England and Italy will face each other in the final of the Euro 2020 tournament, and both teams deserve their place in the final.

Both teams are very tactical in their approach to the game, and this game would be won in the middle of the park.

The two teams boast of quality midfielders — Jorginho and Marco Verratti for Italy, with Kalvin Phillips and Declan Rice for the Three Lions.

Phillips who has had a great tournament so far has admitted that he’s wary of facing Jorginho in midfield on Sunday.

“I have played against Jorginho,” Phillips said. “An amazing player, especially for Chelsea. A player who is very good on the ball, using his body to get away from people. There are going to be a lot of different challenges that Italy are going to cause us.

“Verratti is an amazing player as well. I have always admired Verratti. With their two midfielders it is as difficult as it gets. We know it is going to be a very tough game. To come up against those two midfielders is going to be hardest test we’ve had.”
