Italy wins Euro 2020, beats England in penalty shoot-out
By Associated Press
 
LONDON, July 12: Italian soccer’s redemption story is complete.
 England’s painful half-century wait for a major title goes on. And it
 just had to be because of a penalty shootout.
 Italy won the European Championship for the second time by 
beating England 3-2 on penalties on Sunday. The match finished
 1-1 after extra time at Wembley Stadium, which was filled mostly 
with English fans hoping to celebrate the team’s first international 
trophy since the 1966 World Cup.
 
“It’s coming to Rome. It’s coming to Rome,” Italy defender Leonardo
Bonucci shouted into a TV camera amid the celebrations, mocking the famous lyric “it’s
 coming home”
from the England team’s anthem.
For England, it was utter dejection again — they know the feeling so well when it
comes to penalties — after Gianluigi Donnarumma, Italy’s imposing goalkeeper, dived
to his left and saved the decisive spot kick by 19-year-old Londoner Bukayo Saka, one
of the youngest players in England’s squad.
That was England’s third straight failure from the penalty spot in the shootout, with
Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho — players brought on late in extra time seemingly
as specialist penalty-takers — also missing.
As Saka and Sancho cried, Donnarumma was mobbed by his teammates as they
sprinted toward him from the halfway line at the end of the second penalty shootout in
a European Championship final.
Then Italy’s jubilant players headed to the other end of the field and ran as one, diving
to the ground in front of the Italian fans who have witnessed a rebirth of their national
team.
It was less than four years ago that Italy plunged to the lowest moment of its soccer
history by failing to qualify for the World Cup for the first time in six decades. Now,
they are the best team in Europe and on a national-record 34-match unbeaten run under
Roberto Mancini, their suave coach who has won an international trophy in his first
attempt to add to the country’s other European title — in 1968 — and its four World
Cups.
Mancini joined his players on the podium as Italy captain Giorgio Chiellini lifted the
Henri Delaunay trophy to the backdrop of fireworks and tickertape.
“It was impossible even to just consider this at one stage,” Mancini said, “but the guys
were just amazing. I have no words for them.”
For England, it’s the latest heartache in shootouts at major tournaments, after defeats
in 1990, 1996, 1998, 2004, 2006 and 2012. They ended that losing streak by beating
Colombia on penalties in the round of 16 at the 2018 World Cup, but the pain has
quickly returned.
“The boys couldn’t have given more,” England captain Harry Kane said. “Penalties
are the worst feeling in the world when you lose. It’s been a fantastic tournament — we
should be proud, hold our heads up high. It’s going to hurt now; it’s going to hurt for
a while.”
England’s first major final in 55 years had all started so well, too, with Luke Shaw
scoring the fastest goal in a European Championship final by meeting a cross from
opposite wing back Kieran Trippier with a half-volley that went in off the post in the
second minute.
It was Shaw’s first goal for England and it prompted a fist-pump between David English: Grade 12 19
Beckham and Tom Cruise in the VIP box amid an explosion of joy around Wembley,
which had at least 67,000 fans inside. Maybe more, given dozens of ticketless England
fans managed to barge their way past stewards and police and into the stadium in
unsettling scenes before kickoff.
That was the only time Italy’s famously robust defense was really opened up in the
entire 120 minutes.
Indeed, after Shaw’s goal, England barely saw the ball for the rest of the game.
Italy’s midfielders dominated possession, as widely predicted before the match, and
England simply resorted to dropping deep and getting nine or even all 10 outfield
players behind the ball. It was reminiscent of the 2018 World Cup semifinals, when
England also scored early against Croatia then spent most of the game chasing its
opponent’s midfield before losing in extra time.
Italy’s equalizer was merited and Bonucci was the unlikely scorer. He put the ball in
from close range after a right-wing corner was flicked on to Marco Verratti, whose
stooping header was tipped onto the post by goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
England managed to hold on for extra time — the way three of the last six European
finals went — and actually had the better of the final stages.
Just not the shootout, again.
After the misses of Rashford — he stuttered up to the ball and then hit the post — and
Sancho, whose shot was saved by Donnarumma again down to his left, Jorginho had
the chance to win it for Italy.
Incredibly, the midfielder who converted the decisive penalty in a shootout win over
Spain in the semifinals also failed to score as Pickford tipped the effort off the post.
It was Donnarumma who then made the crucial saves and within minutes he had also
been named player of the tournament, the first goalkeeper to be so honored.
So instead of coming home, the trophy is headed to Rome.
“We’d heard it day in, day out from Wednesday night — we heard it would be coming
home to London,” Bonucci said. “I’m sorry for them, but the cup will be taking a nice
flight, making its way to Rome so Italians all over the world can savor this.”

