Italy Beats England To Win Euro 2020
GoldenNewsNg reports that Italy has won Euro 2020.
This online news platform understands that Italy were the best team throughout, and all things considered, they deserved to win tonight.
It’s a desperate shame for England that it ended this way, but they gave a great account of themselves throughout.
Italy beat England in a penalty shootout to win the European soccer championship on Sunday, dashing England’s hopes of winning its first major title since the 1966 World Cup.
The shootout was a dramatic conclusion to a gripping day at London’s Wembley Stadium, and to a monthlong tournament that overcame a one-year pandemic delays and dozens of positive tests and innumerable public health concerns on its way to a final, scintillating day in London.
The final was worth the wait: It saw an early England goal by Luke Shaw, a second-half response from Leonardo Bonucci and then a whirlwind of highs and lows, misses and makes, before Italy prevailed in the shootout, 3-2.
Gianluigi Donnarumma, Italy’s hulking goalkeeper, pushed aside the final attempt by the England teenager Buyako Saka to clinch the victory, setting off a wild celebration that saw players from each team dissolve into tears.
