Italy won the European Championship for the second time by beating England 3-2 on penalties on Sunday. The match finished 1-1 after extra time at Wembley Stadium, which was filled mostly with English fans hoping to celebrate the team’s first international trophy since the 1966 World Cup.

Luke Shaw had given England a dream start with a superb goal after two minutes but Italy gradually took command as the hosts sat back and leveled through Bonucci after 67 minutes in the second half.

Both sides had fought out a 1-1 extra-time draw at Wembley on Sunday. So it went to penalties, where England’s young guns failed and Italy took the glory.

The giant keeper saved from Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka after Marcus Rashford hit the post, as Federico Bernardeschi, Leonardo Bonucci and Domenico Berardi all scored for the Italians.

England remains without a major trophy since 1966.
