Rally before the final in Leicester Square

Ever since winning the 1966 World Cup over Germany, already at Wembley, England’s red and white tides have been dreaming of a selection that has been dropped from the title.

Gareth Southgate was not born at the time and therefore did not hold any English title. The Three Lions had never reached the continental final before and after a missed shot on goal at home in the Euro 1996 semi-final, he became aware of it.

“Since the end of the first round, we have had the opportunity to write a page of history in every game,” he said on Saturday. We are impatient, it is a great match to prepare against a great opponent, technically very good, very organized ”.

“It’s been a long time”

“It would be a wonderful night if England won, it’s been a long time coming,” said David Durant, a 74 – year – old English pensioner, who was met by the AFP on the outskirts of Wembley just hours before the kim-off.

Fascinating once again after dark years, Italy hopes to fill its trophy cabinet fifteen years after winning the 2006 World Cup and nine years after failing in the Euro 2012 final.

Roberto Mancini led the Bonucci-Chiellini duo to a resounding defense, scoring an unbeaten run in 33 games and building a cheerful team coming to Wembley to win back the Azzurri.

England further strengthened their defense by giving priority to Kieran Tripper to winger Bukayo Saka next to the iron axis by John Stones and Harry Maguire. Her impressive midfield with Calvin Phillips and Mason Mount and her formidable attack with Rahim Sterling and Harry Kane can also be counted on.

Chiell warns: “Fortunately, this is a team sport: the important thing is that either Bonucci or Chiell won over Kane or Sterling, but Italy won over England”. The English hope for the opposite result, at the end of an evening, which will be one of the longest and most attempts of their existence.
