Defenders: Francesco Acerbi, Alessandro Bastoni, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, Emerson Palmieri, Alessandro Florenzi, Leonardo Spinazzola, Rafael Toloi
Midfielders: Nicolo Barella, Bryan Cristante, Jorginho, Manuel Locatelli, Lorenzo Pellegrini, Stefano Sensi, Marco Verratti

Midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini remains injured but Roberto Mancini has plenty of options. Jorginho, Marco Verratti and Nicolo Barella the preferred three.

Experienced campaigners Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci are a formidable central defensive duo.

Full back Alessandro Florenzi is doubtful and left back Leonardo Spinazzola is injured. Emerson should stay ahead of Rafael Toloi at left back.

Federico Chiesa picked up a knock but will hope to keep his spot. Domenico Berardi, Andrea Belotti and Federico Bernardeschi are other attacking options.

England Form


England are undefeated in their last 12 matches. They have won 10 of those and kept 10 clean sheets.

Gareth Southgate’s side started Euro 2020 with a 1-0 win against Croatia, Raheem Sterling on target. They were poor in a 0-0 draw against Scotland before Sterling scored in a 1-0 win against Czech Republic.

The Three Lions beat Germany 2-0 in the Round of 16. Sterling opened the scoring once again with Harry Kane on target. They beat Ukraine 4-0 with Kane scoring twice and goals to Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson.

England got past Denmark in the semi-finals, winning 2-1 in extra time. They fell behind but Bukayo Saka and Sterling instigated an own goal before Sterling won a penalty in extra time, Kane seeing his spot kick saved before burying the rebound.

England boss Gareth Southgate should stick to the back four system employed against Ukraine and Denmark.

Bukayo Saka, Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho and Phil Foden compete for a spot on the wing.

Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane are indispensable to Southgate.
