Italy dangermen: Four biggest threats to England in Euro 2020 final


E

ngland think football is coming home — but Italy have other ideas.

Roberto Mancini’s side are unbeaten for a staggering 33 matches and believe, instead, that football’s ‘coming Rome’.

They have the weapons at their disposal to ensure that could be the case come Sunday night…

This is a strong Italy squad, and their greatest strength in depth is in attacking positions out wide.

Federico Chiesa was not even starting when the tournament begun, but now he is key cog in the front-three.

That underlines how Italy have plenty of options, with Domenico Berardi and Matteo Pessina useful weapons off the bench.

Chiesa and Lorenzo Insigne should start on Sunday and both will require close attention by England.

The pair are able to cut inside and cause problems, with striker Ciro Immobile’s movement providing space for them to operate in.

The midfielder has sometimes struggled during his time at Chelsea, but he has established himself as the heartbeat of this Italy team.

Jorginho’s work often goes unnoticed, partly because he is doing the dirty stuff, but his value cannot be underestimated.

He is a vital screen for Italy in front of their defence, breaking up play and starting attacks with simple passes.
