Head coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, Gernot Rohr has tipped England to beat Italy in Sunday’s final of Euro 2020.
The German tactician stated this in an interview with The Nation, where he revealed that the Three Lions will have a slim edge over their Italian counterpart.
Recall that England defeated Denmark 2-1 in the semi-final, while Italy saw off and Spain 4-2 on penalties after the game had ended 1-1 in 120 minutes.
However, Rohr opined that the England team under coach Gareth Southgate is a complete team and that they will win on Sunday.
“Of course, England is favourite at home.
“They are a complete team, physically and tactically on the top. The fans are a big support, but I regretted their attitude to whistle the opponents, even the national anthem.
“I think that Italy can be a winning outsider, solid block-playing with fast counterattacks.
“Both teams can play with three or four in the defense. A lot of teams now have a 3-4-3 or 3-5-2 organization, evolution, defending, and attacking together.
“So, a nice final on Sunday.”
