Recapping the European Under-21 Championship-Minute by Minute Update of England vs. Italy

If you missed the live update of the England and Italy UEFA European Under-21 Championship, then you’re in luck.

As we recap what occurred on that fateful day when England had to bow down against the mighty Italians, here’s a quick update for all of you!

The Championship came as a disappointment to England as they lost 1-3 against Italy. The match was at Czech Republic, Ander stadium.

Portugal drew the game with Sweden in the other group game, hence, one more point would have put England in the semi-finals.

But they concluded with two goals in the first half with Marco Benassi and Andrea Belotti scoring them.

Benassi’s goal was declared as the second one, which was with a header. Although, Nathan Redmond scored late, but by that time England was already at the bottom of the group.

England’s win on Sunday over Sweden means they could have done with one more victory in their kitty at Czech Republic.

Their decision to remove players, who are eligible and have been promoted in the senior squad include Ross Barklet, Raheem Sterling, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. It will be under renewed scrutiny.

Coach Gareth Southgate was famously known as the guy who secured world cup draw in 1988, 0-0 against Italy, but his side disappointed by not showing discipline.
