Key Players

Lorenzo Insigne (Italy)

Lorenzo Insigne has emerged as Italy’s main focal point of attack in this Euro 2020.The Napoli winger curled a beautiful one past the Belgian defence speaks volumes about his calibre.

With Lorenzo Spinazzola missing out from the remainder of the tournament with an injury the left side of Italy’s attack will be completely in his control.

Sergio Busquets (Spain):

Sergio Busquets will not have an easy outing against the in-form Italy. The midfielder will be up against the formidable Jorginho and Marco Verratti and the battle will be won in the middle of the pitch.

Busquets’ introduction saw Spain ramping up their game and the Barcelona midfielder will play an influential role.

Harry Kane (England):

England’s most prolific goal scorer has found his rhythm at last and has already bagged three goals in two matches. Kane’s back to form will be a huge sigh of relief for Gareth Southgate who is eyeing a place in the coveted final which is to be played at Wembley.

Kasper Dolberg (Denmark):

Kasper Dolberg has been in a rich vein of form and has already joined the elite list with three goals in his kitty. His intelligent movement off the ball and his knack of making darting runs into the box could prove to be a handful for the defenders.
