An insight into the standout performers in England’s squad, statistically, ahead of tonight’s Euro 2020 finale, has been forthcoming online.
Azzurri in the way
Gareth Southgate’s men are of course set to return to action later today, in the nation’s most high-profile fixture for over half a century.
The clash in question will see the Three Lions welcome Italy to Wembley, to vie out out for the crown of European football’s finest international outfit.
England’s journey to the showpiece has proven an impressive one, featuring five wins from six, just a solitary goal conceded, and downings of the likes of Croatia and Germany.
Italy, though, will likely prove the toughest test to date for Gareth Southgate and co.
The Azzurri are too in the midst of a frankly remarkable spell of form, having rattled off 16 straight wins in the Euros (including qualifying), culminating in an eye-watering 33-game unbeaten streak across all competitions.
Maguire leads the way
As such, it goes without saying that England’s key performers will need to be at their very best at Wembley this evening, if they truly hope to bring an end to the nation’s 55-year wait for silverware.
Whilst attentions turn towards the fast-approaching action in the capital, though, an insight, as outlined above, has today been provided into which members of Southgate’s squad stood out above all others, en route to their showdown with the Azzurri.
