In the last of the European Championships 2020 quarterfinals, England will take on Ukraine in Rome looking to book their spot in the semi-finals to play the winners between a resilient Czech Republic and surprising Denmark.
Jordan Pickford has continued his good run of form to end the season and keeps his place in the starting XI. Dominic Calvert-Lewin was a surprise omission from the matchday squad in the win over Germany, despite being the most similar backup option to captain Harry Kane, but is on the bench today.
England are yet to concede in their first four games, matching Germany’s feat from Euro 2016. Italy managed to go five games unbreached in World Cup 1990 which they hosted. Of their last three quarter final games at the Euros, all three have gone to extra time and a penalty shootout, with the Three Lions beating Spain in 1996, but losing to Portugal in 2004 and Italy in 2012.

The two sides last met in 2013 with the game ending in a 0-0 draw in Kiev. England have won four and drawn two of their last seven meetings. The only time the pair have played in a major tournament was in Euro 2012 with Wayne Rooney scoring the winner in their group stages clash. Don’t expect too many goals today, with only four being scored in total in their last four duels.
