How to watch England vs Italy on free TV in the UK

How to watch England vs Italy: After a narrow victory over Australia last Friday, England now face Italy knowing a win will guarantee them a spot at Euro 2024.

With Scotland among a number of nations already qualified for Euro 2024, it’s now England’s chance to book a spot at the tournament taking place in Germany next summer.

After a rotated squad took on Australia, we’d expect Gareth Southgate to field a much stronger 11 against Italy – a team who also need a win to keep alive hopes of qualifying for the tournament they dramatically won in 2021.

Of course, this is a repeat of the Euro 2020 final, which also took place at Wembley. Italy got the win on that night, however there’s been a lot of change since, with the side failing to reach the 2022 World Cup.

England vs Italy kick-off time

England vs Italy kicks off at 7:45 pm UK time on Tuesday, October 17. London’s Wembley Stadium will play host.

This game is being broadcast free in the UK on live TV. Channel 4 has the rights to show the game, meaning it’ll be live on TV and available via the Channel 4 apps on phones, Android and iOS tablets and the channel’s website.

Coverage starts on Channel 4 at 7:00 pm. There is no 4K or HDR option available, something we have become accustomed to when the BBC has England games available during major tournaments.
