KEY STATS


*This is Italy's 10th major final (six World Cups, four Euros), with only Germany (14) having played in more among European nations.


*This will be England's first ever appearance in a Euro final and their first in the final of a major tournament since winning the 1966 World Cup -- the longest gap (55 years) between major finals (World Cup or Euros) for any European nation.


*Italy have never lost against England at a major tournament (W3 D1). The Azzurri won 1-0 at Euro 1980, 2-1 at both the 1990 and 2014 World Cups and won 4-2 on penalties at Euro 2012 after a goalless draw.


*Italy are unbeaten in their last 33 matches in all competitions (W27 D6), scoring 86 goals and conceding 10 during the run. This is their longest unbeaten stretch of matches.


*England have won 15 of their last 17 matches at Wembley (D1 L1), scoring 46 goals and conceding five in that run. They are unbeaten in their last 12 matches in all competitions (W11 D1).


*No team has won two penalty shootouts at the same Euro tournament.

 

What do we think about tonight? Italy with the aging defence for the taking? 

They got too much attacking threat for us to deal with?

Would you like to see trippier as a full back and walker moved more into the middle?

Grealish or Saka? 

In work on Monday or not? 😆

Have a good day all and hope we bring it home and it doesn't go to Rome 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

Trippier sounding far too much like Owen Farrell for my liking in that interview, fear he may pick the ball up and run with it!

I think the loud 'C'Mon' should be a permanent addition to the end of national anthem, it would liven up any occasion.

So the fact I posted before the match kicked off is irrelevant. The time stamp proves that too. 

If replying to a post you've made is an obsession I'd point out its impossible to find a thread you're not on. 

As before get over yourself.

How did everyone else agree to playing the finale in Wembley? Were they so confident England wouldn't make it? That was pretty damn stupid. Crowd is having field day. Just total psychological beatdown against Italy. Obvious Italy is suffering from concentration problems. Really nervy, easy mistakes. After playing 1 year without audience they have no mental resistance to booing and jeering.

It doesn't help England is playing well.

Southgate's definitely been proving a lot of people wrong through this tournament.
