Euro 2020 Final- Italy vs England LIVE: Luke Shaw scores fastest goal ever in a EURO final; Watch video- England player Luke Shaw has scored the fastest goal in a Euro Final. He took just 1 minute and 57 seconds to provide England early lead over Italy.

After early inroads from Italy, England’s fast counterattack had no answer for Azurri. Harry Kane floated a pass for Kevin Trippier who sent in a lovely cross for a completely unmarked Luke Shaw on the left. With just the goalkeeper to beat from a tight angle, the Manchester United full-back’s powerful left-footed half-volley beat Gianluigi Donnarumma in the goal to give England the lead and stun millions of Italy fans watching the game across the world.

Italy and England moved into extra time in their Euro 2020 final with the score level at 1-1 after 90 minutes at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

Italy won the European Championship for the first time since 1968 as Gianluigi Donnarumma saved two England penalties en route to a 3-2 shootout win after the teams had fought out a 1-1 extra-time draw at a raucous Wembley on Sunday.

England struck the fastest goal in a Euro final when, after breaking out from an Italy corner, Harry Kane fed Kieran Trippier on the right and his glorious cross was drilled home first time by left back Luke Shaw after one minute 57 seconds.

But Italy drew level in the 67th when England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford pushed Marco Verratti’s header against the post and Leonardo Bonucci pounced to slot in the loose ball.

Kane will become only the second England captain after Bobby Moore to lift a major trophy if Gareth Southgate’s men defeat Italy at Wembley.
Notably, Italy has never lost to England at major finals, with 2-1 FIFA World Cup victories in 1990 (third-place play-off) and 2014 (group stage) on top of those EURO triumphs.
