Heartbreak for England as Italy win Euro 2020 after a dramatic penalty shootout

  • Italy beat England in a dramatic penalty 3-2
  • Donnarumma made 2 saves as 3 English players missed penalties
  • Italy's first Euro title in 53 years, the longest ever gap between titles in the tournament by a single nation

England's wait for their first major football trophy since 1966 got longer as Italy beat them 3-2 on penalties in Euro 2020 final to clinch European football's ultimate title on Sunday night at the Wembley stadium.

It seemed that England's 55-year long wait would finally end when Luke Shaw gave them a perfect start with a goal in just the 2nd minute. But Leonardo Bonucci equalised in the 67th minute, becoming the oldest player ever to score in a European Championship final. Extra time too failed to produce a winner as the game went into penalty shootouts and Gianluigi Donnarumma turned out to be the hero. The Italian goalkeeper made 2 saves as 3 English players missed penalties. 

The Three Lions have won just 22% of their major tournament shootouts, the lowest ratio of any European nation to have been involved in 3 or more. On the other hand, by winning their 2nd Euro title, The Azzurri extended its unbeaten streak to 34 games.
