Euro 2020 Finals

Posted  205 Views updated 1 year ago

The Euro 2020 has finally come to an end with England missing the chance of winning the prestigious competition since their last major win in 1966. An early Luke Shaw goal put the Three Lions in front all through the first 45 minutes.

It was Italy that kept on putting pressure on the English team who had become complacent in their approach the match. The English team resorted to playing more defensively than offensively. It was Leonardo Bonucci 67 minutes goal that changed the whole game and brought the Italians back in the game. The 71% Italian ball possession as against England’s 29% showed Italy’s zeal to win the game. The Italians were more enterprising.

At the end of full time and extra time, the game had ended in a stale mate and the winner decided via a penalty shootout. England’s goal stopper Pickford would have been the hero of the match after two penalty saves but England born Nigerian wonder kid Saka’s penalty was saved by the Italian keeper.. Italy beat England 3:2 in penalties.

England will have to wait next year to break the jinx of a major trophy if they can win the world. Congratulations to Italy and Robert Mancini who has not lost a match after 34 games.
