At least 19 police officers were injured during the Euro 2020 final between Italy and England, British police reported on Sunday.

Forty-nine people were ALSO arrested after fans clashed with each other near Wembley stadium as England lost the Euro 2020 final.

British police confirmed the 19 officers were wounded “while they confronted volatile crowds”.

Spokesperson for Wembley Stadium Scotland Yard tweeted: “Our policing operation for the Euro2020 final is drawing to a close. Thank you to the tens of thousands of fans who had good spirits and behaved responsibly.

“We made 49 arrests during the day for a variety of offences. We will have officers on hand throughout the night.

“Frustratingly, 19 of our officers were injured while they confronted volatile crowds. This is wholly unacceptable.”

Italy won the European Championship for the second time by beating England 3-2 on penalties on Sunday.

The match finished 1-1 after extra time at Wembley Stadium, which was filled mostly with English fans hoping to celebrate the team’s first international trophy since the 1966 World Cup.

That was England’s third straight failure from the penalty spot in the shootout, with Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho — players brought on late in extra time seemingly as specialist penalty-takers — also missing.
