Italy wins the European soccer championship in 3-2 penalty shootout

Two soccer-mad nations faced each other, and one blinked. Italy bested England in the final of the Euro 2020 soccer tournament Sunday in London.

The winner was determined by a penalty shootout following extra time that kept the score even at 1 each.

Italy won the shoutout 3-2 after England’s final shot was blocked.

Italian player Jorge Luiz Frello Filho, known as Jorginho, missed the previous shot, blocked by English goalie Jordan Lee Pickford, sending the London crowd into frenzied cheering, but a first-time European championship for the host country wasn’t to be. Italy was already up 3-2, and the score remained.
