England face Italy in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday, their first major tournament final in 55 years.

Gareth Southgate’s men have overcome some tough opposition on their way to the final, including 2018 World Cup semi-finalists Croatia, rivals Germany and the team that gave it their all, Denmark.

The form of Three Lions’ Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Luke Shaw and Jordan Pickford have caused other countries trouble.

Kane is only two goals away from claiming the competition’s Golden Boot, while shot-stopper Pickford had already claimed the Golden Glove award after going five matches without conceding.

England will be playing their sixth game at Wembley on Sunday, something that has been criticised by other nation’s fans. Their only match that wasn’t played under the arch was when Southgate’s side beat Ukraine 4-0 in the quarter-final clash at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

However, Sunday’s clash will arguably be their toughest, the Italian’s are undefeated in almost three years and have former Premier League winning manager Roberto Mancini at the helm.

The 56-year-old has only lost twice during his time in charge of his home country and has revolutionised the way Italy play and set-up. His reliability of the 4-3-3 formation has worked out well for the Italians, leading to them winning four of their six games in normal time thus far.

Bjorn Kuipers has been announced as the referee for the match and will be the first Dutch official to take charge of a European Championship final.

The 48-year-old has refereed three games at the competition so far, including Denmark’s 2-1 loss to Belgium in Group B, Spain’s 5-0 win over Slovakia in their final game of Group E and the Danes’ 2-1 quarter-final victory over Czech Republic.
