Fans were in a party mood after seeing their team win the Euros

The two team were tied 1-1 after 90 minutes and extra-time leading to the dreaded spot-kicks.

But England fluffed their lines - Marcus Rashford hitting the post and Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka seeing their efforts saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Italy missed two penalties themselves, but sneaked past Gareth Southgate's battle-weary troops.

It led to jubilant scenes in Italy as fans heralded the triumph.

Italy were embarrassed three years ago when they failed to qualify for the World Cup - but they were back on top of the world this weekend.

And their fans partied the night away on the streets of major cities with wild scenes in Rome.

Goalscorer on the night Leonardo Bonucci took particular delight in guiding the Azzurri home.

He looked into the camera and screamed as he celebrated winning Euro 2020 at Wembley.

With Italy's fate confirmed, Bonucci looked into the camera and shouted: "It's coming to Rome! It's coming to Rome!"

He then went on to celebrate with his international team-mates after winning the Azzurri's second European title.

Bonucci's comments are a response to England's 'it's coming home' chant, sung every time the Three Lions do well at a major tournament.

Rome is the Italian capital, with England fans previously chanting 'it's coming Rome' when they played Ukraine in the quarter-final.

Bonucci, who was part of the team that lost the Euro 2012 final to Spain nine years ago, had an evening to remember as Italy were victorious.

The Juventus star scored Italy's equaliser, cancelling out Luke Shaw's second-minute opener.
