The third edition of the UEFA Nations League has finally kicked off. Launched after the 2018 FIFA World Cup in 2018 to replace international friendly matches, we are looking forward to some friendly competition over the Summer months.
On Saturday 11th June, England will play Italy in the UEFA Nations League 2022 with kick-off starting at 7.45 pm. The last time England played Italy was in the UEFA Euro 2020 at Wembley Stadium, going down to a penalty shoot-out to decide the score after extra time. In the end, Italy won 3-2 and became the UEFA EURO 2020 champions a second time.
As a brand with rich British heritage, we are very proud to support our team, however we want to get to know our competition and their watches a little better.
Italy’s defender, Leonardo Bonucci, started his football career at 18 years old and has since established himself to be one of the best defenders in the world. Bonucci is a brand ambassador for Breil, whose watches he has been spotted sporting a number of times throughout the year. His style is very minimal, keeping his watches simple. The perfect match for one of these watches is our Perpetua III Single Watch Winder. Available in either Black or Walnut, this will perfectly complement the beautiful minimalism of the Breil range of watches.
Gianluigi Donnarumma, the goalkeeper for Paris Saint-Germain, became the youngest goalkeeper to play for Italy at just 17 years of age. Donnarumma has quite the watch collection having been pictured with various watches over the years, one of our favourites being the Rolex Daytona Cosmograph in Oyster Steel and Black Dial.
Due to his impressive watch collection, we would match Donnarumma with our Brompton Ten Watch Box. The box comes in either a rich brown or deep black and is handcrafted in solid wood and bound in crocodile pattern leather. A high-quality suede lining interior will protect the watches from any scratches, making this the perfect watch box for any luxury watch collector, ensuring their pieces are kept safe and secure under lock and key.
Finally, we have Alessandro Florenzi, playing right-back for Serie A club Milan. Favouring the Omega Seamaster Diver in gold and a black ceramic bezel, we would recommend the Berkeley Double Watch Slipcase for this luxury piece.
Hand-stitched and lined with soft suede, it is the perfect travel accessory coming in colours; black, tan, grey and blue. Holding up to two watches, this is the perfect option for on-the-go. Whether you are travelling for business or pleasure, the Berkeley Slipcase will ensure your watches arrive safe and sound.
