Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Conor Coady has posted on Instagram, after England were beaten in the Euro 2020 final by Italy.
It wasn’t to be for the Three Lions this time, as Gianluigi Donnarumma thwarted three players in a penalty shootout.
Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka were the players to miss.
Despite coming up short, praise has been plentiful for a group of players that have brought a nation together this summer.
Coady didn’t get any minutes at the tournement in the end, but the experience will stay with him forever.
The 28-year-old is one of many England players who have reacted on social media to last night’s result.
He said: “Some of the best few weeks of my life with this incredible team … it’s an absolute privilege to represent this country with this group of lads, we should be proud and know that this is just the start for this group of young lads.”
Plenty of fans have responded, and Pedro Neto’s comment sums it up beautifully on behalf of Wolves fans.
Coady a credit to Wolves
He may not have played, but Coady has done the Molineux faithful proud.
Steve Holland’s recent comments suggest he was a real asset for Gareth Southgate behind the scenes.
Hopefully he enjoys a nice break now, before coming back to Compton Park to work under Bruno Lage.
