Five players from champion Italy and three from runner-up England were named in the Euro 2020 team of the tournament announced by European football's governing body UEFA on Tuesday.

Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma -- who was named the Player of the tournament -- along with defenders Leonardo Bonucci and Leonardo Spinazzola, midfielder Jorginho and winger Federico Chiesa were all selected in the line-up.

Italy won the Euros for the first time since 1968 as Donnarumma saved two England penalties en route to a 3-2 shootout win after the teams had fought out a 1-1 extra-time draw in Sunday's final at Wembley.
