Croatia 0-0 England

Syndicate Post image

The goalless draw in Rijeka secured England and Croatia their first point of the Nations League, though Kane anticipates a far sterner test against Spain.

Following the match, Dier reflected on the first game England had ever played behind closed doors, although he noted the presence of a handful of England fans on a hill overlooking the ground.

Ivan Perisic's blocked effort was the best they managed in the first half until overlapping Pivaric fired over a cross to Andrej Kramaric, with the former Leicester striker's mishit attempt stopped by Jordan Pickford. The all-action Croatian wide-man put in another quality display on Friday evening.

Mario Mandzukic scored the winning goal to end England's World Cup dream 93 days ago in Moscow, but without the Juventus striker, who has since retired from global football, Croatia lacked a focal point up front.

Southgate said: "The first half was pretty even but we had a very good chance from a corner, which we probably should have got on the end of".

However, whilst Sancho was the only one of these players to make an appearance, creativity was not the main problem.

"Because England fans haven't been convicted of anything like that and yet those regular supporters who travel all over the place supporting the team are now locked out of a match and not able to support them".

Eric Dier and Harry Kane headed against the woodwork for the visitors while Marcus Rashford spurned two clear opportunities as England missed out on a first win in the new competition.

The Liverpool midfielder was the more advanced of the two as Dier sat at the base with Henderson to his right and Chelsea's Ross Barkley on his left.

Southgate's side then attacked, only for a neat passing move to break down when Jordan Henderson was unable to find the final ball.

"With the young players we have coming through and their positions, having wingers would suit us as well".

"He did something that none of the rest could do and that's control the tempo of a football match and when we talk about England not controlling a game, that's the thing the likes of Pirlo, Modric, Xabi Alonso and Xavi can do - they're the type of players you need at worldwide level if you want to control games".

"I set a standard for myself and I want to reach that standard in every game I play". His performance begs the question as to whether players should be starting for England if they are not for their club. The reverse fixture ended 2-1 to Spain, and Luis Enrique's team backed up their victory with a 5-0 victory over Croatia. "He can be a massive player for us going forward".
