Gianluigi Donnarumma revealed he was
unaware Italy had beaten England when making the decisive save on Bukayo Saka's penalty in the Euro 2020 final.
The 22-year-old also kept out Jadon Sancho's attempt from the spot, while Marcus Rashford hit the post, as Italy prevailed 3-2 on penalties following a 1-1 draw after extra time at Wembley.
Donnarumma's reaction to saving Saka's attempt was muted, with the goalkeeper calmly walking away before being mobbed by his team-mates.
But he has explained his response to helping Italy clinch their first European Championship crown since 1968 was due to him losing track of the score, rather than being in complete control of his emotions.
"I didn't realise we had won," he told Sky Sport Italia.
"I looked at the referee and tried to understand if everything was okay.
"Then I turned to my team-mates and they ran towards me. From there everything started. I didn't understand anything."
