Italy and England go head-to-head after a 0-0 draw last June and more importantly Italy won the trophy at Wembley after the UEFA Euro 2020 final in the summer of 2021. Despite that incredible record, Roberto Mancini’s side failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and now begin a new cycle under the same manager. Italy currently has five points in the UEFA Nations League group, while Hungary has seven and Germany has six. England are currently at the bottom of the group with 2 points from 4 matches. With two games remaining, only the winner of the group stage will take part in the final four next June 2023.

Here’s what you need to know:

Group message

Italy: Roberto Mancini is trying to start a new cycle after failing to qualify for the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Apart from the Nations League, the coach has to find a new environment around the team. All the enthusiasm that drove this team to win Euros in 2021 is gone after a year. Ciro Immobile is back in the squad, while Marco Verratti and Lorenzo Pellegrini will miss the matches due to injuries.

England: Gareth Southgate’s side have not started well in the UEFA Nations League group and have just two points after four games, thanks to draws against Italy and Germany, while they lost both matches against Hungary (4-0 and 1-0). Southgate’s main concern now is the lack of goals and defence. England conceded 6 goals and scored just one goal in four matches.

Prediction

Despite being the first match of this edition of the UEFA Nations League, England need to win this game and they need to secure points for the group stage to avoid relegation in League B. Italy, on the other hand, must win this game. Well done. Selection: Italy 2, England 2.

Selection: England 2, Italy 1
