Italy win Euro 2020 as England suffer penalty heartbreak

italy-win-euro-2020

England have lost on penalties to Italy in the Euro 2020 final.

Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka all missed from the spot for the Three Lions.

The game ended 1-1 after 120 minutes.

Luke Shaw had given England a dream start, scoring the fastest of a Euros final ever, before Leonardo Bonucci equalized for the Azzurris.

When Jordan Pickford saved from Andrea Belotti there was real hope of a first major trophy in 55 years and ultimate redemption for manager Gareth Southgate, who missed a decisive spot-kick in the semi-final of Euro 96.

But from the brink of glory in front of their own supporters at Wembley, England collapsed.

Rashford rolled a tame shot against the post and Sancho and Saka saw Gianluigi Donnarumma save their efforts in a 3-2 shootout defeat.
