LONDON (EFE) – Italy won their second European Championship after defeating England on penalties (1-1 at the end of the match) with the failures of Saka, Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford from eleven meters.
The team led by Roberto Mancini succeeded the 1968 champion team that won the European Championship after beating Yugoslavia 2-0 in the final. 53 years later, Italy was proclaimed champion.
The match against England began with a goal from Luke Shaw in the second minute after taking advantage of an assist from the right wing by Kieran Trippier that finished off the net of the goal defended by Gianluigi Dunnarumma.
Then, in the 67th minute, Bonucci leveled after Marco Verratti’s header from a corner kick that hit the post. The Italian center-back picked up the rebound and sent the game into extra time, in which there were no more goals. In the end, the penalties dictated sentence and Italy was proclaimed champion.
