26 min: The referee finally pulls out his notebook, and Locatelli can’t help but complain, looking back at the 1960s style of the Mountain.
25 min: A hard diagonal ball Di Lorenzo sees just to the right of the English box. He faces it for the first time and fits a low cross into a six-foot box. It completely reaches the Tonali, flowing in the inner-left canal. Tonali faces him, but his drive is blocked by Ramsdale, and England clear their lines. What a relief!
24 min: Trippier Pessina pulls in from behind the plane, and is a little lucky not to get into the book. Then Mountain does the same to Gatti. England will start testing patience if they are not careful.
22 min: Italy ping the ball in high-speed triangles. They really do not go anywhere but they look very nice. It’s a pity they won’t be in the World Cup.
20 min: Pellegrini threatens to compete on the left side in acres, but Maguire quickly comes to clear. Many thanks to the support of the very kind center.
18 min: Sterling swallows from the inside-right channel and wins England’s first corner. Ward-Prowse takes over, and Rice looks at the nearby post. Rice sends a whip with his foot not far from the right post. England is taking a chance.
16 min: Gotta say, Roberto Mancini gives good clothes.
… but then again, the Italian executives all the time give good clothes.
14 min: … so that said, the step goes straight down. Dreams do not always come true children.
12 minutes: This game is played at 101 miles per hour, and at basketball speed. More, please!
10 min: This is a great start for this game. Lorenzo finds his place on the right, meets Tomori with a broken clearance, and crosses a low, inviting pass into England’s six-yard box. No one in the blue is waiting for the beating of the house. In many places, it is already 2-2.
9 min: England shakes the cross bar! The mountain passes through a wide passage to the right of Sterling, which drops the canal before the diagonal return ball lands on the Mountain, just inside the box. The mountain opens its body and fires a shot at Donnarumma’s head and from the forest tree. The ball bounces off so fast that Ibrahim can’t get back in front of the goal.
7 min: Children do what they can to create some atmosphere in Molineux less populated. When Italy gets the top, many pantomime birds; much joy when England will win back.
5 min: Donnarumma, who plays very rudely from behind, is caught by Abraham on the edge of the box. Abraham steps into the area, but under Locatelli’s pressure, breaks wide wide. Both teams have already given themselves one.
4 min: Ibrahim is controlled by Gatti, 30 meters away from the Italian goal, in a central position. Ward-Prowse throws a free kick into the mixer, Maguire’s presence gets a little annoying, the ball hits the top of the Mountain, who fires a harmless shot into the Donnarumma half.
2 min: A great opportunity for Italy to take the lead quickly. Pellegrini passes through the inside-right channel to let Frattesi into the England box. He is one-on-one with Ramsdale, though somewhat facing a corner. He fires his shot at the defender and the width of the left arm post. Of course he had to hit the target at least. He had to score a goal.
Captains Gianluigi Donnarumma and Raheem Sterling change pens. Is there ever a bigger height difference between the captains? According to a popular internet search engine, among them is a large 10.2 inches. The knee is held – there is no place for racism – and England takes the ball.
The team left Molineux! England wear their famous white shirts; Italy sports its story azzurri. Although the game is technically played behind closed doors, there is not much atmosphere … but at least the Italian anthem is not respected by the general mixed media, and several thousand girls and boys are very excited about the fun. . the greatest evenings from his young life so far. We will be gone in a minute!
Gareth Southgate talks to Channel 4 about tonight’s election. “We’ve had a lot of talk about Jack Grealish’s role, but he has made 11 appearances for England this year, and has played in all of them. We know his value. We know when he will start to make an impact. has great, and when he enters the games he has a huge impact.So tonight we want to see all the features that everyone knows he brings.Fikayo Tomori is a player we want to look at.The fact that he knows the opposite is probably it’s a comfort to him that he is going through his first start, but he has had a really good season and is full of confidence with what came over his head.Tammy Abraham’s goal record this season in the whole team we know he is always on the right pitch and will finish.We are England, we have to keep winning football matches … but I also need to balance with some World Cup preparations.Sometimes I have to you ride on those long-term decisions.This is a test for us d is a big one. “
Tonight’s match is the first English men’s international match to be played here in Molineux since December 1956, when the visitors defeated Denmark 5-2 in a World Cup match. Under the famous lights of the Molineux, which according to our report “a Christmas lightning gave a gentle evening”, Tom Finney and Stanley Matthews threw guests on their benches. Tommy Taylor scored a hat-trick when his friend Busby Babe Duncan Edwards scored several long-range shots and also hit the woods twice. Our man Silchester (aka John Arlott) said: “His Turkishness was interesting, he was truly unique in modern representative football.”
Not that everything was perfect. Arlott noted that “Denmark were defeated by a light that, largely unrealistically, came out of a very broken midfield, adding that” few English teams will be so unlucky behind them, they will pass so vaguely in the middle of the field. be, and play with very few manufacturers. , and yet succeed at such an impressive rate. Ow, tough crowd. But a 5-2 win is a 5-2 win, and you can be sure that Gareth Southgate will get an equally mixed bag tonight.
This match will be played behind closed doors. Yes, technically. This is a penalty for complicity in Wembley ahead of last year’s Euro 2020 final. The FA was fined € 100,000 by UEFA and the stadium was banned for two games, although the second match was suspended for two years. However, just as Hungary welcomed 30,000 children and lawyers at the closed Puskas Arena last weekend, it is taking advantage of a UEFA rule that allows school children to take part in competitions played behind closed doors, so England will be welcomed today. make up to 3,000 young people.
England is making six changes to the XI that has been named for shooting in Germany. Jack Grealish, Tammy Abraham, Reece James, James Ward-Prowse, Fikayo Tomori and Aaron Ramsdale are among them. Tomori starts first, but Ramsdale gets his second capacity. Harry Kane is now just three goals away from equaling Wayne Rooney’s all-time goalscoring record for England, with Bukayo Saka, John Stones, Kyle Walker and Jordan Pickford sitting on the bench. Calvin Phillips, who was injured against Germany, is named as a substitute but is unable to play. Raheem Sterling bounces off the side.
Italy, meanwhile, is making nine changes to XI, which has been selected to win over Hungary. Gianluigi Donnarumma and Lorenzo Pellegrini are the only two players to wear their shirts.

The last time these two countries met, of course, it happened …
… so England go to tonight’s Group A3 game of the League of Nations with a little revenge on their minds. But more importantly, they can also do it with a success to revive their expectations of group success, or perhaps reduce the likelihood of falling out of it. Now, after losing in Hungary and at least avoiding defeat in Germany, they are at the bottom of the table. Tonight’s opponents, who competed with Germany and defeated Hungary, are in the first row… and European champion Roberto Mancini is twice as motivated to do well in this competition, as he has never been able to reach the World Cup again. This well-established game starts at 19:45 BST. It’s over!
