ITA vs ENG: We have reached the business end of Euro 2020. Italy and England have reached the finals of the tournament.
England have reached the finals of a major tournament after 55 years, whereas Italy have been a team of the tournament with inspiring performances. Both sides haven’t lost a single game in the tournament, and the loss will come at the wrong time for the teams.
Bukayo Saka played in the place of Jadon Sancho last time and was effective for England with his defensive work rate. Gareth Southgate will field the same side against Italy. On the other hand, Italy are without Leonardo Spinnazola who was a star player for the team on the left flank. Mancini is also expected to field the same side that featured against Spain in Wembley.
