England vs Italy: match preview

Plenty has changed for both England and Italy since the latter upset the former in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley. Today, the Three Lions and Azzurri are back at the home of football for a fascinating Euro 2024 qualifier that will go a long way to deciding the two available spots in Group C for next summer's finals in Germany. Today could be a classic.

England knows a win all-but secures qualification for the German jamboree, following five wins – including a first in Italy since 1961 – and a draw from its opening six qualifiers. Since a 1-0 defeat to Italy in the UEFA Nations League in September 2022, the Three Lions have lost just once in 13 outings, the heartbreaking 2-1 World Cup quarter-final defeat to France, and Gareth Southgate's men posted another victory in a Saturday friendly against Australia. Fit-again John Stones is expected to start his first game for club or country since August's Community Shield, while Harry Kane, Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice are all expected return.

Absent from a second successive World Cup just under a year ago, Italy is beginning to stir again. Since Luciano Spalletti replaced Roberto Mancini in August, the Azzurri has taken seven points from a possible nine in Euro 2024 qualifying, but it's the passion and attacking verve that Napoli's Serie A-winning coach has instilled in his side that impress most. Giacomo Raspadori now leads the line just as he did for the Little Donkeys, with Manuel Locatelli restored to central midfield and Gianluigi Donnarumma the new captain in goal. Another Wembley win and Italy draws level on points with England with two qualifiers remaining.
