Star player Harry Kane put away the rebound after Kasper Schmeichel saved his extra-time penalty to help England book their berth in the Euro 2020 final after registering a 2-1 win over Denmark on Thursday. With this win, England qualified for the first major tournament final since 1966 and will now face Italy in the summit clash at Wembley Stadium on July 12 (Indian time). Earlier, Italy defeated in the first semifinal to continue their winning run in international.

How Mancini and Vialli mastermind Italy's success

Dubbed the goal twins during their playing days, Roberto Mancini and Gianluca Vialli are still teaming up to win matches.

This time as coaches of Italy's national team.

When the Italians beat in the European Championship semifinals, there was Mancini sharing joyous hugs with Vialli on the field at Wembley Stadium.

"Gianluca and I have known each other for a very long time so it's only natural that our relationship is different", said Mancini, now the head coach of the national team.

The pair have also gone through some high points and low points on the very same field in London.

They were teammates at Sampdoria when they lost to Barcelona in the 1992 European Cup final at the old Wembley. It was last match the duo played together after eight years at the Italian club, which they led to its only league title, four Italian Cups and a Cup Winners' Cup.

Wembley successes followed, for both. Vialli won the FA Cup at the iconic venue as Chelsea manager in 2000, and Mancini did the same with Manchester City in 2011.

The pair was reunited in 2019 when Mancini appointed Vialli as delegation chief of the Italy team shortly before Vialli publicly announced that he had recovered from a second battle against pancreatic cancer.
