Italy goalkeeper, Gianluigi Donnarumma has come out to explain why he didn’t celebrate after saving Bukayo Saka’s penalty in the Euro 2020 final. He recently revealed that he didn’t know saving the Arsenal midfielder’s penalty won the tie for Italy.
According to him, he was absolutely unaware of the scoreline in the shootout at that time and he was also down after Jorginho’s penalty miss.
The PSG goalie added that he also had to turn to the referee to ensure he didn’t break the rules while saving the penalty.
His words, “I didn’t celebrate on the penalty because I didn’t realise we had won,”
“I was already down after Jorginho’s missed penalty and I thought we had lost, but instead I had to continue.”
“Now, with VAR, they always look at your feet because you can’t be in front of the line, so I turned to the referee to see if everything was okay.”
“Then I saw my team-mates coming towards me and everything started from there. I didn’t understand anything!”
