Italy win Championship on penalties-Sports News , Justnewsday
Catch the live score and updates from the Euro 2020 final between Italy and England at London’s Wembley Stadium
Preview: Kieran Trippier has been recalled to the England team for Sunday’s Euro 2020 final at Wembley against Italy, who are unchanged from their semi-final win on penalties against Spain.
Atletico Madrid full-back Trippier replaces Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka in a change that will see England manager Gareth Southgate revert to the five-man defence that he used in the 2-0 win over Germany in the last 16.
Trippier has since been used off the bench in the wins over Ukraine in the last eight and against Denmark in the semi-final on Wednesday.
England are otherwise unchanged and Harry Kane, who scored the extra-time winner against Denmark, captains a side that is looking to win the country’s first major international tournament since the 1966 World Cup in front of an expected crowd of 67,500.
Italy, who are themselves chasing a first European Championship crown since 1968, go with the same line-up that started against Spain with Emerson Palmieri of Chelsea continuing at left-back in place of the injured Leonardo Spinazzola.
