England and Italy meet internationally for the first time since 2002 in a Friendly where Italy posted the 2-1 road win on English soil. England won two games and tied once in Group play. The club started Euro 2012 with a 1-1 draw with France and they defeated Sweden 3-2 in their second game of the tournament. England qualified for the knockout rounds following a 1-0 win against host nation Ukraine to win Group D with 7 points. Wayne Rooney returned to international play following a two game suspension with the game winning goal that advanced the English into the quarterfinals. The English failed to qualify for the 2008 European Championship and went as far as the quarterfinals in 2004. The 2010 World Cup saw England enter the round of 16 where they fell 4-1 to eventual third place finisher Germany. Italy was second in Group C with five points. They drew with Spain and Croatia to begin the European Championships by identical scores of 1-1. Italy then defeated Ireland 2-0 in their final Group C match to qualify for the quarterfinal round.

In the 2008 European Football Championships Italy advanced as far as the quarterfinal round where they were eliminated by eventual champions Spain in goal kicks.
