PREDICTING Italy v England EURO 2020 Final + Messi v Neymar in Copa America!

by smart

it’s italy versus england in the euro 2020 final plus messi and neymar face off against each other as argentine then take on brazil for the copper america crown that and more coming up in the next few minutes as i’m your host matt foley you are the one footballers and this is the daily news first up and it’s to wembley stadium for the final of euro 2020 as england playing a villain in this year’s competition take on the italian side who let’s be honest have been the best team over the last few weeks having said that this is football and i didn’t expect the czech republic to beat netherlands a few games ago and that happened so what do i know the fact that italy had done so well in this tournament is in stark contrast to what happened in 2018 well they didn’t even make the world cup but since then roberto mancini side have been on fire they’ve gone unbeaten in the competition in fact they’re unbeaten in their last 33 international matches they beat top of the fifa rankings belgium to make it this far they also went past spain on penalties they’ve won every single game this tournament they’ve been so so good and they’ve also made their 10th major final with sunday’s game in fact this is their fourth major final in the european championship alone i think it’s this that is really going to help italy mentally they are just there they know how to deal with these finals with the pressure they know how to navigate big matches and even bigger occasions they’ve got experience as a nation but they’ve also got experienced players experienced managers who have won so many things over such elongated careers especially with the likes of kilini and benucci at the back and of course mancini is the manager as well it may just give them this mental edge before they even walk out to the pitch over in england side who are very very inexperienced when it comes to this level of competition in fact this is the first final for the three lions since they won the world cup in 1966. gary southgate’s men though may look to this as a bit of a positive he’s been saying that this is the chance for this squad to write their own history and not be so burdened by the past maybe their fearlessness and their lack of worry about what went on before for england may help them in the final to be a bit more braver and to go out and attack the italians of course this is a chance for england to gain a little bit of revenge after italy knocked them out on penalties in euro 2012 and then beat them in the group stages of the world cup in 2014. throughout the tournament england have done very well defensively and it’s not necessarily something you’d associate with the side in fact that miguel damsgard won the free kick was the first goal that they conceded in euro 2020 despite this though italy take brilliant defending to the next level they’ve also ridiculously quick on the counter attack and they’ve got a midfield three who boss the ball but also dictate the tempo and the pressing when they don’t have the ball as well italy basically when you look at each position on the pitch defense midfield attack are just a bit stronger than england but like i mentioned before it’s a game of football and absolutely anything can happen despite this though when it comes to making my match prediction and i want to be positive for england and hope that they’ll be able to bring it home i still think that italy are just gonna do it it’s gonna be a one-nil victory for the italians and it’s gonna seal another title and moving on from this depending on where you are whether it’s saturday night or very very early sunday morning the copper america will come to a close as well with the final in the american house between argentina and brazil now brazil at the moment looking to take home their tenth title and honestly the fact that it’s on home saw and the fact they’ve been playing so well and they’ve got a player known as neymar in the side pretty much makes them favorites of course we’ll get onto leonard messi in just a little bit but when you look at the history as well surely this will be brazil’s tournament to take home alongside him they’ve also got lucas piquette and casemiro who have been brilliant in midfield and marquinhos performances along with the last few years of psg really give him a good chance of claiming to be the best centre-back in the world that is a rather strong debate but you guys can let me know in the comment section down below having said that on the other side there is argentina and of course leona messi has been on fire in fact argentina has scored 11 goals at this tournament messi’s got four goals five assists and two pre-assists which is the pass to the player who then assists the goal meaning he’s had a hand in all 11 goals but it’s not just leonel messi there’s the midfield trio of paredes los celso and de powell as well who have all been very very exciting and brought some fast attacking football to the argentinian side the slight problem that we have when it comes to the tactics of the game is that they don’t have a natural man mark or defensive midfielder perez has been filling in that role but he’s no masjirana for example that may mean it’ll be a little tricky to pin down neymar and to keep a close eye on him but if they do approach the argentinian goal they will find a goalkeeper in fantastic form emmy martinez is the semi-final hero after saving three penalties against colombia and in fact he’s the eighth goalkeeper that’s been tried out in goal for argentina since the 2018 world cup and finally it looks like they found their man to keep between the sticks the thing is for argentina i’m not sure they’re favorites because they just have not won a major competition since 1993 and it’ll be so difficult for them to go over the fact that they’ve lost quite a few finals since then in fact felina messi himself if you take away the olympic gold medal he’s lost the final in 2007 in the copper america the 2014 world cup and the 2015 and 16 copper america finals this could realistically be his last copper america appearance and i’m sure he and the team will want to win it for him in fact if he does win it does that mean he’s got the strongest claim for the ballon d’or this season no maybe so like i mentioned history will tell you that argentina who have not beaten brazil in brazil since 1998 will fall at the final hurdle and i think that’s the way it’s going to go in a very close game that brazil will win 2-1 so there you have my predictions you guys let me know yours in the comment section down below check out everything else we’ve got going on one football and until next time enjoy both finals this weekend and i will see you guys later [Music]
