- England walks up to the podium next to receive the silver medals.
- 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′Â 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 of playing four at the back.
67′ ITALY IS LEVEL! A corner has been whipped in onto the near post from where a header sees it sail further towards the back post. There’s a scramble as Verratti fires and Pickford spills it onto the woodwork. Bonucci, however, wins the rebound and slots it in.
64′ A save at the other end of the ground now as Donnarumma lifts Stones’ header behind with his fingertips.
62′ Pickford, set to win the Golden Glove later tonight, is visibly upset with his defenders after Chiesa hacks one on target again. The goalkeeper, unsighted for most of the time, times his last-ditch dive brilliantly to punch the ball away.
60′ Di Lorenzo’s delivery from the wings sees Emerson chest it down, but the referee spots the handball in the nick of time.
57′ Insigne acts on a loose ball as he shifts away from Rice into open space. However, a tight angle sees Pickford keep it out.
55′ Sparks fly! Bonucci goes into the referee’s book for a swipe at Sterling.
54′ Cristante and Berardi come on for Barella and Immobile.
52′ Chiesa tries to lob it on to Insigne in the deep. Walker leaps high and calmly heads the ball to Pickford. Sensational defending by the Manchester City man.
51′ An ambitious effort from Insigne as he tries to fire over the defensive wall and past Pickford after Sterling concedes a freekick at a potentially dangerous spot 20 yards out.
48′ Sterling has been brought down in the box as he tries to dribble past Bonucci and Chiellini. The referee isn’t interested and waves ‘play on’.
47′ The first booking of the game and it is Barella, who gets a yellow card for a challenge on Kane.
45′ Peeeeeeeeep! The referee blows the whistle and off we go. No changes at the break.
HALF-TIME: As the half wore on, Italy showed it wasn’t going to sit back and let the host dictate proceedings. The game had its moments and clearly Mancini has to resort to his ‘Plan B’ now, whatever that might be.
As for England, the day couldn’t have started on a brighter note. An early lead, a loud crowd to egg the side on and the perfect startegy.
Only 45 minutes away from finding out whether it comes home or goes to Rome…
45+3′ With plenty of men in forward positions, Bonucci decides to go for goal from almost halfway down the pitch from a difficult angle. Not sure what he was thinking.
45+1′ Stones shines again, blocking Immobile’s effort. Another buildup sees Pickford deny Verratti.
45′ Four minutes have been added on, much of it likely due to England’s excessive celebrations following Shaw’s opener.
44′ Sterling goes to ground on the edge of the Italy penalty area. The incessant appeals are turned down by the Dutch ref.
42′ Stones comes to England’s rescue again as Insigneâs inswinger has been headed clear.
39′ Offside! Immobile sees the flag go up as he takes over from Insigne.
38′ Rice and Emerson clatter in the midfield. The latter concedes a freekick.
36′ Shawâs cross across the face of the Italian goal has no takers. Emerson clears. England are banging hard on the doors again.
34′ Sheer persistence from Chiesa as he battles Shaw and then Rice to break into a great run. He pulls the trigger from 25 yards but the grounded shot is just wide of the right post. Pickford wasn’t even trying.
32′ 55.8% possession for the Azzuri who are seeing more of the ball now. The likes of Verratti, Barella and Jorginho have started to think on their feet.
28′ A super-optimistic effort from Insigne; tries to target Pickford from 30 yards. Bobbles wide. Italy need to commit more men beyond England’s defensive third.
27′ Italy is happy to stroke the ball in its own half, with each touch being greeted with jeers from the home crowd.
25′ Jorginho is okay to continue and thus, back on the pitch.
24′ Italy finding its feet slowly as Chiesa darts down the right and sends the ball in towards Immobile. An alert Stones clears the impending danger. Meanwhile, a colleague (closet England fan) texts: “Italians look rattled like the ferrari folks in ford v ferrari (sic)”
21′ Oh, this doesn’t look good. Jorginho has hit the deck and requires medical attention. As he hobbles off, the game restarts.
20′ Chiellini fouled for needlessly tugging on Kaneâs shirt.
18′ Emerson works his way past the England defence but… oops! Up goes the offside flag. England wastes no time to break into a run but Shaw’s probing ball goes out of play.
15′ England sniffs another opportunity as Mount sends one into Donnarumma’s arms from the flanks.
14′ As Di Lorenzo turns one out for a corner, Donnarumma gathers Trippier’s delivery comfortably.
10′ Walker finds Trippier, who in turn picks out Kane from the right flank. Italy intercepts. Scary moments for the visitor.
8′ Insigne tries to work it around the England wall, but Pickford heaves a sigh of relief as the ball sails over.
7′ Right… As Italy still looks to recover from the early shock, Chiellini outfoxes Maguire and Shaw at the edge of the box, but ends up getting clipped by Shaw. Freekick awarded to Italy.
2′ GOAAAAAAALLLL! The fastest one ever in the history of the EUROS final (01:57). Shaw leads the charge in a counter attacking move down the left. Kane feeds Trippier on the right and the latter’s searching cross finds Shaw again. The Manchester United player clanks it in on the volley from merely six yards out.

