England face Italy in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday evening and a piece of history is now within touching distance for Gareth Southgate’s side.

The Three Lions made difficult work of Denmark in midweek, with Harry Kane’s penalty rebound eventually enough to see off the challenge of Kasper Hjulmand’s men.

The Azzurri, meanwhile, edged past Spain courtesy of a penalty shootout and will be confident they can claim the trophy at Wembley.

Is football finally coming home? Or will Italy ruin the party as they attempt to extended their unbeaten streak to 34 games? Squawka has picked out a ‘shot on target treble’ with Betfair (18+ only) to assess which players we expect to shine on the big occasion.

RAB selection 1: Lorenzo Insigne 1+ right footed shot on target

Reasoning: Lorenzo Insigne has had more shots on target than any other Italy player at Euro 2020 (six in five games) and has had 10 shots on target in 11 competitive games for his national side this season. 100% of his total shots at Euro 2020 have been with his right foot (13/13).

RAB selection 2: Raheem Sterling 1+ right footed shot on target

Reasoning: The Manchester City forward has had the joint most shots on target for England at Euro 2020 (8), while only Alvaro Morata and Patrik Schick have had more during the tournament (both 9). 10 of Sterling’s 12 total shots at the tournament have been with his right foot (83%).

RAB selection 3: Harry Maguire 1+ headed shot on target

Reasoning: The towering defender has had four shots on target in the three knockout round games so far, with all four of his shots on target being headers. All seven of his overall attempts at Euro 2020 have been with his (slab) head.
