England will take on Italy in Sunday’s Euro 2020 final at Wembley Stadium, their first major tournament final in 55 years.
Gareth Southgate’s side beat Denmark 2-1 in extra time in Wednesday’s semi-final in front of 60,000 fans in London.
Harry Kane was the man who helped the Three Lions into their first-ever European Championship final thanks to his quick follow up shot from his initial penalty save. The goal in the first-half of extra time was enough to see out a monumental victory for the nation.
England’s final four clash with the Danes was the first in which they conceded a goal. Shot-stopper Jordan Pickford has already won the Golden Glove award having gone five matches without being beaten before this.

Southgate’s men have been impressive in front of goal, netting 10 times – including four from captain Kane. The Tottenham Hotspur striker is only two goals off winning the Euro 2020 Golden Boot.
Wembley, the home of the Three Lions, will play host to Sunday’s final. The UK Government have announced that the stadium will be at 75 percent capacity for the game, meaning another 60,000 supporters will have the opportunity to watch England try and lift the Henri Delaunay Trophy.
However, beating Italy will be no easy task. The Italian, led by former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini, are unbeaten in almost three years.
The 56-year-old has set his side up well with a 4-3-3 formation, something that has led to the Italians netting 12 goals thus far.
There’s no denying that Sunday’s final will be a fantastic affair for both nations with both sets of fans praying their country comes out on top.

Southgate’s team have had an interesting path to the final, playing five of their six matches in the capital. But have you ever wondered how much the Three Lions squad earns per stage of the tournament?
Have no fear, the Mirror is here to tell you.
The overall payout for the winners of Euro 2020 is a potential £24m, with a minimum of £8m received by each nation.
However, unfortunately for England they won’t get their hands on the full jackpot. This is because they didn’t win all their group games on route to this Sunday’s final.
Despite topping Group D, the Three Lions failed to beat rivals Scotland in their second group game, drawing 0-0 against the first two international sides to compete in the sport.

Due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and the postponement of the tournament, Uefa reduced the original budget of £319m to £284.55m. Another reason for this is due to the increased expense of matches having reduced crowds in each stadium.
Southgate’s squad will receive a bonus if they win the competition. This will be paid by the FA to the players from a £175m bank loan.
However, according to The Telegraph , England’s stars won’t receive any payment unless the Governing body pays back the loan in full.

The figures making it to each stages of the tournament are as follows:
Reaching the Round of 16 – £1.29m
Making the quarter-finals – £2.15m
Reaching the semi-finals – £3.44m
The Three Lions and Italy will pocket the highest payout from Uefa for reaching the Euro 2020 final, with the winner of the tournament getting £6.88m, while the runner-up takes home £4.3m.
