England catch Italy napping as Jamie Vardy belts home goal

England vs Italy Preview Can the Three Lions continue to impress against a shaky Italy side

England played some bright, sophisticated football, particularly coming out of defence, and dominated most of the second half before a late Italy rally.

Chiesa's theatrical fall did not initially impress German referee Deniz Aytekin but after the intervention of VAR he pointed to the spot and, with boos ringing around the stadium, Insigne beat Jack Butland with a flawless spot kick.

The two sides had plenty in common as the respective bosses fielded youthful lineups, however the home side were using the match as a warm-up to this summer's World Cup, while Italy were facing a rebuild under interim boss Gigi Di Biagio after a humiliating playoff exit to Sweden. The likes of Bonucci are top-level players and they should ensure that Italy doesn't concede many goals against England. Some people thought VAR worked perfectly; others thought England were hard done by.

England begin their World Cup campaign against Tunisia in Volgograd, Russia on June 18.

"Raheem Sterling, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jesse Lingard did well running from midfield and Jamie scored a really good goal". Subs: Adam Lallana (for Oxlade-Chamberlain, 59) 6, Danny Rose (for Trippier, 59) 5, Marcus Rashford (for Vardy, 70) 5, Lewis Cook (for Lingard, 70) 5, Jordan Henderson (for Stones, 79) 5. Another chance for Immobile!

Italy were also the opponents when Butland made his England debut in 2012, a 2-1 win in Bern. His run in the first half led to England's opener as he was brought down just outside the box. Lingard's quick free-kick after Sterling had eventually succumbed to the second of two ankle taps from Marco Parolo created the opening by releasing Vardy.

In a statement to ABC10 , Clark's grandmother, Sequita Thompson, said she was inside her home when the shooting occurred. Officers responded to the area along 29th Street and 69th Avenue after reports that a man had been breaking into cars.

Whenever England were in possession the tempo of the play was incredibly slow, contributing to a muted atmosphere inside the stadium after the home side's disappointing start. The superb Sterling, on the left of the box, picked out a ideal pass to Young, who slalomed past his man and whacked a low shot that was crucially blocked by the stretching Bonucci.

It was a marginal call as Chiesa appeared to be already off balance when Tarkowski inadvertently trod on his foot.

"I don't think it's too late for anybody", Southgate told reporters.

Butland dived the right way but was unable to keep out Insigne's spot-kick as England saw a sixth successive clean sheet snatched from their grasp in the closing stages. England aren't happy at all.

"The first five minutes we were very sloppy".

Mattia De Sciglio moved swiftly to deny Jamie Vardy an opening as England responded, meanwhile, Immobile passed up another opportunity for the Italians, nodding horribly off target from close range, this after arriving unmarked to meet Antonio Candreva's pinpoint centre.
