At the end of regulation time, Luke Shaw and Leonardo Bonucci’s 1:1 goals are scored on the scoreboard. Since the extra work did not lead to a solution, a series of penalties around the fate of victory at Euro 2020. The Italians turned out to be the best, winning 3-2 and winning the European Championship for the second time in history.

Euro 2020 Italy – England – Penalty kicks

Gareth Southgate appointed eleven people to perform, among other things, two players who did not enter the field until the 120th minute. Marcus Rashford missed and hit the right post, and Gianluigi Donnarumma’s shot was saved by Jadon Sancho. In the last round, 19-year-old Bukayo Saka also made a mistake. Football players, rather than heroes, became victims of racist attacks.

After the last meeting, social media was filled with negative comments about the three players. Netizens did not criticize their game much, but vulgarly commented on the color of the skin, and Bukayo accused Sais of Nigerian origin. Thousands of monkey and banana emojis have appeared in player profiles, as well as orders to leave England and plenty of criminal threats.

The British Minister of Health also condemned the racist attacks. Edward Argar pointed out that there is no place for this kind of behavior either in sport nor in Great Britain. Earlier, the Football Association issued a letter urging fans to stop such practices, and representatives of the local police announced that they would take steps to identify people who posted racist comments online.
