On Sunday July 11th, the Italian national soccer team won the final game in the 2020 European Soccer tournament against England. With a tied 1-1 score, Italy clenched the win in overtime with penalty kicks, successfully blocking England from the winning goal. Italian goalie Gianluigi Donnarumma, 22 received the player of the tournament award being the first goalie ever winning the title.
The excited cheering and roaring heard around the world was so intense that it was picked up as an earthquake on many devices in Rome (info from wantedinrome.com). The infectious thrill and excitement extended in all directions including right here in Brooklyn!
