The UEFA named the EURO 2020 Team of the Tournament on Tuesday but the top scorers of this year’s European football contest, Cristiano Ronaldo and Patrik Schick, were not selected for the team.
European football’s governing body announced the best eleven of the EURO 2020 as there are five Italian players in it.
Gianluigi Donnarumma, Leonardo Bonucci, Leonardo Spinazzola, Jorginho, and Federico Chiesa were the Italian players named in the EURO 2020 Team of the Tournament.
