Italy, at the cost of extreme efforts, was able to overcome England and became the 2020 UEFA European champion on Sunday.
Italy's goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma was named the best footballer of this year's championship.
In the 2nd minute, the Italians' goal was struck by English defender Luke Shaw, who scored his first goal on the national team and immediately in the Euro final, setting the record for the fastest goal scored in the final match of the European championship.
The Italian team failed to rectify the situation during the first half, even taking into account the added 4 minutes of the referee, although Federico Chiesa was just a little wide of the net. Nevertheless, in the 67th minute of the match, Leonardo Bonucci managed to score a goal for his team after a corner.
Bonucci became the oldest goalscorer in the European championship finals.
And finally, on the occasion of the goal with which @bonucci_leo19 brought Italy on 1-1 in the #Euro2020Final vs England, we get to see a story of @Charles_Leclerc supporting the @azzurri! 🙌🏻😍💪🏻— Charles Leclerc fanpage (@lovingleclercTV) July 11, 2021
