10 ‘Bonucci is booked.
9 ‘First changes for Mancini who makes room for Cristante and Berardi, out of Barella and Immobile.

The second half begins.
49 & # 39; Bonucci does not find a solution and tries to shoot from a sidereal distance: far out. The first half ends.
47 ‘Turn of the Property in the box, but Stones deflects his right on the fly. In the continuation of the action Verratti tries to kick, but the shot is weak and does not worry Pickford.
45 ‘Large number of Insigne holding the ball and serving Emerson in tow. The full-back of Italy has the space to kick but the right foot is not his foot: lost the time of the game, nothing done. The referee awards 4 minutes of recovery.
43 ‘Italy does not find the right raid, England looks for Sterling long but the English striker slams on Di Lorenzo and Donnarumma collects without pressure.
39 ‘Yet another offside of Immobile served by Insigne. The two have not yet entered the game.

27 ‘Barella and Verratti reverse the position: Mancini changes something to surprise England.
25 ‘Counterattack by Italy, but Insigne misses the cut for Immobile. The ball lands on Maguire’s feet who sweeps. The warm-up of Locatelli, Pessina and above all Cristante that Mancini had chosen as a substitute for Jorginho is eased.
23 ‘Problems for Jorginho, but after 120 seconds off the pitch the director of the national team is back on the pitch.
21 ‘England continues to dribble from one band to another, Italy fails to buffer. For now, the Southgate men are in complete control.
17 ‘Jorginho fishes Emerson deep on the left, the control is bad. The referee stops the action for offside.
15 & # 39; Mancini’s Italy continues to suffer on the wings and does not take the measures to Shaw and Trippier. The Azzurri’s possession of the ball does not endanger the English rearguard.
12 ‘Trippier wide on the right is too free: another insidious cross, this time Di Lorenzo is early but concedes the corner. On the developments of the Donnarumma corner at the exit, he avoids other problems.

8 & # 39; Insigne’s free-kick from an excellent position is the first blue opportunity, but the right ends up high.
6 ‘Italy tries to react with ball possession on the English trocar, but the defense designed by Southgate is a difficult wall to overcome.
2 ‘England, Shaw. Worse than this, Italy could not start: in the English restart inattention in defense, England in the open field catches Shaw with a perfect change of play by Trippier. Di Lorenzo is surprised by the shoulders, the winger finds the winning counterbalance. Italy immediately under a goal.
2 ‘Corner of Insigne, England removes all danger.
The match began, after the gesture of solidarity for Black Lives Matter with both teams on their knees.
Italy does not go to 4-3-3 with the false nine in the middle of the attack but confirms Immobile, an injection of confidence for the striker who wants to respond with a goal in the most important match. Southgate, on the other hand, switched to the 3-man defense as it already happened against Germany. The defense could have been the weak point of this team, but it turned out to be the exact opposite: only one goal conceded. For Italy, with one more man, it will be even more difficult to score.

Italy (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Di Lorenzo, Chiellini, Bonucci, Emerson; Barella, Jorginho, Verratti; Church, Building, Insigne. Herds Mancini.
