England will face off against Italy in the Euro 2020 Final today, following a nail-biting 2-1 victory in the semi-final against Denmark.

Fans have gone wild across the country as this is England’s first time in the Euro final ever – and their first major tournament final since winning the World Cup 55 years ago.

The Three Lions are preparing for their toughest match yet as Italy have a better track record than England at the Euros.

This year, the Italians have scored 86 goals over the 33 match unbeaten run, conceding just 10.

But how many times have they won at major tournaments?

How many times have Italy won the Euros?

Italy have only won the Euros once themselves.

They won the competition back in 1968, beating Yugoslavia 2-0.

However, unlike England who have never made it past the quarter-finals until now, Italy have made it to the final on two other occasions.

They were runners up at Euro 2000 and 2012.

England last made it to the quarter-finals in 2012, being knocked out by Italy.

If anyone thinks that is a bad omen, worry not.

Germany have the best track record by far at the Euro tournament, having won it three times and coming runner-up three other times.

Yet that didn’t stop England beating them 2-0 this year.

How many times have Italy won the World Cup?

Italy have had more success in the World Cup.

They are joint-second with the most World Cup wins ever, having won the title four times: 1934, 1938, 1982 and 2006.

Germany have also won the World Cup four times.

The only country to have won it more – with five wins – is Brazil, who won in 2002, 1994, 1970, 1962 and 1958.

England won the World Cup in 1966 and their best performance since then has been finishing fourth place in 1990 and 2018.

Watch the England v Italy Euro 2020 final match today at 8pm on BBC One and ITV.
