The codes of football collect that a change should never be made when it is going to defend a corner. Gareth Southgate knows that not written norm, but it did not matter. The extension already expired and had decided to put Rashford and Sancho in the field with the clear goal that they will launch two of the five penalties of a batch who already seemed inevitable. He did not find punishment in that corner of Italy, but his decision was over revealing as a fatal mistake. The two young fronts erred their releases and, although Jorginho and Pickford put excitement to the outcome, the last stop of Donnarumma to Saka confirmed the national catastrophe in England, the glory for an Italy forced to row countercurrent during the 120 minutes that the match lasted . It was the Selection of Mancini who took out from the center and, that is now the Azzurra, he prepared to braid a long possession, moving the starting ball between its plants and the mediocentro. Automatically, Wembley en masa started rugir to intimidate the selection that, curiously, played as a local. It was only about the paper, of course, because the crossings of St. George were overwhelming majority at the London Stadium. Never a country enjoyed so much support in an EUROCO final, thanks to restrictions on foreign travelers. Total, at all. Wembley finished exploding when, just 117 seconds, Luke Shaw inaugurated the score in favor of England. Never in the previous 15 finals of the Eurocopa, a goal had been marked with so much augment and achieved it the lateral of Manchester United in front of a selection that, beyond its aesthetic evolution, had shown great offensive solid throughout the tournament, Honored to his tradition. Everything seemed to lead to a glorious coronation of Three Lions. However, at the time of truth, England ended up failing by the Racanería with which its coach decided to manage all the talent it has at its disposal. He decided to look at the mirror of traditional Italy, in the most radical catenaccio, to defend Shaw's initial goal. Paradoxical election before a rival that has followed the opposite process in recent years, convinced after the collapse of him in 2017 that the way of all the life of him could not give him more revenue, which was exhausted. He retains part of his roots, there is the goal of Bonucci's draw after a corner kick, until survival in penalties thanks to an imperial goalie, but he has sought an evolution that Southgate decided to resign. Football has finished preriating the bravest selection of both. Italy thus collects the glory in a tournament that historically had been hostile. Tetracampeona of the world, the only continental degree that Lucia Lucia dated 1968, when the draws in the finals still were resolved with a tie-off game. Since then, he had only played two other finals, which he lost in the year 2000 against the France of Zidane and Henry and the remembered 2012, in which Spain revalidated with a 4-0 the title he had achieved four years before. And the curse continues for the selections that exercise from premises in a final. Like Portugal in 2004 and France in 2018, England fell defeated in its own country. Football is not coming home, calcium, now renovated, prevails.
