How do England and Italy arrive?
England reaches this final after having played a very complete European Championship. It is the first time in their history that they have played a final in a Euro, and they will do so against a very powerful Italian team.
England has just defeated Denmark in a very good game with a result of 2-1, a game that ended in 120 minutes, after a 1-1 draw in the 90-minute regulation. In this match, Denmark started hitting first, with a goal from Mikkel Damsgard in the 30th minute, but they set the game right themselves after scoring an own goal just 9 minutes later. After this, England managed to dominate the entire match, but they could not get the way to score the winning goal and it was not until the 104th minute, when Harry Kane, who had already missed a penalty in the match, scored the goal of victory and placed England in the Final of this Euro 2021.

On the other hand, we have the best team today, in European football, Italy. The Italians reach this very well-deserved final, after playing a simply spectacular, if not perfect, Eurocup. And it has not been very easy for him to say, because Italy managed to leave very powerful teams like Belgium and Spain on the road, the latter in the semifinals of the tournament.
In this semifinal match, Italy woke up at the start of the second half, where they managed to overwhelm the Spaniards for a large part, scoring the first goal through Federico Chiesa at minute 60, then, Spain managed to equalize the score thanks to a goal from Alvaro Morata at minute 80. Regulatory time ended and extended with the score of 1-1, so they went to penalties. On penalties, Italy achieved 4 out of 5 penalties that were fired, but the figure was its goalkeeper who managed to stop Morata’s penalty to win the match.
