As Italy celebrated their victory over England in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday, one person was killed and numerous more were wounded.

After a 1-1 draw in normal and extra time, Italy won the title in London for the first time since 1968 with a 3-2 penalty shootout victory.

According to authorities, a 22-year-old man died in a vehicle accident in Caltagirone, Sicily, while he was hurrying to the town center to join victory celebrations.

When the post-match celebration in Milan got violent, 15 individuals were injured, three of them badly. One of them lost three fingers when a firework exploded in his hand.

Police believe a hitman took advantage of the turmoil in the streets in a city near the southern city of Foggia to settle a score, shooting his target amid the throng before fleeing on a motorcycle.

The victim’s six-year-old niece was also injured in the incident, and she was said to be in “extremely critical” condition by the media.
