The first four rounds of the UEFA Nations League brought a big surprise – Hungary leads a powerhouse group which includes Germany, Italy and England. Yes, the Magyars had glorious times in the past and have made the World Cup final more often than England. But the last time they reached those heights was in 1954! And England, the Euro 2020 finalists, are loaded with Premier League players.
But it turned out the way it did – and now the British will strive to save themselves from relegation to League B. First, they will need to defeat the Italians on the road to the next round, with revenge for the Euro 2020 final a mere bonus. But the Italians also have their motivation. Firstly, to fight for the semi-finals – two wins in the remaining matches may suffice. And secondly, after another World Cup failure, falling short here could be fatal for Roberto Mancini.
The coach understood this and abandoned the spring experiments with the squad. Most Euro championship heroes are now in the ranks – Donnarumma, Bonucci, Verratti, Jorginho and Immobile. This team still won’t have Chiesa, but even without him, they can succeed. Mancini’s faith in a team stacked with players from log leaders Napoli could be well founded.
Italy – England match
The English will be missing Pickford. All other starters of the Euro final are in place though. Yes, Maguire is not in the best form, but he always rises to the occasion in the national team. Kane, Sterling, and Grealish are all in good condition and ready to play. And, of course, the young Bellingham – the Borussia midfielder who lit up the Bundesliga at the start of the season and is already touted to return to his homeland in the winter.
