England v Italy Tips: Luke Shaw + another 21 tips
England v Italy Tips: Luke Shaw + another 21 tips

The Euro 2021 final is rapidly approaching and to the whole nation's surprise, England are actually in it! It’s going to be a nervy affair but everyone in the country will be tuned in on Sunday. We’ve decided to break down each player on both teams and picked out a bet to go along with them. From assists, anytime scorers and bookings all the way to Player of the Tournament, hopefully this list covers everything you need.

Starting off with Italy…

Quick links:

Gianluigi Donnarumma

Despite only being 22 years of age, Gianluigi Donnarumma has already racked up 261 senior appearances for club and 32 appearances for his country. Some bookies have him as the favourite for the Young Player of the Year award and rightfully so as he has been exceptional during this tournament. You can currently get 6/5 for him to win the Young Player of the Tournament with Bet Victor where they have Pedri as the favourite.

England v Italy odds

Leonardo Bonucci

Bonucci is a centre half who doesn’t shy away from an effort on goal. He’s currently average 0.66 shots per game for Italy and surprisingly a lot of those have come from outside the box. The bookies have him at 9/2 for a shot on target but I think a selection that you could add to any of your Bet Builders would be him just to have a shot at 10/11.

Giorgio Chiellini

Chiellini is like a fine Italian wine, only gets better with age. He’s been a rock at the back for Azzurri but the defender isn’t shy of a booking. Though he’s not picked one up yet at Euro 2021, he’s managed to rack up 112 throughout his career and with this being one of the most important games of his career and the hardest so far this tournament, 11/4 for a booking might be a decent play. Also, considering he is a fan favourite at the moment, 20/1 could be massive for him to win the Man of the Match award. He’s no doubt been one of Italy’s best players and a solid defensive showing in a final could be enough to win it.


It’s no secret that Emerson is a full-back that loves to bomb forward and have a dig at goal. He’s actually averaging 1.5 shots per game for Italy at the moment and with Spinazzola being injured he’s most likely to start at left-back. He actually even hit the bar against Spain which in my opinion makes the 23/10 for a shot on target look even more appealing. Alternatively you can go for him to have just the two shots at 5/2 which might appeal to more if you don’t like the shots on target market. 

Giovanni Di Lorenzo

Napoli’s Di Lorenzo has found himself starting most of the games for Azzurri and has been a solid option at right-back. In the Serie A this season he managed to pick up 11 bookings in 36 games and at the price of 3/1 for a booking, I think this is a solid shout. England’s left hand side is either going to be Raheem Sterling or Jack Grealish and having to defend against one of them is no easy task.

Nicolo Barella

Nicolo Barella has been hailed as one of the best young midfielders in the world and he’s proving just that at Euro 2021. With a respectable goal and two assists so far in this campaign, it’s easy to see why he’s starting nearly every match. His odds to score or assist in the final are actually really high to my surprise and they both could be worth a punt. He’s 9/1 for an assist which is surprising considering he already has two and 17/2 for a goal anytime. The assists might be a better play considering how high the odds are.

Marco Verratti

Verratti is proving once again why he is simply one of the best midfielders in the world. He’s been absolutely stunning to watch so far this tournament and it’s to no surprise that he is currently averaging the best performance rating out of the whole Italy squad. In my opinion he’d be a great bet for the man of the match market where he’s currently priced at a whopping 20/1. Even though I’m full of praise for this man, he absolutely loves a card. He’s always fairly short in the card market and this time is no different as he is the shortest price out of anyone for a booking. With 125 cards in 425 games it’s clear to see why he’s such a short price.

Marco Verratti to be man of the match

Jorginho is another player who is on everyone’s radar after how he’s performed so far at Euro 2021. Many people are having him as the Player of the Tournament not just for Italy but for the whole tournament. He’s currently priced at 9/1 to win the award which could be a great play if Italy are to win the game comfortably. Alternatively, another big price for Jorginho is for Italy to score a penalty. Jorginho scored the winning penalty in the shoot out against Spain and what a penalty it was. No one was surprised that Jorginho scored but the manner in which he did it was ice cold. 

Lorenzo Insigne

Insigne, a player famous for the classic FIFA right foot finesse shots. As a winger he’s incredibly direct and loves to have a shot on goal from that left hand side. Although he’s a very smaaaaaaall man he’s absolutely lethal with that right foot and the bookies are pricing him up at 8/11 for a right-footed shot on target which sounds good to me. He’s averaging 3.3 shots per game with his right-foot and 0.3 shots per game with his left. Not much else to say when you see those stats!

Federico Chiesa

This man is simply relentless. I think he’s been absolutely quality for Italy and not just that, he shoots at just about any chance he gets. He recorded two shots on target against Spain and it was priced at 16/5 then, for him to do it against England he’s priced at an even bigger 4/1 which could definitely be worth a punt. Mancini clearly likes the man as he played 107 minutes the other day and was the last forward to be taken off, so the fact that he should play all 90 minutes makes this bet even more attractive.

Federico Chiesa 2+ shots on target
Odds correct as of 2021-07-09 16:45 Odds subject to change.

Ciro Immobile

In my opinion one of the most underrated strikers in the world. His goal scoring is simply outrageous as of late, he’s scored 150 goals and assisted 43 times in 210 games for Lazio which is absolutely bonkers. If you fancy him in the goalscoring market you’re getting 5/2 for a goal anytime which isn’t too bad for a striker however, he doesn’t take penalties for Italy so I think there could be value in a 9/1 assist given his record for Lazio.

And now to England...

