The Italy vs England live stream will bring us the final of Euro 2020 from London's Wembley Stadium today (Sunday, July 11) after 50 gruelling and often thrilling games.

The teams have been announced and England coach Gareth Southgate has gone with a five-man defense, as he did against Germany in the last 16. That means winger Bukayo Saka misses out, with Kieran Trippier coming in at right wing back. Phil Foden was injured in training and doesn't make the substitutes bench.

Italy are unchanged from the side that beat Spain in their semi-final on Tuesday, with their only absentee being Leonardo Spinazzola, who was injured against Belgium.

Here are the line-ups:

Italy: Donnarumma, Di Lorenzo, Bonucci, Chiellini, Emerson, Barella, Jorginho, Verratti, Chiesa, Immobile, Insigne.

Subs: Sirigu, Locatelli, Belotti, Berardi, Pessina, Acerbi, Cristante, Bernardeschi, Bastoni, Florenzi, Toloi, Meret.

England: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Trippier, Phillips, Rice, Shaw, Mount, Sterling, Kane.

Subs: Grealish, Henderson, Rashford, Ramsdale, Mings, Coady, Sancho, Calvert-Lewin, Johnstone, James, Saka, Bellingham.

Both sides have faced a tough time reaching this stage, with Italy needing a penalty shoot out to beat Spain in their semi-final, while England only overcame Denmark 2-1 thanks to a generous penalty of their own.  

England are the favorites with DraftKings: they're down at -134 to win, with Italy at +115. Home advantage is a factor here, as is England's easier route to the final, with Italy having needed extra time in their previous two games.  

Whoever wins, it promises to be a classic: England haven't won a major trophy (or even been in a final) since 1966, while Italy will be looking to take their first Euro title since 1968.

It all kicks off at 8 p.m. BST (3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT) and the good news is that you can watch the entire Italy vs England live stream for free, regardless of where you are in the world. So here's how to watch the Euro 2020 final.

You can also catch up on the full fixture list, TV schedule and more via our main how to watch Euro 2020 hub.

How to watch the Italy vs England live stream from outside your country

It's natural that you might want to watch the Euro 2020 final coverage from your home country, but what if you're not there when the game is on?

Look no further than a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.

For instance, a Brit who's currently in the U.S. could watch the Italy vs England live stream from on the BBC iPlayer or ITV Hub, even though they're not in the U.K. 

They're totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is ExpressVPN. It's fast, works on loads of devices and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. 

Speed, security and simplicity make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 94 countries. Plus, there's a 30-day money-back guarantee.View Deal

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view a U.K. service, you'd select U.K. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to the ITV Hub or another website and watch the game.
