England fans have been left in agony after losing the Euro 2020 final in heartbreaking fashion – on dreaded penalties.
After two hours of football ended in deadlock, the game at Wembley Stadium was settled by a dreaded shootout.
It had looked so promising when, after just two minutes, Luke Shaw gave England an early lead – sending millions in pubs, living rooms and fan zones into raptures.
Among them was seven-year-old royal Prince George, who looked jubilant as the Three Lions went ahead.
But it was more subdued in the second half as the Italians drew level, with pictures showing tense fans up and down the country as it seemed the dream was slipping away.
Extra-time then passed without another goal, before the air was sucked out of Wembley as Bukayo Saka’s penalty was saved – giving Italy the win.