Best English Player Bets

Player bet
Jordan Pickford To keep a clean sheet @ 6/4 with Paddy Power
Luke Shaw Anytime assist @ 11/2 with Paddy Power
Harry Maguire 1+ shot on target @ 12/5 with Paddy Power
John Stones To keep a clean sheet @ 6/4 with Paddy Power
Kyle Walker Man of the match @ 33/1 with Bet365
Declan Rice To be carded @ 3/1 with Paddy Power
Kalvin Phillips To be carded @ 9/2 with Paddy Power
Raheem Sterling Player of the tournament @ 7/4 with Paddy Power
Bakary Saka Anytime assist @ 11/2 with Betfair
Mason Mount 1+ shot on target from outside the box @ 9/4 with Paddy Power
Harry Kane 2+ goals @ 9/1 with Betfred

Jordan Pickford

The man that is going to win the ‘Golden Glove’, Jordan Pickford! No one will have kept more clean sheets at Euro 2021 than England’s man between the sticks which is a stunning achievement. England have kept a clean sheet in all but one of their games this tournament and for them to keep another clean sheet against Italy is 6/4. Given how cagey England’s games can be and their solid back line the value may well be there!

Luke Shaw

Shaw has been quality all season for Man Utd and the form has certainly transferred over to the Euros. No player in the history of the tournament has ever recorded more than four assists in a single campaign and Luke Shaw can get his name on the list of people with four with another assist. We’re looking at 11/2 for a Shaw assist which I’ve backed a few times this tournament and it’s landed. He’s normally shorter than 11/2 and in all fairness since it’s a final it’s going to be bigger.

Odds correct as of 2021-07-09 16:50 Odds subject to change.

Harry Maguire

Maguire A.K.A Slab Head is a serious threat from corners and set pieces and proved that against Ukraine and even registered a shot on target against Denmark, if it wasn’t for a worldie save from Schmeichel then Maguire would have another goal to his name. We’ve backed it a few times on this website and I wouldn’t be against backing it again here, 1+ shot on target for Maguire is priced at 12/5. Harry is actually averaging 1.8 shots a game so far at the Euros so if you alternatively fancy the regular shots market, he’s priced at 16/5 for 2+ shots which also does look a decent price.

John Stones

Stones has been a rock for both Man City and England this season and he's the reason for five clean sheets in six games for England so far this tournament. He managed to keep 14 clean sheets in the Premier League this season and he only played 22 games in the league. The 6/4 play for a clean sheet seems really solid with the defence that England have and with the stats behind Stones and his clean sheets.

Kyle Walker

Walker was stunning against Denmark especially late on in the game where he was sprinting all over the place. If he’s full of confidence from that result and plays anything like he did against the Danes, he could be worth a shout for Man of the Match. He was England’s fourth best performer according to Whoscored and the bookies are pricing him up at a whopping 33/1 for Man of the Match

Declan Rice

Declan Rice has proved to the world that he’s one of the best in his position despite his age. He’s been incredibly reliable for England every game and has worked incredibly well alongside Kalvin Phillips. Although he’s not known for picking up many cards, against a midfield of Jorginho and Verratti he could very well get involved in some sort of altercation with then. He’s currently priced at 3/1 for a card which sounds reasonable to me.

Kalvin Phillips

The 'Yorkshire Pirlo' has surprised everyone this summer. Many wouldn’t have picked him in the squad at all and here he is running the midfield with Rice. Phillips has been playing incredibly well so far but he’s still a danger when it comes to a dirty tackle. He’s already been booked once this tournament and that’s because of how many challenges he’s been putting in. A rather alarming stat is that he’s averaging 1.7 fouls per game which is surely going to result in a card against the rather theatrical Italian players. 9/2 for a card seems like a good play.

Raheem Sterling

Raheem Sterling is the man, simple as that. He carried England through the earlier stages of the tournament where they lacked a bit of creativity and confidence scoring their first three goals. He’s currently the 2nd top scorer for England with Harry Kane and him on four and many people are calling for Raheem to be the player of the tournament, and I simply would have to agree. If England are to win the whole thing, surely Sterling would be in a shout for Player of the Tournament. He’s the current 7/4 favourite to win Player of the Tournament and honestly, why not?

Bakary Saka

Another youngster that has been brilliant for England when he’s played. It’ll be tough to call whether it’s going to be him or Jadon Sancho to start but since Saka started the last game we’ll go with him. The Arsenal player has recorded 10 assists for club so far and assisted once for England at Euro 2020. He’s got a wonderful cross on him and his passing wonderfully. He’s averaging 1.4 key passes a game for England at the moment and with that stat it makes the 11/2 for an assist look very tempting!

Mason Mount

Money Mase! Mount is one of the more creative players in the England side and despite his young age, he’s a commanding player for both Chelsea and England now. His shot averages are currently as follows. 0.8 shots from outside the box per game, 0.8 shots from inside the penalty area a game. With them both being the same average, 9/4 for a shot on target from outside the area looks like the value play if you consider that he’s 5/6 for a shot on target normally. You’re getting more than double the odds for one from outside the area which is where he likes to have a pop from.

Harry Kane

The main man up top, England’s top scorer, the top scorer at the World Cup and one goal away being the top scorer at Euro 2021. Despite a slow start for Harry Kane he’s well and truly hit form scoring four goals in his last three games for England. Many people would have backed him for top scorer at the Euros and he can still definitely do it if he scores a brace. He’s 7/2 for the Golden Boot award but your payout will be split with three others if he only scores one. The value in my opinion is with the brace. Kane is currently 9/1 for a brace against Italy which sounds a lot more attractive than backing him for the Golden Boot at 7/2.
