The Azzurri will face their Euros’ final opponent in Italy vs England. It has been a roller-coaster ride for Italy in international competitions. They managed to win the Euros 2020, but will not take part in the FIFA World Cup this year. So it makes Nations League an important trophy for them. While the Three Lions are not going to get out of the group stage as they sit in the last position with 2 points. Italy still have a chance as they are two points behind Hungary at the top.
Mancini has made some changes in the team and he is looking forward to the future. The Azzurri have a young and talented side but will use their best lineup for this encounter. The Azzurri completely lost the plot after the Euros as they have won only four games in the last 14 matches. They had a good start in the Nations League but got a reality check against Germany in their last match. The young talented squad was ripped apart by the mighty Germans in a 5-2 defeat. Italy are facing a similar problem to Inter Milan as they have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six games at home.
