The Euro 2020 final will take place on July 11 at Wembley Stadium in London and thousands of fans will be in attendance. The referee for the final between England and Italy will be the 48 year old Dutch referee Bjorn Kuipers who has loads of experience having officiated the UEFA Europa League in 2013 and 2018.
England will have the home advantage as thousands of their loyal fans will show up in support to cheer them on. While this will definitely be an advantage for England, it could backfire and put them under a lot of pressure, especially if Italy ends up scoring first.

Euro 2020 Championship – Predictions
We expect this to be a close and fiercely contested match that could very well end up going into extra time. England and Italy have shown great defense throughout the tournament and hence we don’t expect this game to be a goal scoring affair.
Italy have had much tougher competition in the lead up to the Euro 2020 final in our opinion and it might give Italy that little extra edge they need against England. One of the hallmarks of Italy during the knockout games were their ability to keep possession of the ball and make it difficult for the opposition to get a chance to score.
Italy have reached the Euro 2020 finals because they have played well as a team with the likes of Ciro Immobile, Lorenzo Insigne, Federico Chiesa, Matteo Pessina and Manuel Locatelli scoring 2 goals apiece. This is what makes Italy so dangerous as their ability to score is not restricted to just one or two players. We got to give special credit to the captain Giorgio Chiellini who has done a tremendous job in defense and also leading this squad.
England have also played well as a team but the two players that have really stole the limelight are Raheem Sterling and captain Harry Kane. Sterling has been spectacular and has 3 goals to his name while Kane has 4 goals and could top the Euro 2020 goal scoring chart if he gets one more in the final.
If Italy can neutralize the likes of Kane and Sterling, they will definitely frustrated England and their fans.
Euro 2020 Championship – Verdict
While the bookmakers and the English fans are confident that England will bring it home, we are going to put our money on Italy to win 1-0 or 2-1.
