Gianluigi Donnarumma's Reaction To Saving Euro 2020 Winning Penalty Shows How Ice Cold He Is

Gianluigi Donnarumma was the coolest man at Wembley on Sunday night, proved by his lack of celebration after saving Bukayo Saka's penalty.

Donnarumma saved two penalties as Italy beat England in a shootout at Wembley, to win Euro 2020, getting to Jadon Sancho and Saka's attempts.

Whilst most people would have been going crazy having won the entire Euros for their country, securing it with the save from the Arsenal man, the former AC Milan keeper barely moved.

The 22-year-old simply walked away from the penalty spot calmly and was mobbed by teammates seconds later.


Whilst the age of VAR has meant that keepers have to be more wary of a penalty being retaken if their foot is off the line when one is taken, that didn't seem to be the issue here.

Donnarumma did turn back to look at the referee after a few seconds, just to make sure, but his whole demeanor was of a man who knew he'd done nothing wrong.

The rest of the Italy players were clearly far less calm than their teammate and who can blame them, after becoming the champions of Europe!

Donnarumma, who is expected to go to PSG after leaving Milan, also saved two penalties in the semi final shootout win against Spain.

The Italy number one was named Euro 2020 Player of the Tournament after the final as well, for his heroics in the latter stages.

No doubt he probably shrugged and walked away after collection the award, the man is unflappable by the looks of it!
