Roberto Mancini’s side failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, but has since changed hands and won all three group matches, bypassing Turkey, Switzerland and Wales to Al Saif.
However, they have had the advantage of playing all three games in front of their home crowd at the Stadio Olimpico and Saturday’s trip to London will present a different challenge.
They will face Austria, who finished second behind the Netherlands in Group C and qualified after a stunning victory over Ukraine in their last match.
