Harry Kane and co were beaten in the World Cup semi-finals in 2018 but have done one better at this tournament.

But they will hope that isn’t it as they strive to claim their first major title since 1966.

Italy stand in their way and the Azzurri will prove to be the toughest of tests for England tonight.

England and Italy face off at Wembley in the Euro 2020 final this evening

England v Italy: What has been said?

England manager Gareth Southgate: “We’ve got to enjoy the fact we’re in the final but there’s one more massive hurdle to conquer. 

“Italy are a very good side, I’ve thought that the last couple of years. They are in outstanding form and have defensive warriors who have been through everything. It’s a great game to look forward to.”

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.”
