However, the Three Lions were held to a 1-1 draw in normal and extra time, with Luke Shaw’s goal cancelled out by Leonardo Bonucci’s equalizer before the Azzurri prevailed on penalties, ensuring Ronaldo’s victory just hours after his great rival Lionel Messi’s victory with Argentina in the Copa America.
Ciro Immobile, Matteo Pessina, Manuel Locatelli, and Federico Chiesa, among many others, all scored for Roberto Mancini’s team.
