😎 The EURO 2020 final is set!
🇮🇹🆚🏴 Italy versus England at Wembley Stadium on Sunday 🔥
— UEFA EURO 2020 (@EURO2020) July 7, 2021
Italy successfully came out of the challenging knockout ties against Belgium in the quarterfinal and Spain in the semis to book their place in the final. It was a cruising 2-1 win against Belgium but Spain created a massive roadblock for them but Italy stood firm and went through on penalties. It will be their first final appearance since Euro 2012.
England too, looked convincing in their knockout wins against Germany and Ukraine before a rekindled Denmark tested the English attackers to their limits. The Danish defence put everything on the line but couldn’t stretch it past the extra time as England’s fierce attacking lineup finally got the better of them and booked their place in the final. It will be England’s first-ever Euro final ever.
