Italy

managed to beat

England

in the penalty shootouts on Sunday in the final match of the delayed Euro 2020 and got their hands on the championship silverware.

Italy goalkeeper and the Player of the Tournament,

Gianluigi Donnarumma

, played a major role in the Azzurri’s championship by saving two penalties in the final penalty kicks.

“We are happy, we are enjoying every second,”

Donnarumma told Sky Sport Italia.

“It’s been 50 days but they flew, because we had a great time together.”

He added:

“I still have to realize everything. Tomorrow, I will go home and enjoy the whole family. My piece of mind has been part of what I have lived over the years.

“I have treasured what I have lived and it has become experience. Peace of mind has always been my strength, but experience helps a lot. Both when things go well and when things go wrong.”

The 22-year-old shot-stopper did not celebrate after he saved Saka’s decisive penalty. However, he then admitted that he didn't realize they had won the game.

“I didn’t celebrate because I didn’t realize we had won.

“I looked at the referee, I tried to understand if VAR had given the OK and I only realized we had won when I saw my teammates celebrating.”
