England vs Italy

Probable starting eleven: England: Hart, Johnson, Cahill, Jagielka, Baines, Wilshere, Henderson, Gerrard, Lallana, Rooney, Sturridge Italy: Buffon, Abate, Bonucci, Chiellini, de Sciglio, Pirlo, De Rossi, Marchisio, Candreva, Balotelli, Cerci This is the most interesting match in Group D. Both England and Italy are former World Champions and I expect an excellent football. My opinion is England are closer to the victory. England passed through qualifications without any difficulties and finished undefeated on the first position in their group. They were also one of the most efficient team during qualification stage. The atmosphere in the squad is very good and the players confidence are high. The coach Roy Hodgson has few good young players like Sterling, Lallana, Barkley. Whoever starts on this game, he will make lot of problems to the Italians. The experienced players like Steven Gerrard, Rooney or Sturridge will also be fully motivated. Italy are good, but they have some problems. One of the key players Montolivo withdrew from the national team due to an injury. The key player is Juventus midfielder Pirlo, but he is old and I believe Pirlo is tired. Just to mention, Italy struggled against poor Luxembourg and played a shock-draw (1:1 on 04.06). I expect an interesting match and I think The Three Lions will celebrate at the end.
