Chalobah unused substitute as Sancho makes England debut in Croatia draw

Harry Kane

Gareth Southgate's side, who will now prepare to face Spain on Monday, would have been looking to exact some form of retribution against the country that knocked them out of the World Cup in the semi-finals in the summer.

"We don't want to overburden players. We have to keep getting in those situations".

The home side got the match under way and tried to get the ball forward immediately, but England got it clear.

England enters having lost its only UEFA Nations League bout, falling to Spain 2-1.

Going into a match with a four-man defence for the first time in a year, which Gareth Southgate hoped would lead to more possession for his side, England offered far more in the early stages of the second period.

Croatia came to life as the 20-minute mark approached, Domagoj Vida and Ante Rebic combining to win a corner that was played short and gave Ivan Perisic a chance to fire in a shot that was blocked.

So, if anyone asks you why is Croatia vs England being played behind closed doors?

Andrej Kramaric's bouncing strike was stopped by Pickford before Rashford, struggling to get into the game, could not make the most of a Kane pass that opened up space down the left.

However, more than ten countries, including Ireland, showed a lack of appetite for increasing the EU's climate target. He recommended that Vietnam shift into a low-carbon economy, with a focus on the development of renewable energies .

Gareth Southgate has backed England captain Harry Kane to break his goal drought after going six worldwide games without scoring.

"We've had success building with the three and with Eric in that position it's flawless for him to drop in, so that at times was the idea", Southgate told Sky Sports.

Boring would also be an accurate way to sum up the stalemate as the players played in an empty stadium due to controversy dating back to 2015.

"We could easily hear the ones on the hill", said Dier.

It got no better for Rashford two minutes later, when the Manchester United frontman failed to slot past the goalkeeper after being played through on goal by Raheem Sterling. "I don't know who it is good for".

Kramaric sliced wide before Croatia made the night's first change, Perisic making way for Marko Pjaca and the substitute nearly making an instant impact with an effort that curled wide.

History boy Sancho showed flashes of excitement after his 78th-minute introduction, with his threatening late cross causing problems in a match that ended goalless.

A completely miscued finish was followed by a failure to test Livakovic from a glorious position, squandering two chances to hand England the lead.