1′ KICKOFF – Sterling on the right, hmm… Italy gets the ball rolling from left to right. England, meanwhile, has been put under pressure straightaway as Maguire pushes the ball out for a corner. Insigne takes it and Maguire makes up for his error by heading it clear.
12:30 AM IST: The ball-bearing miniature car with rainbow-coloured decal races to the centre. Both teams take a knee.
12:26 AM IST: The teams have been led onto the pitch by the match officials. Time for the national anthem. And well… the boos are back, as Italy goes up first.
12:23 AM IST: EURO 2016’s winning goalscorer Eder of Portugal walks out with the trophy and places it on the plinth.
12:17 AM IST: The closing ceremony is underway, ladies and gentlemen! A couple of brilliant performances with virtual fireworks culminates into an AV of all the past winners of the continental tournament.
12:11 AM IST: It is drizzling a bit in Wembley. There’s a gentle breeze as well and the temperature is to fluctuate between 17-19 degree Celsius during the course of the game. There’s a yellow warning for heavy rainfall in place in Greater London.

11:06 PM IST: JUST IN – There have been multiple incidents reported regarding a certain section of the crowd trying to force their way into the stadium without tickets. It is being heard that Wembley may have gone into lockdown, with a delayed kickoff very much possible.
However, UEFA has released a statement saying, “Fans have been jumping over barriers but there has been no access to the stadium, so there is no concern that any protocol has to come into place in which this stadium will be shut down. There is no concern that this final will not go ahead.”
WHAT THEY SAID
Gareth Southgate to the BBC: “The way Italy play is pretty consistent. They pose a tactical problem which we felt we needed to resolve. It becomes complicated if you drag your wingers all the way back and we want our attacking players to stay a bit higher up the pitch where we think they can hurt on the counter-attack… Iâm done now, itâs over to them. Theyâre ready. Theyâre picking up more and more big-match experience, which theyâve coped with really well at the tournament and weâre looking forward to the challenge.”
Defender Kieran Trippier returns to England’s starting line-up for today’s European Championship final. His inclusion will be at the expense of Bukayo Saka, who played as a right winger against Denmark in the semifinal. Midfielder Phil Foden missed England’s final training session and in turn will also sit this contest out.
Italy, meanwhile, is unchanged from its last fixture.

50 games, 1,218 shots and 140 goals later, the EURO 2020 final is now set. Italy and England will meet in what will be their first clash at the European Championships since 2012.
For Italy, the stage is a familiar one. The Azzurri have played in seven finals at major tournaments since Englandâs last one in 1966. But although Gareth Southgateâs side may be in unchartered territory when compared to its opponent, it will be buoyed by the advantage of a home crowd at Wembley. Â
According to the Stats Perform prediction model, it is Roberto Manciniâs team, which retains the best chance of lifting the trophy (~60.1%).

