Final: Italy vs England (11 July)
Predicted line-up: Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Rice, Phillips; Saka, Mount, Sterling; Kane

Simon Hart, England reporter: Gareth Southgate has yet to select an unchanged team during this tournament but, since the final group fixture against the Czech Republic, he has simply made small tweaks – with a single change for each of the three knockout matches, most recently with Bukayo Saka coming back in for the semi-final in place of Jadon Sancho, and doing well with his buccaneering runs. Will we see the same XI on Sunday? The pattern would suggest not, but equally, don’t expect too much tinkering either.

Starting line-up: Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Phillips, Rice; Saka, Mount, Sterling; Kane

Italy

Final: Italy vs England (11 July)
Predicted line-up: Donnarumma, Di Lorenzo, Bonucci, Chiellini, Emerson; Barella, Jorginho, Verratti; Chiesa, Immobile, Insigne

Paolo Menicucci, Italy reporter: I don’t see big surprises in the Italy starting XI for the final. Emerson should continue to replace the injured Leonardo Spinazzola as left-back while Giovanni di Lorenzo has done enough to be confirmed as right-back ahead of the now-fit-again Alessandro Florenzi. There are no doubts regarding the veteran centre-backs and the midfield trio. Federico Chiesa has also booked his place in the starting XI with the goal against Spain. Same thing for Ciro Immobile? Some Italian media believe that Roberto Mancini could switch to Andrea Belotti or even Lorenzo Insigne as ‘false nine’ but I think the Lazio striker will have another chance to leave his mark when it counts the most.
