Marco Verratti believes that the Euro 2020 final between England and Italy will be an epic match. Verratti revealed that England were the better of the two teams in the semifinal against Denmark. He did feel that it was “a bit of a generous penalty”. Joakim Maehle was adjudged to have brought down Raheem Sterling in the box in extra time. Harry Kane stepped up but had his penalty saved by Kasper Schmeichel. Unfortunately for the keeper, the ball rolled back to Kane who slotted into an empty net.
“Perhaps it was a bit of a generous penalty, but it is part of the picture in football. I think it was a bit of a generous penalty.” Marco Verratti said about the penalty given in the semifinal to England at Euro 2020. “I think England did a great job. They got to the final for the first time and this says a lot. They conceded only one goal, so it is a very solid team, great players, very balanced, and I think they did deserve to get to the final. Now it’s all down to the final, which I think will be an epic final, and history-making either way.”
“England is a very physical team, and they have players who are very skilled as well. We will face a very, very tough team, they will be playing at home, they know the stadium well. But it is a dream for us to win this European Championship.” he added. ”Surely the supporters will factor in somehow, but we’re all professional players, we know what it is to play in fan-packed stadiums, and somehow this will drive us as well. We will be happy about it too – it’s great to play in a packed stadium. I think Italy-England is always a huge match. There will be only one winner and I hope it will be us. We will give it our very best shot.”
