Ukraine manager Andriy Shevchenko identified the element that Italy bring which England have not yet faced at UEFA EURO 2020.

The Final is at Wembley Stadium on Sunday at 20.00 UK time.

“England are a good team, but so far they haven’t faced an opponent that has really tried to press them,” Shevchenko told Sky Sport Italia.

“That is something Italy do very well and can be a definite advantage for the Azzurri going into this Final.”

Former Milan and Chelsea striker Sheva experienced the only game that England did not play at Wembley in this tournament, at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, but Ukraine lost 4-0.

“The atmosphere will be a cauldron for England at Wembley in the Final. Every team has its weakness, though, and Italy will have studied England’s strengths and weaknesses before the game.”

England reached the Final with wins over Croatia and the Czech Republic, drawing Scotland 0-0, then beat Germany, Ukraine and needed extra time to defeat Denmark in the semi-final.
