Italy, Donnarumma to start against England

Gianluigi Donnarumma is reportedly set to start for Italy against England on Tuesday’s friendly.

Gazzetta dello Sport claims that interim manager Luigi Di Biagio will make a number of changes as his Azzurri side face the Three Lions at Wembley.

Donnarumma is expected to replace Gianluigi Buffon in goal after Buffon played the full 90 minutes in Friday evening’s 2-0 friendly defeat to Argentina.

As well as Donnarumma, Leonardo Spinazzola, Matteo Darmian, Bryan Cristante, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Andrea Belotti are expected to start at Wembley.

Despite numerous player changes Di Biagio will keep the 4-3-3 formation that was used against Argentina.
