    Match Preview

    The Amazonian conditions look to make this tough opening 2014 World Cup game for both England and Italy even harder on June 14. With both sides vying with Uruguay for just two qualification spots in Group D, this fixture could prove to be the most important game in the group. Former England and Arsenal winger Ray Parlour thinks so, read his thoughts on England's World Cup chances.

    This will be second meeting at a World Cup finals - after Italy triumphed 2-1 in the Third Place Playoff on home soil back in 1990. After losing on penalties to the Italians at Euro 2012, England gained revenge with a 2-1 friendly win two months later and they'll hope to make it back-to-back wins against a side who have only won once in their last six games.

    England will surely be looking to Rooney and Sturridge to fire them to victory in Brazil, for those looking to place goalscorer bets on this fixture. Meanwhile, Balotelli is set to lead the line as Italy's main attacking outlet this summer.
