It will be a Mason Mount vs Jorginho something later today in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley Stadium. The two Chelsea midfielders will be directly opposite one another as England take on Italy in the highly-anticipated Euro 2020 final.
With the exciting matchup ahead, one Chelsea fan broke down how it might actually be the only way England can neutralize Jorginho.
Here is an analysis from a Reddit user u/H4rry29: “Mason Mount will be key towards nullifying Jorginho in the final.
“His role in this tournament is highly understated and selfless which makes him an asset to any team competing in tournament football. England need to neutralise Jorginho – look no further than Mount.
“Drawing on the Denmark game, Mount smothered Højbjerg who has been their most creative player, leading the Danes in assists (3), key passes (9) and shot-creating actions (22).
“I would expect a similar battle between Mount and Jorginho tomorrow – the outcome could be crucial.
“Jorginho has a less creative role for Italy compared to Højbjerg for Denmark yet is so instrumental in dictating play; he has the most touches for Italy so far (476).”
“Spain proved that you can stop Italy from playing their game if you can negate the number of touches and time on the ball that Jorginho has.
“A battle against such a technical midfield from Italy will be really interesting to watch, especially if you’re a neutral. Unfortunately I am English so I won’t be able to enjoy that how I would like to.”
Meanwhile, Mason Mount’s pressing ability is second to none, much like Jorginho’s passing ability, and seeing who gets the better of the other is a prospect that is sure to make football and in particular Blues fans salivate.
