After witnessing a flurry of goals in Euro 2020, a final showdown has been set with the coveted trophy on the line.
At Wembley on Sunday, England, in front of their own fans, will aim to bring the trophy home for the first time in its history after several decades of failure.
Italy, under the guidance of Roberto Mancini, will look to avoid the pain suffered in Euro 2000 and take the trophy to Rome. Eyes will be watching; fans will be at the edge of their seats as two worthy teams excite the fans one last time in this showcase.
Match to be decided on penalties
The two teams have had fairytale runs to the final. Italy started brightly in the tournament but had to overcome some bumps on the road to this stage, recording hard fought wins over Belgium and Spain.
England, who started relatively slowly, came alive in the knockout stages, leaving Germany and Ukraine for dead. The 2-1 extra time win over a spirited Denmark side gave fans huge belief.
The game is expected to be tight from start to finish and could produce no goals until penalties. The nerves will certainly be high but Italy is expected to spoil the party.
England are slight favorites to take the trophy home according to Betway. A win for the Three Lions has been priced at 2.57 whilst a win for Italy has been pinned at 2.96. A draw in regulation time has been priced at 3.00.
Harry Kane, who has been in scintillating form over the last three games is priced at 2.86 to score in this game whilst his opponent Ciro Immobile has 3.66 odds to score.
Italy predicted XI: Donnarumma, Di Lorenzo, Bonucci, Chiellini, Emerson, Barella, Jorginho, Verratti, Chiesa, Immobile, Insigne
England predicted XI: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw, Phillips, Rice, Saka, Mount, Sterling, Kane
