Italy beat England 3-2 in the final on penalties. They extend their unbeaten run to 34 games as they are European champions once again.
Luke Shaw gave England a dream start after scoring in the second minute of the game, the fastest goal in the history of the European championship. However, Italy could not bounce back until the 67th minute after Bonucci leveled the game.
67,000 English fans showed up at the Wembly stadium, and once again, England came short, and the wait of 55 years extended for a major honor. England ran the show for the better part of the game. However, it failed to win the game on penalties as Italy’s giant keeper, Gianluigi Donnarumma, saved Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka after Marcus Rashford hit the post.
Since 1976, for the first time, a final was decided on penalties. Previously, Italy had lost the finals in 2000 and 2012 before being crowned European champions for the second time.