Working with words

A. Many English words are from other languages, such as redemption in the
news above comes from the Latin word redimere, a combination of re(d)-,
meaning “back,” and emere, meaning “buy.”
 
Now, find out the origin and the meaning of the following words from the text.
penalty         major                 stadium               trophy                 defender
anthem         dejection           jubilant                record                  suave
podium         tournament        reminiscent         incredible             savor
 
 
B. Consult a dictionary and define the following terms related to cricket.
Example:
wicket: two sets of three sticks standing in the ground with pieces of wood lying
 
stump         crease         boundary         sixer         googly         leg-bye
wicket         maiden         pitch         power-play     no-ball         yorker

C. Pronunciation

pronunciation /aɪ/ and /eɪ/.
fine, shine, rein, rail, why, sleigh, height, bright, might, snail, break, fake, five,
freight, eight, game, claim, friend, sight, white, gait, by, hail, frame

b. Italy bagged its first Euro Cup trophy in the Euro Cup 2020.
c. The English team has won more trophies in International Football than

Why?
e. State the contribution of Roberto Mancini to the Italian football.
f. How does the Euro Cup final 2020 remind the audiences of the 2018 World
Cup semifinals? How?
 

Critical thinking

a. “Every match is a new opportunity. Put its failure behind and start over again.”
Does this apply to the Italian football team when we analyse their performance
from their failure to qualify for the World Cup Football to their victory in the
European Championship in these four years?

Back in 2018, Italy plunged to the lowest moment of its soccer history by failing to qualify for the World Cup for the first time in six decades. It was shocking for Italy – a four-time World Champion – to not qualify for the one tournament that has bound their country’s legacy as one of the elites in world football. Now, they are the best team in Europe and on a national-record 34-match unbeaten run under Roberto Mancini, their suave coach who has won an international trophy in his first attempt to add to the country’s other European title in 1968.

Despite the failure at the 2018 world cup, Italy did not lose hope. Rather they started to focus on improving and enhancing players and managing the team. Roberto Mancini, took his step forward when he picked youths, energetic soccer players and started to build them for the national team. Italy’s transformation under Mancini in the last three years has been extraordinary. And they were made to fight all the way against Spain, taking the lead through Federico Chiesa’s brilliant goal but being pegged back as Alvaro Morata’s equaliser made it 1-1 and forced extra time before the Azzurri prevailed 4-2 on penalties. The players wanted to play a brand of football that people enjoyed and thus far they have managed to do exactly that.

The Italian team were more focused on defensive football. Mancini used to say ’I love to win with 1-0 ’. The belief of the coach and the encouragement he gave to his players help Italy to stand out and lift the trophy of Euro Cup 2021.

Failure is an approach to learn, where Italy learnt their mistake of weak team management and player development. They progressively brought changes on their team ensuring every player in their team give their best on the field.

 
 
 
 
b. When a team plays in a home ground, it gets a huge support from the audience
in the stadium. Does this support them to win the match or the players may feel
pressure to win and thus lose? What do you think?

Argentina beat Brazil to win Copa America
by Reuters
RIO DE JANEIRO, July 10
first major title in 28 years
first medal for Lionel Messi in a blue-and-white shirt
Di Maria goal gave them a 1-0 win over Brazil
15th Copa America equal to Brazil
Brazil piled on the pressure but they could not get an equaliser
Brazil – more aggressive in the second half
Argentine defence – outstanding
 

Argentina won their first major title in 28 years and Lionel Messi finally won his first medal in a blue-and-white shirt when an Angel Di Maria goal gave them a 1-0 win over Brazil and a record-equalling 15th Copa America. Di Maria, starting for just the second time in the Copa, justified his selection by scoring the opener midway through the first half. Brazil piled on the pressure in an exciting second half but even with five strikers on the field, they could not get an equaliser against an Argentine defence protected by the outstanding Rodrigo De Paul. In the second half, Brazil fired their aggressive attack but the defence of Argentina became their obstacle. Argentina was playing defensively and tending to lift the trophy.