ENGLAND: Jordan Pickford; Kyle Walker, John Stones, Harry Maguire; Kieran Trippier, Declan Rice, Kalvin Phillips, Mason Mount, Luke Shaw; Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling
â This is Italyâs 10th major tournament final (6 World Cup, 4 EURO), with only Germany (14) having played in more among European nations. Italy won the European Championship in 1968, but has lost its subsequent two final appearances in the competition (2000 and 2012).
â This will be Englandâs first ever appearance in a European Championship final, and its first in the final of a major tournament since winning the 1966 World Cup. Itâs the longest gap between major finals (World Cup/EUROs) for any European nation (55 years).
â England is the 13th different nation to feature in a European Championship final (counting Czechoslovakia and Czech Republic as one) â just three of the previous 12 lost their first ever final in the competition: Yugoslavia (1960), Belgium (1980) and Portugal (2004).
EURO 2020 Final: Dino Zoff feels England is under lot of pressure
â Italy has finished as runner-up of the European Championship on two occasions, losing to France in 2000 and Spain in 2012. Only Germany and USSR (3 each) have finished as runner-up more times than Italy in the competition.
â EURO 2020 will see England participate in the final while hosting the showpiece, the 11th instance of a European nation competing in a major tournament final as host (World Cup/EUROs). England also did so at the 1966 World Cup, beating Germany 4-2 at Wembley. Both of the last two European host nation finalist lost the final (Portugal at EURO 2004 and France at EURO 2016); only one of the first eight had lost its final prior to this (Sweden at the 1958 World Cup).
â Italy has never lost against England at a major tournament (W3 D1), winning 1-0 in EURO 1980, 2-1 at both the 1990 and 2014 World Cups, and drawing 0-0 before winning on penalties in EURO 2012.
â England has won just two of its last 14 meetings with Italy in all competitions (D5 L7), winning 2-0 in June 1997 and 2-1 in August 2013 â both in friendly matches. Indeed, England has won just one of its eight competitive meetings with Italy (D2 L5), 2-0 in a World Cup qualifier in November 1977.

â This is the third major tournament (EURO/World Cup) final to be held at Wembley Stadium. The previous two were both won in extra time, with England beating Germany in the 1966 World Cup, and Germany beating Czech Republic in EURO 1996.
â Italy is unbeaten in its last 33 matches in all competitions (W27 D6), scoring 86 goals and conceding just 10 in this run. This is its longest unbeaten stretch of matches in history.
â England has won 15 of its last 17 matches at Wembley Stadium in all competitions (D1 L1), scoring 46 goals and conceding just five in this run.
â England is unbeaten in its last 12 matches in all competitions (W11 D1), keeping 10 clean sheets and conceding just two goals in the process. The Three Lions have conceded just one goal so far at EURO 2020, with four of the seven previous sides to concede just once in a European Championship tournament winning the trophy (Soviet Union 1960, Italy 1968, Germany 1972 and Spain 2012).

â Italy has had 12 shots and scored three goals as a result of a high turnover (open play sequences beginning 40m or less from opponentâs goal line) at EURO 2020, more than any other side.
â Between them, England (2.2) and Italy (2.3) have faced fewer shots on target per game than any other sides at EURO 2020. England also has the lowest expected goals against tally in the competition so far (3.2).

Euro 2020 final, tactical preview: Southgateâs England takes on Mancini’s Italy
â Harry Kane has been directly involved in 28 goals in his last 27 appearances for England in all competitions (19 goals, 9 assists). One more goal will see him become Englandâs outright highest goalscorer in major tournaments (World Cup/EUROs â currently 10, level with Gary Lineker).
â Englandâs Raheem Sterling has attempted (32) and completed (18) more take-ons than any other player at EURO 2020. Seven of these have been in the opposition penalty area (the joint-most), one of which led to Englandâs penalty against Denmark in the semifinal which led to its winning goal.
â Only Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (15) has started more open play sequences ending in a shot than Italyâs Marco Verratti (9) so far at EURO 2020. On top of that, only Kevin De Bruyne (13) has created more chances at EURO 2020 than Verratti (12).

