Gianluigi Donnarumma saves from Bukayo Saka to win Euro 2020

Gianluigi Donnarumma was Italy’s hero as he saved from Bukayo Saka to clinch a 3-2 penalty shootout victory over England after a 1-1 draw in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley. 

Jordan Pickford saved two of Italy’s spot-kicks, yet it was his counterpart who came up with the goods to clinch the Azzurri’s second European Championship title. 

It was a night that started so well for England, with Luke Shaw scoring the quickest goal in a Euro final. 

Yet mounting Italy pressure told when Leonardo Bonucci scored midway through the second half, and after late substitutes Marcus Rashford hit the post and Jadon Sancho failed to beat Donnarumma in the shootout, Saka fell foul of Italy’s goalkeeper as England suffered heartbreak on home soil.
