Italy and England met for the first time since the Euro 2020 final in June for the first of their two meetings in Group A3 on the Nations League scene. The first meeting between the two countries ended in a goalless draw as England failed to win at home to the Italians once again.
England and Italy met for the second and final time in Group A3 of this season’s UEFA Nations League at the San Siro in Milan, Italy on Friday night. Giacomo Raspadori scored the only goal of the game to hand Italy a 1-0 win at the expense of the Three Lions. The Napoli attacker scored the winning goal midway into the second half.
The Italians won their first game in Group A3 with the 2-1 win at home to Hungary. It was their second match in the group.
