The signs are good for England at the moment and they can back up their win in The Netherlands with another positive result against Italy tonight.
While Gareth Southgate may not have the same talent available as some of his predecessors, he appears to have more tactical nous and switching to a back three seems to have compensated for some of his squad’s shortcomings.
The 1-0 win in Amsterdam extended the Three Lions’ unbeaten run to seven and also signalled a fifth straight clean sheet.
Another shutout would mark the first time since 2006 they have kept six in a row and Southgate will fancy his side’s chances against an uninspiring Azzurri outfit.
The Italians missed out on a place in Russia via the play-offs and were sluggish in Friday’s 2-0 defeat to Argentina.
They are currently a team in transition and with no permanent manager, England can take advantage.
The other game that I’ll be keeping an eye on is Germany against Brazil in Berlin.
These sides are numbers one and two in the betting to win the World Cup and tonight’s game marks their first meeting since the famous 7-1 in Belo Horizonte four years ago.
