scenes over at Wembley though, well for 12 minutes anyway, as Sterling netted again and England top the group and look at facing, erm, France/Germany/Portugal/Hungary! Speaking of which tomorrow is today and today is the last day of the group stages, and there are still two groups to sort out. Namely Group E and F where it's looking concerning for Spain and rather brighter for Germany. All that plus we hit a few bum notes.

Matt Davies Adams, Rory Smith, and Sasha Goryunov are here as Denmark make their mark on this tournament and squeeze into the next stage whilst Austria find their fast flowing football. Copenhagen was the place to be on Monday night as Denmark scored four magnificent goals to set up their place in the round of 16. Whilst Finland gave Belgium a run for their money before Lukaku turned the fireworks on. Plus we had one of the most memorable moments of the tournament so far - and VAR was involved in a positive way! In Group C it's Ukraine who are left wondering if they're in or out, and we waved goodbye to tournament cult hero Goran Pandev with an emotional guard of honour. Up next it's England v Czech Republic and Croatia v Scotland where it's "you finish second" "no, you finish second" at Wembley and win at all costs in Hampden. And where Covid 19 is wreaking havoc with protocols as Billy Gilmour is out and it's a bit of a confusion over Mount and Chilwell for England. All that plus there's a rather special 'On This Day' for Matt - and we find out that his dog has a middle name.... RUNNING ORDER PART 1: Drama or no drama?

Matt Davies-Adams welcomes Duncan Alexander and Robyn Cowen into the pod as Wales progress to the knockout stages. Robert Page’s side lose 1-0 in Rome but are still safely in the last 16. Are good-looking lads Italy the new tournament favourites? Are Turkey the worst dark horses ever? Groups B and C will conclude on Monday. Ari Virtanen dares to dream of Finland upsetting Belgium and advancing to the next round. It’s a chance for the likes of Lukaku, Yarmolenko and Dumfries to boost their Golden Boot hopes. And a chance to say goodbye Goran Pandev. Plus some Arshavin on this day and what Torquay and Hartlepool did to steal the show on Sunday.

Matt Davies-Adams is joined by Lynsey Hooper and Tom Williams after arguably the most exciting day of action yet at Euro 2020. Germany bounce back from defeat to France with a 4-1 thrashing of Portugal. Never write them off. Are the holders in danger of elimination at the group stage? Hungary cause their own upset by holding world champions France in Budapest. Should Les Bleus be concerned about the lack of goals from Karim Benzema? Speaking of a lack of goals, Spain toil to another draw, this time with Poland. Alvaro Romeo identifies the reasons behind their struggles. From the weather to fan apathy. Group A concludes on Sunday with Wales travelling to Rome to face Italy and confirm their place in the next round. Will the likes of Ramsey, Bale and Ward impress again? Plus Seaman’s laugh, Foden’s flick, and Sousa’s fashion faux-pas.  RUNNING ORDER:    • PART 1a: Germany 4-1 Portugal with David Novo (03m 00s) • PART 1b: Hungary 1-1 France (15m 00s) • PART 2: Spain 1-1 Poland with Alvaro Romeo (24m 00s) • PART 3: Previewing the conclusion of Group A (34m 00s) • PART 4: The odds with Paddy Power (43m 00s) • PART 5: Who will be this tournament’s Panenka?

Matt Davies-Adams, Duncan Alexander and Daniel Storey react to one of the most anticipated days of Euro 2020 so far. Scotland take a point from Wembley as Steve Clarke’s bold selection pays off. Has Gareth Southgate been spooked by the anonymous Harry Kane? And is there much point in lionising Grealish when England function best as a team? Group F on Saturday offers mouth-watering clashes between Hungary and France and Portugal up against Germany. Raphael Honigstein gives us his thoughts on what Jogi Low’s tactical approach should be against the holders. Spain take on Poland where it’s Morata v Lewandowski – equals when it comes to international tournaments. And not in a good way. Plus Blackburn’s Ben Brereton bags in the Copa America. And Duncan’s favourite thing about Jan Koller. RUNNING ORDER:    • PART 1: England 0-0 Scotland (02m 30s) • PART 2a: Croatia 1-1 Czech Republic (14m 30s) • PART 2b: Sweden 1-0 Slovakia (18m 45s) • PART 3a: Portugal v Germany preview with Raphael Honigstein (22m 30s) • PART 3b: Hungary v France preview (32m 00s) • PART 3c: Spain v Poland preview (34m 30s) • PART 4: The odds with Paddy Power (37m 45s) • PART 5: On This Day and Big Ben Brereton (39m 30s) SIGN UP TO THE ATHLETIC FOR £1 A MONTH FOR YOUR FIRST 6 MONTHS: • theathletic.com/totally   GET IN TOUCH: • follow us on Instagram • find us on Facebook • send us a tweet: @TheTotallyShow   PARISH NOTICES: • we’re sponsored by Paddy Power - home of the Money Back Special   READ STUFF ON OUR WEBSITE: • check out thetotallyfootballshow.com.

Matt Davies Adams, Daniel Storey, and Carl Anka are here with the fall out from Thursday's action and to set you up for a big Friday. On the show it was an emotional night in Copenhagen as Denmark played Belgium and united in celebration of Christian Eriksen after 10 minutes. Elsewhere The Netherlands secured their place in the knockout stages with a 2-0 win over Austria. We ask if the draw is in the favour? And we wave a fond farewell to North Macedonia who lost 2-1 to Ukraine. Then it's all eyes to Wembley as England and Scotland ready themselves to do battle. To get the Scottish perspective we speak with Scotland and Chelsea midfielder, Erin Cuthbert, whilst back in the pod we assess Southgate's best full back options.

Good Pod as always! Had West Ham took their Chances Man U would off lost imo. Haller unfortunate with slip after getting around Henderson, which makes you wonder Bowen slipped Twice last game bc boots... Equipment issues? Bowen missed clear chance & Fornals hit inside post & should of Donne better with header. Could of been 4-5 up by half. Fernandes is brilliant, I can believe it took so long for a 'bigger' club to buy him. They should of sold Pogba two summers ago & got him then bc Pogba/Mina are toxic. Looking forward to UCL now some huge matches⚽

You wanna know what service I will never use? Sportsbroker... after the advert damn near busted my eardrum. Adverts don’t need to be 50% louder than the rest of the show. Great show otherwise.

The person responsible for the meaningless titles is not doing this podcast any favours. They give no idea of whether or not the content is likely to be of interest.
