International football returns for the first time since the Qatari World Cup this week as qualification for Euro 2024 begins.

Matches between England and Italy have been pretty tight over the years, though the Azzurri hold a firm edge over the Three Lions in recent years.
Italy won the Euro 2020 final at Wembley on a penalty shootout after goals from Luke Shaw and Leonardo Bonucci forced extra time. Two Nations League games followed, ending 0-0 at Wembley and 1-0 to Italy in Milan thanks to Giacomo Raspadori’s 68th-minute winner.

England and Ukraine have faced off on eight occasions previously. The three Lions have won five of those games and lost only one – a 2010 World Cup qualifier in 2009.
The most recent meeting came at the 2020 European Championship, when England progressed to the semi finals with a crushing 4-0 win in the last eight.
