Have Italy ever won Euro?

Yes, they have. The Italians have won it once, but that was over 50 years ago. It came in the 1968 final, with Italy hosting, and they beat the former Yugoslavia across what was then a two-legged final.

Have England ever won Euro?

The Three Lions have actually never appeared in a final, let alone ever won one. They are the only European team to have won a World Cup but not a Euro and will try to change that on Sunday. The appearance is England’s first in a major international cup final since the 1966 World Cup.
