Italy – England
It’s Euro 2020 final time. Italy face England at Wembley and you can be sure there will be a raucous atmosphere in London on Sunday. Italy are unbeaten in 33 matches, last losing a game back in September 2018, when they lost 1-0 to Portugal.
Italy set out their intentions to leave a lasting impression at Euro 2020 in the first game at the competition as they kicked off the tournament with a resounding 3-0 victory over Turkey. The Azzurri followed that up with comfortable wins over Switzerland and Wales as they topped Group A with maximum points and no goals conceded. However, they were taken to exra time against Austria in the last-16, as goals from Federico Chiesa and Matteo Pessina secured a 2-1 win. They repeated the result against Belgium in the quarter-finals, and secured their place in the Euro 2020 final in a penalty shootout semi-final success over Spain.
England weren’t as spectacular as the Italians in Group D. The Three Lions barely had to get out of second gear to beat Croatia 1-0 at Wembley last month. Gareth Southgate and England came under criticism as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Scotland, but a 1-0 win over the Czech Republic meant they topped their group with seven points and no goals conceded from three matches. The Three Lions’ finest moment at Euro 2020 so far came in a 2-0 win over Germany as goals from Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane saw them defeat their European rivals at Wembley. The latter struck twice at the Olimpico to help seal a rampant 4-0 win over Ukraine, while Kane’s winner in extra time over Denmark saw them secure a place in a major tournament final for the first time since 1966.
Our prediction is Italy to win the trophy and goal/goal.
