A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Tuesday:
EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFYING
A European Championship spot is within reach for England as Gareth Southgate’s team hosts scandal-hit Italy at Wembley in a repeat of the 2021 final. England is unbeaten in seven games since last year’s World Cup and will qualify with a win, or even a draw if Ukraine doesn’t beat Malta. Italy is without midfielders Sandro Tonali and Nicolò Zaniolo, who were sent home last week after being questioned by police over alleged involvement in an illegal betting ring. It’s a big match for the Azzurri, who are level with Ukraine three points behind England. Italy returns to the venue where it beat England on penalties to win the European Championship in 2021. “We have great memories of that stadium,” forward Domenico Berardo said. “We’re going to play our game and try to win.”
Hungary can book its place at the European Championship with a win away to Lithuania after an unbeaten campaign so far in its all-Eastern European group. Following a 2-1 win over Serbia on Saturday, Hungary is on the verge of qualifying for its third European Championship in a row. Before the tournament expanded from 16 teams to 24 in 2016, Hungary hadn’t qualified since 1972. Serbia hosts Montenegro in Belgrade as they battle for the second qualifying spot. Neither Serbia nor Montenegro has featured at the European Championship since they both contributed players to the team which played as Yugoslavia in 2000, even though Serbia has regularly qualified for the World Cup since then.
In one of the most open groups of all, Slovenia, Denmark, Finland and Kazakhstan all have hopes of qualifying with three games to go. The only team which can make sure of qualifying Tuesday is Denmark but that requires a particular combination of results in all three of the day’s games. The Danes would need not only to beat San Marino, but also must hope that Kazakhstan draws with Finland and that Slovenia doesn’t lose to fifth-place Northern Ireland.
Two already-qualified teams meet at Lille’s stadium for a friendly as France hosts Scotland. France cruised through its qualifying group with six wins from six games but was beaten 2-1 by Germany in a friendly last month for its first loss since last year’s World Cup final. Scotland too has had an impressive campaign with five wins to qualify for just the second time since 1996.
The England vs Italy live stream is a repeat of the Euro 2020 final. It’s also a significant match for both sides as they look to secure qualification for the Euro 2024 tournament
England could book their place at next year’s European Championship with a win over Italy. The Three Lions currently top Group C, having not lost any of their five qualifying matches. However, the Azzurri are just three points behind and could make up that gap if they can beat England in their own backyard. England are unbeaten since falling to France at World Cup 2022, but their most recent win over Australia in a friendly was far from convincing.
Italy are battling with Ukraine for the 2nd place spot in Group C right now, but could still finish top of the group if they can beat England at Wembley Stadium. Italy failed to qualify for the last World Cup, so they're eager to ensure they don’t miss another major international tournament. Plus, as reigning European champions, it would be hugely disappointing if they’re not defending their title in Germany next summer.
Of course, the most famous recent encounter between these two sides was in the summer of 2021, when the Italians broke English hearts by winning the Euros on penalties. But these sides have met a couple of times since then, including back in March when England emerged victorious thanks to goals from Declan Rice and Harry Kane.
Gareth Southgate’s side are three points clear at the top of Group C with just three games remaining in qualifying. They come into the match knowing that a win would secure their place in Germany next summer but losing to the current European champions would not be a killer blow with fixtures against Malta and North Macedonia still to come.
Tonight’s clash is a repeat of the heart-breaking Euro 2020 final where Italy won a penalty shootout at Wembley to claim the title. The Three Lions have since redeemed that loss with an impressive 2-1 win against Italy in Naples earlier in this qualifying campaign but a second victory over the Azzurri will cement England’s prowess ahead of the upcoming competition.
Luciano Spalleti’s third game in charge of the national side saw Italy beat Malta 4-0 on Saturday to move above Ukraine into second place in the group and he’ll be hoping to keep that winning streak going this evening.
