    Tale of two benches?

    If the two sets of substitutes come into it today, Hansi Flick will certainly have the stronger hand to pick from.

    Premier League stars Kai Havertz and Ilkay Gundogan wait in the wings for Germany, as well as the highly-promising Junior Musiala.

    Scamacca offered opportunity on big stage

    While Italy may be experimenting tonight, It offers striker Gianluca Scamacca an opportunity to impress on the biggest stage.

    The 23-year-old Sassuolo star has received interest from a host of Europe's biggest clubs, including Arsenal.

    Chance for Werner to find form

    It's safe to say club form has deserted Timo Werner since his move to Chelsea from RB Leipzig.

    It'll be interesting to see how he does tonight, after being given the nod over club teammate Kai Havertz.

    England fall at first hurdle

    These two teams will no doubt have had one eye on the Puskas Arena, as the other two sides in this group got things going.

    Hungary picked up a shock 1-0 win over England, instantly blowing this group wide open.

    No World Cup for Italy to prepare for

    It looks clear to see Italy's thoughts on this Nations League competition, with the majority of their big names absent today.

    With no World Cup to prepare for, perhaps it's time to look for the future for Roberto Mancini.

    Rudiger's first appearance as a Galactico

    Antonio Rudiger's long-awaited move to Real Madrid was finally confirmed a few days ago.

    While the former Chelsea man has never shown his best at the international level, a win to kick off the Nations League would be great for confidence going into a massive individual season.
