Both teams have struggled since Italy’s shootout success to win Euro 2020 last summer at England’s expense, with the former missing out on World Cup qualification and the latter on a run of four games without a win. Both are desperate for the points.

It’s almost impossible to believe that Italy have failed to qualify for the past two World Cups, especially after the Azzurri became European champions last summer. Yet a goalless draw in Northern Ireland, followed by a catastrophic play-off defeat to North Macedonia, ended their hopes of making it to Qatar and they must now focus on overhauling Hungary who surprisingly lead Group A3. Coach Roberto Mancini is attempting a mini-overhaul with Napoli’s Giacomo Raspadori and Leeds newbie Wilfried Gnonto among the young talents that the former Manchester City boss is trying to bring through.
England, meanwhile, are desperate to end a run of four games without a win which came at the end of last season. Draws with Germany and the reverse fixture against Italy were sandwiched between debilitating defeats to Hungary, the 4-0 reverse at Monineux proving particularly harrowing.
With the World Cup just around the corner, and relegation to Nations League Group B a realistic probability, Gareth Southgate will be going all out for a win against the team they lost to in the Euro 2020 final and restore some confidence pre-Qatar. Expect big guns Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Mason Mount to start. This has the makings of a brilliant game, so follow our guide to get an Italy vs England live stream and watch the 2022 Nations League online from anywhere.
