The Italian talisman Spinazzola is a huge factor in the Italy-England clash in the Euro 2020 finals.
With Spinazzola present, England would very much be the underdogs. Without him, Italy looked weaker – so much that an un-fancied Spain side rode them bare back all the way to the stops, and beyond.
England won’t get to enjoy the home advantage, like they did in the semis’. They’ll feel the pressure of expectation on them.
Pickford especially, while imperious at times, sometimes wobbles under pressure – as often happens when in action for his Everton side.
The Italians will most certainly target him to exploit that possibility, as they may have learnt from the Danes.
The game is hard to accurately call in right away, though.
Italy boasts a better balance in the squad on the pitch.
While England is capable of explosive pace and a good natural finisher in Harry Kane, that doesn’t count much for a solid Italian defence.
How it swings, mostly depends on who can ride the pressure and settles in to playing their game first.
Oh, England has failed to beat Italy in their last six encounters at major tournaments.
It’s possible for a full time draw, and the odds are at 3.10.
