England’s Euro 2024 qualifying campaign begins with a difficult trip to Naples to face Italy in a repeat of the last European Championship final.

The two sides have become familiar foes in recent years; this is their fourth meeting since the Euro 2020 final at Wembley, which the Azzurri won on penalties.

Last year there were two UEFA Nations League meetings between the teams, Italy picking up a 0-0 draw away before winning 1-0 in Milan in September thanks to a Giacomo Raspadori strike.

England therefore head to the peninsula without a win against Italy in their last six attempts, since a 2-1 friendly victory in August 2012.

Kick-off is at 7:45pm GMT. 


Italy (4-3-3)

1 G Donnarumma; 2 Di Lorenzo, 3 Tolói, 15 Acerbi, 4 Spinazzola; 18 Barella, 8 Jorginho, 6 Verratti; 11 Berardi, 19 Retegui, 10 Pellegrini

England (4-3-3)

1 Pickford; 2 Walker, 5 Stones, 6 Maguire, 3 Shaw; 8 Phillips, 4 Rice, 10 Bellingham; 7 Saka, 9 Kane, 11 Grealish

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Euro 2024 qualifiers from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a Euro 2024 qualifier, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Euro 2024 qualifiers, FourFourTwo currently recommends:


ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
