Previous meetings: Italy vs England
• The teams have faced each other 27 times, the Azzurri winning 11 to England's eight, with eight draws.
• Italy failed to win any of the sides' first eight meetings; England have managed a solitary win in the last seven.
• England suffered tournament-ending losses in both the teams' previous EURO encounters. Marco Tardelli's late goal earned the Azzurri hosts a 1-0 win in the 1980 group stage while Italy prevailed on penalties (remember Andrea Pirlo's Panenka!) in the 2012 quarter-finals.
• Italy have never lost to England at a major finals, with 2-1 FIFA World Cup victories in 1990 (third-place play-off) and 2014 (group stage) on top of those EURO triumphs.
|The last time England played Italy was in March 2018 when the two sides drew 1-1. |
This time, however, England will have the home advantage with the majority of fans backing the home team due to Covid travel restrictions hugely impacting the number of tickets available to Italian fans.
The only Italian fans allowed in the stadium will be those who live in the UK or who have quarantined for 10 days ahead of the match.
