Who will win the Euro 2020 Final? England vs Italy
The world of football is eagerly waiting for the answer to Who will win the Euro 2020 Final on June 12, as England will lock horns with Italy in the UEFA Euro 2020 final.
Even though both these teams have reached the final after some tough battles, football experts believe that Italy has a slight upper hand due to their impeccable defense. However, a self-styled psych believes that the speculations of football experts based on statistics will prove wrong this time, and he claims that England will win this Euro Cup.
Who has the Upper Hand Heading into Sunday’s Final?
England will be up against a record-equalling Italy attack, with the Azzurri never scoring more than 12 goals at a major tournament – doing so at Euro 2020 but also the 1934, 1982 and 2006 World Cups. They ended all three previous campaigns as champions.
Roberto Mancini’s side are only the second team – after France in 2000 – to have as many as five different players score two or more goals at a European Championship. Federico Chiesa, Matteo Pessina, Lorenzo Insigne, Ciro Immobile and Manuel Locatelli have all netted multiple times.

Even if Italy cannot break down the Three Lions and are perhaps forced to go to penalties, no European nation have contested more shoot-outs at Euros or World Cups – their 10 tied with semis spot-kick opponents Spain. And the Azzurri are the outright leaders in playing extra time at the Euros, having now done so on nine occasions.
That final experience England lack is certainly evident in Italy’s history, with this to be their 10th in major tournaments (six at World Cups, four at Euros). Germany (14) are the only European nation to play more such finals. Leonardo Bonucci appeared in Italy’s most recent final against Spain at Euro 2012 and another outing at Wembley would take him past Gianluigi Buffon for Azzurri Euros games.He is set for his 18th appearance and will be determined to ensure defensive colleague Giorgio Chiellini is holding the trophy aloft on Sunday night.
But England answered some questions against Denmark, notably facing adversity as they trailed for the first time after Jordan Pickford’s record run of 725 minutes without conceding was ended by Mikkel Damsgaard’s free-kick.
Pickford had just passed Gordon Banks’ previous Three Lions benchmark of 720 minutes set between May and July 1966. A Simon Kjaer own goal and Harry Kane’s extra time rebound – after Kasper Schmeichel saved his penalty – turned the match on its head, though, with England coming from behind to win a knockout game at the European Championship for the very first time.Indeed, a 3-2 victory over Cameroon at the 1990 World Cup was the most recent example of England overturning a deficit at a major tournament.
