The Three Lions will be dreaming of a European Championship win this summer, especially with the final at Wembley, while Croatia will be looking to go one better than they did at the 2018 World Cup when they finished runners-up.

England vs Croatia build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
The summer of 2018 was a good one for England as they reached the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time in 28 years. However, their journey was brought to an end by Croatia at the semi-finals, extending fans’ wait for football to come home. Euro 2020 is the next opportunity, and it’s a big one as the final is being held at Wembley – as it was in 1996 when David Baddiel, Frank Skinner and the Lightning Seeds penned that famous song. Qualification for Euro 2020 was straightforward, with England winning seven and losing one of their eight games, only dropping points against Czech Republic when top spot had been secured.
Croatia were made to work harder for their qualification to Euro 2020 despite finishing top of Group E. Just five points separated Croatia and fourth-placed Hungary, with Wales and Slovakia sandwiched in between, and all four sides actually qualified for the tournament after the Nations League play-offs. It has been a strange period for Croatia post-2018 and their World Cup final appearance, as Zlatko Dalic’s side finished bottom of their Nations League group, only saved from relegation by a revamp. They then finished third in their next Nations League group, avoiding relegation thanks to their one superior goal difference over Sweden.
- England (vs Romania): Johnstone; Godfrey*, White, Mings, Shaw; Ward-Prowse*, Phillips; Sancho, Grealish, Rashford; Calvert-Lewin.
- Croatia (vs Belgium): Livakovic; Vrsaljko, Vida, Caleta-CAr, Barisic; Modric, Brozovic, Kovacic; Rebic, Petkovic, Perisic.
James Ward-Prowse has left the England set up after the warm-up matches, as have Jesse Lingard, Aaron Ramsdale, Ollie Watkins and Ben Godfrey. Gareth Southgate will be expecting to call upon all of his squad with the exception of Harry Maguire who has only just returned to training.
Croatia got through their warm up matches without any injury concerns and will have a full-strength squad from which to choose.

Players to watch:
- England: The Three Lions’ hopes of Euro 2020 glory seem to rest on Harry Kane and the Tottenham Hotspur striker could do with another fast start to a major tournament. At the 2018 World Cup, Kane scored twice in England’s opener, a 2-1 win over Tunisia, a performance that got him on the way to winning the Golden Boot. However, Kane failed to score after the last-16 and drew a blank in the semi-final against Croatia, being denied what could have been the winner by an excellent save. Kane had a brilliant 2020/21 on a personal level, finishing as the Premier League’s top scorer and assist king, but wants to leave Tottenham this summer and he can add even more interest with a good tournament here.
- Croatia: Looking to get the goals for Croatia will be Andrej Kramaric who had an excellent season in the Bundesliga with Hoffenheim. The former Leicester City man scored 20 goals in 28 Bundesliga matches as Hoffenheim finished 11th, an underwhelming position considering their start, though that wasn’t Kramaric’s fault. However, he will need to improve on his recent record for Croatia, having scored just one goal in his past 11 caps after managing three in three between November 2018 and March 2019.
