After beating Denmark in the semi-finals, England have booked their spot in Sunday's Euro 2020 final against Italy

Gareth Southgate's side fell behind to a stunning Mikkel Damsgaard free-kick, but they turned it around to reach their first major final since the 1966 World Cup.

They come up against an Italy side in supreme form, with their penalties victory over Spain on Tuesday extending their staggering record to 33 games unbeaten. 

The match will once again be played at Wembley Stadium in front of an expected 60,000 fans, which England fans will hope gives their team the advantage once more. 

However, though beating the likes of Germany and a stubborn Denmark, this will be England's toughest test to date.

Italy were one of two teams, alongside England, who didn't concede a goal throughout the group stages, where they breezed to top spot in Group A. 

It was Azzuri who got the tournament underway on June 11 in Rome, as they waltzed past a hapless Turkey in an impressive opening display. 

Then came another routine 3-0 victory, this time against Switzerland. At the time, many noted Italy's impressive performance but were skeptical about the quality of their opponents. However, Switzerland qualified from the group and knocked pre-tournament favourites France out in the last-16, before losing in a penalty shootout to Spain in the quarter-finals. 

Italy took on Austria for a place in the quarter-finals, where they needed extra-time after drawing 0-0 in the initial 90 minutes. 

Goals from Federico Chiesa - who has had a fine tournament - and Matteo Pessina gave the Italian an unassailable 2-0 lead, before Austria pulled back what proved to be a consolation goal with six minutes to play. 

Then came Italy's toughest test to date, and they passed the challenge with flying colours in beating Belgium 2-1, conceding only due to a controversial penalty awarded on the stroke of half-time.    

Italy were once again taken to extra-time in the semi-finals, which eventually went to penalties after Alvaro Morata cancelled out Chiesa's opener. 

There, Jorginho slotted in the winning spot-kick after Morata missed his effort, as Mancini's side booked a final date at Wembley.
