Team news and squads

Position Italy players
Goalkeepers Donnarumma, Meret, Sirigu
Defenders Bonucci, Chiellini, Spinazzola, Toloi, Acerbi, Di Lorenzo, Emerson, Florenzi, Bastoni
Midfielders Cristante, Verratti, Barella, Castrovilli, Pessina, Jorginho, Locatelli
Forwards Immobile, Belotti, Insigne, Berardi, Bernardeschi, Raspadori, Chiesa

Leonardo Spinazzola was one of Italy’s star players at this tournament but is unavailable after suffering an achilles ligament injury. Emerson replaced him and will continue to deputise in the final.

Roberto Mancini has no other pressing concerns and the Italian XI is relatively settled at this point, with Federico Chiesa forcing his way into the team ahead of Domenico Berardi on the wing.

Predicted Italy starting XI: Donnarumma; Emerson, Chiellini, Bonucci, Di Lorenzo; Verratti, Barella, Jorginho; Chiesa, Insigne, Immobile

Position England players
Goalkeepers Pickford, Ramsdale, Johnstone
Defenders Walker, Shaw, Stones, Maguire, Trippier, Mings, Coady, Chilwell, White, James
Midfielders Rice, Grealish, Henderson, Phillips, Mount, Foden, Saka, Bellingham
Forwards Kane, Sterling, Rashford, Sancho, Calvert-Lewin

Phil Foden has not featured as much as he would have liked at this tournament and is considered a doubt with what Gareth Southgate described as “a minor foot injury”.

Bukayo Saka returned to the team for the semi-final win against Denmark and is expected to retain his place after being involved in England’s equaliser. 

While Southgate has persisted with the central midfield partnership of Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips, there have been suggestions that Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson could start.

Predicted England starting XI: Pickford; Shaw, Maguire, Stones, Walker; Rice, Phillips, Mount; Sterling, Saka, Kane
