England v Italy LIVE commentary: Kick-off time, latest team news and full talkSPORT coverage as heroic Three Lions eye Euro 2020 glory at Wembley tonight

England will be out to win just their second ever major title when they take on Italy in the Euro 2020 final tonight.

Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions have been brilliant yet again this summer and the nation is dreaming of glory for the first time in 55 years.

England and Italy will battle it out to be the best team in Europe

‘It’s Coming Home’ has rung out across the country in recent weeks and England have responded in brilliant fashion on the pitch.

They beat old foes Germany in the last-16 before smashing Ukraine 4-0 in the quarter-finals.

Harry Kane and co then saw off Denmark on Wednesday night to book their place in the final at Wembley.

Not since the World Cup in 1966 have England tasted glory at the highest level but their current crop of stars could now end that long, long wait.

Italy, who have been quite brilliant too this summer, stand in England’s way.

Roberto Mancini’s Azzurri have seen off powerhouses Belgium and Spain to reach the final and will be brimming with confidence.

It should be a thrilling final with England and Italy definitely being the two best teams of the tournament.

England are facing Italy in the final of Euro 2020

England v Italy: Squads

Playmaker Phil Foden missed England’s training session on the eve of the Euro 2020 final against Italy.

The Manchester City ace was the only one of the 26-man squad not available to take part in the final session at St George’s Park on Saturday.

Boss Southgate said in his final pre-match press conference that Foden was unlikely to feature in the final.

“He’s a doubt,” he said. “We’ll have to check again but he’s got a fairly minor foot injury.

“But it’s just whether it’s going to be one that clears up in time for him to be able to take part in the game, so we’ll have to assess that again later.”

Italy are without left-back Leonardo Spinazzola, who suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon in the quarter-finals, but have no other injury concerns.

Roberto Mancini is likely to name the same team that beat Spain in the semi-finals on penalties, with stalwarts Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini forming a formidable central defensive partnership.


Goalkeepers: Sam Johnstone (West Bromwich Albion), Jordan Pickford (Everton), Aaron Ramsdale (Sheffield United)

Defenders: Ben Chilwell (Chelsea), Conor Coady (Wolves), Reece James (Chelsea), Harry Maguire (Manchester United), Tyrone Mings (Aston Villa), Luke Shaw (Manchester United), John Stones (Manchester City), Kieran Trippier (Atlético), Kyle Walker (Manchester City), Ben White (Brighton)

Forwards: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton), Harry Kane (Tottenham), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City)

Italy stand between England and a first-ever Euros triumph

England v Italy: What has been said?

England manager Southgate: “It’s been fantastic to have a letter from the Queen, a letter from the Prime Minister to all of the team and the recognition that the players and all of the staff have gone about this in the right way.

“We had a fabulous reception when we left St George’s. All the local villages had come out, lining the route. People pulled over in lay-bys so you got more of a sense of what’s gone on outside of the bubble that we’ve been in.

“But it always comes back to tomorrow. We’re in a final and we’re here to win.

“It’s important how we’ve represented people and we’re pleased that legacy has been there but now we want to go and win the trophy for everybody.”

England midfielder Jordan Henderson: “It’s full focus on Sunday, the biggest game of our lives. We’ve got to try and make everybody happy again in this stadium and in this country. 

“A huge opportunity for us as a group, as a country, and we’ll give it absolutely everything.”

Italy coach Roberto Mancini: “We have been working towards this for many years so we are very happy and I can only thank the players for what they have done so far. We have won nothing yet; we will have to win on Sunday to consider it a success. 

“England will have an entire stadium behind them. It will be on us to put them under pressure. A final is a bit different from other games, we will have to play with focus but also with joy because you can only win a final if you take pitch to have fun.”

Italy captain Giorgio Chiellini: “This championship has been very emotional, from the first match against Turkey until now. 

“It’s a dream we’ve been chasing over the years, a dream our coach slowly put in our minds until it started coming true. He told us to have in our minds the idea of winning the EURO. 

“We thought he was crazy, but over the last few years he has created a team which is now on the brink of doing just that.”
