Before that, England thumped Ukraine in the quarter-finals in Rome, recorded a first knockout match win over Germany since the 1966 World Cup final in the round of 16, and picked up wins over 2018 World Cup runners-up Croatia and the Czech Republic in the group stage.

Going into Sunday's showpiece final, the two new Reds defenders have both predicted that England will be the ones celebrating come full-time.

Ransom said: "The Euros have been good haven't they!?

"England have got a good chance but it is Italy, so there is that little bit where you’re still nervous.

"But I do think England will win."

Gallacher added: "The Euros have been really good. There’s been a lot of good quality.

"I’m looking forward to the final but I think England will take it.

"They’ll have 60,000 England fans there so it’ll be an extra man for them, so I think they’ll win it."
