Italy vs England Euro 2020: Head to Head Preview
Will it be coming home, or will it be coming to Rome? A banter that has been trending for the last few days. We will finally know the answer to this after Sunday's final at Wembley where Italy goes head to head against England in the UEFA European Championship 2020 Final.
What an amazing journey it has been for both Italy and England. It's fair to say that the best two teams have made it to the final. England has struggled at international competitions for a few generations now, but Southgate has managed to get the three lions to their first Euro Final.
As for Italy, they have won the Euro championship only once which was back in 1968. Italians have also lost two finals in recent Euro history, one in 2012 (a 4-0 loss to Spain) and the other one in 2000 (a narrow 2-1 loss to France).
After failing to even qualify for the World Cup 2018, Italy is now one step away from conquering Europe for the second time in their illustrious football history.
