England’s Euro 2020 route: Finally, it’s Italy

Must read

England will face Italy in the final of Euro 2020 on Sunday after beating Denmark in the semi-finals after extra-time.

The game at Wembley will kick-off at 8pm.

It will be the first time England have played in the final of a European Championship and it will be England’s first tournament final since the 1966 World Cup.

More than 60,000 fans will be allowed into Wembley after the ground’s capacity was permitted to increase to 75 per cent for the final three games of the competition.

Remember when topping Group D seemed like a bad idea?

While the ‘risk’ of topping Group D was, from the outset, that England were likely to face a powerhouse opponent in the last 16, the longer-term advantage of progressing as winners was that England were now in the other half of the draw to Italy and Spain.

Victory over Germany meant England knew they would face either Ukraine or Sweden in what would be their only game of the tournament outside of Wembley and following their emphatic defeat of Ukraine in Rome, they returned to Wembley to defeat Denmark with Harry Kane scoring the winning goal in extra-time.
