England just lost the euro 2020 final against Italy on a penalty shoot-out, nothing has changed then!
Italy did defeat England after a 3-2 penalty shoot-out win on Sunday July 11.
The pulsating game ended 1-1 after Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw opened the scoring for the Three Lions with a volley from close range after connecting with Kieran Trippier's inch-perfect cross in the first half.
Leonardo Bonucci leveled the scores for the Italians in the second half after tapping in from close range after England failed to deal with a corner-kick.
Two stunning saves from Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma denied Bukayo Saka and Jadon Sancho from scoring in the penalty shoot-out to help the Azzurri win.
