England’s journey to Euro 2024 could reach a triumphant conclusion as they face Italy at Wembley tonight. Their path to the tournament in Germany seemed all but certain after their resilient 2-1 victory over Italy in March, marking the end of a 62-year wait for a win on Italian soil.

Since that historic win, Gareth Southgate’s squad has had its share of challenges, as evidenced by their narrow victory over Australia in a recent friendly, which was somewhat overshadowed by criticism directed at Jordan Henderson. However, the return of key players like Harry Kane and Jude Bellingham promises a well-rested squad for the showdown at Wembley.

Italy, on the other hand, recently put four goals past Malta and knows that any dropped points in this crucial fixture could jeopardize their chances of qualifying for the Euros.

The England vs. Italy clash is scheduled for a 7.45pm BST kick-off today, on Tuesday, October 17, 2023, and will take place at Wembley.

England vs. Italy Team News:

England’s squad has no fresh injury concerns, as most of their starters were rested in the previous match. While Bukayo Saka, Luke Shaw, and Ben Chilwell are already ruled out, Southgate faces decisions regarding Jordan Henderson, Kalvin Phillips, and Trent Alexander-Arnold’s roles in the squad. Phil Foden is expected to play on the right flank, while Marcus Rashford and James Maddison vie for the left-wing position.

Italy faced a setback as Newcastle midfielder Sandro Tonali and Aston Villa loanee Nicolo Zaniolo were sent home due to a betting scandal, leaving a void in their squad. Luciano Spalletti has employed a 4-3-3 formation, with Domenico Berardi leading the attack from the right flank.
