After winning respectively against Denmark and Spain in the semi-finals, England and Italy will compete for the EURO 2020 championship at Wembley Stadium at 2 am 12.07. Both are equally talented and deserve to be the champion of this top European tournament, but there is only one throne for the “king”, so “Three Lions” and “Thien Thanh” both need many things, including the lucky.
Coach Gareth Southgate’s side have been on the upswing since the 2018 World Cup, where they reached the semi-finals and now England have entered an international final for the first time since 1966. point they won the World Cup at home.
Playing at home, England is definitely more appreciated. They also have an extremely excellent defense with only 1 conceded goal (2-1 win over Denmark in the semi-finals). More dangerously, the Three Lions are playing better and so is the striker Sterling. He silenced many critics when he took on the task of scoring for England and continued to play well with Harry Kane. Once this duo runs smoothly, they become formidable against any opponent.
Meanwhile, Italy is on a 33-match unbeaten streak in all competitions. They also beat the world No. 1 team Belgium (according to FIFA rankings) and former European champion Spain (in the semi-finals). More importantly, the Italian team has a different face from them in the past with a diverse attacking style, speed but still as solid as ever.
So this is the dream final for world football fans and everyone deserves to be crowned champion. Of course, England if losing at home is more regrettable for them.
