Jose Mourinho has given his pre-match analysis of the Euro 2020 final between England and Italy.

Both teams square off at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday, with the Three Lions having the home advantage.

Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is backing England to win the game, as he believes Spain has given the Three Lions the Blue print on how to beat the Azzurris.

Italy who has had a phenomenal tournament struggled against the Spaniards and only managed to win the game on penalties, as they couldn’t cope with Spain’s false nine system.

Mourinho believes England should simply follow Spain’s cue and cause problems for the Italian defence.

“I think Gareth did watch and for sure rewatch Italy v Spain. It was the match where Italy had more difficulties,” Mourinho told talkSPORT.

“They played without a 9. It was difficult for Italy to cope with it. I can see Harry Kane doing that a lot, dropping and being away from Bonucci and Chillelini.

“Kane does that better than anyone, I can only remember Harry and Benzema. With Harry dropping is the way for England to dominate.”

Whatever the outcome, either two or three Chelsea players will be crowned champions at the end, and it will be a wonderful feat for any of the Chelsea players to become champions of Europe for their club and country.
