Italy Vs. England Match Preview and Statistics
Italy National Football Team
Italy sent shock waves after failing to reach the World Cup 2022. Hence, there will be no Italy vs England World Cup predictions – from the best FIFA World Cup 2022 betting sites – to focus upon. This leaves Roberto Mancini’s team with a huge void, and they have to focus only on the Nations League finals going forward. The Italian outfit has been extremely inconsistent over the last year. There have been just two narrow wins – over Hungary and Turkey – in the last nine games for the Euro 2020 champions.
England National Football Team
England is hoping to maintain their League A UEFA qualification status in the Nations League. Crucially, Gareth Southgate’s men also have to find a winning combination for the World Cup 2022. The upcoming game acts as great preparation for the tournament with England struggling for wins of late, even if the free bets and specials still hold Southgate’s team in good regard ahead of the World Cup.
