Croatia v England betting preview
Croatia have suffered abrupt comedowns following impressive World Cup campaign.Croatia managed to reach the final of the World Cup in Russia, where they fell 2-4 at the hands of Didier Deschamps' France. They returned to action last month with a 1-1 away day with Portugal in an international friendly but that was followed by a 6-0 thumping at the hands of Spain in their opening match in the UEFA Nations League. Anyway, the Blazers have found the net in each of their last 20 home games stretching back to 2013 and are likely to exploit England's defensive weaknesses.
Dejan Lovren and Ante Rebic have returned to the squad after missing the defeat to Spain, while Sime Vrsaljko, Marcelo Brozovic, Borna Barisic, Lovre Kalinic and Duje Cop have all withdrawn through injury. Mario Mandzukic retired from international football after the World Cup, meaning that Ivan Santini and Andrej Kramaric are in contention for the central striker berth. Ivan Perisic and Ante Rebic are favourites to play as wingers while Ivan Rakitic, Mateo Kovacic and Luka Modric will form an extremely technical midfield. Danijel Subasic retired after the 2018 World Cup, meaning that Dominik Livakovic is expected to start between the posts.
England will be looking for revenge against Croatia after losing at the World CupEngland were one of the teams knocked out by Croatia in their run to the final as Mario Mandzukic netted in the extra time to give his country a 2-1 win. The Three Lions' UEFA Nations League campaign certainly didn’t get off to a great start with a 2-1 defeat to Spain at Wembley Stadium. Few days later, Harry Kane & co. managed to beat Switzerland in a friendly fixture. As a result, Gareth Southgate’s men have won just two of their last seven matches in ninety minutes, while suffering four defeats during that time. They have only kept 3 clean sheets in their last 12 outings in al competitions.
Luke Shaw and James Tarkowski are injured and have been replaced by Ben Chilwell and debutant Lewis Dunk. Southgate is dealing with the absence of players such as Dele Alli, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Jesse Lingard and Fabian Delph. As a result, Danny Rose is expected to start at left wing-back while Harry Winks has a great chance to make his first international appearence in more than a year. Up front, Harry Kane will be flanked The likes of James Maddison, Mason Mount and Jadon Sancho have been called for the first time..
