England XI vs Italy: Predicted lineup, latest team news, squad, injury update for Euros final
July 11, 2021

England prepare to take on Italy at Wembley.

Bukayo Saka came back into England’s starting XI as Denmark were beaten 2-1 in the semi-final, assisting the equaliser. England might stick with a back four against the Azzurri’s own four-man defence.

Phil Foden is an injury doubt after he missed England’s final training session on Saturday.

After missing England’s final training session before the final, in which the squad did tactical preparation, Foden is unlikely to start.

Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho will again be on the bench, as Saka keeps his spot after another marauding display against Denmark.

Euro 2020 kick-starts in June 2021 with 51 matches after the tournament was postponed last summer, due to the COVID pandemic but they will go ahead with fans in stadiums across the continent.
