How to watch England vs Italy for free: The Nations League fixtures continue this weekend as England face Italy. Here’s how to watch the game for free on TV and online in the UK.
It’s 11-months since these two sides met in the Euro 2020 (well, 2021) final at Wembley, which the Three Lions lost in heartbreaking fashion on penalty kicks.
However, in the year that has followed, a lot of water has passed under the bridge. England secured qualification for this winter’s World Cup in Qatar, while the reigning European Champions Italy surprisingly failed to make it.
The stakes are much lower for this Saturday’s game. The UEFA Nations League – a tournament of glorified friendlies – comes at the end of a long season for most of the players involved, and this is the third of four fixtures before England and Italy’s players get to down tools for the summer.
As such, we can probably expect England boss Gareth Southgate to name a side with freshness in mind, and we may see some of the fringe players get a runout.
England vs Italy kick-off time
England vs Italy kicks off at 7:45pm UK time on Friday June 10. The game is being played Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Molyneux Stadium.
There is one carry-over from the game at the Euros though; the game will be played behind closed doors due to the shameful behaviour of England supporters at the final. Even Southgate himself says its an ’embarrassment’ for the country.
