Who Will Win The Euro 2020 Final? England Or Italy?

Who Will Win The Euro 2020 Final? England Or Italy?

England faces Italy in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley on Sunday night. The Three Lions have not won a major tournament since their famous triumph over West Germany in 1966.

England manager Gareth Southgate’s side is seeking to win their first major tournament for 55 years.

For the first time in the history of the European Championship, England and Italy meet in the final on Sunday. They eliminated Denmark in the semi-finals of the competition with a 1-goal victory in extra time. Simon Kjaer’s own goal canceling out Mikkel Damsgaard’s free-kick allowed Harry Kane to score the winning goal of the game and take England into their first Euro Final.

While defeating the top-ranked team in the world, Belgium in the quarterfinals, and then getting past Spain in a penalty shootout in the semi-finals, it has not been an easy road to the final for the Italians. While beating Turkey, Switzerland, and Wales in the group stage, it was only in the penalty shoot-out last-16 match against Austria that they showed even the slightest amount of a wobble after passing effortlessly over those three sides.

The streak of 33 matches without a loss ended in September 2018, and the last time they lost was earlier this year. Three years ago, the Azzurri failed to qualify for the World Cup, but they are doing their best to make up for the lost time. This will be Italy’s fourth final in the European Championship and their 10th major event final overall.

Who Do The Bookies Think Will Win?

The winner predictions for Euro by bookmakers have England as the favorites. But the bookies expect this to be an extremely close game and very hard to call the winner.

How Will The Teams Line Up?

The big question will be if England line up with a back four or three as they have used both throughout the tournament. There are no injury concerns going into the final, so the manager will have a full squad to choose from.

As we all know, Italy is missing Spinazzola, of course, after the Roma full-back suffered a torn Achilles tendon while playing against Belgium. He will remain on the sidelines for many months. Emerson Palmieri filled in capably for Spinazzola when he was out for Italy’s games against Spain, and he will be counted on to step in for him in the final.

Who Will Win?

On Sunday, England will face Germany in the UEFA EURO 2020 final. There is a lot of momentum behind both sides, making it very tough to determine who will come out on top. I am going to support England because they will benefit from a larger-than-usual home-crowd excitement. I believe England will finally break their painful drought by winning 1-0. It may even go to extra time.
