Italy vs England: The recent form of both teams:

The Azzurri have gone from failing to qualify for the 2018 Fifa World Cup to make it to the Euro 2020 final. They have not lost since September 2018, if they extend their “astonishing” record to 34 matches Mancini’s men will be crowned European champions. They had their flaws against Spain, but every player stepped up when it matters the most. The Azzurri kept their cool and eased past against Spain in the penalty shootouts.

England, on the other hand, had a very decent Euro so far. They failed to assert absolute dominance over every team they played. However, they somehow made their way to the finals and looks strong to lift their trophy in their own backyard. A late controversial penalty against Denmark saw the Three Lions off to the final. A big test lies ahead of them as they face the Dark Horse of the Euros in the final.

We might not see any big surprises in Mancini’s selection for the final. Against Spain Emerson Palmieri came in at left-back for the injured Leonardo Spinazzola and should keep his place. Federico Chiesa scored in the semi-final and should have also booked his spot in the starting XI.

Italy possible starting XI:

Donnarumma, Di Lorenzo, Bonucci, Chiellini, Emerson; Barella, Jorginho, Verratti; Chiesa, Immobile, Insigne

Although Southgate selected a 3-5-2 formation against Germany, he reverted back to a four-man defence for the games against Ukraine and Denmark. However, he will have a major decision on which formation to choose against the Italians. Although the players looked exhausted after the stressful semi-final against Denmark, England Boss Southgate confirmed that none of the squad has revealed any knocks after playing 90 minutes and extra time.

England possible starting XI:

Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Phillips, Rice; Saka, Mount, Sterling; Kane
