Team news

Italy: The European champions will face England without key player Federico Chiesa, who is currently injured. The team coached by Roberto Mancini is expected to play with West Ham striker Gianluca Scamacca as a number nine alongside Napoli's winger Matteo Politano. Seventeen years-old Simone Pafundi was called by the coach and might make his debut after Mancini said in the press conference that he's the first name that he has put on the squad list, before everyone else. 

England: Gareth Southgate's team play their first match against Italy, after they lost at their home stadium the 2020 Euro final on penalties. England are expected to start with Harry Kane alongside Bukayo Saka and Phil Foden in what is one of the best attacking lines around Europe. They're without Marcus Rashford and Mason Mount who withdrew from the squad.


England are the leading candidates to win the group and should make it despite they're playing away in Naples against the team that won the last edition of the competition. Pick: England 2, Italy 0.
