Marco Verratti is not convinced England should have been awarded a penalty in their win over Denmark

Italy midfielder Marco Verratti is not convinced England should have been awarded a penalty in their EURO 2020 semi final win over Denmark on Wednesday at Wembley.

Speaking ahead of Sunday's final between both sides, Verratti however said the Three Lions deserved to win the game.

"I think England did a great job. They got to the final for the first time and this says a lot.

"Perhaps it was a bit of a generous penalty, but it is part of the picture in football. I think it was a bit of a generous penalty," Verratti added.

When asked about expectations for the final, the PSG player said playing England will be "an epic."


"I think Italy-England is always a huge match. There will be only one winner and I hope it will be us. We will give it our very best shot."

"They conceded only one goal, so it is a very solid team, great players, very balanced, and I think they did deserve to get to the final. Now it's all down to the final, which I think will be an epic final, and history-making either way,"
