WORLD CUP INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLIES RESULTS

England 1-1 Italy

 

With an opening goal from Jamie Vardy, England came very close to victory against Italy, only to be denied late on by James Tarkowski’s clumsy tackle on Federico Chiesa and Lorenzo Insigne’s easy penalty. England won in Holland and held Italy to give them confidence going into the World Cup 2018 tournament this summer.

 

England 1-1 Italy

 

England goal: Jamie Vardy (26' minutes)

Italy goal: Lorenzo Insigne (87' minutes pen)

 

Jamie Vardy scored past Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma to record his first goal for England in more than a year, but the Three Lions were denied a second successive friendly victory by a late Italy penalty awarded by the video assistant referee (VAR) at Wembley Stadium. England manager Gareth Southgate's side were enjoying their lead given to them by Vardy's powerful 26th-minute finish, fired past new superstar goalie Donnarumma after Jesse Lingard's free-kick caught the visitors out. England looked to be ensuring a confidence-boosting win until a late intervention from VAR. Referee Deniz Aytekin consulted VAR after England debutant James Tarkowski tangled with Italy’s Federico Chiesa, and decided the Burnley defender had stepped on the Italian's foot, allowing Lorenzo Insigne to beat Jack Butland with just three minutes left. The frustrated England side complained emphatically about the award of the spot-kick, but VAR got this one right much to Southgate's frustration as he was clearly unhappy with the penalty decision.

 

England finished the clash frustrated that Italy's late penalty denied them a win they deserved that would have recorded back-to-back victories in these two friendlies that are their last before Southgate names a provisional World Cup squad on 14 May. To their credit, England was energized and motivated in attack, even without the injured Harry Kane. England manager Southgate will be desperate for the Tottenham Hotspur superstar striker to recover fully on schedule from his knee injury. England looked focused and ambitious going forward, but in need of Kane's killer instinct, to pose a serious threat this summer in Russia.

 

Burnley defender Tarkowski conceded the penalty late on in an assured debut. His look of despair as referee Deniz Aytekin awarded the spot-kick was apparent in a frustrating outcome for England. Superb Raheem Sterling must have felt the love of Manchester City and England's fans. Sterling asked supporters to show the team some love before the match and he was warmly applauded by the Wembley crowd after his excellent performance as he was named Man of the Match. Sterling carried his outstanding Manchester City form onto the international stage in the friendly double-header with the Netherlands and Italy. In the first half, his strong running unsettled the Italy defense as he emerged as England's main attacking threat. Sterling stayed on his feet after being fouled twice to create a chance for Vardy and he was brought down again for the free-kick that Lingard took to set the Leicester City striker up for his goal. Sterling has enjoyed a superb season under Pep Guardiola's management at Etihad Stadium. Sterling will be a key player for England in the World Cup.

 

After the match, Southgate said that the VAR decision is not clear and obvious. Referee Deniz Aytekin consulted VAR after Burnley defender James Tarkowski tangled with Federico Chiesa.

 

"I'm glad it's not the World Cup just yet. I think the ruling is 'clear and obvious' and it's not. It's one you can debate all day,” said England boss Gareth Southgate about VAR. "It looks like James Tarkowski stands on him but it's during the running process and he's going down anyway. I think the referee had a good view already. I don't think with incidents like that VAR will clear things up. An obvious handball and stuff like that then maybe - but we have to get on with it."

 

"If VAR is going to turn us over, it's better to happen now. A clear and obviously deserved victory taken away. It's irrelevant whether they think it was a penalty or not. VAR is there for the obvious howlers. This was far from that," said Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker on Twitter.

 

England have lost only 1 of their last 20 international matches at Wembley Stadium - winning 15. That defeat was by the Netherlands in March 2016 and the Three Lions are unbeaten in 10 games at the national stadium since then. England have only earned 1 win in their last 8 matches against Italy, and have failed to keep a clean sheet in 6 of the past 7 games.

England Vs. Italy - International Friendly

Raheem Sterling, England, Man of the Match

 

Man of the match is Raheem Sterling who was England’s biggest threat against Italy. He had pace and skill and his direct running troubled Italy all night.

 

Squads

 

Dele Alli was not on the starting squad for either of England's two friendlies against the Netherlands and Italy, but started both games on the subs' bench, with only a cameo appearance in Amsterdam. Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Ali is a certainty to be chosen for the World Cup squad and a strong contender for a starting place. Rival Lingard has shown his ability to be a game changer and Raheem Sterling also showed his quality. Alli is still an outstanding talent but he has some serious competition for his place.

 

“We’ve picked the team we have because we want to keep some stability. We made some good progress the other night. Obviously, we need to look at some other players as well, but tonight is a really good test for us. James Tarkowski has done really well with us and his club, and he fits the way we want to play,” said Southgate about his squad choices. “We’ve also got to look at options at center-back: we’re very happy with the players who have played there up until now, but we need to see other guys who could come in. Jack Butland knew he was playing at the end of last week: most of his caps have come away so it’s nice for him to play here. Jesse Lingard and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were excellent the other day: they can break forward and score goals. Dele Alli’s not been able to train fully, but of course, he’s a very important player for us. We need a little bit more composure with the final ball, but we’ll create chances and we have the guys who can finish them. We want to finish this week on a high.”

 

Gareth Southgate handed England debuts to James Tarkowski and Lewis Cook. Burnley defender Tarkowski lined up on the left of Southgate’s new back three, replacing Joe Gomez and Harry Maguire. Jack Butland took his turn in goal; Ashley Young took the place of Danny Rose at left wing-back; Eric Dier came in for Jordan Henderson, and Jamie Vardy replaced Marcus Rashford up front.

