England have a point to prove as they meet Italy in Milan tonight in their penultimate game before traveling to Qatar for the World Cup.

Gareth Southgate’s side are playing their first games since four games without a win in June, losing twice to Hungary and drawing with Italy and Germany.

The results mean England will be relegated from their Nations League group if they lose to Italy tonight, as they are three points behind the Azzurri with just the game against Germany at Wembley on Monday.

England open their World Cup campaign against Iran on November 21 and after a series of poor performances in June, Southgate will look to restore the feel-good factor ahead of the tournament.

Here’s everything you need to know.

When is Italy vs England?

The match kicks off at 7.45pm BST on Friday, September 25 at the San Siro in Milan.

How can I watch it?

It will be shown live on Channel 4, with coverage starting at 7 p.m. It will also be available for live streaming on All 4.

What’s the news from the England squad?

Kalvin Phillips’ injury and Jordan Henderson’s fitness doubts have opened the door for Jude Bellingham to link up with Declan Rice in midfield.

Aaron Ramsdale is set to replace the injured Jordan Pickford in goal and Eric Dier looks set to start in defence, with options Reece James and Ben Chilwell at the back.

Fikayo Tomori could start ahead of Harry Maguire, but Kieran Trippier could also come in if Southgate opts for a back five.

Harry Maguire and Raheem Sterling are expected to start, meaning Ivan Toney may have to wait to make his bench debut.

Phil Foden, Mason Mount, Bukayo Saka, Jarrod Bowen and Jack Grealish will compete for the last starting spot.

Planned compositions

Italy: Donnarumma; Di Lorenzo, Bastoni, Bonucci, Emerson; Jorginho, Barella, Tonali; Raspadori, Scamacca, Gnonto

England: Ramsdale; James, Walker, Dier, Maguire, Saka; Rice, Bellingham; Sterling, Kane, Foden


Italy: 2/1

Draw: 9/4

England: 18/11


England are behind on a performance, but it is forgotten that their run of four games without a win in June came at the end of a long season. Southgate’s squad should be refreshed and look much stronger than their Italian counterparts on paper. England win with goals from Kane and Sterling. Italy 1-2 England
