England – Italy
Nearly one year after the Euro 2020 final, England and Italy face each other on the pitch. These two teams will go head to head in the Nations League on Saturday. Let’s preview it in our best soccer bets today.
England really need to step up their game if they want to reach the final stagers of the tournament. The Three Lions won just one point in their first two matches and that’s not good – they are 4th in the group. The good news is that Italy are just three points ahead on the top so hopes are still alive.
On Tuesday England faced Germany again in one of the biggest football classics in Europe. They faced each other in Munich and the game ended with a 1-1 draw at the Allianz Arena. It was surprisingly Jonas Hofmann who opened the score for the Mannschaft, but then Harry Kane equalised for the Three Lions. It was Kane’s 50th goal for the national side.
Italy are leading the group with 4 points won in the first two matches. For the Azzurri it’s essential to do something significant in the Nations League after failing to qualify for the World Cup. Winning the competition would be a good way for the team to redeem itself.
On Tuesday Italy celebrated their first win in the Nations League for the 2022/23 season. Roberto Mancini’s team hosted Hungary in Cesena and fought for a 2-1 win. Nicolo Barella and Lorenzo Pellegrini scored for the Azzurri in the first half.
The new star of the Italian national team Wilfried Gnonto made his first start for the Azzurri. The 18-years old winger played the whole 90 minutes against Hungary.
