Italy vs England Euro 2020 Final

With the match being contested at Wembley Stadium, England will be soaking in the energy from their capacity crowd, as they look to win a major trophy after 55 long years. An own goal from Simon Kjaer and a goal by Harry Kane at extra time got England through by beating a resolute Danish unit in the semi finals. England and their fans firmly believe that it might well be ‘Coming Home’ after decades of misery. To back their claim furthermore, they’ve just conceded one goal, that too through a set piece, in the ongoing campaign.

However, if there is a team that truly deserved a spot in the finals, then it has to be Italy.  The Azzuri are now unbeaten in 18 straight European games and have played with serious conviction throughout the tournament. One could argue that they weren’t at their absolute best against Spain, as they had to go to penalties to get the desired result. Nevertheless, they do have the experience and the firepower to go the distance versus the hosts. With all that being said, we can expect the clash between the two heavyweights to be a cracking affair.
