Euro 2020 .. the best-scoring version in 45 years

The ended version of the European Nations Cup "Euro 2020" was known as the best scorer in 45 years, which was closed last Sunday evening, with the Italian team beating England 3-2 on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

With an average of 2.78 goals per game, Euro 2020 was the most prolific since 1976, French newspaper L'Equipe reported in a report.

142 goals were scored in 51 matches in the European Championship 2020, an average of 2.78 goals per match, which means that this number is 34 goals more than it was during 51 matches in the 2016 edition in France (108 goals).

The average goals per game in Euro 2020 is the highest since the 1976 edition (4.75), and thus the last edition surpassed the Euro 2000 tournament, which until now was considered a great offensive tournament.

The Italian team, the defending champion, reached a record number of goals in the history of its participation in the continental championships, the European Nations Cup and the World Cup.

According to the Opta network for numbers and statistics, Italy scored 13 goals in the current tournament, which is the highest score for the Azzurri in a single copy between the European Championship and the World Cup.
