 Euro 2020 Final: Italy beat England 3-2 on Penalties

Italy beat England 3-2 on penalties after the Euro 2020 final ended 1-1 following extra time at Wembley on Sunday to secure their second European Championship title. Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma was the hero for the Azzurri in the shootout, while substitutes Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka failed to convert from the spot for England.

Luke Shaw had struck the fastest goal in a Euro final to put England ahead in the second minute. Harry Kane fed Kieran Trippier on the right and his glorious cross was drilled home first time by left back Shaw.

But Leonard Bonucci drew Italy level in the 67th when England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford pushed Marco Verratti’s header against the post and Bonucci pounced to slot in the loose ball.

England remain without a major trophy since 1966.

So, we’ll bring the curtain down too on this live feed of the Euro 2020 final as we witnessed Italy win the title after a dramatic penalty shoot-out. The Azzurri probably did enough to warrant the win after an early goal and solid first 45′ from Southgate’s men. England can look forward to Qatar 2022 where they start as one of the favourties and next up for Italy is the UEFA Nations League in Italy next October.
