heartbreaking shootout

Football goes to Rome! England’s 55 years of hurt go on after heartbreaking shootout

Italy have won the European Championship after beating England in a heartbreaking penalty shootout at Wembley.

Bukayo Sako, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho all missed from the spot as England’s spot-kick curse reared its ugly head once again.

England’s young stars were left in tears as a packed-out Wembley showed their appreciation, but the 55 year wait for another international trophy continues.

It was a particularly painful ending for manager Gareth Southgate, who missed the crucial penalty in Euro ‘96, and was unable to exorcise those demons 25 years on.
