On Tuesday England return to Wembley Stadium to take on Italy in their latest friendly building up to this summer’s World Cup in Russia.

Gareth Southgate named four uncapped players in the squad for the games against the Netherlands and the Azzurri and on Friday they secured a 1-0 victory, with Manchester United‘s Jesse Lingard scoring the only goal of the game.

Six years have passed since the Three Lions last beat Italy though; the 2-1 win in Bern was a welcome result after the Azzurri knocked England out of Euro 2012 two months earlier.

As would be expected for a friendly after an international tournament, the team had an experimental feel to it.

But how well do you remember the side? Take our quiz and pick out the squad that Roy Hodgson selected the last time England beat Italy.
