The European Football Association (UEFA) on Tuesday named five players from champions Italy, and three players from runner-up England, in the perfect squad for Euro 2020.
Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, winner of the Player of the Tournament award, along with defensive duo Leonardo Bonucci and Leonardo Spinazzola, midfielder Jorginho and winger Federico Chiesa were selected in the perfect squad.
Italy won the European Championship for the first time since 1968 after Donnarumma saved two attempts from the penalty spot on the way to a 3-2 victory over England on penalties after the two teams tied 1-1 after extra time in the final on Sunday.
The ideal squad chosen by a UEFA technical committee also included England right-back Kyle Walker, central defender Harry Maguire, and striker Raheem Sterling.
Spain midfielder Pedri, who won the award for the best young player in the tournament, was also included in the ideal squad, along with Denmark’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku.
Sterling scored three goals with England, while Lukaku scored four goals with Belgium, who were eliminated in the quarter-finals by Italy.
