Italy can lift two trophies today in London

If luck supported, Italians can win two trophies in London today

Today Italy can lift two different trophies in London _ Euro-2020 and Wimbledon tennis which are taking place in London.

Italy will take on England in the final of the Euro 2020 at Wembley today (July 10/Sunday), aiming to lift their second continental football trophy. However, the footballers are not the only Italians vying for silverware in London on Sunday. Matteo Berrettini, 25, will become the first Italian to play in a singles final at Wimbledon when he takes on five-time champion Novak Djokovic on Centre Court at Wimbledon.

Berrettini claimed a 6-3, 6-0, 6-7, 6-4 win in the semis over Polish opponent Hubert Hurkacz, who had knocked out eight-time champion Roger Federer in the quarter-finals. Berrettini said Italians should make sure they have a nice TV for what he promises to be a special Sunday for the sport-mad nation.

“I will tell them to buy a nice TV if they don’t have one already because I think it’s going to be a special Sunday for all of us,” Berrettini said when asked about the seismic sporting Sunday in which he will play a leading role.

“It’s something crazy to believe for us, obviously let’s say tennis, because it’s never happened. So it’s something that nobody expected – me in the first place.

“Then for football, because I mean, we didn’t qualify for the World Cup [in 2018], so after that the job that they did, how hard they worked, the effort that they put, I think they really deserve this final.”

Berrettini will be a huge underdog in his first Grand Slam final against the Serb who is playing his 30th. The Euro 2020 final, however, looks too close to call.
