After a month-long thrilling European football action, it has all come to an end, with Italy having the final laugh, winning its second European title after taming England in the UEFA Euro 2020 final at the Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday. However, besides England, there were other winners as well.
Meanwhile, one of the winners happened to be Portuguese sensation, Cristiano Ronaldo. Since he was the joint top-scorer for the tournament this season, having scored five goals along with Czech Republic's Patrik Schick, he was given the Golden Boot for the same.
