  • GOOD EVENING

    Welcome to the live blog for Holland vs Italy.

    Dwight Lodeweges took temporary charge of Holland after Ronald Koeman left the position to become the head coach of his former team, FC Barcelona.

    The Oranje got their UEFA Nations League campaign off to a good start, beating Poland 1-0 thanks to a strike from Tottenham’s Steven Bergwijn.

    Their opponents tonight, Italy, endured a more rocky start to their Nations League campaign when they rescued a point thanks to Stefano Sensi.

    The Azzurri’s almost found themselves on the end of a shock score line and it would have been Roberto Mancini’s former striker at Manchester City, Eden Dzeko who sunk the ship.

    Lodeweges is unlikely to tamper with the side which started against Poland, there are no new fresh injury concerns to worry about.

    New Manchester United Signing, Donny van de Beek is likely to start tonight’s game after starting from the bench in their last fixture.

    Mancini could make one change to the side which started against Bosnia & Herzegovina.

    The Italy boss could bring Giorgio Chiellini into the starting XI after admitting it was a mistake to leave him out in their last fixture.

    Mancini said: “They showed me the line-up, I didn’t have my glasses on and just said it was fine. I didn’t notice Acerbi was there rather than Chiellini.

    “Anyway, we had planned originally for Acerbi to play one game and Chiellini another. I had asked Giorgio if he wanted to play today or on Monday with Holland, he said today, but we’ll have to swap it now.

    “It’s not like we chose a goalkeeper rather than a defender, it’s not a massive difference, but yes, it was an error.”
