Southgate: “Italy great team, it will be an epic match”

England coach: “I’m proud of my boys, now we want to write history”

After four semi-finals lost – between world cup and European – England broke a spell lasting over half a century to reach Italy in the final of Euro 2020. A personal redemption for Gareth Southgate, guilty of the decisive penalty that had decreed the elimination of the Three Lions, in the European championship in 1996. “I am very proud of my players – commented the English coach -. We knew it would not be easy, and so it was. After the big victory over Ukraine I had told my boys that before or after. then we would have had to show a bit of resilience, maybe having to make up the score. I never doubted the team, I felt we would make it. Denmark has always been very underestimated, I consider them a great team, and this is a merit plus for my players, many of whom have limited international experience. “

NOW ITALY

Now the appointment on Sunday 11 July for the Wembley final. “The best thing about this evening is that we have given the fans and the whole country a fantastic night, an emotion that will last for four days. Italy? They have been showing great value for two years now. They have defenders that they are. real warriors, but the whole team is very strong. It will be another epic match. But we want to write our history. “
