Manager Roy Hodgson has received praise for guiding England to top spot in Group D with two wins and a draw, but did he get it wrong against Italy?

However, the Three Lions did keep a clean sheet, and some better penalties would have seen them through to the last four.

What did you think?

Yesterday we asked you who would win England's quarter-final - just over half of you backed Hodgson's men to beat Italy. Sadly, that's not how it turned out.
