Italy v England: click here for live coverage
After two epic semi-finals, London hosts a match that, for the first time in EURO history, sees England on the pitch. Since their 1966 FIFA World Cup triumph at the old Wembley Stadium, England have made five semi-final appearances è exited in the semifinals in five tournaments: EURO '68 and '96, the 1990 and 2018 World Cups and the 2019 UEFA Nations League. However, at EURO 2020 eliminated Germany, Ukraine and Denmark and will è qualified for the decisive challenge, putting an end (and paraphrasing a popular song) to 55 years of suffering.
Italy won its only European Championship in 1968 as host nation. He also lost in the finals in 2000 and 2012, but after the European title he won two of his four World Cups. Tuesdayì, the Azzurri beat Spain on penalties; although technically they broke a streak of 13 victories (nonché the record of 15 consecutive successes to EURO, qualifications included), they do not lose from 33 contests. An excellent result for a team that, while England reached the semifinals of the World Cup three years ago, was not even qualified. Skipping the previous World Cup, forò, did not prevent Czechoslovakia in 1976, Denmark in 1992 and Greece in 2004 from climbing onto the roof of Europe.

The opinion of the reporters
Paolo Menicucci, reporter Italy: the semifinal against Spain will not be the best game of the teamà was not the best game of Italy, but there'è one aspect that struck me a lot. The Azzurri seem to play without any pressure. Even when the race è continued to penalties, there were many players who laughed and smiled, as we are used to seeing when they train at Coverciano.
Maybe they know they have alreadyà done something special, which is to regain the affection of an entire country and respect at the international level. È The best spirit with which to face England at Wembley: now just missing the icing on the cake
Simon Hart, reporter England: England have already made history by reaching their first EURO finalà history by reaching their first EURO final. Gareth Southgate’s men have gained momentum and conviction by surpassing a series of milestones that all share the same denominator: 1966. After all, since that FIFA World Cup triumph under Alf Ramsey, England had never gone through a group stage without conceding a goal. né eliminated Germany, né scored four goals in a knockout stage match. Né, of course, reached a final.
Behind the scenes of Italy and England
A team whose strong point è the unità è now one step away from emulating the boys of '66. Pressing Italy represents yet another challenge, but this team has overcome them all so far. And with the support of Wembley, the right moment may have finally arrived.
Opinion from the field
Roberto Mancini, Italy coach: «England è strong, even from the bench has many weapons, but so are we. È one of the most important momentsù important moments of my career. I have played in an extraordinary Under 21 team and in a fantastic National A team, but we were not able to win either theé the European U21 né the 1990 World Cup at home. I hope I can take those satisfactions that I did not have as a player, despite playing in very strong teams''.
Giorgio Chiellini, Italy captain: ‘’L’England è fearsome, when it has field it knows how to hurt. Tomorrow will serve warm heart and cold head, in some moments bisognerà to dare and in others to be lucid. We will need these characteristics to the maximum. It has different characteristics from Spain, the teams that have deserved and demonstrated more have arrived in the finalù’’.
Chiellini and a dream that must become realityà
Gareth Southgate, Ct England: «The truthà è that we will never see these 26 players together again. It doesn’t work that wayì. They have left a great legacyà, however it goes, but now it’s about winning and a possibilityà like this does not happen very often. We must seize the moment and maximize our chancesà of victory. Maybe, [at the World Cup] in Russia we thought differently about the semi-final and what we could do, but now we know that on Monday we will be dissatisfied if we don’t winì we’ll be unhappy if we don’t win the tournament».
Harry Kane, England striker: «We broke down barriers along the way. We started this tournament with the goal of winning it. We have this opportunityà tomorrow night. Just see the fans on the street, just see the welcome we got when we entered the hotel here and as we were leaving St George's Park: they just showed us how great this opportunity is».
