Plaudits have been pouring in for Chelsea midfielder Jorginho following his excellent performance for Italy in Euro 2020.

Jorginho has formed a formidable partnership with Marco Verratti in midfield, with the Chelsea man proving to be unmatchable so far.

Italy has been very effective in the competition, and Jorginho has been the man pulling the strings.

Former Italy midfielder Massimo Ambrosini has called Jorginho “irreplaceable” in an exclusive interview with Goal ahead of the Euro 2020 final clash between England and Italy.

“Jorginho is irreplaceable. In the midfield, Italy has wide choice and quality,” Ambrosini told Goal.

“Mancini should be thanked for what he did, we must give him credit for having created a strong, courageous team with personality. What he did will be remembered regardless of the result of the final, which we obviously hope will be the icing on the cake.

“I would take the plane now to play this match, they are always unforgettable matches.

“The presence of so many English fans at Wembley can also affect England, in the sense that not everyone is used to playing a final in front of the public of their country and some may feel the pressure.

“It would not be the first time, by the way. Historically, there were sensational defeats of teams that played in finals at home: I am thinking of Bayern Munich in the Champions League or France in the last European Championship.

“Who would I take away from English team? Harry Kane is a great striker. At the beginning of the European Championship he did not score, but now he is reminding everyone that he is capable of making a difference like few others.”
