Italy welcomes England this Friday at San Siro, at 8:45 p.m., on the occasion of the 5th day of group 3 of the League of Nations. TV channel, probable compositions… Here is the information to know about the meeting.
The Italy-England context
Two months before the World Cup, this meeting looks like a good test for England. For the men of Southgate, the objective will therefore be to make the final adjustments. Note that the Three Lions remain in four games without a single victory, including a very severe defeat against Hungary (0-4). Last of its group, the British selection no longer has the right to make mistakes.
Deprived of the World Cup, Italy will try for its part to console itself during this prestigious opposition. Squadra Azzura currently sits third in this group. During their last outing, Roberto Mancini’s protégés were largely defeated in Germany (5-2).
The probable compositions of Italy-England
To face England, Roberto Mancini will have to do without Marco Verratti, victim of a hematoma that occurred against Lyon. Frederico Chiesa, a major architect of the success of Euro 2021 will also be absent. Gianluigi Donnarumma should be there. He will find San Siro, a den where he had been whistled during his last appearance.
For his part, Gareth Southgate must do without Kalvin Phillips.

Donnarumma – Di Lorenzo, Bastoni, Bonucci, Emerson – Barella, Tonali, Jorginho – Gnonto, Immobile, Grifo.
