England’s Luke Shaw had a historic goal in the second minute to give the Three Lions an immediate energy boost in the Euro 2020 final, but Italy has been the more aggressive team since that moment. Eventually, the attacking was going to pay off.

Veteran defender Leonardo Bonucci followed up Marco Verratti’s header, which bounced off the post, to put Italy on level terms. Bonucci has only scored nine goals in his international career, but none will be bigger than his latest.
