Youthful Italy re-starting from close to zero - Leonardo Bonucci

Youthful Italy re-starting from close to zero - Leonardo Bonucci

Arsenal's Jack Wilshere was hoping to win his first cap since Euro 2016 in the friendlies against Netherlands and Italy but was forced to withdraw from the squad with a knee injury. However, having chose to consult the video assistant referee, he awarded a penalty with replays suggesting debutant Tarkowski may have stood on Chiesa's foot.

There was a time in the last decade - when England boasted the so-called Golden Generation of Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, Wayne Rooney and John Terry - when the Three Lions routinely went off to tournaments believing the trophy would be theirs.

Teams have to name a provisional 35-man squad by 14 May - with the final 23-man selection by 4 June - two days after England's next friendly against Nigeria.

The opportunity did buoy the Wembley crowd however and the introduction of Adam Lallana changed the tempo of the game slightly, allowing England to increase the dynamism of their attacks.

Most of those who turned up at the Etihad Stadium had gone to see Lionel Messi in action, but he was rested and spent the full 90 minutes sitting in the stands.

If he could point to being under pressure on that occasion, there was no excuse for Immobile's failure to hit the target when picked out by Antonio Candreva's teasing cross from the right.

Well, according to the Mirror, Southgate has already made up his mind.

Gianluigi Buffon has returned from global retirement in an attempt to unite his national side but the veteran goalkeeper is expected to start on the bench at Wembley.

The U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs also have irked Japan, America's closest ally in Asia. Washington reports different figures that put the gap at a record $375.2 billion.

Southgate previously worked with Lingard when he was the U21s manager for England and has maintained his faith in the player in the senior side as well.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain fired straight at Donnarumma from the edge of the penalty area but, crucially, the hosts failed to get a second goal when firmly on top. This week they will be taking on Italy at home.

But there was little controversy over the decision to award a penalty as the replay proved Tarkowski had trod on Chiesa's foot and Insigne wasn't distracted by a lengthy wait to take the penalty as he smashed low into Butland's right-hand corner.

"It's up to the goalkeepers to perform well in the last six or seven matches, and we'll take decisions from there".

Italy arrived at Wembley in the doldrums after becoming the biggest casualties of the qualifying campaign.

Jordan Pickford looked good enough to latch on to the first-choice spot in England's goal for now and should be retained by Gareth Southgate.

While the 101 goals Pickford and Butland have conceded will be a worry for those questioning the quality at Southgate's disposal, they both stack up well in the "saves made" charts.

"They're not at the World Cup because they were in Spain's group, really".
