After winning their qualifying group convincingly, the Gareth Southgate-led side embarks upon their EURO 2020 campaign by locking heads against the 2018 World Cup finalists, Croatia. The Three Lions are coming on the back of an impressive international record after reaching the semi-finals of both FIFA World Cup and Nations League, and their charismatic squad has only grown by leaps.
On the other side, Luka Modric-led Croatia possesses some of the brightest veterans of the modern-era generation. Yet their UEFA Nations League results were disappointing. The Croatian team suffered losses at the hands of Spain and England in 2018 and Portugal, Sweden and France in 2020.
However, England is not the favourites to win this context as there have been some concerns over Gareth Southgate’s tactical approach. With both teams knocking each other out in international tournaments, this fixture is surely going to exceed expectations.
