Fifty games down. Just one to go. Euro 2020 has come down to England — playing its first major final since winning the 1966 World Cup — taking on perennial powerhouse Italy. What's more, however, is that England effectively hosts the Italian squad, with the championship match taking place at the historic Wembley Stadium.

It really has been a tournament for the ages. Delayed a year by the global pandemic. The near-tragedy for the Danish team, who quite literally saw their star player drop dead in their opening match, then the storybook rise before finally falling to the Three Lions 2-1 in extra time in a semifinal. 

Italy, meanwhile, was Italy. It just plowed through. It took penalties to decide the team's fate over Spain in the other semifinal, but a win is a win.

And that brings us to one final match.

Here's what you need to know about how to watch England vs. Italy.

How to watch England vs. Italy in the Euro 2020 final in the United States

If you're in the United States and are planning on watching the Euro 2020 final, it's a pretty easy affair. The match is scheduled to be shown on ESPN, which is available on pretty much every cable provider, and on all major streaming services.

Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. July 11, 2021.

Like the semifinal matches, you'll also be able to stream the entire England-Italy game on ESPN+. That nearly makes up for the match not being available over the air on the ABC network which, like ESPN, is owned by Disney. The good news there is that it's super easy to watch ESPN+ on your TV.

ESPN+ runs $6.99 a month, or $69.99 a year if you want to save a little money. But if you're really serious about your sports and entertainment, you absolutely must check out the Disney + Bundle. That'll package together ESPN+, the basic Hulu service, and Disney+ — all for $13.99 a month.

You can go one better though. You can add Hulu With Live TV to the bundle for a total of $72 a month — which is just $7 a month more than if you were to get Hulu With Live TV on its own.

If you'd rather just watch on ESPN proper, no worries. ESPN is carried on every major streaming service in the United States. So you can get it with YouTube TV, or the aforementioned Hulu With Live TV. 

But another service you definitely should check out is FuboTV. In addition to carrying ESPN, FuboTV also has a strong list of optional add-ons that'll bolster your sports experience. In fact, most of what it offers in addition to a very strong channel lineup are various sports leagues that you otherwise can't find in the United States.

That includes packages like Rai Italia, which gets you Serie A and Coppa Italia, as well as other Italian news and movies. Or there's the Fubo Cycling package, which includes Fox Soccer Plus, Zona Futbol, and GolTV, among other channels.

If you're not actually able to attend the match at Wembley, and you're not in your nearest pub, you'll be able to watch England vs. Italy on both BBC1 and ITV, and BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub. Which pretty much covers all the methods.

The final match at Wembley in north London is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. local time.
