The European Championship ends on Sunday, with England and Italy in the final.
Nigeria coach Gernt Rohr is backing England to win the Euro 2020 final against Italy at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
The German team believes that Gareth Southgate’s side is a complete team with a better strategy than the Italians.
England will play in the final of a major tournament for the first time since 1966, when they won the FIFA World Cup at home after beating West Germany 4-2.
The Three Lions beat Denmark 2-1 in Wembley on Wednesday after 120 minutes of Test football, while Italy beat Spain 4-2 on penalties after drawing 1-1 at the end of extra time. Later on Sunday he made his place for the showdown.
However, Rohr denounced England fans for promoting Denmark during his national anthem.
The 68-year-old said that when asked about the winning team on Sunday Nation Sport“Of course, England are a favorite at home. They are a complete team, beyond physical and tactical.
“The fans are a big supporter, but I regret their attitude towards the opponents, even the whistling of the national anthem.”
Although he is supporting the Southgate team, the former Bordeaux and Gabon coach said he expects a “good encounter” at Wembley out of respect for the style of play of both teams.
He added: “I think Italy can be a successful foreign player with fast counter-attacks.
Both teams can play with three or four in defense. Now many teams have 3-4 to 3 or 3-5-2 organization, evolution, defense and attacking together.
“So, a good final on Sunday. Every passionate team today will be able to defend and attack together, playing in different systems.
England have yet to win the UEFA European Championship in their footballing history and their best performance came in 1968 when they won the third place match.
Italy, on the other hand, only won the European Trophy once in 1968 when they beat Yugoslavia 2-0 in a rematch in Rome.
Portugal are the defending champions, while Germany and Spain are the most successful teams in tournament history with three titles each.
