Italy’s national football team were crowned champions of the UEFA Euro 2020 tournament on Sunday after Federico Bernardeschi scored the winning goal during the penalties shoot-out.

Marking England’s first final at an international tournament since 1966, and the quickest-ever goal at a European championship final from England left-back Luke Shaw, it was a historic match.

As the action unfolded on the pitch, fans of both Italy and England made sure to go the extra mile in support of their chosen team. While the stands at Wembley saw one man dressed as Pope Francis, another dyed the England flag into his beard.

Elsewhere across the country, one woman rocked the England lion on her head, while another was pictured watching the match in an England-themed bra.

Thousands of young fans turned out in support of England today, many of them with the team’s flag painted on their faces. This young boy added a fedora hat to complete his look

Another young fan, this boy stood out from the crowd in a red and white curly wig. If his choice of headwear wasn’t enough to show which side he was on, he also wore the squad’s official t-shirt.
