Italy first attack saw Jorginho received the ball on the edge of the box and he decided to take a strike.

The strike was a good effort from the midfielder but it hit the bar and Poland were saved from what would have been the first goal.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Chelsea midfielder and England international, Ruben Loftus-Cheek has finally bowed to pressure and will leave Chelsea on loan in the January transfer window.

The report was made public by the Daily Mail, which confirmed that the midfielder is now ready to accede to a loan move away from Chelsea.

Loftus-Cheek has reportedly grown frustrated from the limited playing chances he has gotten so far this season with Chelsea coach, Maurizio Sarri not seeing him as a credible player to be in the Blues first eleven.

The England international had a loan spell at Crystal Palace last season, which saw him in his top form and went ahead to earn him a spot in the English national team.

However, this season saw the player refusing to leave on another loan spell as he disclosed he wanted to fight for his space in the Blues squad.

But Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri prefers to start the trio of Kovacic, Kante, and Jorginho in the midfield.

His limited playing chances this season has seen him dropped out from England’s national squad.

He has only made one start for Chelsea this season which was in the UEL match against Mol Vidi.

This may be one of the reasons the midfielder is now ready to leave on loan with Arsenal or Everton a possible destination.

Sarri Maurizio

Chelsea new coach, Maurizio Sarri is already making a list of players he is likely to sign in the January transfer window.

According to a recent report from The Express, the Italian tactician is planning to make Poland International and Genoa striker, Krzysztof Piatek is number one player to sign come January.

Sarri wants to sign Piatek as another option to the Blues attack since the duo of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud have refused to perform in the current campaign.

Krzysztof Piatek, 23, came into the limelight following his performance for Genoa in the Italian Seria A this season.

According to the record, Piatek already has found the back of the net for Genoa on nine occasions in Serie A and has also netted four Coppa Italia goals, making it a total of 13 goals in a short period.

However, the Blues will be faced with stiff competition from other European football clubs who are also keenly interested in him.

Also, Genoa are not ready to let him in go in January as they hope to at least keep him till the end of this season.

A report from Italy made it known that Genoa could let him go if a willing club comes with £44 million as transfer fee.

England vs Spain

Coach Gareth Southgate will be leading the English national team to a fierce battle against Spain in the Uefa Nations League tomorrow.

England will hope to have their first win by defeating a tougher Spanish side tomorrow having wasted the opportunities to defeat Croatia earlier.

Gareth Southgate has made some changes in the Three Lions squad, one of which is their football formation.

Back in the summer World Cup, coach Gareth Southgate made use of three center backs, he is however now using the 4 – 3 – 3 football formation.

Southgate making use of 3 forwards means the duo of Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford will play alongside Harry Kane, who is the centre-forward.

England will play against Spain without Jordan Henderson and John Stones, who were suspended.

The suspension is a set back for the team with Southgate finding it hard to make the right decision on who to start to replace the two players.

Below is how England may line up against Spain tomorrow.

Goalpost: this area will be managed by Pickford Jordan.

Defense: Chilwell and Walker will play on the left and right wing respectively while the duo of Harry Maguire and Joe Gomez will cover the center back.

Midfield: the trio of Ross Barkley, Winks and Dier will cover the area.

Attack: Kane, Rashford, and Sterling will lead at the front.
