Key Players:

Analysis:

The two sides will meet for a third successive European Championship and this one is perhaps the closest to differentiate between the two teams and pick a winner. It is likely that a few minutes of individual brilliance will be able to separate the two teams over the course of 90 minutes or if it goes into extra time. Given the consistency they have shown, Italy should step in thinking that the final is their but Spain are also capable of disrupting the opposition's rhythm and cannot just be counter out. Other then Ferran Torres and Ciro Immobile, Alvaro Morata and Lorezo Insigne could be the other key players to watch out for and may even be considered for captain and vice-captain choices.
