England football team in the Nations League: what TV channel are the matches on?  

England's sorry Nations League campaign plummeted to new depths on Friday night as defeat to Italy saw them relegated from the top tier, with Gareth Southgate booed off in Rome.

With just one game remaining before England play their opening game of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, there are plenty of questions facing the England manager and his team.

England failed to win any of their four June fixtures and produced a meek response to their 4-0 Molineux mauling against Hungary, with Giacomo Raspadori sealing Roberto Mancini's Italy victory on Friday night.

A fifth straight match without a win means Southgate's men have been relegated from Group A of the Nations League - a competition they finished third in three years ago - with a game to spare against Germany tomorrow.

Who do England play next?

The national team now face a home match against Germany at Wembley tonight.

When are the matches?

  • Italy 1 England 0, (San Siro Stadium, Rome)

  • England vs Germany, Wembley, Monday Sept 26, 7.45pm

How can I watch the matches on TV?

Channel 4 have the rights for all England's Nations League fixtures.

What is the latest news?

Gareth Southgate admitted the negativity around him is "not healthy" for the team and urged England fans to vent any frustration at him rather than the players ahead of tomorrow's World Cup send-off against Germany.

England's five-game winless run is their longest since 2014 and Friday's meek 1-0 loss at absentee-hit Italy saw them relegated from the Nations League's top tier with a game to spare.

Tomorrow's clash with Germany is a dead rubber as a result, but it remains key for England in terms of improving the mood and rebuilding confidence in their final match before the World Cup.

There is an air of negativity around the team with just 57 days to go until the Group B opener against Iran and Southgate says supporters need to get behind the players, whatever their feelings are about him.

The England boss was subjected to chants of "you're getting sacked in the morning" during June's 4-0 loss to Hungary in their last home match and then booed by some travelling fans in Milan.

"We've got 90,000 people, the stadium's sold out," Southgate said ahead of the Group A3 encounter. "People want to come and see this team play.

"That's because the players have done an unbelievable job for six years. We were on the back of a really difficult time, in terms of relationship with the fans, at the start of that journey.

"Slowly we've built the (tournament) finishes that have been discussed already in this room. Of course it's not healthy for the team to be having this noise around them. I fully understand that. But it's for me to take responsibility, it's for me to allow them to go and play. I want them to feel the freedom.

"I think they know that we always talk about that within the training ground and on the training pitch. I would urge the supporters to get behind the team.

"How they deal with me at the end or whenever, on the phone-ins or whatever else, is completely different. But this is their last chance to see the boys before they go to the World Cup and we're all in it together.

"We can only succeed if we're all pushing in the same direction and we've all got that positive energy towards doing well. What happens to me is irrelevant, frankly. It's about the team. The most important thing is the team and the success of the team."
