Italy will welcome England at the San Siro this Friday night as they try to secure a win in this UEFA Nations League clash. The Italians suffered a poor 5-2 defeat at the hands of Germany in their last European outing, so they will be eager to right the wrongs from that match later this week.

Roberto Mancini will set his players up in a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make a lot of changes to his starting XI for this game. Gianluca Scamacca and Sandro Tonali might get a chance to play from the start as Mancini looks to find the winning formula versus England this Friday.

4-3-3 Italy Predicted Lineup To Face England

Defence

Gianluigi Donnarumma will function in goal for Italy after shipping in five goals versus Germany earlier this year. Alessandro Bastoni could partner Leonardo Bonucci at the heart of Mancini’s defence as they look to secure a clean sheet versus the Three Lions later this week.

Giovanni Di Lorenzo is expected to get a start at right-back while Emerson Palmieri looks to catch the eye on the other flank as the left-back. Both of them will get the license to get forward and join in on the attack whenever they can afford to do so.

Luiz Felipe will offer cover for the centre-half positions on the bench.

Midfield

Mancini could opt for a midfield three of Nicolo Barella, Jorginho and Sandro Tonali for this game. The Italy manager will ask them to dominate possession in the middle of the park and create some clear-cut chances to win this UEFA Nations League contest at home.

Manuel Locatelli will probably have to settle for a place on the bench as he waits for his chance to make an impact in the second half if needed.

Attack

Wilfried Gnonto will get a chance to impress as the left-winger while Vincenzo Grifo tries to give a good account of himself from the right.

Gianluca Scamacca will lead the line for Mancini’s team in the final third. The West Ham United striker could get a rare chance to catch the eye for Italy when he laces up to face off against the English centre-halves this Friday night.

Ciro Immobile, Matteo Politano and Giacomo Raspadori will be named on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the latter stages if the Italians are in need of a goal by then.
