Judging by the awe-inspiring performances of both teams in recent outings, Sunday’s final promises to live up to the billing.
England and Italy last met in an international friendly in Wembley on March 27, 2018 – which ended in a 1-1 draw.
Jamie Vardy had put the Three Lions ahead in the 26th minute before Lorenzo Insigne’s effort from the penalty spot ended the game all square.
The Tottenham Hotspur star has been directly involved in 28 goals in his last 27 appearances for England in all competitions. Should he find the net, that will see him equal Gary Lineker’s feat as the country’s highest goalscorer in major tournaments.
The Italians were in Group A alongside Wales, Switzerland and Turkey. Mancini’s team topped the group stage with all nine points. In the Round of 16, they saw off Austria 2-1 before overcoming Belgium by the same margin in the quarter-finals. Italy beat Spain 4-2 on penalties in the last four as the score after extra-time stood at 1-1.
Hosts England were in Group D alongside Croatia, Scotland and the Czech Republic. The Three Lions topped that zone with seven points. In the Round of 16, goals from Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling saw them dismiss Germany 2-0. They were ruthless against Ukraine in the last eight – pummelling Andriy Shevchenko’s men 4-0 in Rome. To reach the final, they laboured to a 2-1 victory over Denmark.
