It’s the final countdown, as Roberto Mancini and Giorgio Chiellini tell Italy to focus on enjoying the UEFA EURO 2020 Final and England have Phil Foden injury doubts.
The big game kicks off at Wembley Stadium on Sunday at 20.00 UK time.
The Azzurri flew in to Luton Airport this morning, naturally after Gianluca Vialli had completed his superstitious routine of ‘missing’ the team bus at Coverciano.
Mancini spoke at a press conference, as did captain Chiellini, both urging the Nazionale to enjoy every moment of the event.
Gareth Southgate tried to explain how the Three Lions song has been misconstrued abroad, while Harry Kane admits Italy’s history is beyond the current England level, at least for now.
Phil Foden is entirely likely to not even be on the bench for the Final, as he missed training due to a slight foot injury.
Dino Zoff is confident Italy can win at Wembley, just as he did in 1973, while the Scottish media had their own reasons for cheering on Mancini in Braveheart mode.
