Italy vs England live score, updates, highlights & lineups from Euro 2024 qualifier


England’s bid to book their spot at Euro 2024 begins with a tricky test to the reigning tournament champions in Italy.

Gareth Southgate’s men suffered heartbreak in the Euro 2020 final as Italy beat them on penalties in front of their home crowd at Wembley and the pair have been drawn in Group C, along with North Macedonia, Ukraine and Malta.

With the top two from each group securing their spot at next summer’s tournament in Germany, both of today’s teams will be among the favourites to progress and an early triumph in the opener will stand the winner in good stead.

Sporting News is following the match live and providing live score updates, commentary.

Italy vs England live updates, highlights from Euro 2024 qualifier

3rd min: An early warning for England as Di Lorenzo is unmarked in the box from a free-kick but he fluffs his lines and his shot on the volley trickles wide of the post.

We’re underway!

3 mins from kickoff: National anthems done, not sure that’s the best England anthem ever sung but there you go. Italy’s anthem is a belter regardless of who sings it though. That will get the crowd pumped for this one. Kickoff moments away!

10 mins from kickoff: The atmosphere is building in Naples as we count down to kickoff. While Kane is also aiming to make history, Southgate could well be celebrating at full-time too if his side win.

The former Crystal Palace player would become only the third England boss to win 50 matches after Sir Alf Ramsey and Walter Winterbottom.

30 mins from kickoff: All eyes will be on Harry Kane tonight with the England forward chasing one more goal to become his country’s all-time leading goalscorer. He currently sits level on 53 with Wayne Rooney.

He leads the line tonight and scoring in the former home of Diego Maradona will be something special if he manages that feat tonight.

45 mins from kickoff: Well then, Southgate has made a big call with starting Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips. Having played just 344 minutes of football this season his inclusion in the squad was questioned by some. Gareth’s gone one step further and started him tonight.

He’ll be up against Premier League opposition with Arsenal’s Jorginho starting for the hosts.

60 mins from kickoff: The teams are in!

90 mins from kickoff: Will tonight finally be the night England end their shocking recent run of results against the Italians?

The Three Lions have failed to beat tonight’s opponents in the previous six meetings between the two countries, a run that goes back over a decade, including the Euro 2020 final defeat at Wembley.

Here’s a full rundown of the head-to-head meetings between the two sides.

120 mins from kickoff: Hello, and welcome to The Sporting News’ live coverage of England’s Euro 2024 qualifier against Italy. It feels like just the other day we were all watching Lionel Messi guide Argentina to World Cup glory and here we are again with the international fixtures back underway.

This time a place at Euro 2024 is up for grabs. Let’s get going!

Italy vs England lineups

Mancini has the majority of his key stars available for this fixture as he looks to make up for the shock of missing out on a place at the 2022 World Cup.

PSG duo Gianluigi Donnarumma and Marco Verratti will play a key role, although Federico Chiesa is a doubt due to tendinitis issues.

Italy starting XI (4-3-3): Donnarumma (GK) — Di Lorenzo, Acerbi, Toloi, Spinazzola — Barella, Jorginho, Verratti, — Berardi, Retegui, Pellegrini 

Subs: Falcone, Meret, Darmian, Gnonto, Scmacca, Pessina, Emerson, Scalvini, Cristante, Politano, Tonali, Romagnoli

Southgate has stayed loyal to the majority of his World Cup squad, with Harry Maguire keeping his place despite a lack of regular game time at Manchester United.

Marcus Rashford had been in line to start following a superb run of form in 2023, but he withdrew from the squad on Monday after being hurt in United’s FA Cup win over Fulham. Goalkeeper Nick Pope also pulled out of the squad, citing injury, with Fraser Forster added in his place, while Mason Mount will stay with Chelsea for treatment on a problem.

England starting XI (4-3-3): Pickford (GK) — Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw —  Phillips, Rice, Bellingham — Saka, Kane, Grealish

Subs: Ramsdale, Forster, Trippier, Henderson, Dier, Maddison, Chilwell, Guehi, Gallagher, Foden, Toney
