England take on Italy on Saturday 14th June, 2014, with kickoff at 23:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BBC1.

Roy Hodgson’s first taste of World Cup football as manager of his own nation comes in the form of a potentially difficult match against the Italians, the proverbial cup team if ever there was one. Each time we come to a major finals Italy look as though their squad isn’t quite there, but they continue to produce results and will be most likely the best side England face in the group stages.

Selection seems like it is worked out for Hodgson now, with the team picking itself to a large extent, and this is almost certainly his only shot at international glory.
