The Three Lions face their toughest test yet in this summer’s rescheduled tournament as they face a team that is undefeated in 33 games.

Roberto Mancini’s side have beaten the likes of Belgium and Spain to get to the final, and England will need to be on top form to win.

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has impressed in the middle of the park for Italy, and ex-Arsenal and England midfielder Merson thinks the 29-year-old needs to be shut down for the Three Lions to be victorious.

‘England must stop Jorginho if they want to beat Italy and I don’t think it’s going to be a low-scoring game,’ Merson told the Daily Star.

‘Both teams have been so solid defensively in this tournament but they both have too much pace and movement upfront so I think there will be a lot of goals.

‘We have to stop that Italy midfield if we want to win the game because it’s that that makes them tick.

‘It all starts with Jorginho, who is having a brilliant tournament. He’s been everywhere, and he controls games with his passing.

‘England need to get after him because three passes from midfield and bang, they’re in.

‘These two teams have been the best at the Euros for me. But Italy will be worried about England because the home advantage of Wembley will be huge.

‘Italy have looked vulnerable in recent games. You knew they’d be under the cosh against Belgium because they’re the No 1 team in the world.

‘But Austria gave them a scare, and they were on the ropes against Spain until they showed their resilience, dug in, and found a way to win. We can beat them.’

Another Chelsea star that will be in the middle of the park is England Mason Mount.
