Euro 2020 Final: Keane slams England for sending Saka for final penalty


Euro 2020 final, Italy vs England: Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane remarked that the home side should not have given the fifth and deciding penalty to teenager Bukayo Saka.
Following England’s miserably show in the penalty shootout that eventually resulted in their defeat in the Euro 2020 final against England, former Manchester United captain Roy Keane remarked that the home side should not have given the fifth and deciding penalty to teenager Bukayo Saka.
Nineteen-year-old Saka, with the scoreline needing 3-2 in Italy’s favour, stepped up to take the final kick in a bid to draw England level. However, his shot was saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma. The Italian goalkeeper had also saved from Jadon Sancho after Marcus Rashford had hit the post.
Former footballer Keane said more experienced players should have stepped up and taken the responsibility.
“If you’re (Raheem) Sterling or (Jack) Grealish, you cannot sit there and have a young kid (Saka) go up for a penalty ahead of you,” former Ireland international Keane told ITV.
“They have a lot more experience, Sterling has won trophies, they had to get in front of the young kid and stand up.”
