Prior to the game, confident Italian fans were chanting ‘It’s Coming Rome’.

Crowds gathered in central Rome on Sunday afternoon, hours ahead of the kick off at 8:00 p.m. BST. 

Supporters wearing Italy strips and face masks emblazoned with the country’s red white and green flag sang songs and waved flags in the streets.

Tickets for Rome’s two fan zones sold out in seconds after being made available at midnight. Around 3,000 spectators will be able to watch Roberto Mancini’s Azzurri in the zones.  

Cities elsewhere in Italy have banned public gatherings in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, while  Italy’s interior minister has also advised people to stay home to watch the game. 

In the absence of gatherings, buildings have been lit up in the tricolore and flags hung from balconies.

Meanwhile, in London, fans draped in Italian flags and face paint began trickling into Wembley Stadium, where 1,000 Italy fans have been allowed to attend the game.

Eugenio Copelli, 63, a railway worker from north London, was just one of the outnumbered Italian fans to make the pilgrimage to Wembley.

‘I’m not nervous today because I do believe we are going to win it. It is going back to Rome,’ he told AFP news agency.

Copelli had not bagged a ticket and would instead be watching with friends on a big screen elsewhere.

‘We will be drowning our sorrows in coffee or drinking champagne,’ he joked. 

At Wembley, fans held signs bearing the message: ‘It’s Coming Rome’ while one pair held a banner taunting that England had ‘More Variants than finals’. 

While most where decked out in Italy’s strip or the red, white and green, some fans opted for other iconic looks – a centurion, several Super Marios and even a Pope could be spotted in the stands. 

Crowds of Italian fans also gathered at Bar Italia in London’s Soho to cheer on their team.

Despite a superior track record in tournament football, Italy’s match against England is suspected to be a nail biter, with the Three Lions playing on home turf surrounded by tens of thousands of cheering fans.

England are desperate to cinch an historic win in the match – the first major final for the England men’s team since 1966 – but Italy, unbeaten in 33 matches, could dash their hopes.

Italians allowed to attend have to travel in and out of the UK on Sunday and remain in a bubble at all times with no contact with the general public.

They will also have to quarantine for five days upon returning home to Italy.  

Rules for VIP guests will be looser, with a number spending a week in London in designated hotels.

The VIPs are expected to be in isolation when not attending official Euro 2020 events, The Guardian reported.   

Social media users predicted an Italy win and blasted the behaviour of England fans ahead of the match.

‘I’ve changed my mind, I’m for Italy,’ one Twitter user wrote alongside a video of England fans throwing bottles and setting off flares in a litter-filled square hours ahead of the match.

‘This is why I root for Italy’ another commented.

Some England fans have since attempted to storm the ground, breaking through a security barrier at Wembley. In a statement, UEFA said the fans did not gain access to the stadium. 

Scottish fans, known to support whichever team is playing England, were firmly behind Italy, with social media users promising to ‘stop deep frying pizza’ if Italy lifts the cup. 

Mancini has made no changes to his team, keeping the same line up that claimed victory over Spain in the semi finals.

England’s Gareth Southgate had made one change, swapping Bukayo Saka out for Kieran Trippier.
