On their way back? A last minute win over Poland on the back of a 1-1 draw with Ukraine.
Not sure I'd see that a great progression, it certainly wouldn't be sold that way if it were England, regardless of the performances.
Beating Poland away is no mean feat. Of course they are far from world beater, not claiming that but they are certainly better than they were a year ago. Holland are probably making the bigger strides thus far from what I have seen. Their decent young talent are gaining confidence game by game.
It is a lot easier than it was even 6 months ago, Poland on a major dip and have lost both home games in the Nations League. They are also the first team relegated in the competition. Italy haven't improved as yet but not getting any worse, which is a start.
