ENGLAND v ITALY BETTING PREVIEWEngland went through qualification for this summer’s tournament unbeaten, though they have won just two of the six games they have played since booking their place in Brazil. They beat Peru in their first of three warm-up games two weeks ago, before drawing with Ecuador and Honduras in Miami.
Roy Hodgson is likely to pick a fairly reliable XI to face Italy, with Danny Welbeck and Adam Lallana, both of whom do plenty of defensive work, in behind Daniel Sturridge. Alex Oxlade Chamberlain is set to miss the first game but should be fit come the Uruguay game.
Despite winning just one of their last eight games coming into the tournament, the Azzurri are slightly favourite here. Prior to that match in Rio de Janeiro, Cesare Prandelli’s side drew with both the Republic of Ireland and Luxembourg.
Andrea Barzagli is a slight doubt for the game while right back De Sciglio is out through injury. Alessio Cerci could join Mario Balotelli in attack, though the in-form Ciro Immobile is another option whose pace could trouble England's defence.
They sides last met in the quarter-finals of Euro 2012. While they may only have lost on penalties, the Three Lions were thoroughly outclassed. Having conceded at least twice against Denmark, Armenia, Nigeria and Fluminense in that period, Cesare Prandelli’s side are unlikely to keep a clean sheet against the in-form Rooney-Sturridge duo.
