The agonizing wait for football to return to the United States has never been closer. By defeating Italy at Wembley on Sunday night, England can put an end to 55 years of suffering.
English football supporters have had enough hardships over the years, therefore people celebrating as if the Euros have already been won should be excused. However, there is still a nerve-wracking 90 minutes (or more) to go against a formidable opponent who has looked as bit as good as a squad who hasn’t lost in 33 games.
Gareth Southgate’s fearless young Lions, on the other hand, will not be losing any sleep at the prospect of facing Italy, who have proven to be a formidable opponent throughout the tournament.
Both teams have parallels and variances in their attacking strategies; Italy is more explosive on the break, while England is more patient and probing in attack, with a shared focus on excellent defending.
