ENGLAND return to Nations League action TONIGHT with a tough Italian hurdle to overcome in Milan.
The Three Lions remain determined to get revenge over the heartbreak Italy put them through in the Euro 2020 final.
And three points by a healthy score-line would accomplish that as it would see gli Azzurri temporarily drop to the bottom of Group 3.
However, Gareth Southgate’s men are on a horrid run of form which includes losing 4-0 to Hungary in the previous international break.
But the English players will be eager to bounce back with the 2022 Qatar World Cup only a couple of months away.
