Celebrations erupted in downtown Rome as thousands of people took to the streets after Italy beat England in a penalty shootout to win the European Championship at Wembley Stadium in London.

Fireworks lit the sky as cars honked non-stop and ecstatic fans waving Italian flags spilled out of the Piazza del Popolo where they had watched the match on big screens.

They chanted “we are champions of Europe,” danced in the streets and set off flares as police stood watch nearby.

Riot police are trying to disperse crowds outside Wembley Stadium after England lost a penalty shootout to Italy in the European Championship final.

Beer bottles have been thrown and police are standing by. England fans are chanting songs against Italy.

London police say there had been 45 arrests by officers policing the final.

This year’s European Championship has been the highest scoring edition in the tournament’s modern era.

Leonardo Bonucci’s 67th-minute goal for Italy in the final was the 142nd of the 51-game Euro 2020 tournament.

That’s an average of 2.79 goals per game.

It was only 2.12 per game at Euro 2016. The most goals in a modern edition was the average of 2.74 at Euro 2000. There were 31 games at that tournament.

There were higher goals per game averages when tournaments involved only four teams from 1960 to 1976.

Prince William has congratulated Italy after the team won the European Championship and says England’s players should be “so proud” of themselves for their efforts.

Italy beat England 3-2 in a penalty shootout following a 1-1 draw at Wembley Stadium.

William is the president of the English Football Association. He wrote on Twitter “Heartbreaking. Congratulations @Azzurri on a great victory.”

He says to England “sadly this time it wasn’t our day. You can all hold your heads high.”

Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo has finished as the top scorer at the European Championship with five goals.

Ronaldo had the same number of goals as Czech Republic forward Patrik Schick but the Portuguese great will get the award because he had an assist.

Portugal was eliminated from the tournament after losing to Belgium 1-0 in the round of 16.

Gianluigi Donnarumma became the first goalkeeper to win player of the tournament at the European Championship after Italy beat England in penalty shootout in the final at Wembley Stadium.

Fans without tickets have stormed past security and gained access to the European Championship final between England and Italy.

Wembley Stadium says “there was a breach of security and a small group of people got into the stadium.”

Fans could be seen standing in the stadium bowl unable to access their seats.

Wembley’s statement says officials “are now working closely with stadium stewards and security to remove these people. Anyone inside the stadium without a ticket will be instantly ejected.”

The 90,000-seat Wembley has a pandemic-restricted capacity of about 67,000.

England is leading Italy 1-0 at halftime in the European Championship final after wingback Luke Shaw scored in the second minute.

Italy had a chance for an equalizer in the eighth minute but forward Lorenzo Insigne’s free kick sailed over the crossbar. Federico Chiesa came closer in the 35th when the winger made a forward run but his shot went just wide of the near post.

Luke Shaw’s goal for England was the quickest scored in a European Championship final.

Shaw scored 1 minute, 57 seconds into the match against Italy at Wembley Stadium.

A huge inflatable trophy was brought onto the field as a light show and pyrotechnics got things going. Soldiers in bearskin hats played long trumpets. Dancers then got the crowd fired up.

England players have taken the field for their warmup with about 35 minutes until kickoff in the European Championship final against Italy.

A light drizzle is coming down with just over an hour before kickoff.

England has changed its formation to a 3-4-3 and recalled Kieran Trippier for the European Championship final against Italy.

Winger Bukayo Saka dropped out of the team to accommodate the inclusion of Trippier at right wing back.

Mason Mount will move into the three-man forward line alongside Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane.

The change of system will be regarded as a defensive move by England coach Gareth Southgate. He did something similar for the 2-0 win over Germany in the round of 16.

Italy has selected the same team that started against Spain in the semifinals.

Italy’s players walked onto the field at Wembley Stadium in street clothes soon after England ahead of the European Championship final.

Fans outside Wembley Stadium have tried to get into the stadium through a low barrier for the European Championship final between England and Italy.

Stewards and police sought to hold the fans back as they pushed through barriers.

A Wembley statement says officials “are dealing with an incident that occurred at the outer security perimeter area of the stadium.”

The statement adds that “safety measures were quickly activated in the relevant areas and there were no security breaches of people without tickets getting inside the stadium.”

England players in sweatsuits have walked around the field at Wembley Stadium to the cheers of their fans before the European Championship final against Italy.

England captain Harry Kane walked out first with his hands in his sweatpants. He looked calm as he took it all in.
