Quiz! Can you name the line-ups from England vs Italy in the Euro 2012 quarter-finals?
Six years is a long time in international football. England take on Italy in a friendly this week, but with dramatically different line-ups from the sides who clashed half a dozen summers ago in Kiev at Euro 2012.
That was in the early stages of Roy Hodgson’s reign, when a small amount of optimism was stoked by England topping Group D to qualify for the tournament’s knockout stages. Of course, things went south against the Italians in the quarter-finals.
England held on for a 0-0 draw after two hours of Italy-dominated play, before a penalty shootout exit. It probably says a lot about how memorable it was that the tie is best remembered for a certain Italian midfielder’s cheeky spot-kick.
