It has all come down to this. One more game separates England from that illusive international trophy, a feat that has eluded so many during 55 years of hurt.
Gareth Southgate’s side overcame Mikkel Damsgaard’s 30th minute free kick to book their place at Wembley for the European Championship final.
And their opponents Italy have also been equally as impressive as the Three Lions, holding a 100% record until the semi-final stage, as well as being unbeaten in 33 matches.
But in a final, anything can happen, and England fans will be hoping that football will be coming home as football frenzy sweeps the nation.

And with the final being played at Wembley, England will be looking to become the fourth team to win the European Championship’s on home soil.
Spain (1964), Italy (1968) and France (1984) all achieved that, whilst Portugal (2004), and France (2016) both reached the final only to lose.
There has been little between the teams over the years, Italy winning ten of their 27 fixtures to England's eight, although England have managed 33 goals, two more than the Azzurri.

And whilst the record between the two sides may be close, the Azzuri have plenty more experience when it comes to playing in international tournament finals.
They have featured three times in European Championship finals, winning only once in 1968 against Yugoslavia in Rome. Their most recent appearance was during the 2012 Euro’s, losing 4-0 to Spain in Kyiv.
What time is kick-off in Euro 2020 final?
The final will kick-off at Wembley at 8pm on Sunday, July 11th.
What is the team news for the Euro 2020 final?
The Three Lions’ only injury concern was Arsenal ’s Bukayo Saka after his missed the quarter-final hammering of Ukraine.
The 19-year-old was recalled to the starting line-up against Denmark, and appeared fresh before being replaced by Jack Grealish in the 69th minute.

Who will win Euro 2020? Let us know in the comments below.
Man City's Phil Foden missed training on Saturday and could be a doubt for the game after his impressive cameo against Denmark.
Southgate stuck with a four-man defence against the Danes after switching to a three to nullify the threat of the German wing-backs.
The England boss will face a similar decision over his formation against Italy, while Grealish’s substitution in extra time against the Danes despite only being on the pitch for 35 minutes in the second half looked to be a tactical decision rather than being caused by any injury.

Italy are still without Leonardo Spinazzola following the full-back undergoing surgery on a ruptured Achilles tendon which he sustained against Belgium in the quarter finals.
Chelsea ’s Emerson Palmieri deputised well for Spinazzola against Spain and will be expected to do so again on Sunday.
Who will be the referee for the Euro 2020 final?
The experienced Bjorn Kuipers will be the man in the middle, accompanied by Sander van Roekel and Erwin Zeinstra, with Spain’s Carlos Del Cerro Grande tasked with being the fourth official.
The VAR referee will be German ref Bastian Dankert.
How to watch the Euro 2020 final?
The game will be broadcast live on both BBC and ITV, who have shared the majority of games throughout the tournament.
Fans also able to stream the game online via BBC iPlayer and the ITV Hub.
For those deciding on what channel to choose, many could be swayed by the dynamic duo of Clive Tyldesley and Ally McCoist on commentary. The pair have been praised for their effortless work throughout the tournament and could bring viewers to ITV instead of the BBC.
Wednesday’s semi-final saw almost 24 million people tune in to watch the Three Lions, with the last five minutes of the game drew a peak of 25.71 million people.
The most watched event of recent years remains the Prime Minister's May 2020 coronavirus announcement, which was seen by 27.49m viewers across six different channels.
And Sunday’s final could break the record set by the 32.3 million who watched England win the World Cup Final in 1966.
