London: Italy won the Euro 2020 final by beating England 3-2 on penalties after the game had finished 1-1 after 90 minutes and extra time at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
With this, Italy became champions of Europe for the first time since 1968.
England took the lead with a Luke Shaw strike in the 2nd minute, the quickest ever goal in a Euro final. Leonardo Bonucci scored the equaliser for Italy in the 67th minute.
From there on, England struggled to find their composure but managed to hold on to take the game to extra time and, after another nervous 30 minutes, penalties were needed to separate the two sides.
Marcos Rashford, Jaydon Sancho and Bukayo Sako missed the vital penalties for England, with Gianluigi Donnarumma saving from the last two and Rashford sending his penalty against the post.
It was only the second European Championship final to be decided by spot-kicks and Italy who came out on top as England’s incredible run at the tournament fell just short.
