Italy, the new European champion. A revenge taken after 9 years of this. This match had started with upsets for this winning team. Just two minutes into the game, England had scored a goal. Luke Shaw had opened the scoring in the first half. England were one step ahead of their opponents.

The Italian Bonucci equalized the score in the 67th minute. The chance of winning the match for the English was decreasing, the chance for the Italians was increasing to 50%. Until the end of the game, neither side had scored a goal. With extra time, neither team could win.

The game went to penalties. Italy beat England in the final on penalties (3-2). It is the second European Cup won by the Squadra Azzura after the 1968 one. It was a great achievement for the Italians, who had a perfect tournament. While the English had the advantage of their home crowd, playing at Wembley, the Italians had the nerves to push the hosts into a penalty shoot-out. And in that exercise, they were more realistic.

In every phase of this football competition, there were almost always penalties. Each team had struggled against the other. So, we can conclude that chance played a big role in this Euro 2020. Nothing was defined during the match.

In 2012, Italy was beaten by Spain in the Euro final.
