Italy vs England

  • The teams have faced each other 27 times, the Azzurri winning 11 to England’s eight, with eight draws.
  • Italy failed to win any of the sides’ first eight meetings; England have managed a solitary win in the last seven.
  • England suffered tournament-ending losses in both the teams’ previous EURO encounters. Marco Tardelli’s late goal earned the Azzurri hosts a 1-0 win in the 1980 group stage while Italy prevailed on penalties (remember Andrea Pirlo’s Panenka!) in the 2012 quarter-finals.
  • Italy have never lost to England at a major finals, with 2-1 FIFA World Cup victories in 1990 (third-place play-off) and 2014 (group stage) on top of those EURO triumphs.
