England vs Italy: Prediction, Nations League kick off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results today

England face Italy at Molineux tonight looking to end their winless start to the new Nations League campaign.

The match will take place behind closed doors after the crowd trouble surrounding their meeting for the Euro 2020 final at Wembley last summer - which Three Lions fans will not need reminding ended with the Azzurri winning on penalties.

Gareth Southgate’s side have struggled in this month’s internationals and a late draw in Germany rescued a first point of the group stage, following defeat in Hungary.

Italy top the group after downing Hungary in midweek yet are without several senior stars for this trip, as Roberto Mancini looks to the future having failed to qualify for the World Cup.

England vs Italy prediction

The Three Lions did improve in Germany and will be desperate to earn something of a revenge victory over Italy.

They have shown plenty of defensive fragility recently, although whether this inexperienced Azzurri side can take advantage of that is another matter.

A 2-0 England win.
