Northern Ireland’s record goalscorer David Healy says that England boss Gareth Southgate and his players should feel proud at how they conducted themselves in the Euro 2020 finals but has admitted he has no sympathy for them following their penalty shoot-out defeat to Italy in Sunday’s decider at Wembley.

The Linfield boss did, however, express his disappointment at the abuse suffered post match by England stars Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka, who missed their spot-kicks as Italy triumphed 3-2 on penalties following a compelling 1-1 draw after extra-time.
