Italy-England: the official compositions

  • Italy





A little more than 3 months after being crushed by Germany, Italy finds the Nations League. The Squadra Azzurra cross swords against England for a match of the greatest importance (a meeting to follow live commented on Foot Mercato from 8:45 p.m.) especially for the Three Lions: they must win if they do not want be relegated to Group C.

Roberto Mancini had to deal with many absentees including Domenico Berardi, Manuel Locatelli, Marco Verratti, Lorenzo Pellegrini and recently Matteo Politano after his match against AC Milan. This therefore forced the coach to switch to 3-5-2 instead of his usual 4-3-3. We find in particular the former pair of Sassuolo Raspadori-Scamacca in attack. As for Gareth Southgate, he drew a 4-2-3-1 with Maguire present in central defense, which the former midfielder had announced at the start of the day. The best English international of the 2022 season Bukayo Saka is also present, as is Harry Kane.

The official compositions:

Italy : Donnarumma – Toloi, Bonucci, Acerbi – Di Lorenzo, Barella, Jorginho, Cristante, Dimarco – Raspadori, Scamacca

England: Pope – Walker, Maguire, Dier, James – Rice, Bellingham – Saka, Sterling, Foden – Kane
