History made as Italy win shootout

Berrettini watched Italy win a thriller after his nation finished in a 1-1 stalemate with host's England.

After progressing past Spain in a penalty shootout earlier in the tournament, Italy had to rewrite history as no side had ever won more than one shootout at a European championship.

Pickford gave England hope after guessing correctly to save Italy's second spot kick from Andrea Belotti.

After successful penalties from Harry Kane and Harry Maguire, England's Marcus Rashford missed after striking the post.

Fellow England substitute Jadon Sancho then saw his effort saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma but Pickford gave England a chance after stopping the usually dependable Jorginho.

It all rested on the young shoulders of 19-year-old Bukayo Saka to keep England in it, but the imposing Donnarumma telegraphed his spot kick to win it for Italy, leaving the football world in raptures.
