Comments:

Penalty shoot-out details (England went second) 1 – Harry Kane [scored] 2 – Harry Maguire [scored] 3 – Marcus Rashford [missed] 4 – Jadon Sancho [saved] 5 – Bukayo Saka [saved] Playing in their first major Final since the FIFA World Cup in 1966, England became the 13th nation to play in a UEFA European Championship Final. With his first international goal, timed at one minute and 57 seconds, Luke Shaw's opener became the quickest-ever goal scored in a UEFA European Championship Final. After winning their first penalty shoot-out at a UEFA European Championship finals against Spain at Wembley in 1996, the Three Lions had now lost their next four in the tournament; also versus Germany at Wembley at Euro 1996, Portugal at Euro 2004 and Italy at Euro 2012. Aged 19 years and 309 days, Bukayo Saka became the fourth-youngest player to appear in a UEFA European Championship Final.

Penalty shoot-out details (Italy went first) 1 – Domenico Berardi [scored] 2 – Andrea Belotti [saved] 3 – Leonardo Bonucci [scored] 4 – Federico Bernardeschi [scored] 5 – Jorginho [saved] In their tenth Final at a major tournament, Italy won the European Championship for the first time since 1968. Aged 34 years and 71 days, Leonardo Bonucci became the oldest scorer in a UEFA European Championship Final; previously West Germany’s Bernd Hölzenbein against Czechoslovakia in 1976 (30 years and 103 days). They became the first team to win two penalty shoot-outs at the same UEFA European Championship finals. They broke their pattern of alternating between victories and defeats in their last seven shoot-outs in all competitions. The Azzurri extended their national record to 34 consecutive games without defeat. During the run, they had trailed for 44 minutes going into this game. Following England’s early opener they trailed for 65 minutes in this game.