 

Italy made four changes to the side that lost to Argentina on Friday night. Davide Zappacosta of Chelsea took the place of Roma’s Alessandro Florenzi at right back. PSG midfielder Marco Verratti made way for Lorenzo Pellegrini of Roma. Inter winger Antonio Candreva replaced Fiorentina’s Federico Chiesa. Juve keeper Gianluigi Buffon at 40 years old with 176 caps made way for 19-year-old, four-cap Milan star Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Note: All fans attending matches at the World Cup need to apply for a "FAN ID" following a request from the Russian authorities. The special ID is designed with the purpose to keep hooligans out of the stadium and reduce the risk of fan violence to a minimum. At Euro 2016 Russian fans were involved in violent clashes with their English counterparts in Marseille ahead of the two countries’ group stage match.

England manager Gareth Southgate and Harry Kane

“I think, in my mind, my gauge of success would be that we come back from the tournament with the fans proud of how we’ve played and that means we’ll have played well and won some matches,” said Southgate. “So that’s my focus, to focus on the performances and to constantly improve on the performances.”

England’s Harry Kane sees no reason for the Three Lions to worry about their World Cup opponents and groups.

“I’m not one to really think about trying to avoid teams,” said Kane. “If you want to win a big tournament, you’re going to have to play the best teams sooner or later.We’re positive, but we’re not getting too ahead of ourselves. We know we’ve still got a lot of work to do and we’ve got some great friendly games coming up between now and the finals.”

Gary Lineker will co-host the 2018 World Cup draw. Former England striker Gary Lineker will play a crucial role in deciding his home country's World Cup fate. The Match of the Day presenter will conduct the draw for the group stages of the World Cup alongside Russian sports journalist Maria Komandnaya.

"As a player, I was fortunate enough to take part in the World Cup finals on two occasions," Lineker told Fifa's official website.  "It is quite special to be involved in yet another tournament, now on the stage, unveiling the results of the draw. I have been on the other side, waiting to find out my opponents, and I know how exciting this occasion is."

Lineker was forced to defend his decision to host the draw having been a vocal critic of Fifa corruption in recent years.

"I’m hosting the draw for a World Cup that I’ve watched all my life, played in twice, won its Golden boot and will present for. I just wish I could still play in it. Doesn’t make it a political endorsement."

Lineker revealed he drawn England in a group containing Belgium, Senegal, and Japan during a rehearsal for Friday's main event.

"Just had my first production and logistics meeting for next week’s draw," he tweeted.  "Had a quick run through (it’s complicated) and England ended up in Group B with Belgium, Senegal, and Japan."

England qualified for the World Cup without losing a single game in qualifying and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes Gareth Southgate's side have the ability to lift win the tournament.

"I think England must have a chance because the players are really good," Mourinho told Sky Sports News. "There's a great generation of players at different ages and with different qualities. They have good experience at club level, playing in the Premier League and plenty of them play in the Champions League too. England have great potential to do something important."

Mourinho did concede that Southgate's men would not go into next summer as tournament favorites.

"In South America, there are a couple of important teams, in Europe the same three or four so I can't believe next summer we will have a huge surprise."

Gareth Southgate has suggested he might prepare his team for the prospect of a penalty shootout by making his players take penalties in front of a crowd at Wembley. Southgate has hinted that England could practice penalties in front of a crowd at Wembley.  

"It's something that we are considering how we prepare best for penalty shoot-outs," said Southgate. "Whether that's something on the training ground, whether that's in sessions we do away from the training ground, or something we do in some sort of match scenario. We've not finalized that yet but clearly, that is an option."

Barcelona v Eibar - La Liga

GOLDEN BALL AWARD

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are favored to win the Golden Ball Award, with Messi having won the prize despite suffering defeat in the World Cup Final Argentina in 2014. Thomas Muller was the runner up to Messi and could be prominent again if Germany repeat as world champions, with Toni Kroos and Manuel Neueralso likely to be integral to Die Mannschaft's attempt to retain their title and trophy. Neymar was having an amazing World Cup run before he was injured in the quarter-finals in 2014. Watch Neymar shine and compete at another level when he plays for his country as the “undisputed star” of his side. Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba are stars for France. Sergio Ramos is key to a Spain revival.

Germany, defending World Cup Champions

Defending champions Germany are currently favourites to win the World Cup again. Germany boss Joachim Low will be without former captain Philipp Lahm, who has retired. Bastian Schweinsteiger has left Europe for MLS. However Germany boasts top players Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels, Toni Kroos, Mesut Ozil and Thomas Muller. Germany qualified at the top of their group with a perfect record, scoring 43 goals in 10 games.

Euro 2016 finalists France are also in top form and in contention. Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe are just some of the stars Les Bleus will be relying on but Didier Deschamps' side had to wait until their final qualifying match to win their group.

Brazil and Spain both had impressive qualifying campaigns. 

Brazil v Colombia - 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Qualifier - 3 of 118

Brazil can boast attacking talent in abudance, with Neymar, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino forming a dangerous front trio.

New Spain star is Barcelona's Paulinho, who, despite flopping at Tottenham Hotspur, is a promising key player for his country. Spain are hoping to come back after being eliminated at the group stage of the 2014 World Cup and knocked out in the round of 16 at Euro 2016. Julen Lopetegui's side have won nine of their 10 qualifiers, finishing five points clear of Italy.

Argentina are also rated as contenders despite their poor qualification campaign, but do not underestimate Belgium, Italy and England to win the tournament.
