Next to Mancini, these are the reason why Italy won the Euro 2020 title

The Italian national team wrote a historic football epic that ended with its crowning of the European Nations Cup "Euro 2020", which was hosted by 11 countries, in a precedent that did not occur in the history of major tournaments for teams.

Many teams have written success stories during the Euro competitions, while other teams have moved away from the scene, either unexpectedly or with a surprising and surprising scenario, the most prominent example of the latter being the world champion France.

We review the 4 most prominent players besides coach Mancini who helped the Azzurri in "Euro 2020":

Gianluigi Donnarumma

Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is considered one of the biggest winners of Euro 2020. On a personal level, the European Nations Cup was his first major tournament, and he became the first goalkeeper other than Gianluigi Buffon, since Euro 2000, to defend the Azzurri shirt in a major tournament.

Donnarumma responded to the skeptics of all kinds during the euro, the first of whom was the fans of his former team AC Milan, who accused him of seeking money for his agreement to move to Paris Saint-Germain in a free transfer and not renewing his contract.

On the field, he managed to respond with three clean sheets and amazing saves throughout the tournament, the most important of which was in the penalty shootout during the semi-final and final matches, and his response to the dangerous attacks of the Belgium team in the quarter-finals.

Steel duo Bonucci and Chiellini


The strong defensive duo of the Italian national team succeeded in writing their names in letters of light in the battalion of the best Italian defenders in history with Fabio Cannavaro, Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, Alessandro Nesta and others.

The heroic performance of Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini, despite the violence on the part of the latter in particular in many scenes, had an important and undeniable impact on the coronation of the Italians.

The tournament, with everything in it, represented compensation for them for a journey full of disappointments, whether with Juventus this season or with the Italian national team in previous years. Rather, their brilliance nominated them to be in the next World Cup, as the first news published after the Italian crowning the Euro was that the Bianconeri administration decided to renew Chiellini for a new year. Until 2022.


Leonardo Spinazzola, the left back of the Italian national team, gave an impressive performance during the tournament's journey, but the injury prevented him from completing his career until the Euro 2020 final.

Spinazzola, the Italian national team player, won the award for the best player twice, in his country's victory over his Austrian counterpart with two goals against a goal, in the second round of 16 matches of the European Nations Cup "Euro 2020" after he made the first goal for the Italian team, which was scored by Federico Chiesa.

The Roma player also won the award for the best in the current European Championship, after winning the award in the opening match, in which the Azzurri team defeated its Turkish counterpart by three.

Federico Chiesa

 Federico Chiesa, the winger of the Italian national team, the striker, outperformed everyone, including his father, Enzo, the former “Azzurre” player in the European Nations Cup, by scoring two goals in the current edition of the continental competition, as the Italian team qualified for the Euro 2020 final, after achieving a difficult victory over his Spanish counterpart. 4-2 on penalties.

Federico Chiesa made history twice, the first when he scored Italy's first goal against Austria (2-1) in the quarter-finals of the European Nations Cup "Euro 2020", becoming the first player to score a goal after his father in the history of the European Nations Cup finals.

Juventus star Federico Chiesa entered history again, after he broke his father's record today, by scoring his second personal goal in the European Nations Cup, by scoring the goal for his country against Spain.

Roberto Mancini

The elegant Roberto Mancini, who took over the Italian national team in May 2018, after the disaster of failing to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1958, revived Italian football.

Since winning the 2006 World Cup in Germany, Italy has suffered a lot in the major tournaments, as it did not go beyond the first round in the 2010 and 2014 World Cups before failing in 2018 to qualify from the ground up, while in the Euro it qualified for the 2012 final to receive the biggest loss in the history of finals 0-4, and then called 2016 quarter-final against Germany.

Mancini led Italy to the biggest unbeaten streak in its history with 34 matches after meeting England.

Mancini relied on a group of young stars such as Gianluigi Donnarumma, Federico Chiesa and Jorginho, along with experienced Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci, to form a team that is in every sense of the word invincible.

Mancini took advantage of the failures of major candidates such as France, Germany and Portugal, and finished himself on giant teams such as Belgium, Spain and finally England.
