And now, famously harsh L’Equipe have had their say on how the players performed in the crunch clash.
It’s fair to say the French publication were less-than impressed by the final.
Unsurprisingly, Player of the Tournament Donnarumma was the highest-rated player on the pitch.
The Italy goalkeeper, 22, was given an 8/10 – very high for L’Equipe – after he saved two penalties in the all-important shootout.
Donnarumma saved efforts from Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka – with Marcus Rashford also hitting the post.
Goalscorer Leonardo Bonucci and the dangerous Federico Chiesa both earned 7/10s.
But full-backs Emerson and Giovanni Di Lorenzo were given just 5s, with Nicolo Barella earning just a 4 – with the rest of the team given 6/10.
