A crucial game for European champions Italy, who are in danger of not making it to another major tournament, having missed last year’s World Cup. They lie in third in Group A, albeit with a game in hand over second-placed Ukraine, who will be feeling optimistic after their fine 1-1 draw with England on Saturday. A win for the visitors tonight would be huge for their chances of finishing second behind Gareth Southgate’s side.

The Azzurri could only manage a 1-1 draw with North Macedonia at the weekend, and will tonight host proceedings with Ukraine at San Siro. I’m sure Andriy Shevchenko will be in attendance at the venue where he was so prolific for Milan.

One of the most complete strikers of his generation.

Preamble

Hello and welcome to your one-stop shop for Tuesday’s Euro 2024 qualifiers. We’ve got a full schedule – a whopping nine fixtures, and an awful lot of things that could, or could not be decided. The headline news is that Scotland (who are playing England tonight in a ‘friendly’ match at Hampden to mark the 150th anniversary of the first ever international football match) could become the first nation to qualify for the Euros – they need Norway and Georgia to draw in Group A.
