Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “UEFA Euro 2020: Italians Celebrate Victory in Rome” – below is their description.

Celebrations erupted in downtown Rome as thousands took to the streets after Italy beat England in a penalty shootout to win the European Championship at Wembley Stadium in London. Fireworks lit the sky as cars honked non-stop and ecstatic fans waving Italian flags spilled out of the Piazza del Popolo where they had watched the match on big screens.

They chanted “we are champions of Europe,” danced in the streets and set off flares as police stood watch nearby.

Italy won the European Championship in 1968 but has also won four World Cup titles.

The most recent was in 2006.

England was trying to win its first title in Euro 2020.

After failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the country has now set a new national record by going 34 games unbeaten.

The evening ended in celebration as Donnarumma saved the last penalty, bringing Italy on top of Euro 2020.
