The Euro 2020 competition has advanced to the finals, which will be played on July 11. Here’s a look at how the bracket shaped up as the competition moves another round closer to crowning a champion.
Italy was excellent so far during this EURO. With a win against Belgium, they had 15 consecutive victories in the EURO qualifiers and tournament, which was the new record on the continent. Overall, they have 33 games in a row without a defeat and want to make one more step and crown that incredible run. There is no doubt that the biggest factor for this success is Roberto Mancini, who put together all the pieces of the puzzle, creating one of the most devastating units this nation had. We have to admit that Azzurri aren’t playing as before. They are a team that knows to dominate and are often imposing a high-intensity tempo in the field.
England hit back after conceding the first goal in the tournament against Denmark. Harry Kane and his boys fought back to eliminate fan-favorites Denmark, though after one very suspicious penalty. Realistically, that wasn’t a penalty, but England overcame the Danes anyway. The Three Lions didn’t lose for 12 straight games, and during that span, they would concede just two goals, having 10 clean sheets. What is also noticeable in their matches is the inefficiency, as seven of the past eight ended with very few goals on average.
