On Sunday, Croatia will head to the Wembley stadium to lock horns with the England in the nail-biting Nations League.
After a dramatic last minute goal that help Croatia dismantle Spain 3-2 has landed them at Group 4 in League A. Despite entering Sunday with a negative-five goal differential, a knock from Croatia in this match will land them up at 1st position. But a slight hiccup with team as Croatia face injuries from right-back Sime Vrsaljko and goalkeeper Danijel Subasic following their defeat of Russia in the quarter-final.
This is where England will find a mere advantage as the squad have no injury concerns ahead of the match. It will be the same team that beat Sweden 2-0 last weekend. The last time England took on Croatia, they beat them 5-1 to bag a place in the 2010 World Cup with the assistance of Steven Gerrard, Wayne Rooney and David Beckham.
But a friendly reminder that this defeated team was finalist of 2018 World Cup.
Pickford (GK) ; Walker, Gomez, Maguire, Shaw; Alli, Henderson, Barkley; Sterling, Kane, Rashford
Kalinic (GK); Vrsaljko, Lovren, Vida, Jedvaj; Modric, Brozovic, Rakitic; Kramaric, Rebic, Perisic
My PlayerzPot XI:
Croatia has always been a risky team to bet on but England is in a good shape. There are chances of England winning the match but there is slight glitch as Croatia might pace up towards the end.
Predicted Score: England 2-1 Croatia.
