England vs. Italy Live Stream: On Saturday, June 14, England, winners of the 1966 World Cup will take on the 2006 World Cup winners Italy. There is no telling what Italy is capable of doing; they are a an unpredictable and spontaneous bunch of 11 on the pitch. And their presence in the World Cup since the era of goalkeeper and captain Dino Zoff is memorable indeed.
In most tournament matches, England have been criticized for being laid back and it was against the English side that Maradona of Argentina played ‘his hand of god’ goal in the World Cup. Like the first game in Group A, Brazil vs. Croatia, when a controversial penalty was capitalized by Neymar, skeptics say that Maradona used his head to score against England in the 1986 World Cup.
Italy defeated W. Germany 3-1 to take home the World Cup, which they had last won 44 years earlier. .
