England fired up for Italy test

Published Add your comment

Roy Hodgson and Steven Gerrard have issued a joint demand for England to leave the Olympic Stadium with no regrets after their Euro 2012 quarter-final with Italy.

The Three Lions are aiming to reach their first semi-final since Euro 96 but, in order to do that, England must create their own little bit of history. Away from Wembley, they have never beaten a major nation in the knock-out stages of a tournament of any significance.

Manager and skipper have both called it a 50-50 game but, with the margins so fine, they are determined nothing should be lost for lack of effort. Hodgson said: "Someone is going to lose and whoever loses is going to be very sad."
