England are favourites to win Sunday’s final at 8/11, with rivals Italy priced at 1/1.

Hartlepool’s psychic lamb Oatesy, who correctly predicted a win for Hartlepool in their play-off final three weeks ago when they went on to beat Torquay on penalties, has also made her prediction for the result.

But what do football fans in our town think? Will we see a repeat of the tense semi-final against Denmark? Or is it going to be a breeze?

We asked for your predictions of the score.

Craig Anthony has made a cautious prediction for a win. He said: “I would hope 2-0 to England but I can see Italy spoiling the party.”

Amanda Spark-Evans however feels more confident of an England victory: “2-1 England because it’s coming home.”

Harley Joe Rapper anticipates Southgate’s side will bring the trophy home – but after penalties: “1-1 England win 7-6 on pens.”

Joanne Belts is also expecting a win following extra time and penalties. She said: “1-1, extra time, penalties 5-4 England.”
