50 games, 1,218 shots and 140 goals later, the EURO 2020 final is now set. Italy and England will meet on Monday (IST), in their first clash at the European Championships since 2012.
For Italy, the stage is a familiar one. The Azzurri have played in seven finals at major tournaments since England’s last one in 1966. But although Gareth Southgate’s side may be in unchartered territory compared to its opponent, it will be buoyed by the advantage of a home crowd at Wembley in the showpiece.
According to the Stats Perform prediction model, it is Roberto Mancini’s team which retains the best chance of lifting the trophy (currently rated at 60.1%).
ITALY: Gianluigi Donnarumma; Emerson Palmieri, Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci, Giovanni Di Lorenzo; Jorginho, Manuel Locatelli, Nicolo Barella; Federico Chiesa, Lorenzo Insigne, Ciro Immobile
ENGLAND: Jordan Pickford; Kyle Walker, John Stones, Harry Maguire; Kieran Trippier, Declan Rice, Kalvin Phillips, Mason Mount, Luke Shaw; Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling
Italy has won 11 games out of a total of 30 matches played between the two sides, while England has managed to emerge victorious on eight occasions.
Their previous meeting in 2018 at Wembley ended in a 1-1 draw after Italy's Lorenzo Insigne scored a late equaliser after Jamie Vardy put the host ahead.
