Euro 2020- UEFA Team of the Tournament

Cristiano Ronaldo, the Golden Boot winner at Euro 2020, was left out of UEFA’s Team of the Tournament, which was dominated by finalists England and Italy.

The starting lineup was goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, defenders Leonardo Bonucci and Leonardo Spinazzola, midfielder Jorginho, and winger Federico Chiesa, who was voted Player of the Tournament.

After a 1-1 extra-time stalemate in Sunday’s final at Wembley, Donnarumma stopped two England penalties en way to a 3-2 shootout victory for Italy, which won the Euros for the first time since 1968.
