Giacomo Raspadori who is Victor Osimhen Napoli’s teammate has sent the Three Lions of England into UEFA Nations League B with a game to spare.
England who were shockingly the bottom nation in a group that has Germany, Italy, and Hungary knew nothing short of victory at San Siro will help their cause, but failed on Friday.
A sloppy defending from Manchester City defender, Kyle Walker, gifted Giacomo Raspadori the chance to bend in the only goal of the game.
The 1-0 defeat condemned England to their worst run of form in eight years, while Italy who also have been abysmal since Euro 2022 success, secured their third in 10 matches.
With 56 days to the start of the World Cup and England facing a historic poor run of form, that has seen the Three Lions go five games without a win and 495 minutes without a goal from open play.
Intensive pressure will be on coach Gareth Southgate to find a solution before their first World Cup game against Iran.
While England have been relegated to the Nation League B, surprisingly, Hungary who defeated Germany at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig sit top of the group.
Hungary top with 10 points, Italy second with 8 points, Germany third with 6 points and England bottom with 2 points.
England will host Germany in their last group game, while Hungary will fight off competition from Italy for the top spot.
