England and Italy will meet for the 28th time on Sunday to battle it out for victory in the Euro 2020 final. Historically, these two teams have often shared the pitch, but it's Italy who have come out on top most often. Gli Azzurri have won 11 games, with England celebrating eight times and sharing the points on another eight occasions.
Here's a look back at every encounter between England and Italy before the big day.

The last time these two teams met was in March 2018, when VAR intervened to prevent England from winning.


Early on, Jamie Vardy handed England a deserved advantage, and Gareth Southgate's side fought to keep it until the 86th minute, when VAR awarded Italy a penalty after a foul by James Tarkowski.


It wasn't exactly the glaring blunder it was designed to correct, but Lorenzo Insigne didn't seem to mind as he stepped up to score the penalty and earn a point.
