Italy!! vs England


The issues facing the England team, which was eliminated from the Nations League

tournament as a result of this defeat, were clear, despite Gareth Southgate’s best efforts to

address them since the summer of last year.

Mancini frequently used the 3-5-2 formation; Rafael Toloi, Leonardo Bonucci, and Francesco

Acerbi made up the back line, while Giovanni Di Lorenzo and Federico Dimarco stood at

either end of the field. Jorginho served as the center forward, positioned behind midfielders

Nicola Parilla and Brian Cristante, who moved in front of Rasbadori and Gianluca Scamacca.

In order to isolate England’s leading scorer Harry Kane, the team chose to play with three

defenders at the back for the majority of the first half. This was done to stop the English

from launching assaults through both flanks.
