Dhe feat had just been accomplished. But Gianluigi Donnarumma did not respond. He had just saved the decisive penalty in the European Championship final, England’s Bukayo Saka aimed in the right corner, Italy’s goalkeeper jumped in the same direction and held the ball. Italy had become European champions at that moment, but the giant just got up, with no expression , almost sad face, and looked into the stands of London’s Wembley Stadium, and thus almost only into horrified faces.
A football drama had taken place among youngsters. Saka, 19 years old, missed. Before that, England’s Jadon Sancho, 21 years old, failed because of Donnarumma. He’s only 22 years old, but he’s already acting like a veteran. The goalkeeper had already saved a penalty in the semifinals against Spain with peace of mind. “Donnarumissimo”, wrote the newspaper La Repubblica on Monday.
