England are the second most successful team in the tournament’s history, winning it 10 times and reaching the final a total of 15 times, and will be looking to add another win to their tally to face the winner of France and Isreal in the final. The Azzurrini on the other hand have lost only 2 of the last 13 matches, and they fancy their chances of reaching their 11th UEFA U19 Championship final.

ENG-U19 vs ITA-U19: Team News

A number of players will be back in England’s starting lineup for Tuesday’s semi-final after numerous changes were made to the team against Israel.

Harvey Vale’s move to the left flank may signal the end of Carney Chukwuemeka’s time as interim captain, but the former will maintain his position in central midfield as one of the tournament’s star performers thus far with two goals and two assists.

Brooke Norton-Cuffy and Callum Doyle, a defensive pairing, are also anticipated to return, and Tottenham’s Dane Scarlett, who has scored eight goals in qualification and the first three games of these playoffs, will start up front.

Italy will also return to form, likely playing in a 4-3-1-2 formation, and Cristian Volpato will look to preserve his starting position up front after scoring the game-winning goal against Romania and the opening goal against France.

The Australian-born attacker, who made his senior debut for Roma toward the close of the previous campaign, should partner Napoli striker Giuseppe Ambrosino up front.

While Sebastiano Desplanches of Milan is back in goal and Fabio Miretti of Juventus plays in midfield, Samuele Giovane, the team’s former left-back, is back to serve as captain.
