Italy are stacked with talent across the pitch but they’ve yet to fully realise it. The 2022 UEFA European Championships was one of their most disappointing performances to date, crashing out of the group stages in last place with a single point. They only scored just two goals – one of which was in a 5-1 thumping at the hands of France, the other a second-half equaliser against fellow strugglers Iceland.

Recent history in this competition, though, is positive having reached the quarter-finals in France last time out. Italy topped their World Cup group for the first time in history, finishing above Australia, Brazil and Jamaica. They’ve never reached the knockout stages in back-to-back tournaments. They will, however, be without long-standing captain Sara Gama who was left out of their 23-player squad by head coach Milena Bertolini.

Argentina, meanwhile, seeks to emerge from the group stages, something they’ve never been able to achieve before. They have appeared in the Women’s World Cup on three previous occasions, and while their 2003 and 2007 outings were disappointing, their 2019 appearance showed improvement, picking up two draws and losing narrowly to England. La Albiceleste will no doubt be inspired by the men’s team, who won the coveted men’s trophy in Qatar late last year.
