Match Preview: Italy vs England , Nations League Clash- Teams, line ups and more.

Italy hosts England , it has been 14 months since they met on the biggest European stage. A new chapter is to be written as they lock horns again on Friday night at the San Siro.

There’s been quite a history between the two when Italy last time won on penalties in the Euro 2021 finals. Both the teams are not in form at the moment as they struggle to get their way in games. Italy missed out on the World Cup and England have their winless streak continued.

Italy

Mancini’s side failed to qualify for the world cup for two years in a row and the confidence levels are low. They currently stand 3rd in the nations league group might end their journey sooner than expected. To make it worse they are suffering with injury blows to their internationals which came in September , the experienced trio of Pellegrini, Politano and Verrati .

This is a must win match for the Italian side or they wont be able to book their place ahead. They have also gone 6 games without a clean sheet at home which defines their poor defensive record recently, Italy’s poor form since European glory has been abysmal for them as they have failed to win 10 matches out of 14.

England

Southgate’s side has got cracks to fill, England has gone winless in the nations league and have suffered a hammering 4-0 loss to Hungary on their way. The three lions are unlikely to go all the way through or even qualify ahead as they stand last currently in their group.   

English fans wants that the manager should leave immediately as the three lions are not performing upto the mark. The English coach is mainly blamed for his team and squad selection for the England international matches, Southgate has refused to select players like Jadon Sancho, Ben white. The coach has selected 15 players for the back 5. The confidence of this English side looks at an all time low
