After playing 50 matches across Amsterdam, Baku, Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Glasgow, London, Munich, Rome, Saint Petersburg and Seville, the winner of this year's UEFA European Football Championship will be decided at today's Italy vs England game and we have all the details on how you can watch the Euro 2020 Final on TV or online.
Today's match will be held at Wembley Stadium in London and there will be more than 60,000 football fans in attendance to cheer on their country's team. However, this also means that England will have the home field advantage which could make securing a win more difficult for Italy.
On Tuesday, Italy secured its place in the Euro 2020 Final after defeating Spain in a penalty shootout at the semi-finals. Both teams were tied 1-1 but Italy managed to score four penalty shots while Spain only scored two at Wembley. Meanwhile, on Wednesday England defeated Denmark 2-1 in its semi-final match to secure its place in today's match.
While this will be England's first ever appearance in a European Championship final, Italy first won the European Championship back in 1968. However, during Italy's two subsequent final appearances in 2000 and 2012, it lost against France and Spain respectively.
Regardless of which team wins today's final, both Italy and England will be receiving medals to distribute among their players and staff. While the winning team will receive 40 gold medals, the runners-up will receive 40 silver medals. Additionally, football fans in England could be celebrating in the streets on Monday as Boris Johnson has yet to rule out the idea of making the day an emergency bank holiday if the country's team ends up winning the Euro 2020 Final.
