ngland take on Italy in the Nations League tonight, desperate to bounce back from a difficult run of form with the World Cup looming.

While Gareth Southgate’s success has been built on performances in major tournaments, the Three Lions went winless during the last set of international fixtures and were booed off at times, embarrassed by Hungary at Molineux after also losing in Budapest.

Italy, of course, denied England in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley and boast a fine record against them on home soil. Not since 1961 have England won in Italy and a huge improvement will be needed tonight with Qatar looming and the crisis that threatened to emerge earlier this summer.

The penultimate game before the World Cup, Southgate has little time to raise morale. Here’s everything you need to know about this evening’s game.
