UEFA Nations League match definitely happened. England and Italy played to a 0-0 draw at Molineux Stadium in UEFA Nations League play.
This leaves England rooted to the bottom of group three after three matches as they came into the Italy showdown with losses to Hungary and Germany on their resume.
Italy will end the first round atop the group with the draw but neither team will be particularly happy with the result.
Both teams created a few chances but neither attack was at the top of their game with five big chances missed between the two.
While England has been without Trent Alexander-Arnold due to the defender getting a much-needed rest after a long season, this is a squad that should be more than talented enough to score goals.
Southgate's tactics have been criticized in the past but usually, he's able to get the results that England needs.
This week hasn't worked out like that. It's not only that the Three Lions sit at the bottom of their Nations League group, but that they've sored only one goal across these three matches.
A fun challenge is how many right backs can Southgate play in a match as the strongest defensive performances once again came from the flanks.
Keiran Trippier put in a shift at left back, having six recoveries and only being dribbled past once, while tangoing with Matteo Pessima.
Reece James was stellar on the right as well, winning two tackles, creating two chances and only missing four passes during the match. The more right backs, the better for Southgate as they're one of the strengths of the team.
Since James can play in midfield or center back, there is a possibility of seeing Kyle Walker, Alexander-Arnold, James, and Trippier all on the field together.
