Current table in the UEFA Nations League
Italy go into their fifth UEFA Nations League group match on five points. To see the next round, they need to go all-in chasing a win. A draw is probably not enough to stay in the race for advancement, unless Lady Luck is on their side. A third place finish is still a possibility, but the hosts want to stay in this tournament. England are still looking to claim their first win in the UEFA Nations League, and time is running out. A meagre two points so far is a disappointing outcome, and they’ll be motivated to get on the board on Friday.
