England’s Euro 2020 dreams were shattered in heartbreaking fashion.

In their first major final in 55 years, the Three Lions fell to Italy on Sunday in the Euro 2020 final on penalty kicks, 3-2, at Wembley Stadium after it was 1-1 through extra time.

Bukayo Saka had a chance to tie it with the final penalty kick, but Gianluigi Donnarumma saved the shot to win it for Italy.

Luke Shaw scored the fastest goal in Euro final history at one minute, 57 seconds. But Leonardo Bonucci tied the game in the 67th minute.

England hasn’t won a major title since the 1966 World Cup.

Justice has been served. And the story myth of the inventors of football is clear, they might have invented it, but never managed to excel, second ever final, having won the first one back in 66, with a phantom goal, and this time having played 6 out of 7 games at home, an again reaching the final with a non existant penalty, scandalous, also another myth that sinks, the fair play one about english football, how can they celebrate reaching the final after such a robbery?. seeing how the hooligans behave its clear.



Good for football and for everyone that they losed, now lets take em out of any competition until they manage to not being a public danger when you go to see a game in England

Thanks Italy.

I feel so sad for England.  For folks on about the fans, Italian fans have not exactly been great stewards of the game either.  Everyone has their bad eggs.  I am shocked at the security for Wembley though.  The British police are usually much better at crowd control than what we saw on Sunday.
