The Italians are the only team to have won every game they have played at the tournament so far and impressed by beating Belgium’s ‘Golden Generation’ in the quarter-final.

Spain were less impressive in the tournament, finishing second in their group behind Sweden.

They then won an epic last 16 match 5-3 against Croatia after extra time before limping past ten-man Switzerland on penalties in the quarter-finals.

But they took the Azzurri all the way at Wembley, with the match finishing 1-1 after 120 minutes.

A penalty shootout followed, with Jorginho rolling in the winning spot-kick for the Italians and booking their place in the final on Sunday.

What is England’s record against Italy?

England have a negative head-to-head record against Italy, having won eight, drawn eight and lost eleven.

And their record against the Italians major tournaments is nothing short of dreadful.

The Three Lions have met the Azzurri four times at European Championships or World Cups, winning zero, drawing one and losing three.

The draw came in the Euro 2012 quarter-final when Roy Hodgson’s men held onto a 0-0 against Cesare Prandelli’s Italy before being knocked out on penalties.

Last time the sides met competitively, Prandelli’s Italy beat Hodgson’s England 2-1 in the 2014 World Cup group stage.

The sides have since played out two 1-1 draws in friendlies.
