England have World Cup places up for grabs, says Southgate

England's World Cup preparations continues as Gareth Southgate's face another "best of the rest" in the form of Italy.

"Jack will play in goal [against Italy]".

"He has to feel comfortable, he has great potential and with experience he will become one of the world's best". You must have a bet365 a funded account or to have placed a bet in the last 24 hours to watch the game. It's one you can debate all day.

Once Southgate has settled on his final squad, he will turn his attention to England's group stage matches against Tunisia, Panama and Belgium. However, the big thing about this friendly between England and Italy is that you can watch it from England! There will also be an online live stream via the ITV Hub. Southgate could switch to a 3-4-2-1, with Jesse Lingard and Dele Alli playing off of the lone striker.

"I'm glad it's not the World Cup just yet", the England boss told ITV Sport.

For only the second time in their successful history, the Italian national side will not feature at the World Cup this summer after failing to quality in mid-November a year ago. It was actually Federico Chiesa who eventually made something happen for the visitors, though it took a few minutes for that to be decided.

"I like to see them trying to play out and I hope they have the same courage at the tournament and don't try to play percentages".

"We have a much younger team with not much worldwide experience".

But the difference in motivation for both sides failed to show as a slew of substitutions began in the second half with many England players unable to make an impression in their final match before Southgate names his provisional 23-man World Cup squad. Exhausted of the lazy training culture, he wants to change it as soon as possible.

Mattia De Sciglio moved swiftly to deny Jamie Vardy an opening as England responded, meanwhile, Immobile passed up another opportunity for the Italians, nodding horribly off target from close range, this after arriving unmarked to meet Antonio Candreva's pinpoint centre.

The Stoke City stopper will start in goal for England in their friendly against Italy at Wembley tomorrow morning (Singapore time) and is one of four goalkeepers in Southgate's squad alongside Jordan Pickford, Joe Hart and Nick Pope.

On Monday, 84,000 tickets were sold for the match, and with a capacity of 90,000 spectators, we can expect a full house for the England vs Italy friendly. "So, it's a really good test for us to see how far we've come".

Whenever England were in possession the tempo of the play was incredibly slow, contributing to a muted atmosphere inside the stadium after the home side's disappointing start.

That is the way things stayed, bringing an end to England's impressive run of five games without conceding but offering plenty food for thought for Southgate with two friendlies remaining ahead of their travels to Russian Federation.
