The probable formations of Italy-England

On the first day valid for qualification for the upcoming European Championships, Italy and England will face each other in a remake of the Euro 2020 final. Both teams arrive at the match affected by a few too many injuries and several new faces. Kickoff on Thursday, March 23 at 8:45 p.m. at the Diego Armando Maradona.

Mancini, in attack, should line up Retegui from 1′ with Berardi and Pellegrini completing the trident. In midfield, confirmation for the trio composed of Jorginho, Verratti and Barella. Ballot in defense between Toloi and Romagnoli to flank Acerbi.

Southgate will have to do without the injured Rashford. Forward, therefore, space for the trident composed of Kane, Saka and Foden. In front of Pickford will be Walker, Maguire, Stones and Shaw.

Likely lineups.

ITALY (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Di Lorenzo, Acerbi, Toloi, Spinazzola; Barella, Jorginho, Verratti; Berardi, Retegui, Pellegrini. Ct. Mancini

ENGLAND (4-3-3): Pickford; Walker, Maguire, Stones, Shaw; Rice, Bellingham, Henderson; Saka, Kane, Foden. Ct. Southgate
