Euro 2020 final approaches, and here we are to decide the first team which will get a shot at glory at this very stage in five days. It is a clash that midfield admirers crave, putting the showmanship of Jorginho and co. with the Italian national team against the true and tested control via “tiki-taka” from Spain.

In fact we have not just Jorginho representing Chelsea via Azzurri but also left-back Emerson on the pitch for Roberto Mancini’s side. Meanwhile Blues captain César Azpilicueta starts for La Furia Roja at right-back.

Here we go!
