With the seedings released by UEFA for the European Championships in France next summer, England could face Italy in the group stages for the third successive tournament.
This is due to the Three Lions and Antonio Conte's side being placed once again in different pots based on the UEFA coefficient ranking scheme.
Whilst it gives England a huge opportunity to seek vengeance for their defeats in the quarter-final at Euro 2012 and during the group stages in Brazil last summer, the chances of them being drawn together again is unlikely due to the tournament's expansion from 16 teams to 24.

However, another exciting and more realistic prospect for England fans looms. They could face one of the home nations - apart from Scotland, of course, who failed to qualify.
Such a prospect is more likely given that Wales, Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland have all been drawn into Pot 4, meaning there is a 50/50 chance for England to be drawn with one of them.
However, not all of those involved are particularly enthused by the possibility. Wales manager Chris Coleman, who has already expressed a desire not be grouped with England and avoid a 'battle of Britain', said: "We will play three games and we don't want it to all be about one of them."
Such a scenario, whilst exciting, would also far from benefit England given Wales' resounding performance in their qualifying group. Coleman's side surprised all and proved worthy competitors against Belgium, who boast the likes of Chelsea star Eden Hazard, Christian Benteke and Vincent Kompany.
With the draw for the 2016 European Championships due to take place on December 12, here's the best and worst draws England could face:
Best scenario - England, Ukraine, Hungary, Albania
Worst scenario - England, Italy, Poland, Wales
