As they say in these cases "It does not happen, but if it happens". Flags and trumpets were already ready before kick-off, waving through the streets of Italian cities in that long pilgrimage that took the fans to the places chosen to follow the Azzurri's latest venture. A silent march in full respect of superstition, among those Italy-England who saw it in religious silence where he had always followed all the matches and who perhaps did not even see it, convinced that a change of course compared to the previous six matches had changed the fate of an entire country.

Over 120 minutes of suffering, from Shaw's opening goal to Bonucci's equalizer, up to the now fixed appointment of penalties. Jorginho, then the Donnarumma parade and the start of the celebrations. The Italian cities were filled with cars and flags, the same ones that had timidly waved in the same streets hours before and which in a few minutes were transformed into a tricolor ocean.

Laurent Bentil recounted for nss magazine the celebrations in the streets of Milan, between horns and carousels that lasted all night.
