England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Team News

Gareth Southgate's team finished top of Group A in qualifying, winning seven of the eight qualifying games. Their only loss was to the Czech Republic away in Prague. England fans will be hoping home advantage can serve them well, they've never lost in 90 minutes in a major competition at the stadium.

Gareth Southgate, England manager...

"We obviously had the disappointment in Moscow. We've had two very close games since then. They are a very experienced team, with outstanding players, great mentality, incredible spirit and tactically adaptable, so they really are a big challenge for us for our first game. But we know that we have been able to beat them."

England Predicted Lineup

Pickford; Walker, Stones, Mings, Chilwell; Phillips, Rice; Sterling, Mount, Foden; Kane

Key Player: Harry Kane

With the likes of Jack Grealish, Jadon Sancho and Raheem Sterling on display, many eyes will be on England's young talent. But it will be the experienced captain Kane that can provid the focal point in attack. Still one of the most feared strikers in the Premier League with Tottenham, he has shown his adaptability this season when dropping off the front line to pick the ball up, with his assist tally almost as impressive as his goals. Formed a formidable partnership with Heung-min Son at club level, who can he form a similar partnership with at on the International stage?

Croatia 🇭🇷 Team News

Croatia are making their fifth successive European Championship finals. They finished qualification as winners of Group E with 17 points, three points ahead of runners-up Wales. Known as strong starters to major tournaments, they've never been beaten on Matchday 1 (W4 D1).

Zlatko Dalić, Croatia coach...

"We will pick the best team we can for this match, we have quality players and we are not afraid. We know that England are very fast, very aggressive in attack, they have top players. We will need to respond with a solid block, but also will look out for possession and try to attack, as only defending will not bring us any good."

Croatia Predicted Lineup

Livaković; Vrsaljko, Ćaleta-Car, Vida, Gvardiol; Brozović; Kramarić, Modrić, Kovačić, Perišić; Rebić

Key Player: Luka Modric

The stand out achiever in the Croatian side, still pulling the strings alongside Toni Kroos in the Real Madrid midfield. He may be tiny in stature but his impact on games is huge. The 2018 Ballon d'Or winner and player of the tournament at the 2018 World Cup will want to continue the one-upmanship against his former Tottenham team-mates.

England v Croatia Head to Head

After falling behind, late goals from Jesse Lingard and Harry Kane gave England victory in the latest instalment of this fixture in the Nations League. However, I'm sure the England players would swap that victory for the World Cup semi-final extra-time defeat at the hands of the Croats. These are two very evenly matched teams and one moment of brilliance could be all that separates them.

England v Croatia Match Prediction

This will again be a really tight affair and it's very difficult to split them. A point here will not be a disaster for either side. That said, both teams will play with attacking intent and try to win the game, possibly a 1-1 draw on the cards.
