Italy arrived in Kiev on Saturday ahead of the Euro 2012 final against Spain.

Mario Balotelli will be hoping to continue his fine form after scoring the two goals that knocked the Germans out in the semi-finals on Thursday.

Cesare Prandelli's side are the slight underdog's heading into Sunday's tournament decider but the head coach should take confidence from the Italian's impressive display in the 1-1 draw between the two nations in the Group stages.
