England's World Cup chances have been dealt another blow after FIFA brought forward the kick-off time for their game in Manaus against Italy by three hours.

The game was scheduled to take place on June 14 at 9pm local time (2am UK time), but it has has now been moved to 6pm (11pm).

England had hoped to kick-off at night, but FIFA changed the time following pressure from broadcasters, who were concerned about viewing figures.
