Italy forms a guard of honour as the match officials are presented with commemorative trinkets.
Donnarumma, currently without a club, has been nominated by the UEFA as the ‘Player of the Tournament’.
Eder walks out with the Henri Delaunay Cup again.

The much-dreaded wait continues for England as Saka breaks down into tears. Italy is the European champion again, for the first time since 1968.

Grealish and Sterling stare into space even as Kane tries to calm the young Saka down. He is inconsolable at the moment. The stadium has dropped dead but it can be proud of what the team managed to pulled off.

Southgate, meanwhile, calls for a roundtable and whispers words of encouragement to Sancho, Rice and the likes who have crumbled down.

ITA 3-2 ENG: Saka misses! Deja vu for Southgate… IT IS NOT COMING HOME! Confirmation from Bonucci, who sabotages a camera to shout, “It is coming to Rome!”

ITA 3-2 ENG: Jorginho, one of the coolest customers, falters. Pickford with a marvellous save to keep England in the contest.

ITA 3-2 ENG: Donnarumma punches out Sancho’s effort and Italy is almost there…

ITA 3-2 ENG: Bernardeschi goes straight down the middle and it is good enough!

ITA 2-2 ENG: Rashford hits the post. On an even keel now!

ITA 2-2 ENG: A little shuffle and Bonucci scores.

ITA 1-2 ENG: Maguire’s broken the in-goal camera. Advantage England!

ITA 1-1 ENG: Pickford denies Belotti.

ITA 1-1 ENG: Kane pulls level with a drive towards the bottom left.

ITA 1-0 ENG: Berardi, sends Pickford the wrong way, and drives it in.


Into penalties we go… Nerves. NERVES. This is only the second time a EURO final will be settled by a shootout. Czech Republic beat West Germany in 1976 in the only other instance.

120′ England had its back on the wall in the final minutes with Italy almost converting a corner. Bernardeschi whips it in but the ball misses everyone before bouncing off the face of the goal. Three minutes added on.

119′ Sancho and Rashford replace Walker and Henderson.

118′ Florenzi on for Emerson.

115′ Tired legs everywhere. The pace of the game has dropped to great extents even as Phillips’s freekick has been comfortably lapped up by Donnarumma.

114′ Yellow card! Jorginho has been let off with what could have been a straight red. Grealish seems to be in a lot of pain as the referee waves towards the dugout for the physios to come on. A clumsy challenge which ends in Jorginho stepping on Grealish’s thigh.

110′ England continues to probe, looking to cash in on the littlest of opportunities. Sterling sneaks through an opening on the right flank but Chiellini puts in a tough challenge.

109′ Pickford is trying to run down the clock. Takes all the time in the world to allow his teammates to settle deep into Italy’s defensive third.

107′ Pickford falters as Bernardeschi has a brilliant effort on goal. The England shot-stopper spills it on the first occasion but collects the rebound in time with a lunge forward.

106′ England getting ready for the shootouts, as it gets Rashford ready to walk in. Meanwhile, Maguire picks up a yellow card for a late challenge on Belotti. Italy has a freekick from 25 yards.

105+1′ The first extra-time half ends with England making a mess of a freekick, pushing and shoving the men in blue within the box.

105′ One added minute at the end of the first period of extra-time.

103′ England gets away with a terrible error as Walker commits to a sliding tackle on the left. Emerson’s searching cross curls in but Pickford does the brilliant job of keeping it out even as an onrushing Bernardeschi almost taps it in.

100′ Grealish’s first involvement comes in no time as he hurries into the opponent’s box and proceeds to tease the defenders before clipping a backheel to Saka. The Arsenal playmaker fails to keep the ball in control as it rolls behind for a goalkick.

99′ Grealish of Aston Villa, a crowd favourite, comes on for Mount, who has been strangely silent in this tournament.

97′ Shaw takes the corner and it takes a deflection to fall into Phillips’ path who swings from 25 yards. Just fizzes past the crossbar.

96′ More changes from Italy. Locatelli replaces Verratti. It’s a bit surprising that Southgate hasn’t made any changes yet, considering the number of options he has on the bench.

93′ Belotti almost accidentally kicks Maguire in the forehead as they come together under a high ball.

92′ Bernardeschi finds himself in a bit of space on the left but the referee does the fine job of spotting an earlier offense on Henderson by Emerson. There’ll be a freekick.

91′ Italy has made a change. Belotti walks in for Insigne.


FULL-TIME: With 90 minutes not proving to be enough to settle the contest, we go into Extra-Time!

90+5′ Italy is enjoying most of the possession with England having to do all the running. None of the sides would be looking to commit a mistake in the dying moments as there’d be no going back from there. Chiellini, meanwhile, gives away a freekick for jersey-pulling. Saka goes down as the Italian skipper gets a yellow card. Unnecessary move, one might say.

90+3′ We are only moments away from extra time… Bonucci heads a ball back to Donnarumma.

90′ Speed merchant Sterling slips past the Italian cordon but a poor touch sees the ball roll out for a goalkick. We will see six minutes of additional time.

88′ A brief stoppage as the stewards give chase to a pitch invader.

86′ So yes, that’ll be it from Chiesa. This is heartbreaking for the Italians. Bernardeschi takes his place.

85′ Another yellow card. Insigne is the culprit this time, booked for a reckless challenge on Phillips.

84′ Mount, played down the left, tries to thread one to Saka. The Italian players however boot the ball out.

80′ Chiesa frustrates England further. Saka, Walker and Phillips combine in an effort to stop him on the left. The referee sees no foul play but seems like the Juventus forward may have twisted his ankle. He limps out with only a boot on. Is that it from him tonight?

74′ Rice has been swapped for Henderson now.

73′ Almost! Bonucci sends a flighted ball down the centre to Berardi at the penalty spot. With Pickford out of his line, Berardi hurriedly hauls it on the volley. Flashes just over.

71′ Saka replaces Trippier as Southgate looks to fall back on his customary approach
