Italy have won Euro 2020 after a dramatic penalty shoot-out win against England.

Roberto Mancini’s side claimed victory after Bukayo Saka’s effort was saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Gareth Southgate’s side made a dream start in the match and went ahead after only two minutes.

Harry Kane spread the play out to Kieran Trippier and the wing-back’s cross was rammed home at the far post by Luke Shaw.

Roberto Mancini’s side began to dominate possession, but England were defending compactly and managed to snuff out any danger as the game headed towards half-time.

Italy’s deserved leveller came midway through the second half as Bonucci struck from close range following a corner.

Marco Verratti snuck in at the far post and his header was tipped on to the post by Pickford, but Bonucci tapped home the rebound.

There was a blow for Italy five minutes from time as the dangerous Chiesa hobbled off with an injury.

It was a tense six minutes of time added on, where Italy were camped in England’s half, but they could not force a chance and the game ended 1-1, with extra-time required.
