Match Preview

It’s winner-takes-all this weekend in the UEFA Nations League (UNL) as England welcome Croatia to Wembley knowing a win will see them secure top spot in Group 4, and earn them a place in next summer’s finals. Since defeat to Spain in their opening group game, England have won three of their last four matches (W3, D1).
It was another comfortable victory on home soil for England on Thursday night as they dispatched the USA 3-0 in a friendly international. It’s now just one defeat at home for the ‘Three Lions’ in 17 matches (W12, D4, L1), while four of their previous five home victories have been to nil.
An injury-time goal secured a memorable 3-2 win for Croatia against Spain midweek, blowing the group wide open. If they can secure a third successive victory at Wembley on Sunday, they will qualify as group winners. Always entertaining, both teams have scored in eight of the last ten matches the ‘Vatreni’ have featured in.
England have won four of nine H2H meetings between these sides (W4, D2, L3) with both teams scoring in six of those encounters. Each of England’s four wins against Croatia have been by a margin of two or more goals.
Players to watch: England captain Harry Kane has failed to find the back of the net in each of his last eight international games – his longest-ever run without a goal for his country.
Defender Tin Jedvaj is a man in-form. He scored two for Croatia against Spain on Thursday, and netted two in his previous four club appearances for Bayer Leverkusen.
Stat attack: England have conceded just five goals in their previous ten matches on English soil.
Croatia have averaged 2.4 yellow cards per match over their last five fixtures.
There have been over 2.5 match goals in both of England’s, and Croatia’s, last two matches.
