England and Italy will face each other at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday for the final of the Euro 2020.

It’s a massive game between two teams who are well drilled, difficult to beat and very tactical in their approach.

Speaking ahead of the final, former Manchester City defender Danny Mills has urged England to target Italy left-back Emerson Palmieri.

Mills believes Emerson will be a weak link in that defence. The Chelsea man will come in for the injured Leonardo Spinazzola, and Mills thinks it would be a struggle for Emerson if he’s targeted.

“A big area that England can exploit is the left-back area, I think Emerson is a weakness,” former defender Mills told talkSPORT.

“Compare him to Spinazzola, he was fantastic and he attacked a lot more and is good defensively. I think you can get at Emerson.

“I don’t think he’s the sharpest, he hasn’t played that much football, and if there is a weak link in that back four now, that will be the place to try and exploit it.”
