Venue: Wembley Stadium (London)
Far from their utmost best in recent years, England have repeatedly failed to hit their former high marks from time past. But with a pretty solid squad to present this time around, there is real belief around the country that they can go all the way to secure Euro success.
The heroics from the 2018 World Cup still fresh in their memories, Croatia will feel quite confident about their chances in this competition. Sporting a couple of talented players in their ranks, the Blazers are one side to keep an eye on in the coming weeks.
England vs Croatia Team News
It is no longer news that England have struggled in recent tournaments, struggling to rub shoulders with fellow top-rated European nations. In fact, their supporters are growing increasingly frustrated at their lengthy trophy draught.
It goes without saying that the Three Lions will have their sights set on the grand prize in this competition, but will need to be at their utmost best to put forth a strong challenge. So far, there isn’t so much to suggest the Englishmen will turn heads here.
Their Euro warmups were nothing to write home about, managing fortuitous 1-0 victories over the likes of Austria and Romania. In fact, they needed a penalty kick – expertly tucked in by Rashford – to safely see off the lowly Romanians.
With their Euro 2020 campaign set to kick-off, there is worry about the Three Lions’ ability to compete with the continent’s heavyweights. Also, Southgate has come under intense scrutiny since arriving at the England dugout, and the young manager will be out to prove his critics wrong.
First step in the right direction would be sweeping Croatia aside in this tricky clash. Dalic’s men will remember their famous victory over their English counterpart in the previous edition of the World Cup, where they sent them crashing in the semifinals.
So much has happened since that shocking win, and Croatia aren’t exactly in as good a place as they were at the time. To book a ticket to the Euro finals, there were a few hiccups along the way, but they managed to squeeze their way past the qualifiers.
We think it might be better not to make mention of their Nations League campaign, and we will just leave it at that. If the Blazers are to enjoy another fairytale run in Europe, they must harness that massive 2018 spirit. Will Dalic’s men shock the footballing world again? Unlikely but possible.

England vs Croatia Predictions
Without any form of urgency in attack, England have struggled to score goals, managing only six in their previous four. Also, they have a propensity for conceding – one factor that the Croatians will be more than happy to exploit.
As it will be tricky to pick out an outright winner, our expert tipsters feel we should have a foray into the goal market instead. Our wager will be on both sides hitting the target, in what should be an exciting game in London.
