(ANSA) – ROME, JULY 11 – Italy is European champion, beating England 4-3 on penalties in the Wembley final. The game immediately went well for the English, with Shaw scoring in the second minute. Italy, not as brilliant as in previous games, suffered from the attitude of the Southgate team, very covered, and only a personal action by Chiesa gave some thrills to Pickford, practically inactive. In the second half, Mancini recalled Barella and Immobile by inserting Cristante and Berardi. At 22 ‘the blue equalizer arrived: on a corner kick a scrum broke out in the area and Bonucci slipped into the net from two steps. The 1-1 was nailed both in the 90 ‘and in extra time, despite the many changes on both sides, and penalties were necessary, with Donnarumma once again decisive. (HANDLE).
