How to watch Italy vs England: Watch the Nations League game on free TV and live stream online

How to watch Italy vs England for free: The Nations League resumes tonight as England face their Euro 2020 conquerers Italy. Here’s how to watch and stream on free TV in the UK.

It’s sort of hard to believe, but there’s a World Cup in two months. For international managers, time is running short to settle on their squads for the oddity of a mid-season tournament, in a place where it’s too hot to play in the summer – Qatar.

England have struggled in the Nations League since suffering the disappointment against tonight’s opponents in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley. They are winless after the first four games of the Nations League and a loss in Milan tonight will see England drop out of the A-tier of nations and into Group B. Ouch. Hardly befitting of the European Championship finalists and the World Cup semi-finalists of 2018.

There’s a chance at redemption this evening though, as Gareth Southgate’s squad battles Roberto Mancini’s side once more, looking to build momentum ahead of the World Cup. Italy, of course, won’t be going to Qatar after spectacularly failing to qualify for the tournament. It’s the second straight World Cup where the four-times winners won’t be present.

Gareth Southgate has named a strong team for tonight’s game, with skipper Harry Kane leading the line with Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling and Bukayo Saka in support. Jude Bellingham also gets a start after his super performance for Dortmund against Man City in the Champions League and will partner Declan Rice in midfield. Reece James starts at right back alongside Harry Maguire, Eric Dyer and Kyle Walker. Nick Pope is in goal.

Here’s how to watch Italy vs England in the Nations League tonight on free-to-air TV in the UK, on the best TV, best smartphone or best laptop you have in the house.
