Italy.

I've got Manchester City Champions League final vibes about England. Make it to a European final for the first time and then lose. Whatever happens though this England team will go down in history and this tournament will be remembered for decades to come.

I think England will win. The game will be super cagey I suspect, could easily see this being an extra time and penalties affair.

I think this will be so tight. Trying to be as unbiased as possible kink.gif
Italy are a class team but for the first time they looked defensively vulnerable against Spain. I think it will go to extra time, with Italy winning it in either extra time or penalties.

They were also shaky against Austria, could have gone behind if Arnautovic wasn't offside by a cat's whisker. Them losing Spinazzola was a big blow too, arguably the best player of the tournament up till then.

One thing that could tip the balance in England's favour is how much home support there will be at Wembley, if the fans create a hostile atmosphere for the Italian players that could make a difference on the day. I actually think if the match goes to penalties England will win because the pressure on Italy will be too much to handle. England will probably never have a better chance to win a tournament.

I agree though think the Italians will be well represented if still hugely out numbered.

There will be loads of Italian supporters there, probably 10-15k. Home advantage definitely helped England last night, although for a home final it can go either way. I am expecting it to be super cagey and if things are not going England's way then the crowd can get tetchy and then it's really difficult to not to play the ocassion rather than the game. Italy will go full shithousery mode if they are 1-0 up with 15 minutes to go!

Italy seems like the obvious pick even with the home advantage, as they have consistently been the strongest in the tournament, undefeated for 33 games and though they have been patchy in places, never really looked like losing. Ofc. we have also been very consistent and could well find a way here so I wouldn't be surprised if England did edge it. I doubt we'll get another chance like this in years!

For once I've actually voted England! Italy have been very good but having watched them play Spain I can see them potentially struggling. Although having said that we could just as easily get thrashed 5-0.

well apparently a self proclaimed time traveller who correctly predicted the England v Italy final and the England v Ukraine score has now gone and said Italy are to win 2-1. Not looking good for us then if he’s on to something.
