UEFA, immediately after Italy was declared European champions, chose goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma as the best player of Euro 2020. But according to OPTA statistics, he is not the best goalkeeper, but his rival in the final, Pickford.
According to OPTA statistics, Pickford has managed to keep the gate intact in 5 matches, an absolute record in the history of a European. There is no doubt that the “azzurri” are not missing in the best formation, as they include Leonardo Bonucci, Jorginho and Marco Verratti.
With the 4-3-3 scheme, we have these players: the center duo is formed by the Stones and Bonuci. On the wings, on the right is Kyle Walker, the defender who has recovered more balls (37) and made more passes in the rivals’ half (161).

On the right is the Danish defender, Joakim Maehle, the defender who has thrown the most balls in the opponents’ area (27). The midfield is formed by Verrati-Jorginho and Pedri, the latter being the youngest player in European history to start as a starter in 6 games.
Verrati is the player who has created the most goal-scoring stocks for his teammates (14), while Jorginho is the player who has recovered the most balls (25). The attacking trio is formed by Patrik Schick with 5 goals scored.
Kasper Dolberg, the player with the highest percentage of goals per minute, and Sterling, the player with the most dribbles (20). Remains out Cristiano Ronaldo, who won the Golden Shoe.
