England boss Gareth Southgate has named his 23-man squad for Thursday’s match against Italy, dropping the injured Marcus Rashford, Mason Mount and Nick Pope.



Italy and England will meet for the third time in less than two years at the Stadio Maradona on Thursday in the opening match of the Euro 2024 qualifiers.

The Three Lions will travel to the Peninsula with 23 players, but Rashford, Mount and Pope won’t be part of the team. As explained by Gazzetta, Southgate has been forced to drop the trio due to injuries.

The England boss hasn’t replaced Rashford and Mount, while Tottenham keeper Fraser Forster will join his national team and will be available against the Azzurri.

Roberto Mancini also had to adjust his Italy squad following injuries to Federico Chiesa, Ivan Provedel and Federico Dimarco.

Chiesa hasn’t been replaced while Cremonese’s goalkeeper Marco Carnesecchi travelled to Coverciano on Monday and was available for a training session in the afternoon.

West Ham defender Emerson will replace Dimarco, and should train with his compatriots on Tuesday.
