Expert prediction

Matthew Howarth, match reporter
England's strong finish to Tuesday's draw with Germany in Munich was largely down to the late introductions of Jack Grealish and Jarrod Bowen, but will Gareth Southgate abandon his safety-first approach in favour of a more offensive line-up against the Three Lions' EURO 2020 final conquerors? The Azzurri suffered a chastening defeat in their last game on English soil – losing 3-0 to Argentina in the Finalissima earlier this month – but will be determined to maintain their unbeaten start to Group A3 at Molineux.

What the coaches say

Roberto Mancini, Italy coach: "I expect a tough game, as all matches against England are tough. We have not yet decided who will play, we will see after the last training session. That goes for [Wilfried] Gnonto and the others, especially those who have played two matches in a row. It will be a different match from the [UEFA EURO 2020] final."

Gareth Southgate, England manager: "It's important our players understand how we want them to play; we give them a structure but we want their own individual talents to come out. It's a balance between knowing we've got to win matches but also trying to find out about players and getting good experiences. It's been great to have time with the players; they've been really receptive to our ideas."
