Italy secured the Euro 2020 title after defeating hosts England 3-2 on penalties following their 1-1 draw at Wembley Stadium.

Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bokayo Saka missed their penalties, as Gianluigi Donnarumma made two saves giving the Azzurri a memorable win in front of more than 60.000 fans.

The Three Lions went ahead early on thanks to Luke Shaw’s volley in the 2nd minute.

Leonardo Bonucci leveled the score in the 67th minute with a tap-in.

Italy controlled most of the play, and went close to sealing the win in the 107th minute.

    Hew England,
    Not going too well for you guys now.
    Brexit is a terrible disaster, with suddenly 300,000 workers missing who always did the dirty jobs for you. No food in the supermarkets, ridiculous over-the-top expensive customs rules, EU/US suppliers walking away and supplies left rotting in the docks. Matter of time till Scotland does what it should have done a long time ago – walk away from the British arrogance of assumed superiority. Ireland will take what is theirs too. London can kiss their finance heart of the world goodbye, and Heathrow will be passed by for anything but local traffic.

    Your soccer is a reflection of how you see the world, you might win a bit, but you will flat on your faces due to incompetent leaders.

    Sorry.
