England fans could be encouraged to know that white shirts were lucky at Euro 2020
Roberto Mancini’s men wore blue-white-blue only with this tournament, in the group stage victory with 1-0 over Wales.
Meanwhile, England have worn only white-blue-white in the last two qualifiers against Ukraine and Denmark, after wearing a completely white offer for the first four matches of the tournament.
Gareth Southgate’s men could be encouraged to know that the teams that play in white have won all nine matches that were played in that color during Euro 2020.
Jordan Pickford last wore the green color when the three lions faced the Czech Republic
Gianluigi Donnarumma keeps the yellow card and sees it saving Alvaro Morata’s penalty
As for the goalkeepers, Jordan Pickford, who won the Golden Glove after claiming five sheets, will wear a green kit, while Gianluigi Donnarumma will be dressed in yellow.
Pickford wore the last green kit against the Czech Republic in the group stage, while Donnarumma wore yellow against Switzerland and in the semifinals against Spain, when he saved Alvaro Morata to effectively win Mancini’s men.
Italy also agreed to get on its knees before the start, along with England, to highlight discrimination and the fight against racism.
