Two neighborhood countries, Italy and Austria, clash in the EURO 2020 Round of 16 at Wembley. Even though they share the border, we haven’t seen these two teams meet for a long time. Italy comes into this event as a huge favorite, and how wouldn’t they be following superb performances during the group stage. On the other side, Austria didn’t want to settle with one point against Ukraine but instead won all three, securing the second spot in Group C. The entire football community expected to see the Austrians and Ukraine sharing one point each, but Franco Fonda‘s crew wanted to play clean and honorable.

When is it?

Italy vs Austria is on Saturday 26 June, in London.

What time is kick-off?

The game gets under way at 8pm BST.

What TV channel is it on?

The television schedules are yet to be finalised but there will be live coverage on BBC One or ITV1.

How to live stream Italy vs Austria from outside your country

We've detailed how you can watch Euro 2020 from the UK, US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand down below, but bear in mind that if you're abroad at any point during the tournament, you won't be able to live stream the football via your usual domestic broadcaster.

This is because of geo-blocking, which restricts certain services and content to specific parts of the world. However, you can get around geo-blocks by using a VPN, or Virtual Private Network. It's completely legal, very affordable and easy to use - and it also encrypts your browsing, offering protection against cybercriminals and government snooping.

ExpressVPN is the world's top VPN right now

We've thoroughly tested all of the major VPNs, and our No. 1 pick is ExpressVPN. It's fast, easy to use, and packs a great range of security features. You can also use it across a huge range of devices, including Android and Apple smartphones, the Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox and PlayStation. If you want to stay safe online and watch your preferred broadcast from anywhere, you won't find anything better than ExpressVPN.

Better still, you can get an extra 3 months FREE if you sign up for an annual plan. And there's nothing to lose, because if you change your mind within the first 30 days, let them know and they'll give you your money back.
