The trio all missed their spot-kicks on Sunday evening as Italy ran out 3-2 winners over England on penalties.

Many have criticised Gareth Southgate's decision to have them take penalties, being aged 19, 21 and 23 respectively.

But new footage has emerged of Southgate approaching each man and they were all incredibly confident.


Jack Grealish can also be seen hovering around and he was not chosen to take a penalty at Wembley.

Fans have reacted to the footage and they've thrown their support behind Saka, Sancho and Rashford.






Southgate spoke following the game and said it was his decision regarding who took the penalties.

He explained per Daily Star: "We prepared as well as we could for the (penalty shootout), that's my responsibility, I chose the guys to take the kicks.

"In the end, we weren't quite able to see the game through in the normal regulation time.

"That's my decision to give him [Saka] that penalty, that's totally my responsibility.

"It's not him or Marcus or Jadon, we work together, we work through them in training, that's the order we came to. That's my call as a coach."
