A month of exhilarating football ended last night at Wembley in elation for Italian fans and despair for the English. Initially shocked by England's perfect start which saw Luke Shaw hammer home a perfect cross from Kieran Trippier in the second minute, Italy worked their way back into the game and gradually came to dominate, particularly in the second half when their pressure eventually yielded a goal to Leonardo Bonucci. 1-1 after extra time led to the nailbiting ritual of penalties, won 3-2 by Italy after three misses from England.
Whatever emotions you're feeling today, thank you for playing Superbru with us for the tournament! It was a joy to see the platform come alive again after months of Covid-related uncertainty: 4,516,899 picks were made across the tournament, including 11,420 for a draw in the final and 7,640 1-1 exacts.
The truly global appeal of football was evident, with players from 172 countries or territories taking part, from Bhutan to Brazil and Peru to Poland. This was evident in the global leaderboard, with our global champion, "2 Goals 1 Cup", an England fan on his Superbru debut, being based in Japan, and being followed up by players situated in the UK, Romania, Nepal and Portugal. Well done all!
