L’Italie est devenue championne d’Europe de football pour la deuxième fois de son histoire, après un premier sacre en 1968, en s’imposant aux tirs au but (1-1 a.p, 3-2 t.a.b.), dimanche soir au stade de Wembley à Londres.

Le latéral gauche anglais Luke Shaw a ouvert la marque à la 2e minute et le défenseur central italien Leonardo Bonucci a égalisé à la 67e. Le gardien italien Gianluigi Donnarumma a offert le titre aux Italiens en arrêtant un ultime tir au but anglais de Saka. L’Italie succède au Portugal, sacré en 2016 en France.
