Online touts are selling tickets to watch England against Italy in the final of Euro 2020 at Wembley for as much as £15,000 each.

The England team will return to the national stadium on Sunday in a bid to win their first major trophy since 1966 after beating Denmark 2-1 i the semi-final on Wednesday.

The highly-sought after tickets were initially available through the UEFA ticket portal costing between £81 and £808, but they have now all sold out.

Now touts are looking to make as much as 1,800 per cent profit.

One set of four category one tickets sat together was being sold on eBay for a starting bid of £60,000.

Not since that famous extra-time success over West Germany in 1966 have the Three Lions even reached another showpiece, with painful near-misses at the World Cups of 1990 and 2018 as well as familiar penalty heartache at Euro 96.

But Gareth Southgate has now led England into an exciting new era with a young squad bursting with talent and depth and largely free of the burdens and heavy expectations of the past, with captain Harry Kane’s extra-time goal - the rebound from his own saved penalty - defeating Denmark in the semis after Simon Kjaer’s own goal had cancelled out Mikkel Damsgaard’s stunning free-kick.

UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against England after a laser pen appeared to be pointed at Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel before Harry Kane’s decisive penalty in Wednesday’s Euro 2020 semi-final.

Television pictures showed an unmistakable green light on Schmeichel’s face before he parried Kane’s extra-time spot-kick, with the England captain scoring the rebound to seal a 2-1 win.
