England face the very real prospect of embarrassing relegation to League B ahead of their Nations League trip to Italy on Friday.
The Three Lions’ campaign got off to a dismal start in June, when they picked up two points from four games.
That run ended in the humiliation of a 4-0 collapse at home to Hungary – England’s worst home defeat in 94 years.
Gareth Southgate’s side must now win at the San Siro if they are to avoid falling to the bottom tier, with Italy sitting three points above them in third.
The two teams are familiar with each other now, having met in the Euro 2020 final last summer, when the Azzurri triumphed on penalties, and in a 0-0 draw in June.
Roberto Mancini’s side won’t take part in the 2022 World Cup due to their shock play-off loss to North Macedonia.
But England will be desperate to regain form this month with the showpiece event in Qatar fast approaching.

Spaniard Jesús Gil Manzano will be the referee for the match Italy against England.
Italy v England is played at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan – otherwise known as the San Siro.

Kick off and chain
Kick-off is at 7.45pm BST on friday september 23 and is shown by Channel 4 United Kingdom. See below for international streaming options.
If you’re out of the country for a series of Premier League matches, your domestic on-demand services unfortunately won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are thanks to your IP address (boo!). You won’t be able to watch it, which isn’t ideal if you’ve paid for a subscription and still want to follow the action without resorting to the illegal streams you’ve found on Reddit.
But help is at hand. To work around this, all you have to do is get a virtual private network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, which means the service can’t determine where you are and won’t automatically block the service you paid for. All information in between is fully encrypted – and that’s a result.
