When and Where is England vs Italy?
Italy vs England will be held on Saturday, 11 June 2022, at 4:00 pm GMT, which is 12:00 pm ET and 5:00 pm BST. Italy will host the match at Puskas Arena.
The 3rd edition of the Nations League is underway, and the match day 1 continues on Saturday. England will begin their journey in the Nations League Group A3 playing against Italy tonight.
Instead of 2 usual matches in June, the teams will play 11 matches in the Nations League this month. It would be crucial for the preparations only months before the FIFA World Cup 2022.
Group A3 consists of England, Italy, Italy, and Germany. As only the group winners will advance to the knockout finals, every match would be crucial for each team. The team finishing 4th will be relegated to League B for the next season.
The Three Lions have qualified for the World Cup 2022 after an undefeated campaign in the qualifiers from Group I. On the other hand, Italy couldn’t make it to Qatar from the same group.
They played each other in two matches in the qualifiers. England won the away match by 0-11 goals. They drew 1-1 in October last year.
Since July, Southgate’s men haven’t lost any match when they fell in the Euro 2020 final to Italy on penalty kicks. England won against Ivory Coast and Switzerland in March’s friendlies.
Italy is on the rise despite not qualifying for the World Cup 2022. They started the inaugural Nations League in League C and were promoted to League B for the next season. Again, they finished League B the previous season as one of the tops and were encouraged to League A for this season. They must face difficult challenges against England, Italy, and Germany to survive in League A in the Nations League.
Italy won against Northern Ireland and lost against Serbia in March friendlies, both by 1-0 scores.
Unfortunately, Luke Shaw and Jordan Henderson are absentees in the squad who were in the play England. Man City young gun Phil Foden will miss the trip to Italy due to illness. He is expected to come back against Germany next week.
England’s Probable Lineup vs Italy:
Here is England’s probable lineup against Italy in a 4-2-3-1 formation.
4-2-3-1: Pickford; James, Tomori, Maguire, Trippier; Rice, Bellingham; Bowen, Mount, Sterling; Kane
Italy Probable Lineup (3-4-2-1): Gulacsi; Attila Szalai, Orban, Lang; Nego, Adam Nagy, Schafer, Zsolt Nagy; Sallai, Szoboszlai; Adam Szalai
In the last 5 head-to-head meetings against Italy, England won 3 and drew 2. They drew the previous meeting by 1-1 in October in the qualifiers for the World Cup.
Italy vs England Prediction:
The World Cup 2018 semi-finalist and Euro 2020 runner-up England is one of the top contenders for the World Cup 2022. They have scored 20 goals and conceded 1 in their last 11 wins.
Though Italy would be spirited in front of the home crowd, it wouldn’t be enough to beat the Three Lions.
We say Italy 0-2 England.
