England Beats Italy to Secure Qualification for Euro 2024

Qualifications for Euro 2024 have given us some pretty wild matches, and the one between England and Italy was among the very best. England secured their spot after making an epic comeback against the defending champions Italy, beating them 3-1 at Wembley on Tuesday. England was out for revenge in their latest match against Italy, after losing to them on penalties in the Euro 2020 final. Gianluca Scamacca gave Italy an early lead 15 minutes into the game, but their luck quickly turned around and England defeated them 3-1 thanks to Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford. England’s coach believes this victory proves that they’re capable of great things, even when coming face to face with the top teams. "We need to make sure we are one of the top seeds next month. We need to win our next two games. We want to be in control of that. We need to keep building. There is more to come from this team. This was the toughest qualifying group, with the seedings,” said Southgate. England topped Group C with 16 points following their victory against Italy, who’ll have to pass Ukraine in their final qualifier for a chance to take the second spot in the rankings.
