Live Match England VS Italy March 27 2018 Kick Off 18:00 GMT
With the World’s number one most celebrated Trophy tournament a few months away from kickoff, countries are hardly preparing with friendlies. We bring you yet another battle of the European giants, with England Welcoming Italy.
However, interim coach Luigi Di Biagio said last month he wanted the 40-year-old to reconsider his decision and return for Italy’s first matches since they failed to reach the tournament in Russia.
Italy are still without a permanent manager following Gian Piero Ventura’s sacking for failing to reach the World Cup, with Di Biagio in charge until a replacement is found.
Ryan Bertrand has withdrawn from the England squad for friendlies against the Netherlands and Italy due to a back problem, the FA has announced.
Bertrand helped Southampton to a 2-0 FA Cup quarter-final victory against Wigan on Sunday and has now returned to the club as a precautionary measure.
Manchester United defender Luke Shaw is among the options to replace Bertrand if Gareth Southgate decides to call up an additional player.
