Chelsea midfielder Jorginho: My penalty miss? It was planned!

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is happy to joke about his penalty miss in Italy's Euro 2020 final shootout victory over England.

Jorginho missed Italy's fifth penalty, but former AC Milan goalkeeper Gigio Donnarumma then saved his second of the shootout, denying Bukayo Saka to earn the win.

"It was all planned. I knew that Donnarumma would have saved it," Jorginho joked to SportTV. “I always give everything I have for the team, but unfortunately, sometimes it's not enough.

“I ended up missing the penalty, and in that moment the world collapsed around me, because I wanted to hand Italy the win.

“Luckily, we have this phenomenon in goal that saved me."
