Euro 2020: England vs Italy Final

Euro 2020: England vs Italy Final

The grand finale of Uefa European Championship will be played between England and Italy on July 12 (Monday 12:30 AM, Indian time) at the Wembley Stadium in London.

It should be a great game since it features two of the tournament’s best teams. For England, it is a shot at winning a trophy for the first time since the 1966 World Cup. For Italy, it’s a chance at redemption after failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

For all their pedigree and tradition, Italy has only won the Euros once in 1968. England has never won the European Championship and will be contesting their first tournament final in history.

Predicted lineups

England XI : (4-3-3): Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Phillips, Rice, Mount; Saka, Kane, Sterling

Italy XI : (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Di Lorenzo, Bonucci, Chiellini, Emerson; Barella, Jorginho, Verratti; Chiesa, Immobile, Insigne

England vs Italy prediction

After so much tournament heartache, it still feels strange to even contemplate the prospect of England in a major final - but here we are!

Both of these teams have oceans of momentum behind them and picking a winner is extremely difficult.

It will surely be a tense, gripping and tight affair between two excellent, confident teams, potentially decided by just the one goal.

Tonight’s contest really could go either way and maybe it’s heart ruling head just a little bit, but I’m backing England to get that extra push they need from another raucous home crowd.

Time : 12:30am IST
Date : Monday, July 12
Stadium : Wembley Stadium
