UEFA Nations League 2022/23 – England vs Italy, match preview, predicted lineups

Eng vs Ita
Match no. 71 of Nations League 2022/23 between England and Italy takes place today

England will take on Italy at home in UEFA Nations League 20222/23 as the competition moves ahead. Both teams will be looking for a win here.

Kick-off : 7:45 PM (Local)

Venue : Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton

England have not had an ideal start to their Nations League campaign but will surely look to turnaround things. First they suffered a loss in Hungary then obviously drew in Germany & now they play Italy at home.

The Three Lions are currently in the bottom of their Group with 1 point in 2 games. They will have to play Hungary again lastly this month.

Boss Gareth Southgate might use a 4-2-3-1 formation against Italy as they will need to defend well and look to score to get the 3 points.

On the other hand, Italy are back on track in their UEFA Nations League campaign after getting points of their two games played. First they drew against Germany and then won against Hungary. England away should be difficult.

The Gli Azzurri are at the top of their group with 4 points from 2 games. Italy next play Germany to finish of fixtures in June.

Their manager Roberto Mancini will likely use a 4-3-3 formation to be secure in the defence and options up front.

Team news and possible lineups

Kalvin Phillips is injured and won’t be available for England for the weekend fixture. While Phil Foden, James Justin & Fikayo Tomori are all doubts.
