Aplace at Euro 2024 can be sealed tonight for England when they host Italy at Wembley.

In reality, the Three Lions’ spot at next summer’s tournament in Germany has been as good as sealed since their steely 2-1 win away to the Azzurri in March, which ended England’s 62-year wait to beat them on Italian soil.

Gareth Southgate’s side have not enjoyed completely plain sailing since, as exemplified by a rotated line-up squeezing past Australia on Friday night in a friendly slightly overshadowed by boos for Jordan Henderson.

The returning cast of Harry Kane, Jude Bellingham and Co will at least be well rested for this Wembley showdown as a result, with a draw enough to bag a ticket to the Euros.

Italy put four goals past Malta last week and know that any dropped points will leave them right up against it in their quest to qualify.

There are no fresh injury issues for England with the bulk of their starters rested on Friday night. Bukayo Saka, Luke Shaw and Ben Chilwell were among those already ruled out ahead of the international period.

Southgate has a couple of questions to contend with, however. Jordan Henderson could remain in the midfield three alongside Declan Rice and Bellingham but Kalvin Phillips or Trent Alexander-Arnold could get the nod instead, the Liverpool man having played at both right-back and central midfield during the Australia friendly.

Saka’s absence also opens up arguably two spots in the attack. Phil Foden is likely to play down the right flank with Marcus Rashford and James Maddison competing for the left-wing berth.

Italy sent Newcastle midfielder Sandro Tonali and Aston Villa loanee Nicolo Zaniolo from their camp last week over a betting scandal, with the trio absent again here.

Luciano Spalletti has deployed a 4-3-3 since taking over from Roberto Mancini with Domenico Berardi his chief attacking threat from the right flank.

England vs Italy prediction

A few days off will have done the likes of Kane and Bellingham the world of good and, after a couple of iffy displays of late, this is a prime opportunity for England to mark themselves out as genuine contenders next summer.

England vs Italy score prediction

Spalletti – a Serie A winner with Napoli last summer – only took over his national team last month. After a stuttering 1-1 draw against Italy’s bogey team North Macedonia on his debut, Spalletti has overseen consecutive victories against Ukraine and Malta.

However, both of those wins occurred on Italian soil. The Azzurri may have lifted the European Championships when they last faced England at Wembley but they have largely struggled on their travels in recent years; Italy have won just three of their last nine competitive matches away from home.

England, by comparison, have won six of their seven matches since bowing out against France in the World Cup quarter-finals – a tournament which Italy couldn’t qualify for. If they lose to England again, as happened in Naples last March, Italy will be at risk of missing another major tournament.
