England vs. Italy may be a friendly but it remains crucial for Roy Hodgson

England manager Roy Hodgson says in-form forward Danny Welbeck is among a host of names who will be unavailable for Tuesday's friendly with Italy due to injury.

Perspiration dripped from Roy Hodgson's forehead as he delivered his verdict on England's 2-1 loss to Italy in Manaus, their opening match of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. But he was not sweating on suffering a defeat.

The Amazonian heat was oppressive for fans and journalists. His players' drop in energy levels in the second half was wholly understandable considering the 84.2 degree Fahrenheit temperature and 88 percent humidity, but the English had taken heart from a spirited performance. There...

Verratti struggles to escape Pirlo's shadow in Italy's midfield

Italy head coach Antonio Conte admits he's going to use Tuesday's friendly against England in Turin as an opportunity to feature many of the squad's younger players.
Eder's beautiful debut goal for Italy came late and helped earn a draw to increase their unbeaten run in qualification competitions to 45.

For La Gazzetta dello Sport, it was "Verratti Time". Saturday's Euro 2016 qualifier against Bulgaria in Sofia was anticipated as the moment for the "little owl" to deliver for his country like he does for his club.

Daniele De Rossi had been left out of the squad on account of a loss of form, while also missing was Andrea Pirlo, who stayed in Turin to complete his recovery from a groin strain, and Claudio Marchisio, who suffered a controversial and bitterly disputed injury during a warm-up at Italy's...

Can Verratti, De Gea and Kane break into their national teams' starting XIs?

The ESPN FC crew debate whether or not Harry Kane should start up front for England against Lithuania.
England head coach Roy Hodgson, and striker Wayne Rooney are confident about Harry Kane's debut in the European qualifier against Lithuania.

The European Championship's expansion to a 24-team tournament has a multitude of effects -- one is that it effectively gives the major countries a free pass. Therefore, managers have more license to experiment and evolve their side with significantly less risk of failure.

Here are five fine talents still attempting to break into their country's first-choice XI -- what chance do they have of overhauling more established names?

1. Marco Verratti, Italy

By this stage, we expected Verratti to be Italy's...

Three Points: Italy vs. Croatia

Croatia respond quickly to Italy's early goal to draw with in this group H clash of the table leaders in a game that was extended due to flares being thrown onto the pitch.
Play was suspended between Italy and Croatia in Milan after flares rained down from the stands onto the pitch.
Croatia and Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric had to leave his side's Euro 2016 Qualifying match against Italy due to an apparent thigh injury.

A trio of observations on Italy and Croatia's 1-1 draw in Euro 2016 qualifying.

1. Conte takes the draw

Antonio Conte believes appetite comes with eating -- winning begets winning. Up until now Italy had won all four games since his appointment and another one on Sunday would have matched the record for the best ever start made by an Azzurri coach, as established by Edmondo Fabbri and equalled by Azeglio Vicini.

So why, then, did Conte say before the game that "we don't need to win to be satisfied...

Explaining Antonio Conte's gamble to call up Mario Balotelli to Italy

Antonio Conte has given his opinion on Mario Balotelli by calling him up to the national team.

It was a surprise. A bolt from the Azzurro if you will. No one expected Mario Balotelli to feature in the latest Italy squad. But there it was, his name standing out in print on the 26-man list released by the FIGC on Sunday evening for the crunch upcoming qualifier against Croatia in Milan and the friendly with Albania in Genoa.

Returning to Coverciano for the first time since the World Cup in Brazil, Balotelli's actions in Natal had left the impression of there being little or no chance of him...

Milan men Abate, Montolivo and El Shaarawy key to Italy hopes

The ESPN FC panel discuss Iceland's surprising form in their European qualification campaign, AC Milan's ability to return to prominence and Raheem Sterling's work ethic.

Despite winning all four games since replacing Cesare Prandelli as Italy coach, Antonio Conte has failed to convince entirely thus far. The former Juventus boss has guided the Azzurri to joint-top in Group H of Euro 2016 qualifying, but tense wins over Azerbaijan and Malta have left the Italian media with more questions than answers.

While individuals have been praised, the collective have fallen short of impressing with La Gazzetta dello Sport noting that Italy "failed to show up" particularly...
