Donnarumma MVP, Juventus Leader in Scoring and Few Euro Records

Gianluigi Donnarumma was named the best player of the Euro right after the game. He addressed his last 50 days without a team to Sky: “They have been endless. I was very serene, my teammates have stayed close to me. I have pushed everything to the side. My concentration was 100 percent on the team and the coach. It ended up rewarding me. The experience helped me a lot.”

Juventus got another goal in the final, as Leonardo Bonucci equalized in the second half. They were the most prolific team of the Euro with 12 collective goals. Inter, Manchester City and Liverpool finished with 8, Atalanta with 7. The Old Lady, the Bergamaschi, Barcelona and Manchester City matched a previous record as they had five different scorers. Cristiano Ronaldo tied Patrick Schick for the Golden Shoe and took it home as he played in fewer matches. He broke away from Michel Platini (9) in the all-time chart as he has now 14 goals.

Euro 2020 registered few other all-time accomplishments. Three went into extra time but, between the qualifiers and the tournament, Italy won 17 matches in a row, which had never happened. Patrik Schick scored the longest goal in the history of the competition, as he bagged it from 45,4 meters out against Scotland. This edition had the most goals overall, as normal given the enlarged formula, but also the best highest scoring average per match. There were a record number of own goals as well, 10. At age 17, 7 months, and 34 days, Kacper Kozlowski was the youngest to debut.
