England vs Croatia / League of Nations – No one could have predicted that England and Croatia would, after the introductory defeat from Spain, in this last match of the League of Nations, directly decide on the first place in the group. However, both teams have managed to revenge to the Spaniards in the meantime, while they played 0-0 in their mutual duel in Zagreb, so they now have four points won, while the leading Spain currently has six points but they also played four matches in the League of Nations.
England vs Croatia begins 18.11.2018 at 15:00 CET
This actually means that the Spaniards would stay in the first place only if the English and Croatian play a draw at Wembley, while the victory of these teams would bring them the first place in the group, in which case the Spaniards would be second and the defeated team would go in League of Nations “B”. That is why it is quite clear that the English will do their utmost best to come to a victory at Wembley on Sunday, especially after they celebrated with 3-2 over Spain in their last performance in the League Nations.
Previously they played 0-0 against Croatia in Zagreb and lost at home from Spain with 2-1, but they have managed to turn it all in their favour and now have a great chance to win the first place in the group by defeating the Croats. But in the case of a draw and a defeat, they could also be second or a third, so everything is still open. Otherwise, the English have three days ago, in the same field, celebrated a 3-0 win in a friendly match with the United States, while we also still need to add that the defenders Trippier, Maguire, Gomez and Rose are all out of action due to injury.
Probable lineups England: Pickford – Walker, Stones, Keane, Shaw – Henderson, Dier, Alli – Sterling – Rashford, Kane
We have already said for the team of Croatia that they now at Wembley have the chance to win the first place in this group of the League of Nations, although this seemed to be an impossible mission after being defeated in their first appearance with 6-0 on a hosting in Spain. After that, they only played 0-0 against England on their field, but that victory in Spain has brought them back in the game, so they were highly motivated in that home match with the Spaniards.
Namely, the current world vice-champions have played a great match three days ago at Zagreb’s Maksimir, which was after a long time filled to the last place, so that they were certainly motivated by the always unpleasant Spaniards. In the end, the Croats have after a big fight and a lot of excitement scored a goal thanks to Jedvaj in the 93rd minute and celebrated a 3-2 victory, and they are now even in the position to come to the first place in the group. We should also add that the injured defenders Pivaric and Strinic will not be able to play this time.
Probable lineups Croatia: Kalinic – Vrsaljko, Lovren, Vida, Jedvaj – Rakitic, Brozovic – Rebic, Modric, Perisic – Kramaric
England vs Croatia PICK
