The Euro 2020 Final saw England host Italy at Wembley Stadium. It was a chance for England to win their first major international tournament since the World Cup in 1966. The perennial underachievers had a superb team and entered the game as favorites against an erratic Italian side.
However, their manager Gareth Southgate made the fatal decision to sit back and protect an early 1-0 lead. This gave the Italians a chance to gain momentum and they equalized. Finally, the game went to extra-time and penalties. Three England stars missed their kicks as they wasted a generational opportunity (via The Guardian).
