Thousands of football fans have flocked to Melbourne's Lygon Street to watch Italy beat England in the Euro 2020 final, following a nail-biting penalty shootout.

Early on Monday morning, fans packed into cafes and bars on the strip known as Little Italy to watch the game.

A projector was also set up in Piazza Italia, in the Argyle Gardens, where flares were lit as a save from Gianluigi Donnarumma sealed the game for Italy.

Victoria Police officers, including the public order response team, are monitoring the situation. They expect the party to last into the late morning.
