The ITV talk show began their Monday show by replaying the final moments from England’s gutting penalty shootout against Italy.

The nation saw their footballing hopes dashed as Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka saw his penalty saved by Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

“That poor boy. I don’t know if it’s being a mother or whatever – I wanted to sob for him, I wasn’t even angry.

“I couldn’t stand it and the fact he’s had any form of abuse online – that’s not even worth mentioning as they are braindead – but I think anyone in the country should be so proud of all of them.”

The rest of the Loose Women panel Charlene White, Jane Moore and guest Storm Keating echoed Coleen’s message.

Charlene said: “I was emotional about it at the very end with Saka, I just wanted to give him a hug.

“This is the most diverse team we’ve ever had – we’ve got players whose families originate from elsewhere in the world and it’s beautiful. To see that little boy in tears at 19 years old…”

Jane cut in, also wanting to have her say on the footballing heartbreak.

She said: “Apparently, as Southgate said afterwards, it was totally his decision and he picked them on training.

“Training is different to the pressure of the real thing and apparently Jack Grealish said he wanted to do a competition and wasn’t chosen.”
