The national team struggles but wins at Wembley in the round of 16 of the 2020 European Championships. It takes extra time to unblock the Azzurri who go 2-0 with goals from Federico Chiesa and Matteo Pessina in the first half of the extra time. But Austria, who had an offside goal canceled by the var in the ninety minutes of regulation, managed to close the gap in the second overtime with Sasa Kalajdzic. The last minutes with the Austrian siege were anxious, but the Azzurri defense held up. Next stop in Monaco for the quarter-finals.
