Match Updates


ITALY WIN THE EUROS! After a 1-1 draw in normal time with goals from Shaw and Bonucci, the game was taken to penalties. Pickford made two big saves to keep the hopes alive for his team in the shootout, but Rashford hit the post and Donnarumma made big saves to keep out both Sancho and Saka which won the game for his side.


SAVE! Another big save by Donnarumma as he pushes away Saka's spot-kick and he wins it for Italy! He tries to place it in the bottom right corner, but the keeper guesses right and gets two hands to it.

SAVE! Jorginho, who scored the decisive penalty against Spain, sees his effort saved! He does his trademark hop before hitting it, but Pickford waits, guesses wrong and pushes it away from the bottom corner.

SAVE! Sancho stutters his run-up just like Rashford, but his penalty is a comfortable height for Donnarumma. It's not in the corner and the keeper pushes it away.

3-2 ITALY! Cool as you like from Bernardeschi slots his penalty straight down the middle. Pickford dives to his right and can't keep it out.

OFF THE POST! Rashford takes his time before starting the run-up and stutters before trying to place it in the bottom corner. Donnarumma dives the wrong way but it bounces back off the bottom of the post.

2-2! It's a confident penalty from Bonucci, who just stops before taking the strike. Pickford takes a step before diving the right way, but the spot-kick is lifted over his head and out of reach.

2-1 ENGLAND! It's a brilliant penalty from Maguire as smashes his penalty into the top-right corner of the net. Donnarumma gets nowhere near it.

SAVE! Belotti curls his effort towards the bottom right corner, but Pickford gets down well to make a save and push it away from goal.

1-1! It's a good spot-kick from Kane and he whips it into the same corner as Berardi. Donnarumma went the right way, but he just couldn't get his hand to the ball.

1-0 ITALY! Italy are going first, with Berardi stepping up to the spot. He sends Pickford the wrong way, comfortably nestling his penalty into the bottom left corner.

Neither side could find a breakthrough so we're going to penalties in the Euro 2020 final after a 1-1 draw between Italy and England. Shaw put England ahead very early on but Bonucci equalised after tapping in from a corner in the second half. Bernardeschi saw a free-kick saved in extra time, with Phillips also having a good chance which he dragged wide. Italy go to penalties for the second game running, with Donnarumma making a big save in that game to help them to the win. For England, it's their first shootout in the tournament this year.

120’+3  -  FULL-TIME: ITALY 1-1 ENGLAND.

120’+1  - England have a corner to defend after making those changes and it's a great cross in from Bernardeschi. It's flicked on at the near post again, but there's no one following in at the back to tap it in.

120 ’  - Substitution

Walker also makes way, with Sancho on in his place.

103’ - Highlight

GOOD SAVE! Walker commits himself with the tackle and Insigne just steps past him on the left. He curls a great cross into the near post and Bernardeschi just misses it ahead of Pickford who then pushes it away with a strong hand.

 97’ - Highlight

GOOD CHANCE! Shaw's corner is cleared, but the ball falls for Phillips just outside the box. He has time to take a touch before drilling it across the crowded box. Donnarumma sees it late, but it's always heading wide of the far post.


And England get us back underway for extra time! 



82’ - Highlight

Chiesa stayed down after the challenge from Trippier and the medical team are on to give him some treatment on his ankle. He gingerly gets back to his feet to make his way slowly to the side of the pitch, but it looks like he's going to try and carry on for now.

73’ - Highlight

GREAT CHANCE! It's a lovely pass over the top from Verratti and Berardi times his run perfectly to stay onside. He watches the ball as it drops over his shoulder before hitting it on the volley, but Pickford rushes off his line and makes himself big to put him off.

67’ Goal!

BONUCCI EQUALISES! Insigne's corner is flicked on at the near post and Verratti heads it on goal at the back. Pickford makes a big save as he claws it against the post but Bonucci is following in to poke it past the keeper and into the back of the net. 1-1!

51’ Highlight

CLOSE! It's Insigne that steps up to take the free-kick he won just outside the D and he curls his effort around the outside of the wall towards the far post. It doesn't trouble Pickford though and it's always flying wide.


England get us back underway for the second half! 


England got off to a perfect start and lead Italy 1-0 at half-time. It took just under two minutes for England to take the lead after a quick break which started and ended with Shaw. He was at the far post to tuck Trippier's cross in on the half-volley. Italy had a few half-chances with Chiesa drilling a low effort just wide before Stones made an important block to deny Immobile.



45’+1 - Highlight

CHANCE! It's a good cross in from Di Lorenzo on the right to pick out Immobile in the middle and he hits it first time on the volley. Stones makes an important block before Pickford makes a comfortable save to deny Verratti on the follow-up.

35' - Highlight

CLOSE! The referee plays the advantage when Chiesa is tugged back by Rice and he carries on his run. He skips past another challenge before getting into a pocket of space just outside the box and ends up dragging his shot just wide of the near post.

22’ Highlight

Jorginho has gone down holding his knee and he looks to be in a bit of pain. The medical team have given him some treatment, but when they get him to the side of the field, they sit him down again to carry on.

8’ - Highlight

CHANCE! Chiesa wins a free-kick just outside the box and it's Insigne that steps up to take it for Italy. He curls his shot over England's wall, but there's no dip on the shot and it sails high over the crossbar.


England are sitting back deep in their own half as Italy keep the pressure on here and Chiesa cuts inside from the right after he can't find a way past Shaw. He runs straight into Phillips though and he clears the danger.


Italy are pushing to get an instant reply here but Verratti's throughball is cut out by Rice on the edge of the box. He touches it out to Mount and Jorginho uses his hand in his attempts to win it back.

2’ Assist

Trippier took a touch to set himself before swinging a wonderful cross into the far post for Shaw to get on the end of.

2’ Goal!

ENGLAND LEAD! They break quickly on the counter after an Italian corner and it's started and finished by Shaw. It's worked from left to right and Trippier swings a cross into Shaw. He hits it first time past Donnarumma at his near post to net his first international goal and give England a 1-0 lead!


It's Italy that get the Euro 2020 final underway at Wembley!