â Italyâs Roberto Mancini will be just the second manager to have won the English top-flight title to take charge of a European nation in a major tournament final (World Cup/EUROs), after Alf Ramsey who won the English top-flight title with Ipswich and the 1966 World Cup with England.
For all the differences in style and approach, there is a remarkable symmetry to the journeys taken by England and Italy towards Sunday’s Euro 2020 final.
Both nations found themselves at historic low points with fans despairing at their decline and then discovered men who could bring change and quickly lead them on a path to success.
For England, that nadir was elimination from Euro 2016 in the last 16 at the hands of Iceland while Italy’s despair came two years later when the four-time world champion failed to even qualify for the World Cup in Russia.
Gareth Southgate was not the man chosen to lead England’s revival. The FA had selected Sam Allardyce for that role but when his reign was cut short by ill-judged comments to a hidden camera, the Under-21 coach was given the job.

Southgate was able to draw on an exciting young generation of talent emerging from the Under-21 team and the academies of Premier League clubs but his most significant decision was to change the culture around the England team.
He was able to make an England call-up something players looked forward to rather than, as was too often the case in the past, a chore to be feared or avoided.
Southgate reset the often adversarial relationship with the media and also found a tone in his communications that found the perfect sweet spot between positivity and realism.
With the pressure off, England reached the last four at the 2018 World Cup and then, with more talent integrated into the squad, it methodically progressed through Euro 2020, paying little attention to the constant reminders of failures past.

Still, players in the squad who experienced the bitterness of failure and its fall-out know where they have come from.
“If I think about the last Euros, when we got knocked out by Iceland, that still haunts me and Iâd say thatâs the lowest moment of my career by far,” said right-back Kyle Walker.
âBut weâre a lot more mature now. A lot of us have played in more big games, weâve won more and we can manage games better,” he added.
Roberto Mancini had a different history to confront after Italy’s dismal qualifying campaign for Russia under Gian Piero Ventura ended with the humiliation of a playoff loss to Sweden.
Like Southgate, Mancini turned to youth, but his biggest impact has been on the style of football produced by the Azzurri.
Italy uses a 4-3-3 formation, with two playmakers in midfield, usually Jorginho and Marco Verratti, supporting two wingers who like to cut inside and full-backs pushing forward to offer width.
There has been a greater emphasis on aggressive pressing and the result has been one of the most enjoyable Italian teams to watch in years.
But Mancini’s revolution did not undermine the fundamentals and he was wise to keep the experience of Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci at the back, who maintain Italy’s traditional defensive strength.
While England has only once previously reached the final of a major tournament, also on home soil back in 1966, this will be Italy’s 10th major final and Mancini instilled in his team a belief that it could quickly rise back to the top.
“At the beginning, when he told us to have in our minds the idea of winning the Euro, we thought he was crazy,” says Chiellini.
“Instead, during these years he has created a team which is now on the brink of doing that. And as he has repeated to us after every match, ‘one centimetre at a time’, and now there is only the last centimetre left”.
The past record certainly favours Italy, which has never lost against England in four meetings at a major tournament and has been defeated once in eight competitive games with England.

But, set against that, a 60,000 overwhelmingly pro-England crowd awaits at Wembley, which in this tournament has become a hostile venue for visiting teams and is an environment Southgate’s team relish playing in.
There may be little to choose between the two starting lineups but England has stronger options from the bench as Chiellini noted.
“Their substitutes could all be in the starting eleven of a team that wins this competition. Players like (Jack) Grealish, (Jadon) Sancho, (Marcus) Rashford, (Dominic) Calvert-Lewin, (Phil) Foden were all on the bench but they’re top players, including (Jordan) Henderson â Liverpool’s captain.
“It will be a great match. Neither team will be afraid but both will have a lot of respect for each other.”
