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 have been far 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.

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.

England have won 14, drawn three and lost ten against the Spaniards.

In major tournaments, the Three Lions have won one, drawn two and lost one against La Roja.

However, the defeat was way back at the 1950 World Cup when they were beaten 1-0.

The sides haven’t met at a tournament since Euro 96, when England famously drew 0-0 at Wembley before knocking Spain out on penalties.

In their last meeting, England were 3-2 winners in Seville in the Uefa Nations League in 2018.
