It's coming Rome! Gianluigi Donnarumma penalty heroics win Euro 2020 for Italy

Italy broke England's hearts at Euro 2020 by taking the title in a dramatic penalty shootout.

Italy broke England hearts in the final of Euro 2020 after they won the title in a penalty shootout.

England got off to a flyer when Luke Shaw gave the Three Lions an early lead after just two minutes.

However, Italy slowly began to grow into the game, and they got their reward when Leonardo Bonucci scrambled home an equaliser from a corner.

From their, neither team looked especially likely to win it, and penalties became increasingly likely.

In the shootout, it was England who once again edged ahead when Andrea Belotti missed Gli Azurri's second kick.

However, England crumbled from there. Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho both missed, but Jordan Pickford kept them alive by saving Jorginho's kick.

However, Gianluigi Donnarumma won it for Italy, saving Bukayo Saka's effort.

What was said

Gareth Southgate: "In terms of the penalties, that's my call. It totally rests with me.

"I decided on the penalty takers based on what they've done in training, and nobody is on their own. We won together as a team, and it's on all of us for not being able to win the game tonight.

"We're hugely disappointed. The players have been an absolute credit, they've given everything they possibly could.

"They've run themselves into the ground. At times they played really well, at times we didn't keep the ball quite well enough, especially at the start of the second half, but we can't have any recriminations, they've been a joy to work with. They've gone further than we've gone for so long, but tonight it's incredibly painful in that dressing room."

Harry Kane: "The boys couldn't have given more. Penalties are obviously are the worst thing in the world when you lose.

"It wasn't our night but it's been a fantastic tournament and we should be proud, hold our heads up high.

"Of course it's going to hurt for a while but we are on the right track and hopefully we can progress from this next year."
