It is a battle of titans in Sunday’s EURO 2020 Final

Italy take on England at Wembley Stadium in London in the final of the 2020 European Championship.

Both sides aim to end long droughts when they meet on Sunday.

Gareth Southgate’s England hope that a partisan home crowd will help them lift a first major trophy since winning the 1966 World Cup at the old Wembley.

Italy have not won the Euros since 1968 and Roberto Mancini’s team has impressed at least as much as England in the tournament held over four weeks in 11 European cities.

The Azzurri are on an unbeaten run of 33 games since September 2018 and have never lost against England at a major event.

While  Southgate’s side enjoyed a successful run in the 2018 World Cup, narrowly losing to Croatia in the semi-finals, this is Italy’s first appearance in a major tournament since the 2016 European Championship.

The World Cup in Russia was the first time Italy had not qualified for a major tournament in 60 years but, since  Mancini took over in 2018, they have gone 33 matches unbeaten and are in the 2020 Euro final.
