Raheem Sterling, Harry Maguire and Kyle Walker have been named in the Euro 2020 team of the tournament.

England enjoyed an unforgettable run to a first ever European Championship final, where they suffered a heart-breaking penalty shoot-out loss to Italy on Sunday.

The triumphant Azzurri have five players in UEFA’s team of the tournament and Gareth Southgate’s men boast three, joined by one each from Belgium, Denmark and Spain.

England right-back Walker and centre-back Maguire have been named in defence along with Leonardo Bonucci, who was man of the match in the final, and Leonardo Spinazzola, who suffered an Achilles injury in the quarter-final.

Player of the tournament Gianluigi Donnarumma is goalkeeper, with Italy midfielder Jorginho joined by Denmark’s Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg and Spain’s 18-year-old Pedri, who was named young player of the tournament.

Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku and Italy star Federico Chiesa are joined in attack by England forward Sterling, who scored three goals during an impressive Euro 2020 campaign.

The selection was made by UEFA’s technical observer team comprised of 16 former players and coaches, including David Moyes, Packie Bonner and Robbie Keane.
