Key statistics

This is Italy’s 10th major final (six World Cups and four euros), with only Germany (14) having played more among European nations.

This will be England’s first appearance in a Euro final and their first in a major tournament final since winning the 1966 World Cup – the longest gap (55 years) between the major finals ( World Cup or Euros) for a European nation.

Italy have never lost to England in a major tournament.

The Azzurri won 1-0 at Euro 1980, 2-1 at the 1990 and 2014 World Cups and won 4-2 on penalties at Euro 2012 after a goalless draw in open play.

Italy are unbeaten in their last 33 matches in all competitions (27 wins, six draws), scoring 86 goals and conceding 10 during the race. This is their longest undefeated streak.

England have won 15 of their last 17 appearances at Wembley (one draw, one loss), scoring 46 goals and conceding five in that series. They are undefeated in their last 12 matches in all competitions (11 wins, one draw).

Neither team has won two shots on goal in the same Euro tournament.
