England will want to end their long wait for an international trophy as they haven’t won any since their 1966 triumph in the World Cup. Furthermore, they have never won the Euros and will be itching to finally bring it home.

There has been some controversy regarding the venue of the final as England has played all but one match of the tournament away from home.

The talks of favoritism only increased when veteran Italian center back and the team captain Giorgio Chiellini remarked on England’s home advantage. However, he then praised his counterpart and the captain of the England team, Harry Kane.

England vs. Italy: A battle between two European giants

This match did not come as a surprise to anyone as Italy and England have been the two best teams throughout the course of the tournament.

England has only conceded one goal (that freakishly good Mikkel Damsgaard free-kick in the semi-final), while Italy has conceded three in six matches.

England’s attack hasn’t let them down either, as Kane and Raheem Sterling have put the team on their shoulders and helped them reach the final.

However, they will face their toughest test yet against the veteran partnership of Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci with Gigi Donnarumma in goal.

This will be one of the biggest matches of the year, and millions of people are expected to watch it from around the world. It’ll be interesting to see whether football will finally come home or if the Azzurri will reign supreme.
