Italy deserved to become European football champions. The final was won by coach Roberto Mancini’s team against England on penalties 3-2.
But who was the best player in the tournament? For Uefa it was Italy’s goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma (22).
But Brazil’s legend Roberto Carlos (48) saw another player at the front. For him, England professional Luke Shaw (26) was the “best player of the tournament,” he told the magazine GQ. Carlos added: “He has to keep that and keep playing. This is important.”

The former Brazilian international (125 caps) had nothing but praise for the whole English team.
Carlos: “I saw the entire European Championship and England played very well. Losing is part of the game and part of football and I hope that they will be good again at the World Cup. If you keep this standard, you deserve to win a title. “
It is no coincidence that he liked left-back Shaw so much. Both are similar, the Englishman even got the nickname “Shawberto Carlos” at his club Manchester United.

In the interview, Carlos dared to take a look at the World Cup next year and said which stars he sees in the center: “I think it will be the same players as always: Kylian Mbappe, Nicolo Barella, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi and of course Neymar. “
