Italy and England will battle in the UEFA Euro 2020 Final at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, July 11. Italy was the first to land a spot in the final of Euro 2020 on Tuesday night, as they defeated Spain on penalties. Denmark and England clashed at Wembley Stadium in London on Wednesday night, and it was England who made it through. Italy is seeking to add to their solitary European title after 53 years. England is aiming to be crowned European champions for the first time.
Let's check out some facts about Sunday's showpiece event.
When and where is the final?
The UEFA Euro 2020 Final match will be played at 8pm BST (3pm ET) on Sunday, July 11, 2021 at the Wembley Stadium in London.
Past meetings of Italy and England
The teams have battled each other 27 times, the Azzurri winning 11 to England's eight, with eight draws.
Italy failed to win any of the sides' first eight meetings. England have managed to get a solitary win in the last seven.
Italy have never lost to England at a major finals, with 2-1 FIFA World Cup wins in 1990 (3rd place play-off) and 2014 (group stage) on top of those Euro victories.
How many fans will attend at Wembley?
Wembley Stadium in London is the final's venue. It is the home ground of the England national team with a 90,000 seating capacity.
Over 60,000 spectators will be permitted to watch the final in Wembley. A deal was made between UEFA and the UK government, in which the latter gave the go signal for the stadium to operate at 75% capacity for the event.
Fans who wish to attend the games will of course need to undergo some requirements, which include showing a negative Covid-19 test or proof of full vaccination, 14 days before the event.
UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin happily said, "It is great news that so many fans will be able to watch the final three matches of the Euro 2020 at Wembley. The last 18 months have taught us - both on and off the pitch - how integral fans are to the fabric of the game. This tournament has been a beacon of hope to reassure people that we are returning to a more normal way of life and this is a further step along that road."
