The last match of the Euro will be next Sunday at Wembley Stadium
The selections of England and Italy will seek the title at Euro 2020 next Sunday, which for both of them will mark their history in their passage through that contest, since the squad ‘Azzurra’ seeks to be crowned after 53 years and its rival will fight to achieve it for the first time in its history.
The Italian team will seek its second title in the history of the European Championship, in which he has played three finals and will now fight to be crowned after a long wait.
The first final played by the ‘Azzurra’ squad was in 1968 and as host was measured in the final to Yugolsavia, against which he tied a score. The tiebreaker was another match in which he won 2-0 to take the crown.
Later, Italy had to wait 32 years to return to a final in the Eurocup, since in 2000 he faced France in the latter instance, in which he fell 2-1 in overtime with a golden goal from David Trezeguet.
The third time that he reached the last instance of the joust was in 2012, when he faced Spain, who gave him a 4-0 win at the Olympic stadium in Kiev, Ukraine.
Now, once again, the Italian team was placed in a final, since they beat penalties to Spain within the semifinals and will be measured at England, which surpassed Denmark 2-1 in overtime, within the semifinals.
The English team will play for the first time the title of a European Championship, and he will seek the dream of being crowned against an Italian team that has been a difficult rival in this edition.
England had his best performance in a Eurocup in the 1996 edition, when he reached the semifinals, in which he lost to Germany, which ended up being crowned.
Another of the outstanding performances he had achieved was in 1968, when they took third place, after they beat the team 2-0. USSRbut they had never reached a last resort.
Thus, it will be next Sunday when Italians and English meet at Wembley Stadium, in search of the long-awaited championship of the Euro 2020.
