Match Preview

The Italian national team will challenge England in the 2020 European Cup final, at Wembley Stadium, Sunday (11/7) local time or Monday at 12:30 midnight Indian time. The duel will determine the best national team in Europe.

In fact, at the start of the competition, Italy and England are not the teams that occupies the top position of the seeded list at Euro 2020. France and Belgium are considered more likely.

However, Italy and England appeared consistent since the group stage. Italy bulldozed three games with a win. Meanwhile, The Three Lions reaped two wins and one draw.

In the knockout stages, Italy defeated Austria, Belgium, and Spain. On the other hand, England won over Germany, Ukraine, and Denmark.

Now, both teams are just one step away from becoming the best in Europe. Italy and England both have strong reasons to be champions.

For English, this is the first final since the 1966 World Cup. Meanwhile, for Italy, this is the 10th final in history. Gli Azzurri is also more experienced by reaching three European Cup finals. As a result, Italy won in 1968.

Team Condition

In terms of team readiness, Italy certainly cannot display Leonardo Spinazzola. The AS Roma defender's journey in the European Cup has ended after getting a serious injury in the match against Belgium.

However, Roberto Mancini found another alternative to fill the position left by Spinazzola. In the semifinal match, Mancini put Emerson Palmieri in the position of left-back.

According to forecasts, Mancini will not make changes in terms of the line-up. Although the sharpness is questionable, the Ciro Immobile is predicted to remain the main spearhead.

From the other side, the British were in a combat-ready position. Gareth Southgate's troops are predicted to return to play with four defenders. John Stones and Harry Maguire will be the doorstops in defense.

Meanwhile, to attack the Italian defense, it is believed that England will rely on the speed of Raheem Sterling and Bukayo Saka. As for, Harry Kane will be placed as the spearhead.
