    Italy deserve Euro 2020 triumph | Racial abuse of England stars disgraceful and disgusting

    In the latest Eurosport vodcast in partnership with The Beautiful Game Podcast, Dotun Abijoh, Justin Cole and Pete Sharland react to the Euro 2020 final between England and eventual champions of the tournament Italy after all the drama at Wembley Stadium.
    From Italy's stunning triumph to England's disappointment on the biggest stage and, unfortunately, some lamentable behaviour from the home 'fans'.
    For all the positives to take from England's showing at the tournament and Italy's triumph, there was some lamentable behaviour - particularly with racial abuse aimed at the three players who missed penalties for the hosts, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka.
    The team also give their views on a number of other topics from the final, and indeed the tournament, including praise for the outstanding Italy team who ended up champions, England's prospects looking ahead to Qatar and debate as to whether Southgate should have approached things a bit differently in the final.

    This was the performance of the tournament - Praise for Denmark but worries for Belgium?

    This was the performance of the tournament - Praise for Denmark but worries for Belgium?

    In the latest Eurosport x The Beautiful Game podcast, producer Ola Fisayo picks up where he left off by resuming hosting duties alongside Dotun Abijoh and Deji Odedina to discuss the first half of the Last 16 matches of Euro 2020.
    The team begin by discussing the tie of the round, Belgium v Portugal. Was Thorgan Hazard's goal that good? Should Rui Patricio have done better? Plus how worried should we be about Belgium's injuries?
    Then we move on to the story of the round, Denmark hammering Wales. As for as Abijoh is concerned this was the best performance of the tournament so far. Just how far can Denmark go?
    There's also time for a quick chat on the street smarts of the Czech Republic and the disappointing Dutch, before we move on to looking forward to Monday's games and then revisiting who we think will reach the final.
