In the summer of 2021, Italy won the European Championship final against England on penalties. Tonight, the English had to take revenge when European Championship qualifying began in Naples. Declan Rice sent in 1–0 in the first half after a corner.
Close before the half-time break, England expanded, and that through Harry Kane. The attacking star made history when he put in 2–0 from the penalty spot. With the goal, Kane has scored the most international goals in England history.
The striker passed Wayne Rooney, who previously held the record of 53 international goals scored during his career.
Mateo Retegui certainly reduced in the second half, but it wasn't enough for Italy to find their way back into the game. Instead, during the closing stages of the match, English left-back Luke Shaw stole the headlines.
First, the 27-year-old was warned of masking – and 54 seconds later he received his second yellow card after a tough tackle.
In the same European Championship qualifying group as England and Italy, North Macedonia, Ukraine and Malta also play.
