Italy (ITA) vs England (ENG) Dream11 Fantasy Suggestions
Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling have been sensational for England at Euro 2020 and have pivotal roles to play in this fixture. Lorenzo Insigne has also scored some excellent goals for Italy this year and his ability to step up on the big stage holds him in good stead ahead of this game.
Federico Chiesa’s sensational strike against Spain was crucial in the context of the game and effectively gave Italy a route to the final. Marco Verratti had a few problems against Luis Enrique’s midfield but should be able to exert his influence in this game.
Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw are two of England’s most important players at the moment and have also contributed in the final third. Italy, on the other hand, rely on their defensive old guard in Chiellini and Bonucci and will hope that their veterans can bring their experience to the fore this weekend.
