Euro 2020 Final: Italy Crowned Champions After Penalty Shootout Win Over England


The European Championship final pits England and Italy against each other. 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. The score remained 1-1 at the end of 90 minutes as well as after Extra-Time. Italy won 3-2 on penalties.

Italy, one of the most decorated teams in the world, has ended a few years of trophy drought. England, on the other hand, was in uncharted territory. They haven’t even reached a final since 1966. The last of Italy’s four World Cup victories came in 2006 and has already reached the final twice in recent years — in 2000 and 2012. With the pandemic restricting travel to London, the permitted crowd of 66,000 at Wembley Stadium will be largely packed with England fans.
